The Jab-To-Jab boxing Gym guide continue and this time we were in your Majesty’s lands, United Kingdom, to visit the iconic Rathbone Boxing Club.
We spoke to the Founder herself, Manya Klempner, that opened the door of this well ranked boxing gym in London.
“Rathbone’s elite coaches, led by Head Coach Greg White, teach under the watchful eye of Adam Booth, guided by his methodology and quality of training. The gym is unique in its polished finish, paired with the ‘spit-and-sawdust’ feel of an old-school club. We are the real deal yet conveniently situated in Central London and professionally managed. We celebrate the unique culture inherent to the traditional boxing gym, but we are welcoming, unintimidating… and CLEAN.
Though we offer intro level classes to cater for newbies and those who primarily box for fitness, our main focus is skill development, a structure that is deeply lacking among the various “boxercise studios” popping up all around. Boxing is a sport, after all, not just a workout. We want to honor the sport and the multitude of mental and physical benefits it brings to those who practice it, properly”.
“We also host Rathbone Amateur Boxing Club onsite, which is our way of giving back to the community and building a competitive squad”.
“We’ve been getting rave reviews. Take a peek at the Evening Standard’s write up from our launch and shortly thereafter one about me from Forbes that addresses the vision of the club, among other things…”
“Tatler even awarded us Best Newcomer Gym. You can also get a sense of our vibe on our Instagram feed: @rathboneboxing“, concludes Manya Klempner
