My gym is not licensed and I'm tired of waiting and depending on gyms to get me licensed to box.
Anyone in the UK have any suggestions?
My current gym are still applying but there are legal difficulties and local disputes in the area. I just want to fight.

I'm ready to fight and have been boxing for quite a long time. Im 21 years old.

Join an ABA gym. Thats a given!

Are your coaches ABA qualified?

You will also need to pay a subscription to the ABA so you can be carded.

its 10 miles away and I dont have a car (being a student im pretty broke), its a lot of money for the bus.
Is it absolutely necessary to join an ABA gym? Seems ridiculous

You done a medical yet?

Nope
I assume you just go to a doctor to give you a diagnosis on whether you are able to fight or not?

Yeah, jogging 20 miles, carrying a bag full of gym equipment, I hope you aren't serious.

Yes, it's for insurance and your own safety mate. If you want to compete you have to be registered with an ABA gym.

being a half decent boxer these days is hard enough pal without having to bike or run 10 miles, that would be more pressure on your motivation levels. It is hard to motivate yourself at the best of times when you know your not exactly gonna be the next Joe Calzaghe!

But he has to jog back as well, so it's 20 miles.
