About The Club


Established in 1997 and located in bustling Five Dock, Joe’s Boxing Club is the inner west’s home of Olympic-style competition boxing. One of Sydney’s top amateur boxing gyms, Joe’s Boxing is a membership-only club for amateur boxers that specialises in Olympic style competition boxing classes for all ages.

Whether your goal is to get fit while learning some self-defence, or you have a desire to fight in the ring as an amateur boxer, we have a class and program to suit. We cater for four age group programs <8 , 8-13 , 14-17 years and 18+ and as an all-inclusive boxing club, pride ourselves on having around 20% female membership. Our classes are mixed gender, and everyone here is treated as an equal.

We run a structured training plan called the Black Shirt program which helps students advance through a methodical series of routines, designed to accelerate student’s basic skills and boxing ability. Students are awarded a different coloured t-shirt as they graduate each training block, eventually achieving the coveted Black Shirt after punching their way through the final test.

The gym has extra opportunities for registered competitors to compete in Boxing Australia competitions. A student can start here and potentially go all the way to the Olympics. Adavanced students will have opportunities to attend open sparring days with other clubs and devleopment days run by Boxing Australia in areas of talent development , coaching, judging and refereeing.

Head coach Joe Walker has been an integral part of Sydney’s boxing and martial arts scene for over 35 years and has built an inclusive and community-focused boxing gym to help you reach your fitness or competition goals.

We do not offer free trials , casual classes or self use of the facility (long term students excepted). Studio hire for film or photo shoots is limited as we have a full quota of classes and a student who is here for years is worth so much more to us than a one time only film shoot. (See joesboxing.com.au/studio-hire for details). Private training is limited to daytimes here and I really only think it is worth it for those who cannot attend classes as my ethos is teamwork makes dreamwork.
