In 2006 Anthony Hull opened the D&A Boxing School of Excellence with the vision of helping local youth from the South Birmingham area.
With the lack of facilities available to young people in the area, local youth were bored and left with nothing to do. This lead to some becoming involved in crime and antisocial behavior, which has a huge impact on our society.
Social inclusion through sports participation is considered to be an avenue for improving social connection opportunities for marginalised groups such as young people. So with Anthony extensive knowledge of boxing, they used their combined skills and knowledge and decided to open a gym to provide the local youth with a safe environment to train in.
In December the D&A Boxing School of Excellence celebrated our 13 year anniversary, this wouldn't have been possible without the hard work and continued dedication of every member of the D&A team.
We appreciate the support that the local community have given us and would like to thank everyone who have been involved with the gym.
For boxers, as with any sport, a good diet is a crucial part of staying in shape and keeping up with the demands of a training regime. Boxers need to eat well in order to maintain muscle strength and energy in the ring, and to avoid feeling tired and sluggish part way through a fight. Boxers use punches, jabs, speed and flexibility requiring strength, endurance and energy to defeat their opponent. As a result, they require a nutritious diet which will provide high levels of energy to last throughout the duration of a fight.
If a healthy diet is something you struggle with or like most of us, are to busy to commit yourself , then we recommend you try Eat Yourself into Shape.
