Our 14yrs and upwards Amateur Boxing Class is for those who have an interest in learning to Box, Sparring and Competing.
WIMBORNE 14YRS+ AMATEUR CLASSES
Our 14yrs + Amateur Boxing Class is for those that have a keen interest to box and that wish to move on to sparring and possibly competing one day. If your main goal is fitness and Non-Contact Boxing then please check out our Non-Contact Boxing Classes for 14yrs upwards.
These classes are for all levels so you don't need any previous experience before coming, however, it may be worthwhile learning the fundamentals at our Non-Contact Class first.
WHAT WE DO IN THE CLASS
The Class consists of skipping, pad work, bag work and sparring drills for those that are ready. The idea behind these sessions is to get you up to a level where you can spar and then possibly compete if you wanted, they are not focused around fitness but naturally, there will be fitness drills.
These classes are contact classes so please bring a Gumsheild with you.
