This is the Morrison Boxing Club web site.

You will find information about our boxing club and events we are sponsoring here. There are more than 15 pages and videos to be found here by clicking on the titles below the opening page banner.

We found a new and expanded location about four blocks from our old location. It is  at 14721 Overstreet Rd. adjacent to US Route 40.

Google Maps has our location marked on it’s map. We are on Overstreet road just before the Rt 100 and Rt 365 split. Turn right just before the Kum&Go. Click on Google Maps to see our location.

The storm/tornado of 5/30/13 destroyed the new building but we have rebuilt entirely. There are some pictures of the damage done by the tornado to the new gym on the tornado pics page.

    what are your hours and do you give a discount to law enforcement

    • We have no policy currently in place to offer discounts to law enforcement. However, we would be willing to discuss the issue with you.
      Update as of 8/1/2015: We now offer active duty military personnel and law enforcement officers a 10 % discount on any membership.

    • Your daughter is classified as a Junior boxer. Our juniors train on Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00 pm until 6:00 pm and on Saturdays from 9:00 until 10:00 am. We would be happy to work with your daughter. Come by and see what we’re doing. If she is interested she can try it out for three days at no cost.

    • You are a senior so your training options are Monday through Thursday 6:00-8:00 and Saturday mornings 9:30-11:00. So “what do you need to do to start”; come by the gym any day, wear suitable training clothes and shoes (NOT running shoes or work boots) fill out our waiver and start you free three day introduction to boxing.

    Can I try it out and see how I like it before I pay or commit to anything.

  8. Marilyn Johnson says:

    My 12 year old grandson is visiting us some this summer and would love to have some lessons. Is there a registration form or do we just show up on Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday to take advantage of the 3 free lessons? What is the physical address of the facility?

    • Hello Mrs. Johnson, Thank you for calling about the three day free introduction to our gym and boxing. Re the registration form. The only paperwork we need is a waiver. Since you have brought this to my attention I will put the waver online here at our site. Thank you for the feedback.
      Coach Nader

    I’m a former Arkansas state football player who’s always wanted to do boxing for good cardio and defense. Just wanted to know if it would be fine if I dropped by and see how I liked it and possibly get a membership.

    • Of course! You are welcome to come by and take advantage of our “Three Days Free” offer. There is no need to schedule your days, just come by and train with us Monday – Thursday beginning at 6:00 pm.

  10. Keith says:

    question: With a membership, and the times slated for adults M-T 6-8 and S 930-11, can you train any days?, or as much or less as you want in those slots? Reason i ask, is I travel and work alot of weird hours, so i am wondering how that will play in my scenario. Thanks

  11. jacob chambers says:

    Hey I’m 16 an would like to get in to boxing for the summer but ithe says 1t an up have to give a 1yr commitment but I will only be here for the summer can we work something else out

  12. Sydney says:

    What all do you need when you show up for the first class? Do you need to bring your own gear?

    • If you have your own equipment bring it. If not you my use our gear. If you have no boxing experience it is best to use our equipment, do not go to a sports store and buy anything! The large majority of gear sold in chain sports shops is not adequate for training in a “real” gym. Buy your own gear after you see what is needed.

    LOOKS LIKE A GREAT PLACE. FROM KEM.

  14. Angela morrison says:

    Do you guys travel across the USA boxing
    For 12-13 year olds?

    • If we have a true contender in the Prep divisions we would travel. However travel costs in the prep divisions is not supported by USAB or the local association so the cost of travel and hotel falls entirely on the athlete. Because I am part of the administration at most national events I am able to attend (and coach) at no cost. That still leaves a substantial burden on athletes/parents.

  15. Jonathan says:

    Hey my name is Jon I’ll be 18 soon and id love to learn to box and maybe get to compete. I was wondering if there are any one on one personal classes that u have or trainers for hire for just one person

    • Hi Jon,
      Personal training can be arranged but that option is NOT the most productive training scenario. We have trainers/coaches that work with all of our boxers at every session. You would not really get more benefit from training by yourself. In fact you NEED other athletes to help you develop your skills not just coaches. Each athlete is instructed at the level they have achieved. Our gym is a traditional boxing gym. Training is not organized as a “class” such as you find in yoga, fitness or dancersize classes. You are not limited to practicing skills you have already mastered or trying to perform skills/techniques that you are not ready for as you would be in a “class”. You will move along the path from beginner to competitor at the pace you are able to handle using the “Goldilocks” principle. (not to hard, not too soft, etc).
      Please come by the gym and take a look at what we do any day Mon-Thurs beginning at 6:00 PM. Then actually give it a try. We offer three days of training at no cost so you can see how everything works.

    I have a fight in London, England in November. It’s for charity and sponsored by SOFREP. I’m 46 yrs old and am a former professional fighter. I’m looking to see about getting ready for the fight. Please, provide what it would cost to get me ready for November.

    • What are your details, i.e. weight, height, experience … number of bouts, Time of day you are available to train, when in Nov you will box etc. Your cost will depend on the number of days, intensity/length of training, number of sparring partners needed etc.

  17. Mackenzie Peirce says:

    I’m wanting to sign my 7 year old son up for boxing classes. What are the days and time of week he could attend? And is it still $40 a month?

    • USA Boxing membership begins at age 8. USAB provides our liability insurance so we are bound by USAB’s limitations. If your son begins to train at age 7 he can not engage in any type of contact training; no blocking drills,no sparing etc. He can still hit the bags, shadow box, work the speed and double end bags but in order to learn to box an athlete must actually box so his progress will be limited. Yes… Junior dues are still $40/month.

  18. Jovon says:

    Do you guys have any professional fighters? Or fighters who went professional? Also I want to compete never boxed, I’m 22 I will be 23 November 2nd. Am I too old to even try and go pro. And how long does it take to go pro or do it all depend on me? Of course I would have to
    Do amateur fights first. Sorry I got so much question, but do I have to go to the Olympic to even go pro?

    • Yes, we have trained boxers to the pro world championship level and we have a few pros in the gym.
      However that means little to you because boxing is an individual sport. The level you achieve is entirely up to you.
      It is impossible to say if you can be a successful pro regardless of how old you are or when you started training.
      It is impossible to say how long it will take you to reach (if ever) elite status (pro, Olympics, amateur worlds, etc.)
      No, you do not need to be a Olympian to turn pro.
      Yes you should compete at the amateur level…. if you can’t beat the amateurs you certainly can’t beat the pros.
      You should come to the gym and try it out for three days. No cost or commitment.
