Our team will support you as you learn the art of boxing, gain confidence and learn how to stay calm under pressure.
Our gym was established by IBF World Champion, Darren Barker and former England Captain, Ryan Pickard, who is also a member of Team GB. We are proud to have an authentic love of boxing behind everything we do.
We have staffed our gym with professional boxers and each class we run contains proper boxing drills, which is what you would get in professional and amateur boxing clubs. You will have the opportunity to receive the kind of elite boxing coaching that you won't be able to gain elsewhere.
We have a team of amazing coaches, who provide incredible boxing training from our gym, based in Aldgate, London. Our exceptional coaches are committed to all areas of boxing, including the art of boxing, sparring and using what you've learnt. We understand that the contact element of boxing can feel intimidating and we will ensure that we work in a way that you're happy with and this means you can learn without hitting or being hit.
12x3 is completely open to newcomers and we adjust the training to work with the level that you're at. When you come to us for the first time, we would advise that you come 15 minutes before your session, so that we can show you round the gym and you can meet our team. It's our goal to make sure that you're comfortable before you start your first class.
All our classes are based around the coach's own experience and they will be teaching you what they've learnt from their own background within the world of boxing.
