    It says they "adopted" the idea from "Griffins Boixng and Fitness", which I have never heard of.

    ...as in buttSECS?

    if thats what your current school is like then yes, go find a better one.


    i dont like rankings for a couple of reasons. first, the pecking order in a boxing gym (and any other MA school imo) should ALWAYS be defined by who whups the most ass. not who bought the shiniest handwraps. now you might say that the person who has the shiniest handwraps is going to be the most experienced anyway, but then doesnt that make it kind of pointless?

    second, it creates division. i can be training with a guy whos better and meaner and tougher than i am and i can still give him tips because we are both on the same "level" when it comes to training, even if he is higher up on the pecking order than me. when you start putting people above others then egos come into play and people who have high ranks dont wanna hear it from people who have low ranks. this is how its been at pretty much every school ive ever been to with a belt system, while my experience of those without them has always been of a more "communal" training. i dont know if the inherent awesomeness of boxing would cancel out the shitty gayness a ranking system brings with it.

    edit- just read the site, olympic rules boxing sucks. avoid

    I never said mine was that way, but the majority in this area are like that.

    Hmm I am somewhat opposed to the idea, I will rant about it to my internet girlfriend before petitioning against it on Myspace, whilst listening to Avenged Sevenfold and lamenting the dark abyss that is life.

    This program teaches the sweet science of Olympic style boxing in a developmental learning stages. Every member of the NLBA technical class starts off at the entry stage - White Glove, a stage that teaches only the fundamentals of boxing. After successful completion of the entry stage and a pass, a boxer would advance to the second stage - Yellow Glove, where they would commence learning semi-complex skills under intensified lenghtened conditions. The final stage of the NLBA Glove System is the black glove, a stage that ranks the boxers fully developed Olympic style amateur boxer.
    Now, it may have changed but, that sounds like new gloves to me.

    Once a boxer passes a stage, they change the colour of their hand wraps to match the colour of the stage they are now on.




    Sounds to me like they change handwraps, they need to post it more then once on there whole damn site though.

    In order for a boxer to advance from one stage to another, they must demonstrate to an NCCP amateur boxing coach that they understand and are able to perform all the requirements of their stage effortlessly. This is done in a test form and the boxer must get 90%. Once a boxer passes a stage, they change the colour of their hand wraps to match the colour of the stage they are now on. They might have to switch class times.
    Its wraps.

    You dont actually go out and buy new gloves in Savate when you gain rank, most of the time you wear a patch or armband. I'm sure some idiots DO buy gloves, but in the gym I trained in in France, and most of the schools I've visited, we dident
