PTSD is a common affliction of many who have served in the forces. Our own team member Jake Duggan knows only too well the challenges of dealing with this condition. Jake wanted to raise awareness and do something to help his fellow army veterans. We know that boxing is a fantastic tool for managing mental health. Focussing on learning technique takes you out of your mind and back to the present moment providing temporary relief from stress and negative thinking. Seeing progression and improvements builds self esteem. Something we believe is much needed for our army veterans.

With everything thats been going on this year charities have taken a huge hit. With remembrance day happening this month we wanted to do something to support our military heroes who give so much yet receive very little support.
This remembrance day weekend we are holding a Punch for PTSD fundraiser event to raise money for Help for Hero’s Charity.
Come along and join us for a military style boxing workout where all proceeds go towards Help for Hero’s providing support for ex-military personnel.
Workout takes place at 1pm on Sunday 8th November and is suitable for all levels of fitness and boxing experience.
