Float like that one thing; sting like another thing: A conversation with Boxing Gym director Frederick Wiseman

Chris Klimek

I teach a boxing class on Wednesday evenings. It's at a general-interest gym, not a boxing gym, so we're not equipped or insured for sparring, and we don't have a speed bag or a double-ended bag, though I'm working on that. We drill with heavy bags and focus mitts with lots of calisthenics stirred in, and people looking for an intense and unique workout really seem to like it. Most folks who try the class once come back.

Anyway, I interviewed Frederick Wiseman, director of the new documentary Boxing Gym and more than three dozen others, for the Washington City Paper. You can read that here.
