Ever thought of trying boxing but didn’t know where to start? Watched a big fight and wanted to give it a go? NTU boxing has sessions for beginners all the way through to competing at a national level, with experienced coaches taking you through every stage.
Aside from looking to advance and compete, boxing is a great sport for general fitness and makes working out a lot more interesting than going to the gym. You’ll also get a strong society that has social events weekly, and really includes everyone as a team.
Our Coach is called Rocky, he is former trainer of the Shri Lankan Olympic team.
You will be training with one of the top five universities in the country and there are opportunities to join Amateur British Association Squad and compete locally and nationally.
These sessions are coached by Jawaid Khaliq, a former IBO (International Boxing Organisation) welterweight world boxing champion.
