We often hear from our attendees that boxing classes are too crowded, and the
chances of picking up or
learning new techniques are very small.
First of all, it's to understand that there are two types of Boxing classes:
This is a class in which the instructor is more focused on the fitness part, by using boxing movements with little physical contact to be able to show the physical benefits of practicing this sport. These classes are usually open to everybody and any level.
I would say it’s a good way of starting out and get familiar with the sport of boxing, because these classes will teach you values like:
and many more
It will also help you to work on your coordination, and increase your fitness level.
Amateur or Professional Boxing:
This is where the actual Boxing training happens. Usually, this will lead a boxer to a fight or tournament.
The training sessions are structured to get boxers into a routine where the importance of developing the right techniques is crucial because without proper execution, the fight will turn against them.
At some point you will have to be ready to do some sparring in these classes, so you can expect to be punched in the face.
Know which type of boxing class you are looking for (Amateur/Professional or Recreational Boxing)
and try to make the most of it.
Like I mentioned in the introduction, recreational boxing classes tend to get very crowded. If you don’t know
what to do, don’t be afraid to ask the coach or instructor to repeat and show you the technique again, and don’t get
frustrated if they don't have time to get down to the details with you as they have to look after the whole class.
While the coach or instructor shows a technique, try to get the move as best as you can and copy or mimic them, because afterwards you will have a full 2/3 minutes round to practice it.
Boxing moves require a lot of co-ordination, so don’t be frustrated if you find it hard to reproduce them.
It can take time to get really good but repetition is key,
they even say that you need to do a movement 10000 times before it becomes natural!
That’s it for now! Feel free to email or message me if you want more information ;)
