1. Ced’s Boxing Academy
Ced’s Boxing Academy is the first of five Indianapolis-based boxing gyms on this list. Ced’s comes from the mind of Cedric Johnson, a Golden Glove multi-award-winning boxer. He’s an Indiana boxing champion and is ranked in the top four nationally for his weight class. Classes run Monday-Thursday and on Saturday, and different membership options are available.
Whether you’re trying to get into the competitive circuit, burn fat and build muscle, or just learn some self-defense basics, Ced’s is an excellent place to begin. There are few boxing gyms with such an incredibly well-renowned coach and owner – so take advantage and swing by Ced’s Boxing Academy today!

2. Triumph Boxing & Martial Arts
Triumph Boxing and Martial Arts are your one-stop shop for all things martial arts. They’re another Indianapolis-centered boxing gym, though they take a different approach than Ced’s. They offer instruction in boxing, yes, but they also offer courses in a swathe of other martial arts from around the world. Triumph is open with varying hours based on their courses, which can be found here.
Whether you want to learn Karate, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, or good ol’ fashioned boxing, they’ve got a course for you. Triumph also offers classes for children, ensuring prospective fighters of all skill (and age) levels are able to learn in a constructive and competitive environment. Ultimately, Triumph is an excellent choice, regardless of your experience with the sport.

7. IronFist Boxing Club
Situated in Kokomo, IronFist Boxing Club is a relatively new entry to the Indiana boxing scene, having opened its doors in 2018. They focus on creating an educational space where adults and children alike can learn the tenets of pugilism without the pressure of competition (unless it’s desired). IronFist Boxing Club is open from 8-7 p.m. on Mondays and from 8-8 p.m. Tuesday-Friday.
The most significant distinguishing feature of IronFist is their instructors – they’re all volunteers and entirely unpaid. This is to achieve their goal of “creating a community with guns down and gloves up” through positive reinforcement and focused mentorship. This creates an excellent learning environment for both adults and children to build confidence and learn responsibility.
