In response to the Anon Review, yes the group classes tend to be large, and that does limit the 1:1 time you might receive from an instructor. But that is the nature of a group class--which is primarily an exercise class. If a student is looking for more personalized 1:1 attention, there are private lessons offered and those can be tailored to what you are looking for.
And yes, the classes may seem to become routine. But that's how most of the fighting arts are taught: repetition, repetition, repetition. There's really so many punching combinations you can throw in boxing. The trick is throwing that jab, or that straight right, or that hook with perfection--or as close as you can get to perfection.
Really, the best way you can learn after building up your reflexes and endurance, and picking up technique from watching the other more experienced boxers--and instruction from the trainers--is to spar. And sparring is available to students whom the instructors feel are ready. And they ease you into it--they work with you to help you learn more.
The trainers here, Carlos, Sr.; Carlos, David and others, are a library of boxing experience and knowledge. I try to soak up as much as I can every time I go!
