Boxing classes?

So I checked out a new gym near my house, and love it. Much bigger than what I'm going to currently, has WAAAAY more equipment, has usually 2-3 trainers in there at any given point, 24/7 hours, free tanning (), and is only $10 more per month.

They also have classes, most require an extra fee. I've always had an interest in boxing/MMA type stuff. I'm not sure if I'm really looking to compete in it, or if I'm just attracted to the training part of it. My question is, have any of you ever attended a boxing/mma style class? Are they usually pretty beginner friendly? If so, will I get bored with the basics?

I'm thinking of maybe doing this in the springtime, to help a bit with cutting down/cardio before summer, and to change up my routine a bit.

In for this. Always had an interest in boxing, but I use my brain for a living so I decided against getting punched in the head weekly. Just didn't seem like a good idea, and I have a history of concussions from hockey

I boxed from 7th to 10th grade. My uncle got me into it when I was getting into a ton of fights in Elementary school. After 10th, I've been in two, totally unwarranted. Just two idiots that felt like getting their ass kicked I guess. Though at the age I was at, I don't think it did much for me fitness wise. I was in shape from soccer, but still chubby. It is a really good exercise though.

The "conditioning" for boxing is great for cardio/endurance.

That's a big part of what I'm looking for. Seems like a better alternative to simply running or even doing sprints. Wouldn't hurt to learn some "fighting techniques" as well I suppose.
