I wanted to learn the art of self defence and add variety to my daily workouts. The team at Ring Boxing Club offered me that in abundance! Joining a boxing club always seemed daunting to me until I met the family at The Ring. It’s so multi-cultural, a great mix of Men and Women and just a super friendly environment to learn in. The coaches and the drill’s themselves pushed me very hard and I very quickly became a lot sharper and fitter. The coaches are hilarious, fun but extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the world of boxing. I was on track to become the first British Indian WBC Super Middleweight Champion, but I had to leave London unfortunately, haha. I will miss you guys and thanks for everything.
All sparring classes are run by Coaches accredited by the London White Collar Boxing League. Sparring classes are run in a highly respectful environment, with focus put on defence and control. All participants are expected to arrive no more than 10 minutes before the start of the class and MUST have with them a well fitting gum shield. Attendees are advised to supply their own protective headgear and gloves, although there is communal kit available at the class. If you wish to bring your own gloves, be aware that they must be a minimum of 16 ounces, have attached thumb, Velcro closure (not laces) with the majority of the padding at the strike area of the glove. Cleto Reyes and Grant pro sparring gloves are NOT suitable, nor are any low quality gloves. Preferred gloves are 16oz Twins or Top Ten Velcro wrist closure. Our preferred headgear is either the Cleto Reyes pointed nylon bar full face http://www.geezersboxing.co.uk/boxing-headguards/bar-faced-headguard/cleto-reyes-pointed-nylon-bar-headguard-black or the Cleto Reyes rounded nylon bar full face http://www.geezersboxing.co.uk/boxing-headguards/bar-faced-headguard/cleto-reyes-rounded-nylon-bar-headguard-black. Those individuals training to compete in a London White Collar Boxing league match will be given the option of hiring one of these head gaurds for the duration of their training.
All Sparring Classes are 90 minutes long and will include directed drills, video support, contact sparring and circuit drills to condition you to be a great Boxer. The Trainer will stream you in the class and if you are new, may stream you with other similar attendees in a semi contact scenario until he feels you have the requisite skills and control to move onto more advanced moves. Both men and women are welcome to sparring. You do not have to be a Member to attend, and classes can be purchased from the Paypal link on this page. Standard terms and conditions apply.
