Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. When im in basic training can i do boxing and also after basic can you still box for a your regiment ?
  2. In basic doubtful. If you know your boxing your should know the answer to the second part
  3. feel free to shoot me down in flames if this statement seems too 'out there' but i find it inconceivable that you would have either the time nor the energy to take up boxing during basic
  4. I dont think you can box in training although in phase 2 you may have a club, i boxed during my army apprenticeship but thats a little different as it was like Ph1 & 2 combined.

    You will defintely be able to box at your unit however how seriously they promote it will depend on what unit your with. What are u joining??

    Paras, Green Howards & Dukes had pretty serious boxing teams when i was in the army. GH & DWR are now part of the Yorks i believe.

    Someone more up to date will prob be able to help you more.
