School of Hard Knocks uses sport to tackle unemployment, crime and poor health. We help people take responsibility and take positive steps forward in their lives. We offer a range of programmes, all with our unique methodology – controlled confrontation, challenging activities and a constant affirmation of self-worth.

We run courses throughout the UK, changing the lives of children and adults using rugby, boxing and strongman courses, supported by a curriculum of powerful life lessons. We work with unemployed adults to find and sustain employment; and with school children at risk of exclusion to help them reengage with education.
