The Amateur Boxing Society caters for all skill levels, from complete beginners to those with previous experience. Whether you are simply looking to get fit, or want to get involved in sparring, the club is an inclusive and friendly environment which will help you reach your full potential.

Our sessions are attended by both men and women and offer a high intensity workout which is more effective and more exciting than any gym session! The sessions consist of whole body fitness exercises, technical drills, pad work and sparring. The exercises we conduct are great fat burners and help tone the body, thus allowing our members to become fighting fit.

Sparring is optional and contact is always light. Beginners can begin working with just pads in groups of 3, and then move onto body sparring if they wish. Those with more experience can begn by body or even head sparring. All sessions are supervised and led by professional instructors, who have had many years of exeprience. 

Competing

The Amateur Boxing Society regularly competes in the BUCS which are held twice a year and have won medals consistently. The club also takes part in bi-annual Varsity fights against Leeds Metropolitan University which, as a result of the close rivalry between the two universities, is an exciting social! For those who are less experienced, the club regularly holds interspar competitions which gives those who enter a friendly introduction to a real boxing match.

What to bring

Gloves, pads and any other equipment is provided by the club and Tigers Gym (However if you have your own gloves, skipping rope, hand wraps etc. then by all means bring them along!) 

There are only a few items you will need to train:

  • Non-restrictive clothing- you will be moving a lot so wear something loose and comfortable the typical dress code of a boxer is a tshirt/vest and shorts. If you are going to spar I recommend an old t shirt.
  • Trainers- comfortable footwear is a MUST. If you are going to train a lot I recommend investing in a pair of boxing boots as they are far more lightweight and provide ankle support. 
  • Handwraps- optional but highly recommended and cost practically nothing. 
  • Gumshield- we will NOT let you spar without a gumshield. You can pick one up at any chemist or sports shop. If you aren't sparring then don't worry.
  • Good attitude- as important as any of the gear is that you come to training ready to give it your best. There is no judgement based on your fitness or skill level (everyone starts somewhere) but there is no excuse not to train hard.

Sports equipment can be purchased at any good retailer but our club benefits from a partnership with local specialist store "KO-Sports" http://www.ko-sports.co.uk/ 
This is a local business that gives discount to members from 10% and higer depending on the product purchased.

Come along to our socials to get to know the people you train with better. Regular socials will take place and will be advertised after training and on the facebook group; with special socials happening based around fight nights and events.
