Paul Brown Boxfit
For Paul Brown, combat arts have been a way of life more for than 30 years, leading him to become the second-highest ranked fighter in the Canadian Lightweight Division and to train with the likes of Paul Biafore and Phil Carra. He boiled down his boxing knowledge to a simple fitness class to introduce the sport to beginners, which he now teaches at his personal studio, Paul Brown Boxfit. Other disciplines offered include jeet kune do—the martial art and philosophy developed by Bruce Lee—and muay thai, a form of kickboxing that makes use of the elbows and knees as well as fists and feet. They teach the expanded array of classes in the ample room in their new studio, which sits steps away from the Wellesley subway station, close enough to be convenient but far enough away to recapture fleeing punching bags before they board the train.
