This is like the third or fourth time they've tried to get it started. Its a great idea but the people running it don't sound like they have any clue what they're doing. Boxing isn't a seasonal sport, you can't just shut down every few months cause you don't like something and expect that its ever going to be successful.

It was initially shut down because of the construction at Strough. Then there were some issues regarding the gym space that the Y was using, and how it could better be utilized by both the Y and the school. I'm not sure how it was resolved, but I'm glad to see the program startiing back up.

Otherwise known as too many chiefs and not enough indians lol. Hopefully they make it work this time, its a great thing to get kids into, but history tells me that they'll drop the ball again.

This is the second post on this board about the re-opening of the Rome Boxing Association. I went for a while the last time it was open, nearly two years ago at the school.

As I stated in the other thread, it was ok, but the atmosphere wasn't great. There was considerable tension between the coaches and there weren't any mirrors to watch yourself. The main thing it had going for it was the ring which I hear isn't going to be assembled for this version of the program.

If you contact the Rome YMCA, they can give you all the information. The program is still run jointly between them and the RCSD if I'm not mistaken.

I train at Dojo One Jiu Jitsu and MMA in Marcy, our instructor Len started a kids class a few months back and its doing very well. We do boxing and kickboxing, but I don't want to mislead you the main focus is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Either way, if your son is interested in fighting you might want to check it out.
My opinion, at that age Jiu Jitsu is a better art to learn then boxing just because in all honesty its more effective for real life(in the early UFC events Jiu Jitsu guys used to twist the strikers up left and right cause the strikers had no idea how to defend it and it was easier to use), plus when you teach kids how to throw punches you have to worry about them actually using them on people lol.. Jiu Jitsu is a little more like wrestling, only more fun, at least in my opinion. Just something you may want to consider, the schools website is http://www.dojo1mma.com , all the info and contact numbers are on there.

It doesn't appear that they are going to have an adult version. I'm glad that they have something for the kids.

I attended the last version several times and didn't notice any school aged kids. Maybe they have different hours? Who are the coaches? I hope these guys get along better than the last crew.

I did see a 18 and over grouo posted on the site, I would double check. I think it was from 7-8:30 at night or something like that.

My advice is to get him in as soon as possible. Jiu Jitsu and TKD are two very seperate and distinct arts, training in both simaeltaneously will only make him a more well rounded fighter and Martial Artist. We have ranked guys in Judo, Karate, and other arts who train there, the styles complement each other very nicely, it would be of no hinderance whatsoever.

The program is still going, but they have zero paying adults and only a few kids. They have two coaches - one that says he's the head coach and another who talks about himself all night.

They don't have a ring. They gym is closed when the school is closed and it isn't open in the summer.
