Boxing Awards

 

The ‘Noble Art’ of boxing is such an admirable skill itself, we feel it should be recognised.  Our Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum awards allow people to measure their development in the practical application of this sport.

 

The award scheme combines skill acquisition, pad work, fitness drills and sparring and challenges the individual further and further as they progress through the system.
