    The Skills

    The sessions will be focused on the progression of your skills as a boxer. These are the steps we will follow;

    1. Footwork and Fundamental Punches are the foundation of boxing. These drills and skills will continue to be repeated throughout the program.
    2. Defence; Slip, Weave, Block and Parry. Alone with footwork, you will need to add defensive skills. You will learn to be capable and comfortable with defending yourself in the ring. Knowing about your hand position, head movement and body position will help you to defend yourself.
    3. Counter Punching Skills are next, once you can defend, you can counter punch and attack. Good counter punching will score points and discourage your operant from attacking.  
    4. Attack Options skills allow you to create your own attacking opportunities. Moving in-and-out or circling during your attack will also help you avoid your opponent’s counter punching.
    5. Ring Craft is the art of hitting without getting hit, it includes ring awareness, knowing where you and your operant are in the ring, how to manoeuvre in and out of the corner, how to fight opponents with different styles, physical characterises and strengths.

    You may need to do other training exercises to improve your overall fitness level like the Get Fit Boxing Classic classes, running, cycling or weight training. You will be able to spar for 4 to 6 rounds of 3 minutes before your first bout of 3 rounds of 2 minutes
