Phoenix Boxing is a part of our striking program and integrated with our Muay Thai and Kickboxing programs. All expert coaches are experienced at coaching beginners to Intermediate students at the fundamentals of boxing and developing everyone’s skills and fitness. The Boxing program is a graded development program that consists of classes of three levels; Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.

Boxing participants can also train Muay Thai regularly as the base program, class format and coaches are all a part of the one developmental system. The striking system for boxing, mirror the striking skills for Muay Thai and only develop into more specialised boxing skills as the student progress above TTFU level.


At Phoenix, intermediate Muay Thai practitioners can cross over anytime to do boxing classes. All sparring is done as a joint class with anyone choosing to spar having the advantage of many people to work with from Boxing and Muay Thai. Students must be graded or invited to learn and practice sparring. Anyone considering competition must join the Phoenix Fight Team and be graded to Level 1 or above and then do the training required to achieve that goal. 99% of people that do boxing do not compete but still enjoy learning sparring and the challenges and rewards of real boxing over fitness only styles of boxing.


There is a Boxing grading system that progresses from Beginner to TTFU, to Level 1 then Level 2 and Level 3. The grading system is displayed on the walls of Phoenix Gym. Students grade at seminars and also in classes when they meet the required standards of ability, attendance and attitude. Normally 80% of people enjoy and remain in Beginner classes because they are constantly learning and improving and the classes are planned and developmental for all participants. TTFU level classes are focused on developing the defences and skills required for contact boxing and partner work with the aim of teaching and developing sparring skills. Level 1 plus classes include intermediate level skills, harder fitness and sparring drills. Intermediate classes and both physically and mentally challenging and involve contact and attack and defence drills. Grading is ability and aptitude based and not time based or self-assessed, our experienced coaches will guide you.
