What will I be doing during the class?

In a typical class our ABA qualified instructors will take you through stance, punching, movement and defensive techniques to help improve your skill level. You then find a partner and begin developing those techniques further in a slow and controlled manner. Sparring usually comes towards the end of the class, where you will step through the ropes and try out the skills you have developed.

Do I have to do sparring?

No. Sparring is completely optional and usually happens towards the end of the class to accommodate those who just wish to learn the techniques of boxing without getting in the boxing ring.

Will I get hurt?

Very unlikely. If you decide to take part in sparring it is very unlikely you will end up with more than a bloody nose at worst. All sparring is supervised by our ABA qualified coaches with a strict focus on developing skills and learning control. Sparring is only ever practiced at 30-70% speed/power unless building up to competition.

Can I join if I have never boxed before?

Yes. Our classes are designed to accommodate mixed skill levels. Our more experienced boxers often help newer members develop their skills.

What kit do i need?
