Amy M. says, "Eric is an amazing teacher. Patient, funny, and kind. I love that he adapts moves to work for MY body (I'm a little teapot, short and stout), and also that he fosters an atmosphere of respect and inclusion. He uses bits and pieces from many traditions to create a toolkit for each person that is both fun to learn and practical to use. I've taken lessons with him for years and brought my teen-aged niece and young daughter to learn self-defense as well. I can't recommend Kicking Dragon's Circle enough!" Read more

Your boxing questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much are boxing classes?

Boxing classes cost $25 to $35 per group class or $75 to $200 per month on average. Total prices depend on the location, experience, and how often you meet. On top of the cost of lessons, you may need to buy the following equipment:

  • Wraps or gauze: $5 to $20
  • Boxing gloves: $20 to $80
  • Mouth guard: $10 to $20

What are the weight classes in boxing?

There are 17 different weight classes in boxing that help prevent injury and promote fair fights. Only people in the same weight class can box with each other. The lightest class is called Strawweight and is for people that weigh 105 to 107 pounds. The largest is Heavyweight and is for people over 200 pounds.

Are boxing classes worth it?

Boxing classes are worth it if you're looking for a good whole-body workout or want to learn self-defense. Boxing is easier to learn and inexpensive compared to many gym memberships or martial arts classes.

Boxing is not only a good cardio workout, it also works out the arms, legs, and core. This fighting style also releases tension in a safe environment while helping you reach fitness goals.

How many boxing classes should I attend per week?

Most people attend boxing classes 1 to 3 times per week, though this depends on your budget and schedule. For the best results, consider exercising at the gym or at home in between classes to build strength and endurance.

What should I wear to a boxing class?

Wear comfortable, lightweight clothing and shoes to a boxing class. Most people wear shorts and a T-shirt or tank top. Remember to bring a water bottle and small towel to hydrate and remove sweat during the workout.

  • Read their reviews on Lessons and Google.
  • Choose a gym that is licensed and experienced.
  • Get a written estimate and schedule before the classes begin.
  • Follow a payment schedule instead of making large payments up front.

What questions should I ask boxing instructors?

When looking for local boxing classes, ask these questions:

  • How long have you been teaching boxing classes?
  • Are you licensed and insured?
  • How many students do you have?
  • Are you experienced teaching beginners?
  • Do you have any current openings?
  • Are there any other people in my weight class here?
  • How often would you recommend meeting based on my experience level?
  • Can I have an estimate or contract in writing?

Reviews for Calumet City boxing classes

Recent success stories from people in the Calumet City area.
Sebastian G.
Eric Miller, the head of Kicking Dragon's Circle Martial arts, is a fantastic teacher. I've been training for 30 years and competing in boxing and grappling for 10 years. I reached an impasse while sparring and competing so I reached out to Eric to ask for help. His ability to assess a person's strengths and weaknesses and build off of then is invaluable. I pretty much just go to him now when my coaches don't have any answers. I even signed up at an mma school with a weekly open gym just so I could invite Eric since his school is too far from me. During our first session Eric helped us learn more than we had in the last four weeks. He kind of reminds me of Dean Thomas in the sense that he seems to have an answer for everything except Eric's knowledge goes way beyond just grappling. I can't recommend this school enough!

I want to thank coach Anton, for helping my 10 year son on improving his basket skills. He was very knowledgeable and patience with my son and helping him on his fundamentals of the game, my son enjoyed the training. My son isn't the best at the sport, but coach made him feel confident in his game and in a short time he has improved in many areas and now my son says he wants to play for his school's team from the training.
