Hey I moved to Arkansas several months ago and havent boxed since. I was sure I could find a place around here, but no... there isnt a single boxing gym I could find. I started feeling with drawls after a week of no contact sparring, I just got my second blue belt at a local Karate place. I have been sparring in kempo style karate since 1st blue belt, but its not the same and I miss the boxing.

Sure my sensi keeps telling me a student of karate with almost always beat a student of boxing because they have more tools (kicks of all kinds, im assuming neways) which I think is bullshit. This monster of a guy at least 6'6'' 270lbs brown belt which happens to be my sparring partner, when hes off balance or taken out of his comfort zone by me pushing him or by getting up close on him where he is forced to throw punches and not kicks hes all but helpless, ive never lost a session with him.

So... Im looking for a Boxing place near Arkansas if anyone knows of a place or can find me one I would be very appreciative.

Not sure exactly where Fayetteville is in relation to these, but the following are all Arkansas gyms. If none of these work for you, try contacting your local police dept or local recreational dept and find out if there is a PAL (police athletic league) center near you. They usually have very good boxing programs.
