Boxing Classes

Good afternoon, I' m trying to locate a boxing club in Bloemfontein where myself and my husband can learn the fundamentals of boxing? What size punching bag would you recommend and would mitts or boxing gloves be best?

HI Susan,

Please contact Aileen for classes in Bloemfontein at:

If you are working against a punching bag then proper punching mitts would be better than gloves. If you are sparring or working against a partner then a gloves would be better. You get various bag sizes that perform various functions in your training. Usually a medium size bag is more versatile for all round training i.e. one which is not too heavy or too light when you punch it. Ultimately the best would be to get various sizes and shapes i.e. uppercut bag to vary your training. Light bags work your speed and heavy bags your strength.

I' m trying to locate a boxing gym/classes near the Johannesburg CBD. I' ve googled it but clubs listed are in other provinces or Pretoria.

Hope you' ll be able to assist me.
