Boxing Session with the University Royal Naval Unit URNUYoung People

Boxing Session with the University Royal Naval Unit URNU

On Sunday, we had a great Boxing Session with the University Royal Naval Unit URNU – Cardiff and Bristol.  It was a pleasure to host this group, who were extremely polite, well behaved and awesome.

The University Royal Naval Units (URNU), under the command of Britannia Royal Naval College, give university students a broader understanding of Royal Navy life. They offer the chance to gain transferable skills, from public speaking to organisation, by exposing the young person to leadership and management opportunities.

During their visit to South Wales, they visited the Green Mile Training Camp on the Saturday and ourselves on the Sunday, for a Boxing Session organised and ran by Lt Smith and CPO Harris.  Some great skills were spotted – including the girls – and some real potential and promise was found!  Sounds like a great weekend of Sport and Activity.

In addition to an inspiring talk on their fighting careers, the UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture treated the Young People to some drills on the mats, and they got to partner up with MMA and BJJ Legend Kenny Florian for a session in the gym.
