Who we are


Started by Joe Hand Promotions in 1983, the Joe Hand Boxing Gym has been a community landmark for over 25 years. Joe Hand, Sr., a retired Philadelphia police officer, saw the gym a safe place for Philly's children and young adults to come and hone their skills in boxing or spend time learning computer skills for their futures.

Welcome to the gym


A world of opportunity is right here, as kids are mentored by educators and athletes, guiding them down what can be a difficult path. The Joe Hand Boxing Gym offers regulation boxing arenas, brand new equipment, and a modern computer center where children from the community can participate in the education process, whether or not they're interested in learning how to box.
