Youngsters with boxing ambitions had a taste of life in the ring.
Around 30 students at Stockley Academy were treated to a presentation from the London Amateur Boxing Association (London ABA) who taught them some non-contact moves and afterwards awarded them with certificates for their hard work.
The presentation was the first one in a series of boxing and safety projects organised by London ABA, in conjunction with Network Rail and Sport England.
It kick-started a 10-week long project in which students will learn the basics of the sport with a view to joining the Hayes ABA, in Judge Heath Lane, one of the oldest boxing clubs in the world.
Charles Nightingale, PE teacher, said: “The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to engage in non-contact boxing sessions, where they were exposed, in a controlled environment, to the health benefits and and skills the sport delivers.”
