WHEN most people who are not fans of boxing used to think of boxing they would think of knockouts, Mike Tyson biting ears, that famous picture of Muhammed Ali knocking out Sonny Liston, maybe Naseem Hammed coming to the ring on a flying carpet.

There are so many physical and mental benefits of boxing training.
Here are some:
- Weight & fat loss
- Muscle toning for the legs, core, arms, shoulders & back
- Increase overall strength, core strength, power, endurance, agility, balance, coordination, reflexes & speed
- Enhanced endurance, aerobic & anaerobic capacity
- Self defense
- Improved sleep
- Increased confidence, self-esteem & sense of well being
- Stress, anxiety & tension relief
- Enhanced cerebral focus, concentration & discipline
