About Project

Every week, on Friday and Saturday, the Baraka youths gather on Ladbroke Grove for their boxing classes. Since Baraka started the classes in Summer 2018, their popularity has grown. The youths’ boxing coach, Mohammed Senhaji (Mo), explains why.

‘In terms of boxing, we teach them combination skills, footwork, pad work. We give them confidence by praising them and engaging with them. We get them to partner up, so they bond with each other.

‘They do boxing, they do weights, but they also get the chance to play games and chill out together’.

This communal aspect to the sessions has been the key to their success, says Mo, who has seen the Baraka classes attract young men from British Somali, British Moroccan and other backgrounds. The classes are open to all.
