Your boxing questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much are boxing classes?

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.

A Shining Star: Our Review of Mr. Kenneth at Friends Family Martial Arts From the moment our children stepped into Friends Family Martial Arts, Mr. Kenneth has been an absolute gem. Their journey began with zero experience in any discipline, and we were initially apprehensive about how they would adapt. Thankfully, those worries quickly dissipated thanks to Mr. Kenneth's exceptional guidance. His professionalism shines through in every interaction. He creates a structured and focused learning environment, while simultaneously fostering a sense of camaraderie and fun. This balance has been instrumental in motivating our children and keeping them engaged. But Mr. Kenneth's influence extends far beyond physical skills. He instills in his students valuable life lessons like discipline, respect, and perseverance. We've witnessed a remarkable growth in our children's moral compass, and we firmly believe that Mr. Kenneth's positive reinforcement plays a significant role in this development. The confidence Mr. Kenneth has nurtured in our children is truly remarkable. They approach challenges with a newfound determination, and their self-belief continues to soar. This newfound confidence extends beyond the dojo, radiating into their academics and everyday interactions. If you're looking for an instructor who combines professionalism with genuine care, then Mr. Kenneth is the shining star you've been searching for. His dedication to his students' physical and moral development is truly unmatched. We wholeheartedly recommend Friends Family Martial Arts and, especially, the incredible Mr. Kenneth!
