We have a boxing offer for everyone, from people who boxed previously to those just looking to stay fit.
Athletic Union Club
The club offers weekly sessions which are run by former Olympic coach Brian Hinkley. Brian is a level 4 registered Head Coach so you will be taught sparring as well as tactical and fitness exercises.
There is no requirement to progress through to competition if you do not wish to do so. However, should you wish to compete, Brian and our competitions officer will provide matchmaking with an appropriate position and corner for you on the night. We compete in the University Box Cup, East Midlands Box Cup, Plus regular competitions throughout the year. To be allowed to compete you will need to be registered and undertake a medical.
Our classes create an opportunity for everyone to take part in boxing-inspired fitness sessions to provide students with the fitness, health and stress busting benefits that come with training like a boxer. The sessions are open to all ability levels and beginners are welcome.
We train in a fully equipped martial arts centre with padded floor, punch bags, focus pads, kick shields, skipping ropes and protective equipment.
We also offer weekly My Lifestyle classes for anyone who wants to try boxing but aren't interested in the contact form of the sport or in boxing competitively.
