The boxing classes are led by local boxer Josh Wisher who runs the Ministry of Boxing Gym, are held each Thursday at Armley Leisure Centre between 3.45pm and 4.45pm.
The sessions are open to eight to 16 year olds, either by dropping in or booked in advance at the leisure centre. They are free to attend with light refreshments provided.
They began following conversations between the Active Leeds Team, and other local partners from Leeds City Council and West Yorkshire Police which identified a need to tackle anti-social behaviour locally. Officers have worked to build trust within the local community, identify the type of activities which young people are interested in and how they can provide support.
The suggestion of boxing sessions was identified, and the Active Leeds team who had connections with boxers Josh Warrington and Josh Wisher, opened up a conversation with the Ministry of Boxing.
