KNOCKOUT SISTERS

As seen on The One Show, we deliver Us Girls – Knockout Sisters sessions in partnership with Street Games and EMTEP. These sessions are female-led, women only sessions to help women from the muslim community use non-contact boxing to improve fitness and coordination, as well as providing a social space for participants to make friends and gain confidence. Participants have shown improvements in both physical and mental wellbeing. In 2017, Northumbria student coach Hannah Dawson also won Street Games Young Coach of the Year for her outstanding contribution and delivery of weekly sessions in the West end of Newcastle.
