Is for children 9 to 17 years-old interested in boxing and want to learn how to box. Your child will learn basic boxing skills while developing the conditioning of a boxer through jump rope and various boxing drills.

Each Youth Boxing Program workout incorporates:

The actual boxing workout will consist of two primary forms of training – skill training and conditioning. Children will learn the basic stance, footwork and punches used in boxing. They will also learn how to properly use the boxing equipment and begin conditioning themselves as a boxer would through various boxing drills and bodyweight exercises.
Each noncontact session is a 45 min work out. Participants start off as beginning boxers, progress into fitness boxers and gain the skills necessary to become recreational and even competitive boxers.
