· Location: Catch Steak at 88 9th Avenue in the Meatpacking District
· Required Equipment: Face mask required at all times
· About the Class: “The 10-round, 45-minute fight is evenly divided between two styles of training. Half of the class is spent exploring the skills and drills of boxing, and the other half is spent on the transformative power of resistance. The class will be outdoors, socially distant from your neighbors, and features ‘silent disco’ headphones for the duration of the class.”
· Number of Participants: 14 people maximum
