Bettinelli's Community Boxing Academy

Building up young people -- in both body and spirit -- has been the focus of Bettinelli's Community Boxing Academy since it opened in 2004. BCBA, which recently moved from Lindenhurst to West Islip, is a nonprofit, two-month course for youths ages 10 through 17 that teaches them proper boxing stance, six punches (jabs, hooks, uppercuts), and defense strategies by certified USA boxing coaches.
