Mittmaster Boxing Syllabus

Mittmaster Boxing Syllabus

The ability to strike with speed, accuracy, and power is the foundation of all striking arts and boxers are the best punchers on the planet. Boxing is based on one fundamental principle:

“To hit and not be hit”

This syllabus is designed to help anyone who teaches boxing at any level. If you are a coach it will help you structure your classes and formalise a grading syllabus if you feel your students would benefit from one. 

Typically there are no gradings in boxing, you either fight or you don’t. However just because there has never been a syllabus for boxing doesn’t mean that there shouldn’t be one. 

I believe a well-structured syllabus helps students of all fighting arts learn in a more structured, logical manner. It also allows a coach to assess different boxers against a set standard.

Boxing has also recently opened up to students who only want to get fit through boxing and don’t have any desire to compete. For this type of client, a syllabus provides short-term goals that help motivate and inspire.

Even if you never use the syllabus to grade your boxers it will provide a different perspective on how to teach boxing and will enhance your creativity as a coach.

The Mittmaster Boxing Syllabus is based around three levels club, amateur & pro. Each level contains three grades.

Level 1: Club Boxer (Grades 1-3)

This level focuses on the basics of boxing starting with stance, footwork, mechanics and the execution of the four basic punches and defences.

Level 2: Amateur Boxer (Grades 4-6)

This level focuses on intermediate boxing skills that are required in order for a boxer to begin competing. This includes integrating footwork & head movement, slipping and countering effectively. At this level, we also look at developing a basic understanding of ringcraft.

Level 3: Professional Boxer (Grades 7-9)

This level focuses on the skills & drills used by professional boxers. This includes advanced combinations, fakes & feints, set ups, clinch work, dirty boxing tricks, punch variations and strategies to deal with different types of opponent.

(this obviously doesn’t mean that a student at this level is a professional boxer, they need to fight and win to be that).

Boxing Syllabus Review by Rick Dubidat

"I run 3 full-time martial arts schools across the West Midlands with a team of 8 instructors graded in different arts. 

We had always taught boxing as part of our classes and found it a valuable addition to the development of the other arts that we teach such as Kickboxing, Karate, and Muay Thai. 

However, the one thing that we didn't have was structure and a way of measuring student progress.

I've known Matt for years so when he decided to release his boxing curriculum I knew that it would be world class and well thought out. 

I purchased it and put it to work across our academies immediately. 

It gave the instructors a structure to provide consistency of coaching across our group and also allowed our students to test for levels which increased enthusiasm for the class along with adding another revenue stream for the business. 

The supporting material that comes with the curriculum is amazing. It's very easy to understand and implement. 

The syllabus has the perfect progression of difficulty for both instructors and students alike. 

Thank you, Matt, for developing such a world-class product"
