Due to today’s update (Friday 20th March 2020) and legal restrictions that have been told to us on the news & social media by Prime Minister Scott Morrison, we must abide by the new rules and temporarily shut down the Boxing Academy.

PM said “We agreed to further rules today regarding indoor, non-essential gatherings. What we are now moving to is an arrangement for gatherings of less than 100, is that they would be four square metres provided per person in an enclosed space, in a room. So that’s 2m by 2m.”


Stay safe, sane and well during this virus pandemic. We will keep you updated if there are any changes.

Ashley has been teaching people for over 40 years. The Academy will reopen when the Govt allows.

Thank you for all your support.

Looking for a different venue

For many years Ashley has said that he would love to create an Academy that encompassed a few fight disciplines along with some of his ex-Boxers that went on to other sports and became Trainers in those disciplines.

Ashley told Louise of his dream and she expanded it to include a Rehabilitation Centre for Brain Injuries, Sports Injuries and Veterans with the potential for 50-100 Staff on the Atherton Tablelands.

Helping people is something that both Ashley and Louise are passionate about.  Through life they both have experienced Traumatic Brain Injuries and Sporting Injuries.  Louise is currently a Peer Leader for her local brain injury group STEPS Program, which is part of Qld Health’s Acquired Brain Injury Outreach Service (ABIOS).

As we progress with our usual training for Competition Boxers and general fitness for everyone; we hope to start fundraising towards buying land and building a suitable place for our training.  If you or someone you know would like to help us achieve this dream, please contact Ashley or Louise on 0444 550 072.
