Youth Boxing Classes at the Warzone are intended for 8 to 12 year old boys and girls. This is a beginners and novice level group that offers structured classes in boxing for self-defense and fitness. In this program they will learn the basics of footwork to eventual sparring and every step will be supervised by a professional boxer or an elite amateur. Our intentions are to keep them interested while we give them real training.
Classes are scheduled from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm Monday thru Thursday with Sunday training at multiple parks or tracks. Though Sunday runs are not required we do recommend they participate in order to get them in shape.
We have one of the most successful programs around. We have many young students who are still a part of our gym family today like Anthony “Baby Assassin” Villarreal, The Famous Brothers Carlos & Giovanni Ruffo, and Michael “Lil Warrior” Franco & Daniel “Twitch” Franco who all started here. All of these talented boxers were under 10 years old when they started training at the Warzone.
Anthony is currently ranked among the Top Twenty Flyweights in the World as a Professional. He began his career at the young age of 9 and today at 26, is still part of the Warzone. Brothers Michael “Lil Warrior” Franco & Daniel “Twitch” Franco are both among the top prospects in the professional ranks with records of “19 & 1” and “11 & 0” respectively. They are also both coaches at our club.
The Ruffo Bros, Giovanni & Carlos both started with the Warzone Team when they were 4 & 6 and now at age 9 & 11 have their own Tap-Out Commercials seen nationwide and are recognized as the Future of MMA around the World. We only trained them to use their hands, but that’s what got them their recognition. Great handwork is their signature and they got that at the Warzone.
Our classes teach kids discipline, focus, how to work with others, and the proper techniques. We make it fun for these kids as well as knowing when they have had enough and when we can get more out of them. This why our kids stay with our program and our history is proof of this.
