What is the Youth Boxing Programme?

Our youth boxing programme is an 8-week course that is designed to introduce tamariki aged 12-18 years to the art of boxing. Participants will learn the foundations of boxing in a safe, non-contact environment. All gear is provided, the kids just need to show up!


Why Boxing ?

Far from being something as simple as a violent activity, boxing has many benefits in developing children holistically, and these benefits extend to school and everyday life. Active children are more confident, happier and tend to perform better academically and socially.


The SXS Youth Boxing Programme will give tamariki the opportunity to build confidence, connections and character.


Through the art of boxing, tamariki will learn these core values, and gain the skills to take responsibility for their physical and mental health by engaging in future physical activity and sport for life, whether it be boxing or any other sport/activity.

"Boxing is a kind of magic. It gives discipline to the wild. Strength to the weak. Confidence to the shy."

- W. Klitschko

Morningside Programme

In just eight weeks your child will learn the art of boxing, make friends, have fun and challenge themselves mentally and physically in a brand new way.

With 2 sessions each week, along with a special guest session participants will have an opportunity to meet and learn from the one of the top combat sport athletes Aotearoa has to offer.


We assume this is a new experience for anyone signing up, and our programme is designed with this in mind.

We are inclusive to all kids, regardless of gender, race, ability or skill. Our programme is suited to everyone and can accomodate anyone, the coaches will take care of everything!


"The boxing programme is an amazing experience. It teaches you so many things you can use in life and it is a great way to make friends. It also makes fitness fun!"​

- Ava; Rutherford College 

Only $200 for 8 weeks of training

Pax (Prakishni Patel) and Jax (Jackson Keet) are our two head coaches for Sticks x Stones Youth Boxing, brought together by their mutual love for martial arts and training. Between them they have over a decade of boxing experience including competing multiple boxing events, and have run countless youth boxing programmes across West Auckland schools.

Both Pax and Jax feel strongly that boxing has been a positive impact on their life. The discipline, fun, confidence and maturity boxing has given them, made them want to give something back to the sport that they love, and have created the Youth Boxing programme to pass that on to younger people.
