It is easy to overlook the history of boxing in Brisbane.
Ever since the days of the historical boxing events held at Brisbane’s (now closed) Festival Hall, Boxing in Brisbane and Logan has been a popular past time. Many great fighters throughout the years have represented our great city, such as Paul Briggs, Jarrod Fletcher, and Alex Leapai just to name a few.
With Logan having a reputation for being tough, there is no doubt that boxing is a popular sport. In saying that, we at The Fight Centre – Brisbane have no time for any thuggish behavior, and people with the wrong attitude have been told to get their act together or leave the gym. Our number one priority is the safety of our students, and no one’s ability to learn should be hindered by another student trying to prove themselves by beating up beginners.
Boxing can help people to gain confidence and learn to be more comfortable, no matter what environment they’re in. Not only does it provide a platform for us to get a great workout, helping us to lose weight and feel more confident, but it also gives us the skills to protect ourselves from a possible attacker.
Many of our members choose to use the specific hand skills to give their punching an edge that other Muay Thai students don’t posses. Other students choose to take the skills learned and apply them to the sole purpose of boxing, competing in amateur and professional bouts. But many of the other students that take part in the boxing classes do it just for the fun atmosphere that is always prevalent, making it an easy way to increase fitness levels and drop those few extra kilos. It’s always a relaxed and fun environment in the evening boxing classes, making it easy to choose not to go out for those few beers after work that can ruin your progress!View Classes Our Facilities
