AIBA boxing: AIBA Academies: Revolution in Grassroots Development


Artist impression of the Almaty Academy

The International Boxing Association, the governing body of the sport of boxing, is fully committed to developing a massive grassroots foundation to sustain a continuous production of high-level boxers and enhance the global image and reputation of the sport.

The most exciting aspect of this project will be the roles played by the AIBA Academies, with plans for a total of six based around the world. AIBA National Federation boxers and coaches will use these Academies, which will give them access to state of the art training facilities as well as to the top coaches. The main Academy is currently being built near Almaty, Kazakhstan, and will usher in a new dawn for boxing; a real revolution is now under way.

"These are really exciting times for the future of boxing. We are doing the right thing for our young generation to compete in boxing with some long and bright hopes and dreams", stated Dr Ching-Kuo Wu, AIBA President.

The Kazakhstan Boxing Federation has been entrusted with the build of the first Academy and with the country already recognised as one of the centres for the world's greatest architectural building projects, that includes the Pyramid of Peace and the Central Concert Hall, there is complete faith from AIBA that the delivery of this project will exceed expectations.

The Academy will be a specialised centre of excellence for National Federations that are affiliated to AIBA. The aim will be to provide the most modern training facilities and programs, not only for the development of athletes but also for a wide range of experts, coaches, judges, doctors, sports managers and administrators. This sports complex will be one of the main foundations for the further development and promotion of boxing. Classrooms as well as state-of-the-art gyms and boxing halls, equipped and staffed with the most modern equipment, will be key to future champions.

Kazakhstan was keen to take in this ground-breaking project, as Bekzhan Bektenov, Head of Staff at the KBF, stressed "These Academies will provide an impetus for further development not only of boxing worldwide, but also of boxing in Kazakhstan. We have many outstanding athletes but this initiative will create a much better system to expand and accelerate the production of top talent".

It was in February 2011 that the agreement between AIBA and the Kazakhstan Boxing Federation was signed, with the plans unveiled in August to the AIBA Executive Committee, following the hugely successful AIBA World Junior Boxing Championships that were held in Astana.

The Academy will have as backdrop the picturesque foothills of the Alatau, and will be situated right on the edge of the protected ecological green zone. A perfect location for those essential morning jogs.

The construction began in October 2011, with the scheduled completion date in May 2013. The grand opening will then take place in September 2013, before the AIBA World Boxing Championships are held in Astana.

The architectural ensemble of the International Boxing Academy includes a sport complex for trainings and competitions equipped with 2 Olympic and 8 training rings, a 25-meter swimming pool, an administrative building, a hotel with 168 beds, a restaurant that caters for 104 at a time, a cafe, a dining room with 180 seats, a football field with a running track, and an underground parking designed with 21 available spaces. The Academy will cover an area of 20000m2. It will be the perfect setting to make the best talent on earth fulfil their potential and become World Champions.

"We have reached 10% of completion which means we are right on schedule. We are extremely excited about this venture and cannot wait for the grand opening, this is a new era for boxing", concluded Bekzhan Bektenov.

USA: Esoteric French Kickboxing style of Savate

Our kids learn the most cutting-edge techniques and training methods for real world self protection. The AMMA curriculum is designed around Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do Concepts (all of our instructors are certified JKD Instructors). JKD isn't a single Martial Art, but a way of training many different methods, and discovering the best ways for each individual student to protect himself or herself. AMMA students learn boxing, kickboxing, trapping, clinch (standing wrestling), ground grappling, and much more! From the esoteric French Kickboxing style of Savate to the Battle-tested weapons methods of Filipino Kali, Arnis, and Escrima; and from the cage-proven grappling of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to the gentle tumbling methods of Aikido, Judo, Gymnastics, and Parkour; our students receive the best hands-on training in a broad spectrum of skills. Chris Wright-Martell has been teaching young people since he himself was one. He began his Martial Arts journey with a year of Judo at 6 years old. At age 8, he began training Kenpo Karate at the Middletown Kenpo Karate Studio, where he found his home for nearly 20 years. At 11 years old, he was accepted into an experimental program to train Assistant Instructors. He reached the rank of Black Belt at 16, while teaching nearly 20 hours each week under the direct guidance of his Head Instructor, Professor Lee Lowery, who also encouraged him to find and pursue his own personal specialty within the Martial Arts. Chris has followed that directive and has pursued the most effective, hands-on training methods for real-world self-defense. He has trained in over 20 Martial Arts styles, from the ultra-traditional to modern and nontraditional methods, and he continues to explore new directions, on a quest to always improve the value and benefit to his students. Chris holds a 4th degree Black Belt in Kenpo Karate, a Lakan rank (Black Belt) in Modern Arnis under the late founder and Grandmaster Remy Presas, a Brown Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Mr. Roy Harris, a Black Belt in Budoshin Ju-jitsu under Professor George Kirby, and a Green Glove in Boxe Francaise Savate (French Kickboxing). Additionally, he is a Level 2 Jeet Kune Do instructor, a Level 1 Filipino Martial Arts Instructor, an Associate Level Grappling Instructor, and has also completed Instructor Training in Krav Maga under Master Rhon Mizrachi. Education is a major point of focus in Chris’ life. He completed his Bachelor’s degree (cum laude) in only 3 and a half years. He attended the University of Massachusetts at Amherst on an Acorn (merit) Scholarship, where he participated in the Honors Program while studying in two of their top departments: Japanese Language & Literature (his eventual minor), and Philosophy (with concentrations in Ethics, Epistemology, and Metaphysics). He was honored to participate in the invitation-only “Dean’s Breakfast” program, in which a small group of students met regularly with the Dean of the College of Humanities & Fine Arts, to discuss University Issues. He was a competitor on both the Fencing team and the Ballroom Dance Team, where he was vice-president and one of the University’s first male Open Level Latin Dancers. In the field of education, Chris taught for 3 years as a Middle School Math teacher at the Independent Day School in Middlefield, CT. He also served for 2 years as the Director of Summer programs at their widely renowned "Summer at IDS" Summer Camp, where he designed, coordinated, and implemented courses in Arts, Academics, and Athletics. As the Head Instructor of the Modern Self-Defense Center, Chris has taught hundreds and thousands of individuals to improve their personal safety. In addition to his own students, he has worked with numerous public, private, corporate, government, and university-based groups to help their members become safer and better able to protect themselves. He designed and taught a Self-Defense Course for Wesleyan University’s Athletics Department for several years, as their only non-faculty instructor. In 2011, Chris was a featured guest instructor at the New England Modern Arnis Camp. He is also the author of the book “Knack Self-Defense for Women: Strategies, Moves, & Everyday Tactics to Gain Confidence & Stay Safe”, which is available at bookstores everywhere.

HUNGARY: New hope for university savate

HUSF President Prof. Dr. Ádám KISS

HUSF General Secretary Dr. Mózes SZÉKELY

BUDAPEST - New acts on education and on sport have been implemented by the Parliament in Hungary. According mainly to these acts, the National Olympic Committee (NOC), solely responsible for distributing government funds became the leadinginstitute of Hungarian sport from 2012.
Therefore NOC is the body that has the rights and means to control and support the sport-life of the country. As a consequence, all sport related national organizations had to clarify their relation to this body and call its respective general assembly to modify their statues accordingly.The Hungarian University Sports Federation (HUSF) also held its general assembly in February and besides modifying its statue a new leadership was also elected by the delegates.Mr. Attila Czene, State-Secretary for Sport (former Olympic Champion swimmer) and Mr. Erik Banki, Chairman of the Parliament’s Commission for Sport and Tourism also attended the meeting. They both addressed the participants, introducing the Government’s new approach and plans to strengthen and widen the base of university sport. Mr. Czene said that in the new structure HUSF would bear the sole responsibility to represent the interests of university and high-school sports. “The organization has to control the cooperation between the smaller institutes being responsible for mass sport events of universities and high-schools. It has to prepare a new scholarship and career-building program for athletes and naturally the Federation will be responsible for handling the participation of our athletes in international events.”Mr. Erik Banki emphasized that as far as sport is concerned the Government passed all decision-making responsibilities to its self-governed partners. The Chairman added that universities have to offer better and better facilities for their students whose choice could be effected by the sport facilities and opportunities in the respective institutes. “The Government will also make its contribution as we decided to end the Tuske Hall-saga after twenty years by finishing the hall’s construction and within a short period of time this multifunctional venue will be available exclusively for the university students” Mr. Banki said. (The so-called Tuske Hall was planned to be ready by 1994. Since then it stands semi-finished in the neighborhood of two of the biggest Budapestbased universities.)
The Chairman also said that HUSF would have to come up with a development program for the span of the next ten years and if its targets meet the demands the Government would secure multiplied amount of funds to lift university sports to a much higher standard.

The modified statue of HUSF received a unanimous vote from the delegates who also elected a new leadership for a four-year term. The President of HUSF is Prof. Dr. Adam Kiss, the new Vice-Presidents are: Tamas Skultety and dr. Tamas Freyer. Members of the Executive Board: dr. Antal Kovacs (Olympic Champion in judo), dr. Pongrac Acs, dr. Laszlo Kiss, Gabor Maszlaver and Gabor Simon (the latter two are representatives of The National Union of Students in Hungary). The general assembly accepted a resolution submitted by the Chairman of the meeting in which the delegates expressed their thanks to the retired Board and to the General Secretary for their fair and correct activity. ― The new General Secretary of HUFS, dr. Mozes Szekely was supported unanimously by the leadership and was appointed by Chairman Prof. Kiss.
HUSF became a member-organization of the National Olympic Committee.

Prof. Dr. Miklos Toth, Dean of the Semmelweis University was elected Chairman of the Commission for Students and University Sports within the NOC. Mr. Toth was elected Vice-President of the NOC by its general assembly.
