Tough week? Feeling frazzled? Time to punch it out. These friendly, non-contact boxing classes will help you sweat and reset.

What to expect

Warm and welcoming, we don’t do machismo, and we don’t care how you look on Instagram, either.

Our expert coaches look after your physical and mental wellbeing, schooling you in proper boxing technique, and leading mind-positive breathing and movement activities. Learn the essential elements of boxing, from throwing the perfect jab, to footwork. You’ll do padwork in pairs to put these skills into practice, followed by strength and conditioning work. We’ll then guide you through mindful movement and breathing activities. You’ll leave feeling stronger, recharged and ready to make the most of your weekend.

And, for even more of a feel-good glow, every penny of profit goes to fund In Your Corner’s life-changing local mental health projects for young people. Find out more here.

No experience required, but if you have boxing skills and want to level up, we’re here for you too!
