Boxing moves improve your agility, speed, strength, and endurance. The best part? All you need to get started is you, yourself, and a willingness to give it your all inside and outside of the ring…

Balance & Coordination

Boxing is far more than just a combat sport; it’s a game of mental chess that requires impeccable hand-eye coordination, footwork, agility, and balance.


Stress? Frustration? Anxiety? Boxing releases endorphins that improve mood and relieve stress. Sometimes you just need to let some frustration out in a punching bag! Or the coach!

Burns More Calories

For those looking to shed a few pounds or simply stay in top form, boxing can burn more calories than most other forms of cardio.

My name is Edson Rocha and I am a certified Silver Level USA Boxing Coach with almost three decades of boxing training and I offer 1on1 Boxing Lessons and Small Group Classes for kids, teenagers and adults in Annapolis, MD Area.


I was born and raised in Brazil and moved to Annapolis, MD in 2017 when my American wife transferred to work in Washington DC.

In Brazil I practiced different types of sports since I was a child. At the age of 7 I had my first contact with judo and swimming. In high school, I excelled at basketball and rugby. I also practiced skydiving, trained muay-thai, jiu-jitsu and of course boxing. Having trained at several gyms I was able to see the birth of MMA as a sport up close. At that time this modality was known simply as Vale-Tudo (literally translated from Portuguese as “anything goes”). But boxing has always been a passion for me and my favorite martial art.

I’m a proud Brazilian Army veteran with training in urban and jungle guerrilla warfare.

Besides boxing I love to spending time with my family and having friends over for a churrasco, pao-de-queijo and sometimes caipirinha.

There’s something here for everybody!
