Good morning guys!
I just wanted to say well done as we come to the close of this years boxing season.
Well done to all those that boxed and represented jack bishop in it’s first year of amateur boxing competing in 6 bouts.
A massive well done to Amy, Emma, Thomas & Victoria all of whom have raised the bar of expectation for anyone wanting to box for this amazing gym.
The feed back received from England boxing officials on all our boxers has been nothing less than exceptional. To say I’m proud is a serious understatement!

I want to also thank my wingmen Pete and Craig for the support given this season. With an extra special thanks to Craig our matchmaker who spend hours upon hours trying to match you all, it’s a brutal and thankless task and undertaking.

Most clubs take a well earned break and close for this period to recharge their batteries but not jack bishop boxers! Now training in preparation for the new season beginning in September really begins.

That said having spoken to Pete we will be closing the gym during the day for the time being as I really have neglected my business over the last year and want to take a couple of months to focus on it and my staff will review again in September.

Evening training will remain unchanged. It will be high intensity fitness with less focus on skills and techniques. So do not bring boxing boots please bring trainers.

Well done again and a massive thank you as this boxing club isn’t a club without you - the boxers.

Out again with Jack Bishop Boxing this weekend.
Not only did Amy give away a whooping 3kgs against her opponent, she also gave away some ring experience.
She didn’t care on either count and just wanted to get in the squared ring and dance under the lights showing all onlookers what real courage & heart looks like .
She didn’t get the decision but we didn’t care. Another 3 rounds clocked up as we focus and work towards her next in a couple of weeks.

Like the other boxers at Jacks she stands tall and proves that all Jacks boxers will stand toe to toe with anyone put before them. 🥊

Well done Amy; to say that I am proud of you is a categorical understatement.

Here we have boxer of the week Brookson Watts well done buddy for all that hard work you have put in this week


A massive well done to Craig Palmer who today completed his Level 1 England boxing coaches course. Craigs step daughter Amy boxes for the club and he’s been involved helping Danny and the club for a while now. He’s already the clubs matchmaker and now he’s also become the clubs third qualified England boxing coach. I’ve only met Craig a few times but he seems like a good decent bloke and Danny speaks really highly of him. Although Craigs new to the coaching game and will have lots to learn he’s willing to serve his apprenticeship and I may be biased but he’s not gonna get a much better mentor than Danny. The thing that strikes me about Craig and also the thing that danny has mentioned about him many times is the love and passion Craig has for boxing, for seeing his girl and the other boxers fulfill their potential and also how much he loves being part of Jacks gym. Danny and myself are over the moon to have people like Craig and Pete involved in the Aba set up of the gym and we thank you kindly for coming on the journey with us ❤️


🥊🥊10 reasons you should be boxing🥊🥊

"Son, we’re all fighters, every single one of us. Fighting is the first sport of every man and woman. From the minute we’re born, we’re fighting to breathe, to open our eyes. We’re fighting to walk and we’re fighting to talk. You can’t get rid of the desire to fight when it’s your very first lesson in life.

Boxing is a primal instinct, instilled into us from birth. Not only that, it’s a killer workout. Tennis players, footballers and dancers have been known to jab, hook and upper cut their way to the top of their chosen sport; basically, if you want to be a better athlete, step into the ring. Still not convinced? Here’s 10 reasons why everyone worth their fitness salt should integrate boxing into their routine:

1) One word: Cardio There’s a reason boxers are the fittest athletes around; boxing burns around 727 calories an hour. Tired of monotonous treadmill runs? Switch it up with intense boxing drills, sparring and bar work circuits until you’re gasping for breath. Boxing doesn't’t just look fierce – it delivers.

2) Serious Cool Points Let’s be honest, faced with the choice of saying ‘I play a little five-aside’ or ‘I’m heading to the ring for a fight’ – well, we know which one we’d rather say. Boxing is just cool. And it’s good for you – result.

3) Improve Hand – Eye coordination When facing an opponent, you have a mere split second to protect your face from a flying fist. Yes, a badminton match improves hand – eye coordination too, but the threat of a black eye is some serious incentive to get out of the way!

4) Sharpen your Mind Not only a killer workout for your body, boxing strengthens one of the most important muscles you own – your brain. Unlike other sports, you have to be completely on the ball at all times, and thinking about both offense and defence simultaneously. Not to mention the character building effects of being in the ring and under pressure. The feeling you get from winning a boxing match is like no other; you’ll gain the confidence you need to take on anything in life – it’s about more than just physical fitness. Talk about incentive…

5) Spartan Abs of Steel Boxing is inarguably a great cardio and strength building workout, however what many people fail to realise is that it’s absolutely killer for your core. With every jab, hook and uppercut you’re effectively crunching your abs and getting closer to that six-pack dream. Boxers have a naturally low stance in the ring, tensing their quads and holding themselves in place with core strength - the low centre of gravity means the power from each punch comes directly from your core. For abs of steel forget the Pilates mat - grab your boxing gloves, instead.

6) Get out of your Fitness Rut Runner? Spinner? Yogi? Whatever your normal workout of choice, get off your butt and out of your rut and try something new. Not only will it be a refreshing change for the mind, mixing it up fitness wise has been proven to get results and combat the common weight loss plateau. Boxing is exhilarating, risky, and will help you improve at any other sport you do – what are you waiting for?

7) Get Sexy Muscles are sexy - fact. Boxing tones the entire body and the high intensity element of it means you’ll burn serious calories, and keep on burning fat throughout the day after a session. Boxing is a one way ticket to loving what you see in the mirror and feeling great about yourself. After all, who doesn't want to look good naked?

8) Time to Yourself Whether you’re a parent with young children, a high powered career type or simply find it difficult to switch off, boxing is a fantastic outlet for stress of any kind. In this age of constantly chasing our tails, we need to take time out for ourselves in order to function properly and maintain health and well-being. So get in the ring to let off steam and forget about the stresses of the day for an hour; your mental state will thank you for it.

9) Food Glorious Food Foodie? Well, we've got great news; the more you box, the more you need to eat. Training at an intense sport such as boxing means your body needs more fuel for energy, muscle growth and to burn all that excess fat. That’s right, delicious meals, a fitter body and none of the guilt. This is going to be delicious.

10) Endorphins With a killer workout comes a killer side effect; we can’t get enough of those endorphins! However much we don’t feel like working out, getting ourselves to the ring and finishing an epic session makes us feel, well, epic. The intensity of boxing means an hour or so is all you need to absolutely smash your body, reach your goals and feel amazing in the process. Never dread your workout again!

So there you have it, ten reasons you should get your butt into the ring, pronto. You can thank us later…😉🥊🥊




What makes a boxer and what does he need?
Like all things new he grows from the seed.
He has to be nourished, cherished and loved.
He needs the right temperament before he can be gloved.
Boxing is not for everyone as it’s a very hard sport.
People think it’s for all the thugs that end up in court.
But boxing is a gentleman’s sport governed by rules.
It’s not for the feint hearted and it does not suffer fools.
You have to be dedicated, motivated and have a stubborn streak.
You have to be brave, strong, as there’s no time for the weak.
You have to be patient and learn your craft.
It’s like being stranded and slowly building a raft.
Fitness is the key and you have to have a big heart.
You have to be single minded right from the start.
You have to take defeat as well as the win.
Also it really helps if you have a strong chin.
In this game you travel a lot sitting in wait.
Always worried have you made the weight.
Diet becomes a part of your everyday life.
As does the stress and the strife.
Every boxer has to start at the bottom.
Some clubs are good but some are rotten.
But most clubs are genuine and they treat you right.
They should guide you and nurture you for every single fight.
Some people don’t like boxing and think it should be band.
In an ideal World that view would be grand.
But boxers are not stupid, they understand the dangers.
Innocent kids are being stabbed, as society is going through changes.
I know what I would rather do with my spare time.
Give me boxing any day over crime.
It teaches you discipline, respect and how to look after yourself.
It can bring you friendships, titles and even wealth.
It’s the smell of the gym and the buzz in the air.
Not many make it, as champions are rare.
So what keeps them coming to this Wonderful sport?
It’s the camaraderie of like minded people and the support.
You feel part of a team it’s hard to explain.
To truly understand you have to be a part of this game.
Yes like all sports it has its good and bad.
Most people think that you have to be mad.
But if your reading this thinking shall I have a go?
Until you enter that gym you will never know?


Big thank you for the Wimborne pro-am boxing club for bringing their girls down last night for our girls
they enjoyed every minute of it one thing we can say is we enjoy having you guys down once again thank you for a good night 🥊🥊

Good amateur senior session tonight everyone getting stuck in and working well done guys



Undefeated/great amateur records dont mean much.
If you want to be a champion forget what your mates think about your record and take as many opportunities to box as you can!!! your coach has your best interests at heart and wouldnt offer you contests if he didnt think it was good for your development.
If you want to go to the olympics or be a pro world champ then win amateur titles not the odd club show bout. To do this you must take as many club show bouts as possible to prepare for titles, wins and losses they are all about learning and will iron out the faults for when it really matters.

During a session ask questions & show interest in learning...BUT not half way through a round...because we all know your just dodging hard work.

All nights out partying are exactly the same so u really arent missing out if you dont go out for a while. This doesnt mean do not have a social life just be smart about it

Simply having a boxing coach and strength and conditioning coach doesnt make u a better boxer or stronger. following their instructions and putting 100% in to every session does.

There is no such thing as over training only under recovery so make sure you get the balance right

Turning up for sparring doesnt mean much if you never turn up for the sprints, technical work and bag sessions...everybody turns up for the fun bits.

Doing an exercise To failure means do it until you can not physically continue, not until one other person has given up

Sprint means go for it like your life depends on it. make your lungs and heart explode with the effort you are putting in...its doesnt mean push slightly harder and pull faces to let coach know your trying your best.
