TES – Teaching jobs, resources & ideas from the Times Educational Supplement: “Some say boxing is a knockout sport for promoting discipline, wellbeing and self-confidence, but it has many critics

In an age when school trips and even games of conkers are being curtailed for fear of injury, boxing, the ultimate contact sport, seems to buck the trend. In its Fifties heyday, thousands of boys boxed at school, but the practice largely died out in the Sixties. Since then, schools have baulked at the idea of legitimising violence, but an increasing number (4 per cent nationally) have found that it promotes discipline, wellbeing and self-confidence – in line with the Government’s respect and healthy schools agenda.”
