Boxing is a fantastic sport to improve fitness, agility discipline and confidence. Contrary to popular belief, it is a very safe sport. This will be a very good learning experience for both novices and experienced individuals.
Injuries are quite uncommon, so there's no need for you to worry! We provide an enjoyable, hard working environment where people work alongside each other to better themselves physically and mentally. We take anyone who is interested regardless of age, previous experience or GENDER! We will cater if you are ready to compete for the university this year or if you are just learning to box and improve your fitness. This year we are going to expand on what we have built the previous years with more members, more structured sessions and socials.
So come along to one of the sessions and see if it interests you!
Train Hard, Fight Easy.
The first few sessions will be dedicated on the introduction of new members to boxing.
One can attend an introductory session for free at any point throughout the year.
If you are looking to compete for the club, then please speak to any committee member and we will look into developing an action plan for competing.
Venue: West Ham Boxing Club, 2 London Road, E13 0DN
Equipment: No equipment needed at the start. As members progress it is recommended that they purchase own hand wraps. The required equipment is provided by West Ham Boxing Club. HOWEVER, if the participant wishes to engage in contact (sparring) as part of the training, it is absolutely essential for safety reasons that they purchase their own mouth guard and whatever else they deem appropriate in order to protect their person.
