Glenn Smith from the RedCorner Boxing Gym in Coventry has created a grading syllabus for his boxing students. This boxing syllabus is a first worldwide. Most notably, Karate was at the forefront in martial arts for its popular grading system.

Glenn owns the popular boxing gym and thought of the idea when parents kept inquiring about their children’s progress during the boxing classes. This was something that was sometimes difficult for Glenn and his instructors to answer as the classes were very busy so it was hard to keep an account of every single student’s progress.

Another strong influence for Glenn was the idea that a student could have been training for months or years without ever having anything to show for all their time & dedication to the sport. Now with the grading system in place, it gives all students something to work towards constantly creating a new platform for students to aim for. One the day of the grading itself, the student will walk away with a grade-appropriate T-shirt , certificate & medal.

‘We are looking to close the divide between boxing and martial arts as they are more closely linked than people realise’ Glenn Smith
There are nine boxing grades, starting from the white level & finishing with the instructor level. The grading’s start off by teaching basic boxing skills and progress onto advanced techniques.

Glenn has been teaching boxing for over fifteen years with eight of those serving as a professional coach training several amateur & professional boxing champions.
An accredited boxing coach course has also been created by Glenn and sent to Skills Active who has just approved the qualification. This course is a three day intense boxing coach course designed for anyone who wants to become qualified within the sporting industry.

‘I would also like to take this already popular grading system into schools within and nationwide. The focus being on boxing being re-introduced as a safe but effective  sport and also to act as an incentive for any students who express an interest in pursuing sport as a career option.’  Glenn Smith

These grading’s keep the members of the gym interested in boxing, which in turn keeps them all coming back. The same syllabus is used throughout the grading so that it can be taught at any location and if a coach isn’t able to attend the day for any reason, another trained instructor can conveniently stand in.

Glenn is already taking bookings to teach the boxing syllabus in various gym, schools and youth clubs. His boxing coach course is also available for anyone wanting to become a qualified accredited boxing coach.
