comment What kind of stretching should I do before starting my boxing practice?
None, do some light calisthenics: Jumping jacks, air squats, little jump rope, little shadow boxing. Nothing high intensity, just get the heart rate up a bit for a couple of minutes.

comment How to win a street fight without putting anyone's life in danger?
"How to be a fighter without being a murderer ?" For starters don't get into fights. After that fights are chaos, you don't know what will happen.

comment Boxing - how to make a blunt “charging” of a heavier opponent, unaffordable for him?
This is what I have suggested to people in the pass, gotta move around them. When we would spare in our karate class I would often work with lower levels which tended to be much smaller than me. Getting into a punching match wasn't going to work. I would tell them move, get inside for a few good shots and then back out (unless you had a knockout shot available). If they wanted to stand and go toe to toe trading punches I was more than happy to do so with them.

Takedowns and kicks? Since the OP says "boxing" I am assuming the classic style of boxing, takedowns and leg kicks are not allowed.

comment How to defend yourself when you are outclassed?
Usually if someone chooses you as their target it was because they thought they could beat you, either through strength, age, experience, or some other factors (or combination of factors).

comment If Karate is supposed to be way of the empty-handed, then why does Gosoku-ryƫ use weapon katas?
My style is called Okinawa Kenpo Karate Kobudo to indicate we also covered weapons.

comment Drills for reducing your natural “flinch” reaction
SPEAR: Spontaneous Protection Enabling Accelerated Response. Protective SPEAR is the act when you are attempting to push danger away from you, which tends to be a natural response. I will modify and not say any attack, you can't do an ECT drill against a sniper with a long range scope and high powered rifle, but talking physical attacks.

comment Krav Maga, is it 100% legal for defense?
Ask a lawyer in the area where you live. IN general you can respond with equal amount of force in any given situation. That is general and there are exceptions.

comment Value in Breaking Boards?
Penn & Teller in their "Bullshit!" episode on Martial Arts covered board breaking a little bit, with Teller breaking some boards. I personally don't see value in board breaking.

comment How do I choose a boxing glove?
Competitions will often have requirements for gloves. For sparring and heavy bag I use 16oz gloves, personal preference. For choosing the size, try them on and see how they feel. Try different weight of gloves.

comment how to overcome “freeze”?
Practice and keep things simple. If a person has a dozen ways (just picking a number at random) to grab your wrist and you have a specific technique for escaping from each one then yes, choking is very likely. Don't over think, do.

comment Should political/religious discussions be allowed inside the training place?
Yup, their school, their rules. My previous karate school it was not uncommon for political talk with the head instructor before class started. Also talked about poker playing too,
