Community Outreach and Testimonials

Cuban Boxing Academy has been changing lives in West London since we were established in 2013. We use non-contact boxing to help young people stay in education and work towards fulfilling their ambitions. Our programme has been used to help young people who are “Not in Education, Employment or Training” (NEET) and use boxing principles to give them discipline and structure in their lives.


Our Commitment

Based on Cuba’s successful Olympic Boxing programme (achieved as part of the Cuban schooling system) we have been mentoring and coaching non-contact boxing in schools, Pupil Referral Units (PRU’s) and Youth Organisations for the past four years. As well as delivering physical training, we have improved students’ self-confidence, encouraged interaction and inspired a positive outlook on their future. We teach girls and boys of all ages, backgrounds and abilities in a fun, safe environment. Our coaches are fully qualified, DBS checked and often work with “hard-to-reach” students, many of whom are involved in anti-social behaviour.

We believe that every child matters and our holistic approach include working with a student’s family and teachers where necessary.

Other benefits of our programme can include:

  • Improved attendance

  • Better performance in other subjects

  • Appreciating further education

  • Awareness of the human body and nutrition

  • Reduced risk of obesity and linked diseases

  • Recognising future career opportunities

Maciej Zamojski, graphic designer

Training with Ed is actually the highlight of my week. Not only am I seeing improvements in my physical body but I always walk out feeling like a boss! Ed has customised my programme to meet my goals and has inspired me to get into boxing which I highly recommend!

Chiara, UK national team Gymnast

I’ve been training with Ed for just over a year now and it has been a truly incredible experience on not just a boxing side but a physical side too as he has taught me from scratch how to box while putting me through my paces and can feel myself improving after every session. Nutritionally he has guided me to change up my diet for the better to help me achieve my goals. I have so much to thank Ed for and we are only just getting started.
