Philadelphia has a rich history in Boxing. One of our very own boxing trainers, Robert “The Wiz” Hill, had been boxing at the legendary Blue Horizon on North Broad Street since 1976! Now, it is time for you to continue this tradition and pass on the boxing legacy!
Our boxing classes will help you develop lighting fast hand speed through progressive focus mitt combinations. You will learn one of boxing’s trademarks, which is how to be evasive through the use of good footwork and head movement.
We have all types of members taking the boxing classes. We have MMA competitors trying to become more well rounded in the class, as well as white collar workers looking to take their fitness to the next level. Our boxing classes are for everyone! The instructors train members to help them reach his or her individual goals.
The class is a great supplement to one’s current Mixed Martial Arts or Muay Thai training. The instructors also show how each technique relates to MMA and Muay Thai and what modifications would be necessary in order to use the technique successfully in those sports as well.
Boxing truly is an art and is referred to as “the sweet science” because of it’s technical beauty. Not only a combat sport, boxing is an absolutely awesome workout. Members of our boxing program get some of the best cardio training possible, with an emphasis on strength training as well. Take a look at any boxer and you will quickly notice the muscle tone one attains through a rigorous boxing workout. Because the body is trained to absorb strong punches, the ab and core workouts are absolutely amazing!
The boxing classes are included in both our Muay Thai Program and our MMA program.
