Boxing

 

 

NOTE:  As of 4/16/21, this is the latest information we have concerning our new cardio boxing/kickboxing and advanced boxing classes. We will be setting up an open house date asap.  This is where you will come in and meet the instructors, purchase gloves, hand wraps, get waivers signed, purchase punch cards (we will charge per class), ask questions about the program and receive a rules sheet so class runes smoothly and everyone remains safe.

Our 2 instructors are in the process of getting insurance coverage on themselves for these classes.  We have officially built our metal structure that will hold our 6 bags plus the 3 bags already up.  Our hope is that we can start classes absolutely no later than May/June.  The cardio boxing & kickboxing is for all levels but will be geared towards having a great workout.  Everyone 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.
