A points system classifies a fighter’s disability. The points range from 1.0 to 4.5. Rating is based on the level of the fighter’s trunk movement and general mobility in the chair.

Not as yet, but a lot of people are working hard to get it included in the 2024 Paralympics. Colin Wood is one of the driving forces behind this ambition. He is the founder of the Wheeled Warriors Boxing Organisation (WWBO) which has members from eighteen different countries. He is also the organizer of the Adaptive Boxing Organization (ABO). Wood states,  “We had to look at all disabilities under the banner of inclusion, meaning everybody could have a chance to compete. We are becoming an umbrella organisation for the first time, which means we are now working together to stay under the same rules and regulations.”

Wheelchair boxing exercises.

As in any sport, effective training is essential to reach the top. The Invictus Active trainer has been used as a useful training tool in this sport. The trainer allows the boxer to build upper body muscle with regular workout programs. The variable resistance allows an athlete to increment the difficulty of his workout as his condition improves. Furthermore, the trainer allows you to push both forwards and backwards so increasing uniform muscle development. Additionally, the Invictus Active Trainer provides an excellent overall upper body and cardio workout.

In addition to using the Invictus Active Trainer as a general workout tool boxers also use it to train against a sparring partner. The trainer allows the athlete to alternate which hand he uses to propel the chair while throwing punches with the other hand in a controlled training situation. The trainer also helps to develop coordination which is essential in wheelchair boxing.
