Known as the godfather of Austin boxing, Richard Lord trains reigning prizefighters right next to first-timers in his old-school yet welcoming boxing gym. A team of amicable boxing trainers helps aspiring pugilists to pare off pounds quickly, float like butterflies, and sting like adult-contemporary singers during sweat-soaked sessions that cover form, rhythm, and timing. Classes range from 90 minutes to two hours in length and are open to men and women of all skill and experience levels. The class schedule offers sessions throughout the week except for Sunday, when the boxing gloves spend time raising their boxing mittens.

A powerhouse presence for more than 30 years, Richard Lord has trained world-champion combatants, including Jesús “El Matador” Chávez and Anissa “The Assassin” Zamarron, as well as organized the first all-female boxing match sanctioned by U.S. Amateur Boxing, Inc.

Richard Lord's Boxing Gym

There aren’t many fighters who can say that they have their own day. Then again, there aren’t many fighters like Richard Lord. Known as the godfather of Austin boxing, he ran the boxing circuit as a professional boxer and fought a number of rounds in the old Austin Coliseum. A powerhouse presence for more than 30 years, Richard Lord has trained world-champion combatants, including Jesús "El Matador" Chávez and Anissa "The Assassin" Zamarron, and organized the first all-female boxing match sanctioned by U.S. Amateur Boxing, Inc. Looking at all of his achievements, it’s no surprise that the Austin boxing community marks its calendar for March 31, Richard Lord Day.

Inside his gym, he trains reigning prizefighters right next to first-timers in his old-school yet welcoming boxing gym. A team of amicable boxing trainers helps aspiring pugilists to pare off pounds quickly, float like butterflies, and sting like adult-contemporary singers during sweat-soaked sessions that cover form, rhythm, and timing.

Really nice owners/teachers, and a relaxing atmosphere (for boxing anyways). Will have to buy wraps when you get there

They are very friendly and are very family oriented. My tip is to just do it. Go for it. The owner himself is really nice.
