YOGI’S Boxing Classes have begun at the Poultry Shed Pavilion (new shed just past the Pontville cricket and footy ovals). The classes train four nights a week (Mondays to Thursdays), from 6pm – 7.30pm with children from 10 years old and upwards invited to join. Younger children (10-16) can attend earlier classes on these days from 5-6pm.
Joseph ‘Yogi’ Maughan, a former boxer who has been boxing since he was eight years old, said the classes provided a great environment for young people to learn the sport.
The classes have boxers of all skill levels from beginners right through to boxers who have represented the State. There is no obligation on boxers to compete with many choosing to train for fitness and fun, however all benefit from the 25 years of training and experience brought to the club by trainer Yogi.
Come along and meet new friends, have fun, get fit, and learn the skills of boxing.
A small joining fee of $20 per year covers equipment and insurance and then you are able to attend all classes with no additional costs. Contact Yogi after 2pm weekdays for more info on 0437 508 953, or just come along to a training session and give it a go!
