The program follows a 10-week curriculum consisting of rounds 1-10 where the skill changes every week to include jabs and uppercuts and defensive techniques.

   Free boxing gloves available upon enrollment and a free trial is available with mention of this ad. Classes are currently being held at Namaste Yoga Spa in Plainview shopping center off South Oyster Bay Road. 516-815-8115.
