    i'm always wondering, how much money are they bringing in, some of the smaller schools that are open mostly at night, do the instructors work day time jobs? How much money is in this business

    Not much, like most boxing gyms, I think they rarely make money. The owner of the school that I go to sells insurance during the day to pay the bills, but he loves the sport so he'll do just about anything to keep the school open, plus we make more money from our promotions, managing, and merchandising than the actual school tuitions.

    my instructor owns an academy where he charges people 90 bucks a month, and has maybe 20-30 students. He also comes down to my college twice a week and charges people 50 $ a semester, around 15-20 ppl.
