Boxing is an intensity sport in which you use a lot of energy in a short time. During competitions, a round lasts only 2 or 3 minutes. Hand, foot and eye coordination are important, but you are also mentally busy making split-second decisions. Keep watching is important so you can read your opponent and predict what he/she/they are going to do. In an official match, boxers try to score points by hitting each other on the right hit areas. This requires 3 judges who use the '10-points must system' to decide who will be the winner of the match.

(Thursday 19:00 – 20:30)

The boxing workout starts with a warm-up and a conditioning section. After this, the gloves go on. Here you box in pairs and work on your boxing technique. Every quarter, a lesson package is offered in which the following subjects are covered: basic stance, direct punches, angles, step punch, dodging, diving, uppercut, footwork, stepping through, feints, liver, mild strikes, boxing styles, watching and body & mind.  The classes build on each other, although you can join any class without any experience. Training is almost always concluded with sparring to test the techniques just learnt in practice.

(Thursday 20:30 – 22:00)

You are expected to be able to stand in the basic stance, perform direct punches, angles and uppercuts without difficulty.

The training differs from beginner training by focusing more on reacting rather than a punch combination. It also moves on more quickly to more advanced exercises such as the 21-punch combination or the leader-follower game. The training ends with a spar session.
