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

Sharon O. says, "I joined a gym about 5 yrs. ago and I started training with a personal trainer. I was on my way to achieving my goals of losing weight and building muscle. Things were going well for a few years until I tore my rotator cuff about a year ago and my trainer moved out of state. I was in need of a new trainer and also needed direction on how to workout with a injured rotator cuff. I had met Marcus a few years ago at the gym when I took his Alpha class. I was impressed by his teaching of the class and thought he was a very knowledgeable trainer. He was attentive to everyone in the class and his workouts were tough. I thought Marcus might make an excellent trainer for me and decided to give him a try. I was so glad that I did. Marcus has been very good about tailoring an exercise program for a full body workout that always challenges me, but also protects my torn rotator cuff from further damage. He is very good with helping Clients reach their goals even when they have health or injury issues. In the short few months that I have been training with Marcus I have lost 2% body fat and gained 3 lbs. of muscle. I am impressed with his passion for working out and his knowledge of nutrition. In every workout session Marcus always encourages and motivates me to train harder and try new exercises. Marcus inspires me and has helped me so much in working out not only harder, but smarter and eating healthier. I am a much happier person inside and out as I get closer to achieving my goals and I couldn’t have done it without Marcus beside me. " 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.

  • 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?

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!

Sergio is an excellent instructor. 2 of my kids take krav maga with him and have not just gained skills but self esteem as well. He doesn't just teach skills but gives them life lessons as well.

I started training because I was very self conscious with my fitness abilities, and overall health. I Wanted a personal approach to improving my fitness abilities, and to become better in gym class (4th grade.) I feel that I am a lot stronger since I first started. Not only stronger, but it’s built my self esteem much higher than it was when I began training. I continue to work with Marcus because I feel that I still need more improvement, and I know that this is a good way to do it.

Dylan has been great to train with! He is friendly, relaxed, professional, and comfortable to work with. He knows his stuff and provides helpful advice and tips throughout the session. You can tell he is pationate about what he does. We work at a pace that isn't overwhelming, but still he makes the most out of the hour session. I always leave feeling good about what we've worked on!
