Boxing and martial arts combined with personal development.
Open Access offers young people training in boxing and martial arts, from beginner level through to elite competition, irrespective of their ability or ambition. Whether just interested in staying in shape or focused on competing, all are welcome.
Participants also attend personal development sessions to equip themselves with valuable life and social skills. Community based competitions are held regularly to encourage young people to join and teams compete at regional and national levels.
By joining Open Access, participants are exposed to and encouraged to access Fight for Peace’s other needs based projects that comprise the Five Pillars programme.
