About Boxing Sparring Classes
Sparring is a great way to put to practice all techniques learnt in class against an opponent, this is a class with direct contact to really allow you to practise the skills you have learnt in your boxing training. However, our trainers will always ensure that you practise safely and that exercising control is always a top priority.
What it takes
When to Start Boxing Sparring
If you are starting out as a new boxer, then you must pick up the skills required to train safely before you being sparring, to get started you should take a look at our Boxing class – this will allow you to pick up the fundamentals.
To begin sparring we require that you have been practicing boxing for a while before joining the class and it will be up to the trainers discretion to decide when you are ready to begin.
What Will I Need to Begin?
Physical fitness is of the utmost importance before you begin sparring, this can be achieved as part of our boxing class or you can speed up the process by attending our Conditioning sessions.
The proper equipment is also necessary, so make sure you have 16oz boxing gloves, mouth guard and head gear. If you do not have these items, then please chat to one of the gym staff about purchasing them.
