PE department incorporates new boxing techniques

PE department staff participated in an hour-long boxing instruction on Dec. 5, led by SCW-certified instructor and GBN teacher Matt Fastert. 

"The hope is that the department can incorporate these techniques into a fitness or self-defense lesson for some of their classes they teach," Fastert said.

Some classes that could incorporate boxing include strength training and physical management, he said.

The lesson included the basics, such as jab, cross, front hook and rear hook, as well as boxing stance, shadow boxing, partner boxing with mitts and various one- to two-minute combinations. 

"It was a lot of fun to teach fellow teachers and see how excited they were to learn these new skills," Fastert said.
