Therapy Boxing Program: Your child or teen may not ever become the heavyweight champion, but he or she can reap several benefits from the sport of boxing and group counseling if they are struggling with behavior issues, emotional problems, or are on the autism spectrum. Training in this sport can help children and teen excel both physically and mentally.
Our Therapy Boxing program reaches out to the places that other sports and conventional therapy don't reach. Why? Because it engages with young people on their own terms and recognises that frustration and aggression that is so often the hallmark of teenage years. The goal of our program is to give young people who may be bad at everything else they've tried a sense of worth and self-esteem. Encouraging them to stop labelling themselves with negative labels.
