Flames Fitness are structured into levels. Graduation to a higher level only happens when you have satisfied the coach that you have learnt and developed proficiency in the relevant skills. This ensures that everyone will mastered the basics of the sport such as footwork, correct jab technique and hip/shoulder involvement, etc, at the start before moving on to the more complicated skills.
Only after the coach determines that you have sufficiently developed your skills will you be allowed to spar. Sparring provides a way for amateur boxers to put into practice the moves and combinations that they have learnt through their training, helping them identify flaws in their technique or understanding. If you are not interested in sparring then you don’t have to do it; you will still gain a lot from the basic training.
Amateur boxing is a point scoring sport. With a focus on fair matching and strict refereeing, amateur boxing is renowned as one of the safest sports practiced worldwide, boasting a lower injury rate than nearly any other sport.
Flames Fitness offers coaching for amateur boxers. Quinten Brown (Head Coach) is a registered amateur boxing coach and a registered professional boxing coach. With over 30 years boxing experience as both a competitor and coach, you are always in good hands when you train with Quinten.
Boxing drills may also be incorporated into personal fitness programs. Contact our office to find out more.
You must register to compete as an amateur boxer. Visit the Boxing ACT website to obtain the registration form.

Monday sessions are Pad Skills and drills combined with footwork and fitness, Wednesday Sessions are a contact session requiring a mouth-guard (we can supply Headguards and gloves if needed) working on defensive skills and drills, please note that this is drill work only and not heavy sparring. Sparring sessions are also held from 5:30pm to 6:30pm before classes on the Monday and Wednesday.
Boxing tournaments are held around NSW throughout the year with both Boxing Australia League and Boxing Australia. If you wish to compete, our coach will manage the preparations such as your weigh-in, getting you matched with a suitable opponent (usually arranged prior to the tournament), ensuring you are properly rested prior to the match, helping you warm-up and providing last minute advice before the match. Your coach will be with you in your corner of the ring helping you throughout the actual fight.
Weight divisions were developed to limit the chance of injury experienced by a smaller boxer fighting a larger one. Boxers are sorted into divisions based on their weight and experience, meaning that a 65-kilogram boxer will not be in the ring against someone twice their weight. The technique taught and assessed is the same between divisions, but the match is fairer and safer.
Training is held 2 times a week in the gym. You should also practice in your own time for an additional 1-3 times per week.
Boxing for juniors
Boxing classes are for all age groups. Juniors from the age of 10 are allowed to compete, but they are not obligated to spar as the training is great as a cross training activity that complements almost any sport. Your child will build hand-eye coordination, fitness and speed as well as improved self-confidence.
