Boxing is a 'Hit'

Boxing is a ‘Hit’ at St. Joseph’s

Living up to Muhammad Ali’s exhortation to float like a butterfly and sting like a bee, St. Joseph’s pupils have been showcasing a variety of skills at the new after school Boxing Club run by Olympia Boxing.

16 pupils from Years 3 to 6 have been learning how to channel confidence, resilience and self-belief with a drive to improve fitness levels under the watchful eye of Warren, the Coach.  ll of the techniques taught are designed to be non-contact with the key message of the club being about sharpening the wits, believing in yourself and promoting good emotional control and self-awareness.  Whilst mentally being taught to “Walk tall”, the children are put through intensive circuit training, skipping and pad work so that there are a lot of sweaty heads at the end of the session.

Learning these skills and honing physical fitness with a highly trained adult and in a safe space has been a huge ‘Hit’ at the school.
