The cardio boxing & kickboxing is for all levels but will be geared towards just having a great workout. Every ability level and ages 13+ can participate. High level boxing will be geared toward those wanting to compete or improve their skills for a stand up fight/self defense! NOTE: Our instructors insurance coverage will not allow contact boxing at this time. We are looking for insurance that will allow sparring. Use of mits, bags, etc will be used but no sparring/contact boxing allowed at this time.
