IMPORTANT PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:

A friendly group for people who would like to try sparring with different partners, or just need someone to help with pad work. The focus is on improving boxing technique and sharpness. All abilities welcome.

I spent around 18 months attending kickboxing classes until a back injury restricted me to Queensbury style boxing. I have wanted to get back into sparring and using pads for some time and meet up seemed like the perfect platform. If you just want to work on pads that's fine, there is no pressure to spar. The sparring can be very light minimal contact until you build up confidence. Whatever suits you.

***PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT A FITNESS CLASS AND I AM NOT AN INSTRUCTOR*** <br>

***This is not a boxercise class. The main goal of this meetup is to improve boxing technique*** <br>

***Complete beginners cannot be provided with tuition. This meetup is for people with at least a basic knowledge of boxing i.e. stance/footwork, the basic punches (jab, cross, hook, uppercut) and basic defence. (Skill level is not important, we are here to help each other improve)*** <br>

I set this group up because I wanted to find a few people who had previously or currently attend boxing/kickboxing/martial arts classes who would like to work with similar people doing pad work and sparring to maintain sharpness and exchange tips and techniques.

You will need to bring your own gloves and pads!! This is essential.

I have no idea how this will take shape, so please feel free to make suggestions at anytime. I look forward to meeting everyone. <br>
