About Double Jab Boxing Club
Double Jab Boxing Club, in the heart of New Cross has been changing lives. Our coaching goes beyond boxing and teaches discipline, respect and commitment to all our members, giving them the moral foundations to tackle all that life will throw their way.
Double Jab has proved to be a powerful force for change in the community. Our diverse membership promotes integration while our female coaches and boxers demonstrate our all inclusive approach to the sport. We welcome all ages and abilities, with the promise of equal opportunity and support..
With recent visits from former World Champion David Haye and His Royal Highness Prince Harry we are quickly becoming one of the most popular boxing clubs in London. Our growing number of competitive boxers and proud list of Champions and finalists show that our venture here has been a success. While our doors have only been open for five years, we have over 900 members and have secured 9 medals and 1 national title at Championships. In this short time we have proved ourselves to be a sanctuary for those most vulnerable to gang violence with our motto 'Jab don't stab' as well as a respectable breeding ground of Champions. We have given many people in the local community and beyond the opportunity to work hard and be rewarded for it. The sense of achievement felt by our boxers has given many of our members purpose and direction in an otherwise distracting world. We are, and always will be far more than a boxing club.
In short, we are a boxing club that aims to use the sport as a pathway to community cohesion or basically we take youths from the local community that are at risk and teach them discipline and respect using boxing to do so. At the same time we show that hard work pays off.
