“This academic year students at the Heart of Worcestershire College have been receiving a boxing masterclass from Redditch Boxing Academy.

Working with our inclusive learning department, Richard and Rachel have delivered some fun, but challenging session for our students, all of whom have thoroughly enjoyed every minute!

Each week they have adapted sessions to suit the individual needs of our learners as well as pushing those who wanted to challenge themselves further.

Both instructors have been fantastic with the groups and I would highly recommend them to any individual or organisation that wish to get involved in boxing”.

” Both my autistic brother and downs syndrome sister attend weekly.

They have both attended weekly for well over a year and enjoy both  the physical and social aspects that the sessions offer. As the siblings no longer live together it gives an opportunity for them not only to socialise with one another, but with numerous others with disabilities that also attend, which have now become new friends.

They enjoy the  fitness,  both laughing excitedly throughout the sessions. Zumba is literally a life saver, especially for Gemma who is overweight and avoids exercise by all means.

The way the classes are ran ……..laughing, joking, having fun and all taking turns to lead the class etc,  she doesn’t even realise that she’s exercising! I don’t personally know of anywhere else within our vicinity that offer such a good specific provision and have such a good understanding of those with special needs…….and it’s a voluntary organisation too…..amazing! ”
