The Boxing Class suits people who may actually like to fight in the ring
Our Monday Boxing Class focuses more on actual ring-craft, timing, distance, footwork, tactics and strategy.
For the more committed boxers who may look to actually fight in the ring, this class is a must as it is great for fitness.
In this mixed aged class we start with simple principles of stances, defending & punching techniques.
We look to develop good posture and positive training habits.
We continue on with building and maintaining in a disciplined environment.
Some elements for participants in this class include:
- Fitness, endurance and strength conditioning
- Individual & partnered training
- Cardio fitness
- Boxing pad work
- Heavy boxing bag work
- Footwork distancing and timing drills
- Timed round circuit style training
There is no grading or ranking system associated with this class. Naturally an adult will comprehend things a little more precisely than younger children, and be able to apply more strength and power, but at this stage we really want to concentrate on technically ‘clean’ technique over strength, speed or power.
The class starts at 4pm and generally runs for around 60 Minutes. The more experienced boxers will then spar (light contact boxing) in a safe environment.
There are no heroes or big egos so you can learn and develop your technique whilst feeling safe and not concerned about injury.
We find many of the club’s Karateka doing this class as well as it really compliments their other Karate classes.
