IRONBOUND BOXING ACADEMY

Ironbound Boxing Academy (IBA) operates in partnership with the City of Newark. The City of Newark has provided us with a space within the Ironbound recreation center and IBA independently operates our boxing and educational programs.

MORE THAN BOXING

IRONBOUND BOXING is more than boxing.  We believe in the “power of commonalities” which states that the same attributes that it takes to become a successful boxer are the same attributes it takes to be successful in any endeavor.

The difference between our Academy and a gym

The Ironbound Boxing Academy is an Academy not a gym. In a traditional gym people are free to come and go as they wish without any responsibility to show up. The academy is open cost free to those who make a commitment to our program. We commit to being there and so should anyone that wants to be involved. For example, Tommy and Michael, two of our first members, take the bus 45 minutes each way to get to the Academy.  That is a commitment in our eyes. We are a family and family members have a responsibility to others.  

An important part of the “more than boxing” is teaching responsibility.  Showing up and/or letting someone know you can’t show up is an expected norm of being considerate to others.  This will be practiced at our Academy.
