Why choose BBKA
Trusted & Well Reviewed
Into our third year of operation BBKA has made a name for itself in the Bethesda community. We Pride ourselves in our ability to take beginners, either kids, teens or mature adults and provide a path for both fitness and boxing and kickboxing skills. Many of the first time students who come in to take their free introduction class, have mention that they were intimidated when they were preparing for their first class. But once they meet our friendly instructor, and get encouraged about what they can accomplish, they quickly become at part of our extended community.
At just 4,000 square feet in size, our gym is divided into three studios. Our back studio comes equipped with 24 150lb heavy punching bags, and one 300lb punching bags. We also offer a speed bag and a dedicated uppercut and hook bag. The gym floors are covered with a high impact rubber matting that absorbs the shock from running and jumping. During the warm months, we make use of our outdoor space -- 'The Yard'. We offer strength training and agility drills, while communing with nature. Storage cubicles and lockers are available for students to store their gym bags & street clothing while attending classes. We also offer two dressing rooms and a shower for member convenience.
Our instructors are professional and trained in boxing, martial arts and various forms of combat skills. We value our members and students. While the workouts are purposely intense, your class instructor will go out of his/her way to ensure that you are getting the gets experience possible, know you by first name and encourage you to take you fitness to the next level.
