The Australian Academy of Boxing trademark Boxercise is the direct
and often used derivative of the registered trademark Boxacise®.
In 1987 the idea was formed to create a facility that would provide
boxing and boxing orientated exercise for general public
participation. The Australian Academy of Boxing came into being on
the 24th January 1990 and an exercise concept that focused on reflex
co-ordination, power projection and fitness through the utilisation
of specialised exercises and equipment instead of boxing
self-defence was given the separate distinctive name of 'Boxacise'
an amalgamation of the words 'boxing and exercise'.
Boxacise encompasses the Boxercise derivative with the spelling
variance making no difference to the Boxacise registered trademark's
parameter. The Academy licenses fitness facilities and coaches
throughout Australia to provide and teach this service but has been
inevitably required over the years to take many trademark pirate
organisations within the Fitness and Martial Arts industries to the
Federal Court of Australia for illegally trying to dupe the public
with unlicensed offerings.
The Australian general public needs to be safeguarded against
unlicensed organisations using Boxacise, Boxercise, Kick Boxercise
or other derivatives to falsely promote their commercial services
and with regard to public safety and awareness the Academy decided
in 2006 to publicise the names of nine organisations that had been
issued trademark infringement notices because:
Each organisations name was only removed from the
infringement list when it either became licensed, ceased any further
visual-oral infringement, or Australian Federal Court proceedings
had been concluded.
- (a) the organisation had not, or was not registered
with the Australian Academy of Boxing to provide the
- (b) the organisation failed to immediately cease
infringing the trademark and continued to advertise a false
and illegal service.
- (c) The Australian Academy of Boxing had
authorised its lawyers to initiate Federal Court legal

- The 9 unlicenced fitness and martial arts centres using
the Boxacise trademark derivatives Boxercise or Kick Boxercise
taken by the Australian Academy of Boxing before the
Federal Court all lost.
The Academy provides a Nationwide Network of Boxacise licenced
Centres, along with Coaching Workshops, Courses, and Competition
Events. Check if your exercise facility is licensed with the
Australian Academy of Boxing and uses qualified coaches to safely
provide the Boxacise-Boxercise service. If your centre is not
licensed to provide Boxacise-Boxercise send the Academy a session
timetable plus attendance cost and we will contact them. Remember
that an unqualified coach can be a dangerous coach and you should
immediately seek a full refund of your facility membership.
