    ^ Yeah I'm also looking for a good boxing gym in Orange County. I started going to LA boxing but they're more focused on getting a workout then teaching how to box.

    I'd like to know as well. Some ghetto and cheap ones I'd prefer because they seem more legit compared to LA Boxing.

    I've been looking too but not too sure about some of these places. The only reputable place I know of is Team Oyama in Irvine but I think they're more focused on Muay Thai and BJJ. I'm going to drop by there this week just to check them out.

    Team Oyama is mainly a MT and BJJ gym. They do have a boxing program but it's not the main focus. There's always La Habra but that's just a gym where the pros and ammys spar.

    Yea La Habra is too for me. I'm in south OC and after work there would be too much traffic.

    Has anyone heard of Reign Training Center

    I have been to Reign - although I haven't worked with their instructors or know if they have a non-mma or muay thai related boxing program. Reign is owned by Mark Munos, i.e. the Filipino Wrecking Machine and is genuinely a nice guy. There is a pretty nice conditioning/weights facility next door and I think they offer package deals.

    I went there to check out the facilities and to watch Nonito Donaire do a press workout (note: Donaire's home gym is Undisputed Gym in San Carlos).

    I've trained people at a couple of gyms in OC and I'm actually working on a google map (i.e. a "my map") with all the OC Boxing gyms on it. I'll try and remember to post it here once it's a bit more complete - but hit me up if you want a copy of it in its current state.

    I believe Reign is more of a MMA gym.

    thanks for your efforts in putting this together. do you know of any gyms/trainers in SoCal who particularly excel in training southpaws? I train in Muay Thai but my hands could use more work.

    You should check out OC Boxing Academy in Tustin. It's a classic boxing gym. I've trained at a lot of other gyms, and this one's pretty legit. Been going there about six months. No complaints, the coaches really know their stuff.
