The four-hour Boxing Activator course focuses on non-contact, recreational activities and games that acts as a taster for what boxing is about.

Participants will learn boxing technique, pad work, session planning, warm up games, and circuit games, alongside the four activator non-contact boxing school games skill cards which creates the foundation of the course.

Boxing Activator will be delivered by England Boxing tutors at venues around the country for up to 16 people at a time, starting in November 2022, though bookings can be made by clicking here.
