Phoenix Boxing is a simple and safe way to get into combat sports. Our Boxing program is popular because we are experienced at getting people started and follow a proven training system that gets results fast and teaches you how to Box. You can start at boxing or join boxing classes any time!
Boxing is the centre of all effective fighting systems - At Phoenix, we know boxing can be real and FUN.
Boxing is an integral part of Phoenix. All boxing classes are included in your unlimited membership packages so it is an easy choice. Just do Boxing if you want an effective way to get fit, learn self defence and like the focus of learning and being good at one thing. For some, starting at Boxing is an easier step as it is more focused on hand skills and footwork and doesn’t have as much ‘content’ as Muaythai classes. The Boxing is integrated into the Phoenix system so doing Boxing allows you to fit easily into the Muaythai classes and vis versa.  

For people who do Muaythai, you can never be a good enough boxer, so learn boxing and integrate it into your regular schedule. The gradings system overlaps and the classes are coached by the same crew of experienced coaches following the same base skills and format.

Either way, we will coach you to be the best you can be and learn correct boxing technique and style. Our boxing is organised, programmed, strict and the program works. If you want to learn REAL BOXING skills in a teamwork environment, with like minded people who like routine, strict classes and effective training, then Phoenix is for you….

Sparring - This is up to you, when you are ready and we think you are capable.

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.

Grading - Just a goal for you, but you can train just for fun if you want.

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 2/3 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.
