Do you train Pro fighters? And do you train beginners?

We do both! If it's your first class, we aren't going to send you to the wolves. You'll get plenty of one-on-one time, and make sure you understand the terms "Squish the bug", "Roll with the punch", "Jab/Cross/Hook", "Duck", "Slip" and a multitude of other terms. At Factum Boxing you will get as little or as much sparring (contact) as you would like.

Want to be a hero against a bag for your whole career? No problem, it's a great workout! But if you are looking for sparring partners, we have, in our gym anything from beginners to golden-glove state champions as sparring partners.

What you need to try Factum Boxing? What will your first boxing class be like?

If it's your first class, bring yourself and clothes you'd like to work out in. No, we aren't going to throw you in against some champs on day 1, so rest easy. Your first practice will focus mainly on form, and you'll probably get some one-on-one attention to breakdown how to move, punch, evade and block. For your first class, we will give you some wrist wraps, but we do recommend that you get some of your own. Those interested in sparring, should have a mouthpiece (required for sparring) and for the fella's a cup (highly recommended).

Do I really have to wrap my hands to try boxing?

Yes! Unless you're some kind of freak, you were born with 300 bones that magically turn into 206 bones by the time you became an adult. Over half of the bones in the human body are in your hands and feet. There are 27 individual bones in your hands and your hands aren't that big. That means those bones are quite small and fragile and should be looked after. We will teach you how best to wrap your hands.
