We're all unique in our own ways, No student is the same. I am a firm believer that when it comes to fighting and combatives, it takes a dedicated, time and a meticulous attention to detail to get it "right". Therefore the sessions with me are tailored to fit the individual's physical capabilities while teaching real fight mechanics while pushing past our limits!! As a martial art practitioner with over 10 years experience, fighting and coaching is what I love to do. To see a student transform from normal person to a fighter. I've come to view teaching in a sense where each student that I come across, is a piece of raw metal waiting to be for...

Your boxing questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much are boxing classes?

  • Wraps or gauze: $5 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?
