2018 White Collar Boxing – The bar has been set

So in 2017 we received the above certificate from Cancer Research UK. It was a fantastic year for the white collar boxing in Lincoln. With £31,000 raised for the charity in one year, we now have a new goal to meet, the bar has been set.

2018 White Collar Boxing – Season 1

The first event this year has been scheduled for Saturday 14th April at the Deans leisure centre on Monks road.

Were expecting to be busy with upwards of fifty lunatics making it through to the end and fighting for a great cause.

2018 White Collar Boxing – Get Involved

If you’re interested in a new challenge, something to really take you out of your comfort zone then get in touch with the UWCB organisation and secure your place for this seasons event.

You’ll meet lots of inspiring people going through the same doubts and worries as you. The fight is the 8 week journey to the show. The event itself is over in minutes. But the entire journey can have a positive impact on your life forever if you let it.

2018 White Collar Boxing – Who’s this for?

If you have never boxed before, never even put a pair of boxing gloves on. Then you won’t be alone, it’s mostly people like you.

Boxed before? great, you know what to expect.

There’s a great mix of people from young to not so young. From athletic fit gym bods to never left the couch and love pizza. Everyones on those mats for one reason, to raise money for a great cause, no one is judged, no one is left out.

The Myths

Boxing Headguards – not what most think

Boxing Headguards – The Simple Truth

The international boxing commision say concussions went down 43% when they removed head guards

Headguruards in Boxing and other martial arts are mainly used for stopping cuts and the clash of heads. This is actually a great use for them, but the myth seems to be that they stop head trauma.

This is not true, if you punch someone hard in the head the brain still moves around with or without a headguard on.

In fact many experts believe the headguard actually increases the brain movement, see the video below.

There you go, that’s it. Now let’s look at why and how to train safely

Boxing Headguards – Train Skillfully

So this is how we train Boxing at Function First Lincoln, in fact, all our martial arts are trained like this.

We decided many years ago to adjust the way we train and the school of hard knocks is just not our way. Don’t misunderstand that last statement, we train hard and we go hard especially when prepping for a fight show.

One thing is this though, once you get used to being punched in the head then there is little if any benefit of being punched in the head any more.

Boxing Headguards – Schools of thought

There are different schools of thought on this. Some professional fighters don’t spar at all and some go 100% every session.

We work on a 100 to 1 ratio and we alter it a little when you have a fight coming up.

100 sparring sessions where you train technique and skill to one heavy session.

Boxing Headguards – Skill over Power

We believe its much more useful and safer to develop skill and control of your strikes. Find your targets while skillfully tagging your training partner means you can go to work the next day without looking like you have been in a car crash. In fact, you don’t need to feel like you have been in one either.

Boxing Charity Event

Huge Success

So after 8 weeks of gruelling training, 40 fighters stepped into the ring and boxed it out for charity

This is our (Function First’s) seventh event working with the UWCB crew and as always it’s been an amazing experience

The event at Deans leisure centre on Monks Rd in Lincoln was, as always a sellout event and from 6 pm to 10 pm we had 20 fights. Some people had never put a pair of gloves on prior to training with us, which is a fantastic achievement.

This event the fighters raised nearly £10,000 for Cancer Research UK meaning UWCB is the largest donor to the charity. At Lincoln alone, we have raised over £50,000 in the last couple of years and nationwide over £8.000.000 YEP 8 Million pounds

The next UWCB event begins in July with fight night early September so get signed up if your interested

Massive respect to all those who took part, some life changing moments for sure
