Shadowboxing focuses on the development of basic boxing technique. Participants will learn the proper punch technique for straight/crooked punches, footwork and stance. Class requires no equipment and there is no impact/contact. Shadowboxing is a full body workout that focuses on breath and improves coordination while providing a fun mental challenge. Each week this 45 minute class will progress with additional punch combinations, footwork, and defensive moves, in addition to a little core work. Individual style and movement will be encouraged increasingly throughout the 4 week class block. Drop-ins are welcome. No experience necessary. Have fun learning proper boxing technique from a former competitive boxer!

Pre-Register Anytime

If you Drop-In to the first class of a session, you can register for the remainder of the session prior to the 2nd class, by calling Dan (CCCA) at (617) 642-1444, and you'll pay the remainder of the Pre-Registration rate (Example: $32 - $13 = $19).

Personal Benefits & Accounts

  • Boxing helps me stay balanced.
  • It allows me to embrace my masculine energy. And I feel most balanced and powerful when I am in touch with my masculine and feminine energy.
  • Even just the rhythm of breathing paired with the full body movement of delivering punches can bring me to a meditative state of destruction. The irony of the sport is real. There is an art and delicacy to the fierceness of boxing.
  • And we all have things in our life that we need to destroy. So we gotta participate in activities that help build confidence and power so that we can destroy what's necessary, and continue to rebuild.
  • Learning proper boxing technique helps to build balance, confidence, and power.
