Anyone in the seattle area that have any good recommendations for a good boxing gym for a beginner?

i'm not looking to compete. just learn the basics, light sparring and have some fun.

i've looked around and it seems like there's only 1.


thanks!

I'd goto the "Robert Shannon Boxing Club". Someone proud enough to put their full name on the front of their business means more to me than silly gym names. That gym sounds like a tough one, I may be wrong though.

wait, you said you go there, but you said it sounds like a tough one?

or did i misread that?

anyway, thanks for that screenshot, but i did search google and all the PNW amateur sites. i found one in Renton called Azteca boxing club and it's a whole lot cheaper than Cappys.

Robert shannon's club is a little far from me, but i might check that out thanks!

Bumblebee's is in South Seattle. Credit is in Renton right next to Skyway. Azteca is in the heart of Renton. They also have SeaMar in West Seattle.

Bumblebee and Credit are ran by former pros that held some minor belts. The coach at Credit focuses more towards making pro fighters.

yeah i looked into credit and bumblee and it looks like they're geared towards those who want to compete. bumblebee also seems more focused on kids and those who are younger rather than adult beginners.

Havent heard too much about Tenochtitlan. are you part of them?

Havent heard too much about Tenochtitlan. are you part of them?I used to train out of tenochititlan when it was slower and less crowded. It looks like they're more packed these days with three amateurs and one pro training out of there. There were a few older guys who were never planning to compete while I was still there, and the coach was fine with it. He used to only charge $50 a month back in my time.

I heard a rumor that Bumblebee once kicked a kid out of his gym for refusing to compete, but you can try to be upfront about what you're planning.

Credit's dues are around $75 a month. When I visited the gym a long time ago there were definitely people around who looked like they would never intend to fight.

yeah a guy i know checked out credit and they strictly want competitors.

Cappys is the best fit for what i want, but just way too expensive.

stopped by credit's during non business hours and he has a little spot in the back of a judo gym.

btw, thanks for the PM with the links

I'm reppin Bellevue currently actually Newcastle but there is a gym in Redmond,Wa that is the serious truth. A little on the pricey side but its a kick ass cardio workout and you learn all the basic stuff. You have to prove you got the boxing fundamentals down before you can do some sparring but overall its a neat experience I went to a couple of classes to observe but I'm planning to join once I'm working again.

a guy i know goes to RSU. he said it's alot cheaper than Cappys, which i think is pretty expensive.

yea cappys is expensive but imo the best bet for the kind of competition/exercise your looking for

If you aren't looking to compete then Cappy's is your best bet.. you will still have the option if you want, as Cappy frequently brings fighters to shows, but you won't be pressured into it like you would at most other gyms.

Surprised no one has said anything about White Center PAL.. puts on shows 2-3 a year and has had a decent amount of fighters flow through there.. Rob Diezel (best 125lbs fighter in WA for a while.. GG Winner and now pro), David Imoesiri (best 201 fighter in WA for a LONG time.. GG Winner 3 times, fought at nationals twice now and beat Hasim Rahman's kid.. going pro), etc.

You're right, they mainly do teach youth, but that's because they want the gym to remain free.. if you show up and have the drive, perseverance, and don't *****/complain, you will fit in well and given every opportunity available.
