NAHKkinnas Home Boxing About us Training Gallery Contact
Boxing in Valga has started its history in 1989. The first coach was Mikhail Shirokov. In  the beginning, trainings were held in the Pioneer House (today's Central Library Valga),  but soon moved to Valga Russian Gymnasium, which had much more suitable conditions.  Car tires filled with water were used as boxinf sacks and gum shields were ordered from  the dental professionals. Major enthusiasts were Russian young people, but there were  also the Estonians. Good results showed Kitškerkin, Kvartsov, Budkevitš, brothers Lee and  Unts. From 1996 there was a break in boxing in Valga, but in 2004 Zori Nevetšerija has begun to  train young people. Nahkkinnas club was formed and became a member of the Estonian  Boxing Union. The club has now a licensed trainer and the judges, which allows the club to  actively participate in various competitions as well as to organize them. Club activities are  funded by the city of Valga and  SA Valga Sport allows to use its rooms for the training  sessions. Around 20 youths are actively taking part in the training sessions. Rajevski,  Molodkin, Haukanõmm ja Kurg have already achieved good places in the competitions.  The club goals are:  - To unite people who are interested in boxing  - To promote healthy and competitive sport  - Contribution to the necessary conditions for the healthy and competitive sport  - Aiding of judges and coaches / instructors for training and self-improvement   - Leisure time spending for better health  - To increase mental and physical development
