Not at all. A lot of our members are absolute beginners who have never put on gloves and come for the fitness aspect only. Boxing is the ultimate get fit sport that exercises your whole body.
Please visit our registration page

As with any other sports or gyms you visit; comfortable, loose fitted and breathable clothing is advised. Trainers are fine but if you come regularly, you may want to invest in some boxing shoes/boots.

We’d recommend a spare T-Shirt or hoodie as you will get sweaty! Feel free to bring a face towel for wiping in between rounds.

If it’s your first session, you just need to bring yourself and a drink! We will provide you with gloves and other items for the class. If you come regularly, we suggest you buy hand wraps, gloves and a skipping rope. If you want to spar, you need a mouthguard and a head guard. We do sell all these items so please ask if you want to purchase anything.

Online booking will soon be available. In the meantime, please call us on 07504 211 725  or  01923 549 089

Technical sparring can begin at an early age if the parent and child are comfortable and if the instructor thinks the student is ready. Technical sparring is done at a slow pace with both sparring partners being told what to throw and what to block so they know in advance how to act.

You will only spar when you feel comfortable and if the instructor believes you are ready. Technical sparring is the first step on the way to sparring. If this is your aim, we will slowly build the steps up until you are comfortable, confident and ready.
