Getting Started in Boxing

Amateur boxing is a dynamic form of exercise that has many social, physical and mental well-being benefits.

Many people have expressed that participating in boxing has helped with self confidence and self esteem. Others enjoy boxing because it is different and liberating and it has helped them to overcome situations such as being attacked or bullied as well as anger management, and stress.

The best way to start to pursue amateur boxing further is by joining the club. Monkstown Boxing Club is affiliated to the IABA Рthe country’s national governing body.

If you enjoy the sport, the training in the club should enable you to progress gradually and at your own pace. If you are keen to progress you will need to increase your training and also exercise outside of the boxing club. Good cross training includes swimming and running to improve stamina levels. One of our club coaches can advise you.
