Derek S. says, "I apologize to the man. When I watched him at his demonstration I was cocky and thought I knew it all. I was verbal out of line and challenged him. So he showed me up and embarrassed me and I was angry. 2 years later I showed up and took lessons and he helped me work on myself. I am grateful and humbled. I'm not currently taking lessons but I train and use what I had learned." Read more

I've been studying Wing Chun since 1995. Of course, all the experience in the world doesn't mean much if you don't know how to impart that knowledge, but I've been blessed with an adaptable teaching style. What does that mean? If you want just the bare bones information, I can keep it at surface level. If you want more in-depth knowledge that borders on the geeky, I can have those discussions too.

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?

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?
