All sparring and competitive boxing is directly supervised. For sparring it is led by a qualified coach under controlled conditions. Both boxers wear approved gloves and headguards as well as additional protection such as a gumshield.
In order to compete a member must first complete an annual medical with an approved Doctor. This is then repeated on the day of each bout with a Doctor and paramedic at the ringside for every bout.

Is boxing safe?

Olympic-style boxing ranks as the safest amongst all contact sports (such as football and rugby) and amongst other events such as equestrian, motor cycle racing and mountaineering.

New era boxing goes to great lengths to protect its athletes. Boxers must wear a mouth guard at all times, as well as protective hand bandages, ‘cup’ protectors and a shirt to absorb sweat. Female boxers are also required to wear breast protectors.
Boxing gloves are designed and tested to absorb, and not transmit shock under recognised safety guidelines from the International Boxing Association (AIBA) Safety Commission. Boxing referees strive to minimise risk of injury by using eight counts and evaluating the boxers throughout a bout and can dispense counts at anytime (unlike in professional boxing).
In addition to these stringent safety factors, pre and post bout medicals are required for all boxers each and every time they compete.

Do you sell boxing items at the club?
