Disability Sport Wales – This organization has two programs called Active 8-16 and Boxercise for the disabled who wanted to try their hand at boxing. They encourage people who have disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy, as well as other conditions like ADHD, depression, OCD, etc to excel in the field of boxing. They follow four simple steps to train the students by creating space for them to box easily and give them the required task to compete, the equipment to fight, and finally the people involved who can give any extra attention required. If you have a disabled kid at home who might be interested, don’t hesitate to get involved.
