I understand you are required to participate in a sport at USNA Boxing: from what iv seen, boxing is a big deal at the Academy. Are you issued boxing equipment or do you have to purchase your own??? Does training/fighting in the Brigade tournament count as a sport??? ECA's: Does a Midshipman (or Plebe) have time for more than one??? I'd be wanting to take boxing, jujitsu club, karate club, and long range shooting club...but i cant imagine how somebody could participate in those.
