Frequently Asked Quetsions


Is My Child Old Enough To Attend Boxing Classes?

Junior boxing sessions are available to children over the age of 8.

What Do Classes Involve?

The sessions include a mixture of activities to promote fitness in children; including training, skipping, pad work, and sparring.

Do I Have to Stay With My Child?

Children can be dropped off and collected at the end of the session, however, parents are welcometo stay and watch their children.

Do Children Spar?

We don’t force the children to spar if they don’t want to. We will encourage them and build their confidence. Sparring for children includes light taps to the body and strictly no hits to the head. The aim is for children to learn the dance of the ring.

What Do Children Need To Bring To Boxing Sessions?

Children will need to wear appropriate clothing and footwear for training sessions such as shorts and t shirt and a clean pair of trainers. A bottle of water is essential. Boxing gloves and hand wraps are needed once the children have attended 4 sessions. Children attending the Junior Class (for ages 10 plus) will also need a gum shield.

How Much Are Classes?

£3 per session or £25 per month
