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.
Our training is extremely varied with circuits and sparring being a couple of examples. All training sessions are run with a level-to-skill matching mindset through people of equal levels training together and intensity levels being personally set.
Rocky is the coach for the regular training sessions. He is the former Sri Lankan Olympic Boxing team coach.
Jawaid Khaliq is the coach for the advanced sessions. He is the former IBO (International Boxing Organisation) Welterweight World Boxing Champion.
Being part of the advanced team will give you the opportunity to be part of the ABA (Amateur British Association) and compete national and internationally. There will also be the opportunity to take part in BUCS (British University and College Sport), competing against other universities.
