Question
How do I become a certified boxing instructor?

Answer
In order to be a certified amateur boxing trainer/coach, you will need to have membership (fee paid yearly, good January to December of the year you join) and attend a 6-8 hour coach's certification clinic.  I don't have information for any other kind of training.  If you're interested in becoming an amateur boxing coach, you can email me at mel@amateurboxing.com and let me know the city and state you live in so I can send you a contact.
