About your mentors
Student Boxer and Coach
I first came to HOP when I moved to Portsmouth for University and the welcoming and understanding community meant I never left. I have now been helping with coaching the university students and the minows and junior for close to a year. I have completed a boxing tutor course and have recently completed theEngland Boxing Level 1 course. I enjoy the coaching as being able to help young people learn to improve themselves and push through struggles in a healthy way is hugely rewarding.
Student Coach
I am a student at the University of Portsmouth and part-time coach at Heart of Portsmouth Boxing Academy I have been boxing for 2 years and it has been incredible for my mental health, confidence, well-being and relationships. Heart of Portsmouth is more than just a great gym, it's part of a community. I love applying my skills in teaching and coaching to change young lives through the HOP/HAF programme.
Level 1 boxing coach with a passion for sport
I've been boxing since I was young, and have learned a lot about myself and the sporting world in that time. I am a very passionate and enthusiastic coach with a love for boxing, and strive to introduce a friendly and fun environment for newcomers and experienced people alike.
What we'll do
In the morning we do skipping, boxing technique, games and fun classes on the benefits of nutrition and exercise. We have lunch together at the local cafe followed by supervised play time (outdoor or indoor). During the afternoon we work on boxing technique and some sparring for those who have passed their awards and are ready (run by fully qualified England Boxing Coaches) as well as some clay modelling and painting on selected days (to be confirmed later). In boxing technique we work on boxing stance, guard, how to throw punches, how to use hand, foot and trunk defences, how to move in the ring. This includes 1-1 or 1-2 pad work for every boxer. For those who are ready, we run a 6-stage awards programme where boxers can earn a certificate and medal and advance to the next stage of their learning.
