The Academy of
Central Bedfordshire

Boxing at ACB

Year 11 are currently learning the fundamentals of Boxing and have visited Samsons Academy in Bedford. Sidney Thompson the Head coach and professional trainer from East Area Boxing Academy has been teaching the young people a range of skills including fitness, pad and bag work and punch combinations.

The students have had been fortunate enough to meet some of his professional boxers, Micky Mills and Julian Wilson. Sidney and Micky have attended the school for some of the PE lessons to provide high quality coaching from their years of experience both performing in and out of the ring. It has been a pleasure to work collaboratively with them both, inspiring students to participate in the sport and continue being physically active beyond school.

We hope to continue this working relationship to create further opportunities for our students.
