    I'd like to learn the basics of boxing for self defense and just to understand the art in general. I found Gleason's in Brooklyn but it doesn't look like there's any classes there apart from private instruction. Is there any place you'd guys recommend? Park Slope area of Brooklyn to Manhattan..

    Gleason's on Henry. World renowned. Church Street Gym in Manhattan is decent as well. There are plenty of good boxing gyms.

    Anyways, boxing training is primarily private instruction. I don't know any legit/serious gym that has group boxing classes other than introductory classes. It's not like your local Karate or Cardio Kickboxing class...lmao.

    If you are looking for boxing basics, new york sports club on 16th and 8th ave.

    Gleason's is a HARDCORE boxing gym, May / May not be what you are looking for

    Thanks guys, I had no idea how boxing gyms are structured. Any idea on how to find good boxing instructors or should they all be good at the good gyms? I started reading a Jack Dempsey book last night and he goes on and on about how many bad trainers are out there..
