Boxing at Legacy Martial Arts Academy

Our boxing sessions are a fantastic endorphin release workout that will help lose weight, tone up and feel fantastic!

We believe boxing is the heart and soul of modern combat and self defence.

You just have to look at any MMA combat sport from UFC - boxing techniques play a massive part in the game, from striking, defending, footwork, head movement, slipping and bob and weave.

To compete at the highest level, boxing has to be in your tool bag!

Stick Boxing

Find the boxer in you with this unique way of doing boxing training at long range. It utilises padded sticks as pads and improves punching speed, hand-eye coordination, accuracy and footwork. Learn to slip, bob and weave, snap back and how to hit your target with speed and accuracy.

The class is an hour long and consists of four sections

  1. Footwork - as it's the best way not to be hit!

  2. Punch combinations from our Legacy number system and 4D Combat approach to boxing

  3. Slips, bob and weave, snapbacks to avoid getting hit and to move you around your opponent

  4. Finishing off - we'll put it all together

Boxing as a sport involves using the fists to attack your opponent, and for defence as well. Boxers usually wear padded gloves and generally observe the code set forth in the Marquess of Queensberry Rules.

Boxing first appeared as a formal Olympic event in the 23rd Olympiad (688 BCE), but fist fighting contests must certainly have had their origin in mankind’s prehistory. The earliest visual evidence for boxing appears in Sumerian relief carvings from the 3rd millennium BCE. A relief sculpture from Egyptian Thebes (c. 1350 BCE) shows both boxers and spectators. These were bare-fisted contests with, at most, a simple band supporting the wrist.

The earliest evidence of the use of gloves or hand coverings in boxing is a carved vase from Minoan Crete (c. 1500 BCE) that shows helmeted boxers wearing a stiff plate strapped to the fist. Boxing has become one of the best all-round body work outs. It's about time the fitness industry took notice. Check out this Men’s Health blog 👇
