About us.

Kid Gloves Boxing is a foundation dedicated to educating students in the art of self-defense as well as achieving physical excellence through proper nutrition and fitness. Our students receive positive reinforcement which helps strengthen both their physical and scholastic achievements.  

Kid Gloves Boxing originated in Van Nuys, CA and was founded by Frank Goodman. Frank taught the importance of a healthy mind and body to ensure physical excellence.Through Frank’s philosophy, many students learned the fundamentals of boxing and that with dedication, self-discipline and hard work, they are able to achieve physical and scholastic excellence. In the late 90’s Mr Robert Ortiz of Simi Valley became the owner of Kid Gloves Boxing and continued the legacy!

“It is an honor that Frank left me the legacy of Kid Gloves as well as trusting me to carry on his wonderful philosophy and deep desire to inspire and guide our youth to a better future.”

“My highest priority is to continue to provide our community a health and fitness program through boxing, grappling, aerobic boxing, muay thai kickboxing, self-defense classes, and personal training for men, women, and children.”
