Boxing clubs on or near base
« on: January 28, 2014, 00:57:10 »
Hey guys I was just wondering if anyone could tell me whether or not there was some sort of boxing club in the CAF itself or if there are any boxing clubs a reasonable distance from CFB's such as Petawawa, Edmonton, Shilo, and Gagetown

Thank you

There's one in Fredericton, which is close to Gagetown.

Rohandro, I have seen your other thread, the locked one. I am glad you are thinking about boxing, I was going to reply to that one and suggest exactly that. I am fairly new to boxing myself, but thoroughly enjoy it, by far the best cardio ever. Not to mention the actual sparring :).  If there are more than one club in the vicinity, I recommend checking them all, in boxing it is VERY important who is coaching you, some demented old boxers should just retire in peace.

Ive actually been boxing for a long while now I left it about a year ago to concentrate on school but now I was thinking of picking it up again so I just wanted to find a good facility to train at, I cant really find anything near petawawa though so I hope I don't get put there :/

If memory serves me correctly, the CF distanced itself from pugulism back in the mid to late 80's.  I think it "might" fall under the umbrella of an "extreme sport" today.  I am sure someone who works for PSP would be able to expand on this.

So I don't think you are going to find it available on any Base/Wing as an organized activity.

It might be available in Messes from time to time but definitely not as an "organized" event or activity.

I could see why they wouldn't want soldiers beating each other up but it still sucks its not available as an option on all the bases even as a recreational activity
