Barry's Boxing Center is a non-profit organization, developed to encourage, not
discourage, young men and women in their pursuit of excellence in the
sport of boxing both in and out of the ring.
In affiliation and coordination with USA Boxing, we persist and insist
on promoting safety in boxing.
Our motto is "We teach the science, not the violence!" Although a
catchy cliché, we believe it to be the true essence of quality boxing.
Our sport is not tabbed the "Manly art of self defense" and the "sweet
science" because of a barbaric or destructive nature, but rather because
it is recognized as a solution to to the violence of fighting.
True understanding of boxing is to appreciate it for the skill level of
one's ability to hit and not be hit, combined in a time frame (rounds)
which test for endurance and conditioning, rewarding the victor and
satisfying the competitive spirit with in us all.
You may only gain and maintain the necessary physical conditioning
needed in boxing through hard work, dedication, motivation and
inspiration. You may only fine tune these admirable qualities
through consistency and persistency. You may only acquire these
attributes through a disciplined lifestyle.
