Bianca working with MBC girls in December 2013.

This is going to be a great weekend that should really get people into gear for 2014. If you are keen to make your debut sometime this year, or if you have already got a number of fights under your belt and want to really push forward with your skills, then this is a great clinic and a unique opportunity rarely seen in Australia. Even those preparing for the Boxing Australia national championships this year in Perth should consider getting a head start.

Bianca will be coming straight from Russia after having competed in Sweden this week, hopefully with a medal around her neck, after she contests the Golden Girl Championships. She will have spent two weeks in camp in Russia preparing with the Russian 54kgs world champion Aleksandra ‘Shasha’ Kuleshova.

She’s certainly going to have some tricks up her sleeve, some information about the international scene and some drills and training ideas to share with everyone. And she will be pumped about the pending national championships which will also be the Commonwealth Games qualifying event.

As well as Bianca’s recent experience we have some other exciting ideas planned. Paul Oliver will be filming all the sparring and we’ll spend time watching videos and critiquing our work so we can see what we are doing wrong and what is working for us. I am also working on having a Sports Dietician speak about training and making weight and how to do both without compromising strength and energy and without getting sick. We’ll also be showing you the three women’s Gold Medal Olympic bouts from London 2012 and hearing from Boxing Victoria about the rules and the new amateur boxing scoring system.

For anyone who wants to have their own coach on side during the sparring, they are more than welcome to attend free of charge. But we will have plenty of people on hand to help out and work your corner if they can’t make it. Coach Gary Hamilton from Canberra, who also happens to be Bianca’s coach, will be helping run the clinic along with myself and Boxing Central’s Sam Visciglio.

Both coaches have worked extensively with female boxers for many years. Garry has run similar clinics out of the AIS in Canberra, one of which I attended and will be bringing the Schuster sisters, Nina and Maddy to join us. Nina┬ámedalled last year at the youth women’s world championships in Bulgaria. And Sam, well known to and loved by everyone at Boxing Central, was my coach when I fought in Australia and has always been a great supporter of female boxers having trained many others before and after me.
