We provide a safe, encouraging atmosphere for people who want to learn the sport of boxing. We focus on proper technique, physical conditioning, and constant technical improvement. Our coaches provide exceptional instruction – whether you want a fun workout or you want to step into the ring to test yourself.
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 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 classes is to gain knowledge of and develop skills in boxing.
The Boxing Fundamentals do not involve hard sparring and are perfect for the complete Novice as well as the individual looking for a great cardiovascular workout. Classes include warm-ups calisthenics, mitt work, heavy bag work, as well as defensive and offensive drills. Students will be exposed to Crazy 88 MMA’s proven and tested striking curriculum and experience a professional and fun training environment. There is a reason that our Boxing classes are some of the most popular on our expansive martial arts class schedule. If you want to learn world class boxing in Baltimore Maryland, then you need not look further than Crazy 88 Mixed Martial Arts.
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. Unfortunately, most boxing classes are simply modified aerobics. A group of well-intentioned student are told to punch bags until their heart rates go up and they are left feeling like they accomplished something. Unfortunately, once these students are forced to actually spar, they are shocked. If the situation occurs in the street or the ring, they can get seriously injured because they haven’t been really learning boxing. They’ve been doing “cardio aerobics boxing” for fitness ONLY.
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.
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.
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.
Everyone here is very level-headed and definitely some of the nicest people I’ve met. It has been completely awesome, it’s been really safe, all the instructors know what they’re doing, and it’s in a controlled environment.Josh T.Student
