The boxing season for the Cincinnati High School Boxing Team and the UC Boxing Club started as of Nov 4. We had a very good turnout, with approximately 50 kids across both teams coming out to the first week of practices. We have a lot of returnees from last season’s team but also a lot of new team members. On the High School Boxing Team we have team members from Moeller, Walnut Hills, Elder, SCPA, Taft, Madeira, St. Ursula, Badin, Colerain, St. Xavier, Oak Hills, Princeton and others.
The first week of practice was spent mostly going over boxing basics including stance, footwork, jab, cross, head movement, defensive moves such as catch and parry and basic conditioning. The intensity will pick up soon as we get into bag work, focus mitts, harder conditioning and eventually sparring.
