The Crazy 88 Difference

Learn “The Sweet Science” with a Time-Tested Curriculum

Get Started on the Right Foot

At Crazy 88 Mixed Martial Arts, we believe in providing our students with a solid foundation of basic techniques and fundamentals. Boxing is a highly technical striking discipline,  known as  “The Sweet Science,” so it is critical for students to get started on the right foot.

In our Boxing Fundamentals classes, students will learn all the basics of the Sweet Science: how to throw effective punches, basic combinations, proper boxing stance, and basic footwork. The emphasis of these Baltimore boxing classes is to gain knowledge of and develop skills in boxing.

Not Just “Modified Aerobics”

The nature of boxing requires a student to have the proper reactions drilled into their muscle memory. You can’t be too slow or do things incorrectly when you have real punches being thrown at you. This doesn’t happen if you’re learning “cardio aerobics boxing” that is solely focused on fitness.

At Crazy 88 Mixed Martial Arts, the emphasis is on both proper technique AND fitness. You’ll sleep easier knowing that what you’re learning will work if you’re ever forced to fight. And of course, you get the bonus of training in a clean, professional environment with expert coaches.

Train to Win

Boxing for Competition and Mixed Martial Arts

At the highest levels of the sport, boxing is a harmonious blend of violent speed, explosive power, and shocking endurance. The ability to properly throw punches, move around your opponent, and defend are indispensable – whether you are competing in pure boxing, Muay Thai Kickboxing, or Mixed Martial Arts.

Unlike most boxing gyms in MD, Crazy 88 has a structured progression so you will be able to not only train but compete (if you want) at your respective skill level. You’ll start by participating in hard sparring, then move onto Smoker Fights. Once you become comfortable, you’ll start competing in amateur bouts and eventually become a Professional.

If winning is important to you, its important that you not only receive the proper training but that you receive the proper mentoring and guidance. These are areas in which the Crazy 88 martial arts coaches specialize. If you need to improve your boxing for MMA fights or Muay Thai fights, you will be in the perfect environment. Our staff has had over a decade of preparing students for different styles of competition and at all different levels. You’re not going to be learning techniques that only work in one particular area but might get you hurt in another.

“I’ve gotten more visibly in shape. I’ve lost some weight. I’ve toned up a lot more and I’ve also gained the self confidence that you can only gain here because the coaches push you. ”
