In 2015, FWI registered as an Amateur Boxing Gym, under the Johannesburg Amateur Boxing Organisation (JABO), which in turn operates under the Gauteng and South African National Amateur Boxing Organisations. Olympic style amateur boxing is taught at FWI, through two programmes: the #FitClub and the #FightClub. The #FitClub is FWI’s open access programme, which runs 3 times per week for all beginner boxers, and boxers who choose not to compete. The #FightClub includes the competitive amateur boxing squad, which also runs 3 times per week. In order for participants to be accepted into the squad athletes are required to complete a fitness test and an amateur boxing grading assessment. The squad members earn their place to participate in tournaments through regular fitness assessments. All squad members are provided with any support needed to ensure their participation.
All children are welcome to participate in FWI’s open access programme, and find out about the gym by word of mouth, through existing members. In order to be selected for the competitive squad, participants need to complete an internal grading and fitness test, after which they will be allowed to attend an official grading. Once graded, the participants receive an amateur boxing record book and earn their place to compete in each tournament through regular fitness tests.
Not only has FWI’s open access gym greatly promoted young people’s access to participation in amateur boxing, it has also contributed towards the sustainability of the Johannesburg and Gauteng Amateur Boxing Organisation. As an amateur boxing club, FWI currently has one of the largest amateur boxing squads in South Africa, with 55 active boxers. Due to the socio- economic circumstances that limit access through a lack of training and competition boxing kits, annual medical and registration costs, transport and tournament entry fees, these boxers would not have been able to participate competitively. In making provisions for these needs, children’s participation is supported, allowing for a larger pool of competitors at the club, district, provincial and national tournaments. There are further opportunities, and support for all of our amateur boxers to turn professional.
In addition, a number of young people graduating through FWI have had the opportunity to register for Amateur Boxing coaching qualifications, and are supported through the learnership and final qualification process. At present, FWI’s newly appointed Head Boxing Coach is a young person who started as a beneficiary of the programme. He was also selected as assistant coach for the National School Boys’ team in 2018. He is currently training the new learner coach, who was also previously a beneficiary of the programme. It is envisioned that young people like these will promote the sustainability of FWI and amateur boxing in Johannesburg and Gauteng.
Fight with Insight amateur boxers participate regularly in club tournaments, district, provincial, national and international tournaments. FWI have boxers who have won on all 4 boxing stages, forming a part of the Johannesburg team members who have won provincial, national and international amateur titles, representing their region, province and country at the highest level.
Within these arenas, they are also placed in a specific league in anticipation of a place at the Commonwealth Games with a dream of Olympic Gold.
