American Boxing was founded and is operated by Coach/ Kru Dave Nielsen, a lifelong Holistic Health Practitioner, Fitness Professional, Self Defense Instructor, Combat Sports Expert and Avid Surfer. Read his bio!
American Boxing Muay Thai and Boxing Classes have a heavy focus on technique, philosophy, intense cardiovascular conditioning and functional strength.
“First time” beginners are common in our 101 classes along with more advanced students. Advanced students mentor the beginners to help them improve to eventually become ideal training partners! American Boxing students are a family of people that find learning fun, enjoy technically improving and use their superior fitness from training Boxing and Muay Thai to lead healthier and more active lifestyles.
Classes are held 7 days per week and have 10 or fewer students to ensure the best possible learning environment. Expect to be challenged both mentally and physically most days with a great sense of camaraderie, fun and accomplishment. Check out our 101 Beginner class schedule here and sign up now.
Former high school athletes tend to love training at American Boxing. The more positive and coachable your attitude, the more successful you will be in American Boxing classes. If you are overly sensitive to direct communication that is common in athletics or adult humor (in adult classes), this may not be the gym for you. Technique, sweat, sarcasm and a family vibe are daily constants at American Boxing.
Coach Dave teaches World class technique from Muay Thai, Cuban style Boxing, Dutch style Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Submission Wrestling using his unique approach of analogies and micro-biomechanics (the smallest often untaught, critical movements). 1st Time Beginners and Seasoned Pros are both blown away with how fast they pick up the most challenging of techniques.
Kids Classes are Coach Dave’s favorite to teach. Kids are held accountable, act respectful and are very kind. We address bullying and kids are taught the mental tools needed to handle any situation. Our kids are kind and sweet, but as a last resort, our kids can physically defend themselves, better than any kids around, we guarantee! Children learn, play and have their fun with Coach, who acts more like a fun uncle that keeps them inline like a Coach. THERE IS NO DIRECT PUNCHING TO THE HEAD IN KIDS CLASSES!
American Boxing Muay Thai and Fitness directly serves the La Jolla, Pacific Beach, Clairemont and surrounding areas but is often home to students and fighters from all over San Diego county, Europe, Australia and Asia.
