Frequently asked questions:

Do I need past boxing experience? No! The club is meant for ALL levels, no prior experience is necessary. For some members WBC is a workout club, for others it is a chance to learn a new sport (and maybe compete).

Will I get hit in the head or get hurt? No! Classes involve no contact with other members. Starting in October, designated sparring sessions will begin. See the FAQ on sparring.

What is Fight Night? Fight Night is the biggest Wharton/Penn Law event of the year! 5-10 Wharton fighters fight against counterparts in the Law School to raise money for the Boys and Girls Club of Philadelphia. This year's Fight Night will be March 2019.

How do I participate in Fight Night? Interested members must attend the Fight Night Fighter information session (likely to be October 2018). From there, members should regularly attend both regular classes and sparring sessions - committment is crucial to be considered as a fighter. Committed members will be matched with members of the Law School based on gender, size, weight, and skill. Fight Night Fighters will be announced in January/February 2019.

Is there sparring? Yes! Starting in October, certain classess will be designated as sparring sessions. During these sessions, members will slowly be introduced to fighting an opponent under controlled conditions and close supervision. Members must have protective equipment (including headgear and mouthguard) and attend a briefing session before they being sparring.
