Our coaches are USA Boxing members, trained and certified as boxing coaches by USA Boxing and have passed a Sexual Abuse and Molestation background check which is conducted every two years.

Since we are non-profit your dues are considered donations and are fully tax deductible as charitable contributions on both federal and state tax forms.

At Morrison Boxing you will learn that you can do your best even when it’s hard, even when you’re tired and maybe even hurting a little.  It feels good to show courage and heart!

“Boxing helps you overcome fear.  It doesn’t mean that boxing will take away fear completely, but will teach you to live and function well within that fear.”

– Cus D’Amato, Legendary Trainer

“Boxing is a superior workout …  a boxing workout is the perfect combination of cardiovascular and muscle training.  You’ll burn more calories, build more stamina, develop and tone more muscle in a boxing workout than you will with any other training method.  A boxing workout is the best of all worlds…unlike running and biking, which do little for the muscles above the waist, boxing works both the upper and lower body and because it uses many muscle groups, it is less likely to cause overuse injuries.”

-Dr. Joseph Estwanik, Sports Medicine Specialist

We specialize in Olympic-style boxing, training male and female athletes for competition at all levels; locally, nationally and internationally.  In domestic competition, an athlete must be at least eight years old. The Junior Olympic program is for athletes eight to 16; the Youth program is for boxers 17-18; and the open and elite programs are for boxers 19-40 years of age. There is a master’s division at the local level only and it is designed for boxers 41 and older.

Don’t want to compete? We welcome individuals who want to achieve the benefits of training like a boxer without actually engaging in full power contact or entering into competitive events. Take a look at the Non-competitive Boxing page on this site for more details.

If you are interested but unsure if boxing is right for you we offer a “Three Days Free” introduction to boxing and our gym. Come by and give it a try FREE!

We care about our kid’s education. Our young folks must bring in their report cards and if their grades drop they may not compete in shows or tournaments.


The main objective of Olympic-style boxing’s rules and the actions and decisions of the referee and coach is the safety and protection of boxers.

Safety measures are uniformly enforced in our gym. Boxers are required to wear a form-fitted mouthpiece, a foul-proof cup, an optional breast protector for women and a larger training headgear while engaged in any form of contact training or sparing. This equipment is also mandatory for all non-elite amateur boxing competition.

  1. Gym dues are $60.00 per month. Note: We have added a fourth and fifth training day. We’re now open on Wednesdays and Saturdays as well as Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.

  2. Charlotte says:

    Do you work with adult beginners?

  3. G2012 says:

    I’m a 20 year old male and not in the best physical shape.

    Looking for a fun way to learn self-defense while also getting in shape and teaching myself some some discipline.

    Is this the right choice?

    • Boxing is a great way to help a person get in shape, develop balance and agility as well as learn to deal with some types of street aggression. However, learning to use and defend against knee and foot attacks is more suited to disciplines such as kickboxing and other martial arts.

      Morrison Gym is currently in the process of instituting kickboxing and MMA training. We expect to begin offering instruction by the first of the year (1/1/13)

  4. nick harper says:

  5. Josh says:

    according to your weight classes he would be a super heavy. And he is a senior. Please email me for quicker response

  6. Josh says:

    so would you guys have any senior super heavy?

  7. Rayray says:

    I am a female in my mid 20’s, and I would like to start boxing. Do you have many female boxers and do you see many boxers beginning in my age range?

    • Rayray,
      At this time we have no females training with us. But we welcome girls and women. In fact Mr. Nader is a founding member of the Women’s Task Force of USA Boxing and he is particularly interested in recruiting females. (If you followed the USA in the last Olympics you’ll see that our women were the only boxing medalists for USA.
      At twenty you are probably not going to advance rapidly enough to end up boxing in the Olympics before your life intervenes and you retire from competition.
      However, boxing truly is an individual sport and no one can predict how fast you will develop nor what level of competition you will achieve success in.

      If you’d like to speak with Coach Nader give him a call 240-538-1858

  8. Adonis Fulmer says:

    I am 18, and I want to get into boxing, I have been in martial arts, and I’m very athletic but I know lil about boxing! I am looking for a good gym.

  9. Brandie Davis says:

    Hello I have a 15 yr old son that has had a very hard life and he has no one to look up to and is being picked on punched and he doesn’t know the first thing in defending himself I feel that this would be a great opportunity to maybe find himself and give him some hope in life please get back with me thanks brandie davis

    • Boxing is a great sport where anyone can and will learn to be more self confidant as well as gain the ability to defend themselves. In addition to self defense ability your son will learn to recognize just when it is appropriate to use physical defense, its not always the most appropriate action.
      Come by the gym and let him have a look at what is going on. We can also speak with you about what boxing training can do for your son.

  13. Jones says:

    I’m 20 and I want to train to compete I want to try to go pro I’m 6’3 286 do you think it’s possible if I train with you guys that it will happen

    • No coach can guarantee that you or anyone else can achieve the skills needed to become a successful pro. At twenty you are a bit late in beginning to train however your development as a boxer is entirely dependent on your native abilities, dedication to your training regimen and the depth of your desire to succeed.
      The physical conditioning required to excel as a pro is very demanding and few people have the strength of will needed to sustain a boxer’s rigorous training schedule. Can we train you well enough to turn pro? YES! Our coaches have more than 100 years of combined experience. You must be “coach-able” and be willing to put out the effort but it is possible to become a pro boxer if your determination is strong enough.

      • Mr.Impossible says:

        I have fought back in my younger days a time or two at the new daisy theatre in Memphis Th. And really wasn’t properly trained so I stopped and never achieved what I wanted to do. Now that I’m older I would like to dedicate my everything to pursue what I started. I’m like no other,heart of a lion and strong as a ox. Super heavy weight,would like to keep fight at 270 solid. Speed and agility is great for super heavy weight. In the gym now to get myself in shape to come to your gym,I’m straight beast mode! and have no fear in me for no one but God! Would like to come to your gym and just see how it goes and maybe one of your coaches can help me get a chance to fight for a belt. I’m very serious and not planning on stopping until I win a super heavy weight belt.

      • Older??? how old? Where are you training? Of course you can come by and take a look at what we are doing and train with us for up to three days ….free.

  14. Jones says:

    Have y’all even coach some who turned pro

  15. allen stiger says:

    • We are a competitive gym….. our goal is to produce champions…. so yes you are encouraged to train and enter competition at all levels. Our base level single member dues begin at $60/month.

  16. Jones says:

  17. Christian Cummings says:

  19. Scott says:

    I’m 43 and have been training lightly for the last year. I’m looking to get into master’s amateur boxing. Do you guys provide training for older guys like myself? Thanks.

    • Hello,
      I apologize for my delay in responding to your post.
      Yes we would be happy to train you for Master’s competition. We don’t have an upper age limit on our membership.
      However you should be aware that in the Masters category it is often difficult to get a match unless you are willing to travel out of state.
      Give me a call if you are still interested (240) 538-1858 or better yet come by and try us out two or three days free. We may be what you are looking for.
      Coach Nader

  20. EJ says:

    I am a female and I am looking for a good way to workout and get in shape. Do I have to be a member or can I just come and try a new workout?

    • You can come in and try us out 2 or 3 times free but if you want to continue to train you will have to be a member.
      Take a look at the new page “Fitness Boxing” here on our web site.

  22. Joe Welch says:

    I have a young man that has been boxing a while . He is very trainable . He is a pro fighter with a 3-2 record . Has basically little training as far as the fundamentals of boxing . I’m looking for a gym that can give him the skills and technics that a boxer needs . With the right training the kid will be really good . I don’t know if you train pro fighters . Such as a boxing camp to get them ready for the fighter they will be facing . I’m going to start sponsoring the kid . So money is not an issue . But if your not interested , could you point me in the right direction as far as finding him trainer / gym . The kids name is Dakota Dawson . He has fought on ESPN twice . He doesn’t even get to spare . Focus mitts the basics . I work in the gas and oil industry and I’m not home enough to train him or I would do it myself .

    • Hello Mr. Welch,
      We specialize in grounding our boxers firmly in the fundamentals i.e. good stance & balance, the bio-mechanics necessary to achieve concurrent power and speed, recognition that offense and defense are two sides of the same coin and must be implemented simultaneously, multiple blocking techniques and counter striking scenarios and the tactics & strategy needed to compete against varying styles of opponent.
      However at this time we do not have any pros training with us. That creates some difficulty in giving your young man the sparring he needs to incorporate the basics into his repertory.
      What is his weight class? How many amateur bouts has he had? Where does he live?….. What are his details?

      Send me email and we can discuss the options if you wish.

  23. DeUndre Davis says:

    I am 16 and I want to start Boxing i live in little Rock and i am looking for somewhere to train, I was hoping you could help

  24. Roger Wertenberger says:

    I’ve been looking to get back in shape and I have been interested in boxing for some time. I usually do not get off work until 5:30 and I live about 45 minutes away. If you are a member do you need to be present at 6:00 or do you allow members to straggle in?

  25. Hi Kyndricke, You can come by on any Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs or Sat to check us out. Wear some workout clothes and you can train if you wish. It’s free to train for three days.

  26. jahein says:

    • Hi Jahein, we missed you on Monday MLK’s holiday, we were open. We will be open as usual the remainder of the week. Feel free to come in and train with us and see what its like. No, you don’t need to have your own gear to start, in fact I encourage you NOT to buy any boxing equipment until you have used ours and seen what is needed.

  28. Bernadette Simpson says:

    Hello my son is interested in taking boxing classes. He is 16. How can I register him for classes?

    • You and your son should come by the gym and look us over. If you are interested we recommend that he train with us for three (3) days free (no cost or commitment). Following the intro classes you can elect to join our club.

  29. Starr Barron says:
