  • I’ve never done boxing before, does this matter?"
    No, if you come to boxing to learn we will teach you! During Semester teaching weeks, we recommend you attend our Beginner Boxing + Cardio Box sessions. If you cannot make it to these sessions you are welcome to come to our Technique Class. During non-Semester periods all beginners are welcome to any of our Technique sessions, where we take first-time boxers aside to teach you the basics.
  • Are there women in the club?
    Yes, we have had females for both competition training and for general fitness. We welcome everybody into the club.
  • I just want to improve my fitness; do I have to spar with other people?
    No, many members come to training as a way of improving their fitness with no intention of getting in the ring. Only members of the club are permitted to spar. As well as providing serious coaching for competitions, we can give training for self-defense or provide a challenging and interesting sport to improve fitness.
  • Do you train over the holidays?
    Yes, training is held nearly all year round. Check Facebook for specific dates.
  • Do I need to bring my own equipment?
    No, our club is equipped with bags, gloves, focus mitts, weights, speed balls, skipping ropes etc. We also have headgear for sparring; however you will not be permitted to spar unless you are a member of the Club and are wearing your own mouth-guard. ​We also recommend purchasing hand-wraps for your protection of your wrists and knuckles. These can be purchased at UQ Boxing for $10.
  • What happens on a Sunday session?
    Sundays are un-coached and offer the chance for a self-directed training session where members are able to come in and work at their own pace using club equipment. These sessions are quieter than weekday sessions; however, unless you have boxed before, it is best to attend a few weekday classes first until you are confident training without direction.
  • Do I need to be a UQ student/staff/alumni?
    No, you do not need to be a part of the UQ community and our club’s membership is a mix of backgrounds and ages.
