TEAM GB FAMILY ACTIVITY TRAILS
Withernsea Trails – Signpost 11
Team GB Activity
Practice these activities on your own!
One training method for boxers is shadow boxing, meaning you just do the boxing on your own!
Make sure you’ve got plenty of space between yourself and others, and try out these five moves.
Start by standing with one foot in front of the other with your fists up to your nose.
Jab and Cross
- For a ‘jab’, punch straight in front. If you’re stood with your right foot in front, punch with your right arm (and vice versa).
- For a ‘cross’, you want to punch across your body and twist as you punch forwards.
- If you’re stood with your right foot in front, punch with your left arm (and vice versa).
- Drop your elbow down and punch upwards until your fist is in line with your eyes.
- Do this on both sides!
- Raise your elbow up so your forearm is horizontal.
- Then curve a punch forwards as if you’re trying to ‘hook’ something!
- Imagine you are avoiding a punch this time!
- Move your head slightly forwards and to the right or left (depending on where you are imagining dodging the punch from)

Unlock your achievement badge
Did you know, hockey was first introduced to the Olympics in 1908, where Great Britain and Northern Ireland won 4 medals! England won gold, Ireland claimed silver, and Scotland and Wales were both awarded bronze medals. Now, all the countries compete together as Team GB, rather than individual nations!
