The Photo Gallery: New


The rugby season is over and Dan and his friend needed a new outlet for their aggression energy.
So clearly boxing is the way forward. Thanks for that husband.

The husband has spent a lot of time coaching and guiding and showing how to punch safety and how to punch effectively. How to maximise effort, how to stand properly, how to stay on your toes and how to jab jab jab, how to work on core strength.

Then the boys put the gloves on and their head guards and all training flies out the window as they giggle and bear-hug their way through a boxing session.
I have NEVER heard such laughter.
So while I initially baulked at the thought of the pair of them turning into pugellists, this new pastime seems the perfect way to exercise their laughter. So I’m all for it.
At least for now . . .

    Teaches great discipline and strength. Perfect in my book. We also have the gloves and pads. When I feel the need for an aggression outburst, I make my 6 year old catch a few punches….

    In the days before being a mum to teenage boys I used to be quite against boxing on principal. I didn't like the idea of training boys to beat each other. That all changed as my boys got older, they enrolled in a Karate class that taught them discipline, respect, self defence and provided an outlet for hormonal aggression, when they're not giggling of course πŸ™‚
