I've only watched the kid's class here, but was blown away. Parents, TAKE YOUR KIDS HERE. Plus, the kids are adorable and look like they're really having fun. The instructor gave all the kids careful, equal, patient attention. I thought he corralled their boundless energy really well, and they all seemed to really look up to him. He teaches respect and sportsmanship, as well as self defense skills. The instruction was how to protect yourself, of course, but also about how to get OUT of a sticky situation. Not how to get into fights - the class was not about being a bully AT ALL. The kids were fidgeting with excitement to show off their skillz. I watched one tiny little girl fearlessly confront a boy who was a good head taller and hold her own! I can only imagine what a powerful, awesome woman she will become with valuable confidence from this class. I thought was a good workout for the kids, taught them valuable skills, and developed their minds (don't just fight - strategize how to get OUT of a bad situation!). Life skillz and self esteem builders, those.

LA boxing has a great program and system that makes working out very easy and convenient. I have been going here for about a year and a half and have consistent great workouts time after time.

I have been to so many gyms over the years and the only contact with the staff is the "HARD SELL" bully membership pitch. We first met Chris the GM who greeted us with a genuine smile and asked us if we wanted to hang out and see what's goes on, we watched some classes and every staff member (who are hardcore MMA and Boxing guys and gals) took the time to smile and say hello, everyone of the members we saw treated everyone like old friends and family - even after some of the most intense workouts I have ever seen. No one ever tried to push a membership on us, and it wasn't till I asked that it was even discussed. We have been with the gym for 3 months now, my 8 year old daughter loves SpiritWolf and his kids classes, my 15 year old son gets a lot of personal attention when the guys found out he is getting ready for football season (they work his butt off and he has put on so much muscle) and I am getting so healthy. Ali the owner is just an old fashioned good guy, GM Chris is such a genuine person, SpiritWolf and his wife are just amazing motivators, Ed always has a smile on his face even when he's letting you hit it, Jim will do his best to work you till you puke but make you feel good about it, Jesus will make sure you cant feel your arms or abs but keeps you coming back for more. WE LOVE THIS PLACE!!!

Great boxing club, with friendly people who are very knowledgeable. I came in not knowing anything about boxing, and Tony takes the time to get down to the basics. You don't even need any special equipment to get started, as they have club equipment that you can use. You can even buy your equipment on site and they don't charge any shipping to you! Great People!
