Core Combat Sports has long been the region’s leader in Boxing, with legendary trainer, Abdul Jarvis, a world-champion boxer and kick boxer who has trained local Golden Gloves winners, propelling fighters to the highest levels of both amateur and professional competition. One particular prodigy is Core’s own Terri Blair, who holds no less than three world championship belts.

Core’s Boxers frequently compete (and win) various tournaments including the prestigious Golden and Silver Gloves competitions, and several local MMA fighters know the only place to get elite Boxing training is at Core Combat Sports. The trophies, titles and medals Core Boxers have amassed are too numerous to count, but are a testament to the level of skill and instruction a student receives in Core’s Boxing programs.

Just Beginning Boxing?

A Core Boxing student will need a pair of hand-wraps and 16 oz gloves to start, although loaner gear is available for first time students who want to try the class. In fact, it is recommended you come to class and get suggestions from the instructors on what brands are sturdier and more durable, and Core even sells high quality gear in the pro shop. A groin cup for male students, and a mouthguard are always advised if the student wishes to work in partner drills.
