Kate Waters of RABC teamed up with Freelancers Make Theatre Work to provide boxing sessions for Artists suffering due the pandemic. COVID19 has disproportionately affected the theatre community creating the inability to work, loss of income and a lack of social interaction. Our sessions were totally FREE and brought the community together again to get their sweat on and learn the sweet science of boxing. Coach Kate (aka Kombat Kate) a Fight Director for stage and screen, volunteered her time to take the sessions, and we are currently seeking funding to continue the project in the gym once lockdown is lifted.
‘I can’t remember the last time I smiled so much whilst pouring with sweat. I
ache all over in the best way possible. I’ve not had so much fun exercising
since I was a kid. I feel so strong and empowered. I can’t wait to join in again’
