The A.I.M. Academy hosted a Boxing, Street-Boxing and Sparring Workshop on 26 August 2011, which was taught by Guest Instructor, Deane Lawler, all the way from Queensland.
The Boxing, Street-Boxing and Sparring Workshop covered Focus Pad Drills, Glove Drills, Reflex Training, and Acclimation Strategies.
This Workshop was great for anyone wanting to take their Boxing and Sparring skills to the next level, and learn how to use their Boxing skills on the street to defend themselves.
Street-Boxing is very different from Boxing for competition, and as the participants learnt – the difference could save your skin out on the street!
Deane’s direct, no-nonsense approach had everyone getting results in the shortest time possible.
His training strategies were designed to improve one’s ability to respond immediately, even in the most stressful of circumstances!
Hear what others are saying about this Boxing, Street-Boxing & Sparring Workshop:
“The Deane Lawler workshop was loads of fun. Deane was able to engage participants and create a comfortable environment to do some challenging drills. He clearly knows his stuff and it was obvious that there were years of applied theory behind his madness. His methods were smart, simple and logical.
My favourite part was definitely the boxing drills and psychology Deane used around priming yourself to instantly hit back and training yourself to feel more comfortable with confrontation. I’m so glad that Deane was willing to share his knowledge and that I had the opportunity to be involved in this workshop.
P.S. I’m so glad I found A.I.M. Academy. I didn’t see it coming, but I think I’m becoming a bit addicted to boxing! 🙂“

“Amazing experience with Deane, who is known worldwide for his street-boxing training. I learnt a lot about the mentality behind self-defence and the importance of acting rather than thinking.”
– Nick Taras
“The staff at the A.I.M. Academy were really helpful and Deane Lawler, the instructor, was absolutely great. He is an experienced, world-class, realistic self-defense practitioner with many years of experience in the security industry that can help anyone understand what it feels to be in a street fight and what you need to do to survive by employing one’s boxing skills and adapting them to that reality. Overall, a great introduction as to how to modify boxing for the altogether different context of a fight that takes place in a pub, a parking lot or the street.”
– Nash Petropoulos
“Deane’s street-boxing and sparring workshop was an excellent introduction to self-defense in everyday situations. The advice was practical, to the point and logical. Routines were simple and effective. Recomended for persons interested in self-defence.”
– Kym Huynh
“Great teacher and a great venue. It was basically about conditioning my body to react when attacked. It wasn’t an easy soft workout but something that really changed the way I look at self-defense. Recommended.”
– Marty Kemka
