If I am away for some of the core sessions am I still able to take part?
If you are new to boxing we recommend that you attend as many core sessions as possible. However missing a few will not stop you participating. Attend as many of the extra bonus classes as you can to catch up or to simply increase your skill level.
I am part of a corporate organisation or charity and want to have my own personal boxing event!
Amazing! We have a great corporate package for organisations looking to have their own boxing event this can be with or without supporting a charity. If you are a charity who would like to raise money GET IN TOUCH. There are no expenses for the charity and all proceeds raised go to your cause.
