History of Jab Boxing Fitness Club
Jab Boxing Fitness Club is built upon a legacy of boxing.
The co-founder of Jab Boxing Fitness Club, Brett Taylor, is a former South African Welterweight Boxing Champion. His father before him, Bernie Taylor, was also a former South African boxing champion.
During this time, Due to the popularity of the boxing training from the Taylor garage, more space was needed to accommodate more people joining and they started running a boxing club from a church hall in Weltevreden. Soon Brett, Byron, Grant, Kurt and Meagan decided to take the boxing club to the next level.
Brett’s son; Byron Taylor grew up with a passion for boxing and asked Brett to train him and some friends from his garage at home. So Brett Taylor, Byron Taylor and Brett’s brother: Wayne Taylor started training people from their garage in 2000.
Kurt Pacak, Grant Pacak and Meagan Buys started boxing training and they developed their own passion and skills for boxing over the years and joined up with Byron to establish a formal club, they called that club: Jab & Boxing Fitness Club and continued to do boxing training from a studio at Hillcrest Shopping Centre in 2012.
In late 2014 due to their love for the club, boxing training and history of solid competitive fighting: Shane Duvenage, Shanna and Grant Sutherland proposed the purchase and transfer of the club them.
All happily agreed that the move was for the best and in the best hands, so we then upgrade to a safer, more ‘top-notch’ facility with more parking, equipment and great energy! Come join us at 11 Fountaingate centre, 84 Maria street, Fontainebleau and see the injection of energy, love and passion for the sport we’ve created!
