SPARRING

Sparring is the next stage in progression from the regular boxing classes at BLOK - taking the skills learnt on the bags and pads and putting them into practice in the ring, with an opponent! this is a controlled environment where participants are taught movement, footwork, defence, and ring craft. This a mixed level class where safety is paramount - so a gum shield is essential. These can be purchased in advance at reception and need to be moulded at home. Complete beginners should not attend this class - it is best to get a grounding in the regular boxing classes first - but equally, it is not necessary to be advanced as the instructor will match people evenly and make sure the sparring remains controlled at all times.

Hand wraps are recommended for this class. click here for guidance. hand wraps can be purchased from reception.
