I can relate to this. I remember the High School days where if I got involved in an angry scuffles, I panic and just throw and kick and try to body slam the other guy, which usually just ends up being a 60 second smothering fest.
Now after a few years of boxing at home, then joining a gym and learning the basics, sparring - now having quit the Boxing gym but still shadow boxing at home for cardio - it makes you much calmer in a altercation. It's like you're automatically in your boxing stance when someone gets in your face or tries to attack you. You're no longer panicking or fighting all angry.
