12x3 are a boxing gym in London who offer professional training and classes. You can learn the true art of boxing and work with our experienced boxing champions.
Attend our boxing classes or join our one-to-one sessions and develop your boxing skills. You will train with actual boxers and learn in the most authentic way possible. We are here to help you to build your confidence, improve your composure under pressure and learn the discipline of boxing.
We were founded by Darren Barker, who is former IBF World Champion and Ryan Pickard, who is former England Captain and member of Team GB. 12x3 has genuine boxing passion at the heart of all of our offerings.
Our coaches are experienced boxers and all of our classes involve original boxing drills - just like in amateur and professional boxing clubs. You can have exclusive access to boxing coaching that cannot be found anywhere else.
Our coaches deliver outstanding boxing training from our gym in Aldgate, East London. We are dedicated to teaching every aspect of boxing, whether that is sparring, the art of boxing or putting what you have learnt into action. If you are worried about the contact aspect of boxing, we will work to a level you are comfortable at (you can learn without needing to hit or be hit).
We welcome all newcomers - we will tailor the training to suit your experience level. If it is your first time with us, please arrive 15 minutes early so that we can provide you with a tour of the gym and introduce you to the team. We are here to make you feel comfortable prior to the class beginning!
Our classes are centred around the coach. They will teach you skills that they have acquired from their direct experiences in the boxing industry.
At 12x3, you can learn from the very best in the boxing world. All of our classes are delivered by our expert boxing champions. Every coach has their own set of skills and experiences for you to learn from.
