WHO WE ARE
We are a diverse community. Warm, welcoming and supportive, we work hard while having fun. Our lessons are rooted in fundamentally sound boxing with a progressive training curriculum designed to teach you the art of boxing while you get fit.
We foster an inclusive space for unifying community and self awareness through boxing.
**The class offerings listed below have been suspended until further notice (stupid COVID). As such, we will be using a Bag Therapy format.**
We have designed our program to help guide students through a Beginner level of Boxing and beyond. Sparring is NOT required in any of our classes.
"Newbie" Level - All beginners must start here. This is an intro to the fundamentals. In this class you will learn Stance, 4 fundamental punches, basic combos and how to Parry, while simultaneously improving your fitness level. Each weeks instruction builds on the previous weeks information and will prepare you for the Box 1 classes. This class is open to all levels.
Beginner/Beginner Intermediate - Students will build on their foundation by learning more punches, more complex footwork and combos, head movement & counterpunching while further improving their fitness level. Students will need to complete the Essentials series in order to attend to these classes.
BOX 2 / SPAR
**SPARRING IS ON HOLD UNTIL PHASE 4**
Beginner Advanced/Intermediate/Advanced - This class will teach you more Head Movement, more ways to block and counter, Feints and more. Must complete Box 1 in order to be invited to this level.
