Boxing is a hand-striking art which places a strong emphasis on footwork for ideal position and angle. Boxing makes up a key piece of a self-defense skill set. With techniques suited to every body type it makes a very adaptable martial art.
Our boxing curriculum draws from training with Professor Leonard Trigg who has coached many successful professional and Olympic athletes. Our Portland boxing classes are high paced, energetic and fun. Drills can be worked at a variety of intensity levels. Plus, at NWFA we pair you with training partners who have similar goals.

NWFA provides specialized and professional boxing training. The experience will be more refined than what is available at any local boxing. Using their years of experience, our expert instructors will help you grow as a boxer in the following ways:
Apart from all the skill sets described above, learning boxing at Portland’s NWFA helps you work on improving your fitness and upper body strength like no other martial art form. A lot of people find cardiovascular exercises to be monotonous. Running or using a StairMaster can get boring and inconsistent. Boxing provides great cardio exercise while also working out the entire body. The right kind of boxing training will strengthen your core muscles, arms and legs while getting your heart pumping at the same time.
And of course, the benefit of knowing an art form for self-defense is undeniable.
The instructors at NWFA use basic boxing combinations and techniques to put together numerous different workout routines so it never, ever gets monotonous. You will refine your skills and increase your body’s stamina and strength — all while enjoying the experience.
You will work with different training partners during the course of the session. This helps to take away focus from the exact combination of set moves to naturally respond to your partner’s moves. This becomes extremely essential in real-world circumstances where your opponent isn’t expected to follow a set pattern or routine. This will help you naturally synchronize your actions and reactions with those of your partner.
