Cuban Boxing Academy focuses on social inclusion and healthy lifestyle choices for young people.
We use non-contact boxing to help young people stay in education and work towards fulfilling their ambitions.
Our programme has been used to help young people who are “Not in Education, Employment or Training” (NEET) and use boxing principles to give them discipline and structure in their lives.
Based on Cuba’s successful Olympic Boxing programme (achieved as part of the Cuban schooling system) we have been mentoring and coaching non-contact boxing in schools, Pupil Referral Units (PRU’s) and Youth Organisations for the past four years.
As well as delivering physical training, we have improved students’ self-confidence, encouraged interaction and inspired a positive outlook on their future.
We teach girls and boys of all ages, backgrounds and abilities in a fun, safe environment.
Our coaches are fully qualified, DBS checked and often work with “hard-to-reach” students, many of whom are involved in anti-social behaviour.
We believe that every child matters and our holistic approach include working with a student’s family and teachers where necessary.
Other benefits of our programme can include:
- Improved attendance
- Better performance in other subjects
- Appreciating further education
- Awareness of the human body and nutrition
- Reduced risk of obesity and linked diseases
- Recognising future career opportunities
