children should be allowed to box in school.
Debate Rounds (3)
If they don't want to then they could just say.
Now to my statement.
I will be arguing the con side.
Children in school should not be allowed to box due to the potential damage that could be done while doing so and complaints from parents.
I feel it is wrong to allow them to play rugby which you sprint at other people and slam into them but ban boxing.
you can get hurt much more in rugby with broken bones and being trodden on by studded boots and people see that as fine
but with boxing if you control the power of your punch and where proper protection it should be reasonably safe.
I understand that there is a degree of risk in every sport.
You make a good point when you say that rugby is more dangerous: However, that is a statement that could very easily have bias behind as would me saying that boxing is more dangerous because i take part in it.
"if you control the power of your punch" I like the point your trying to make when you say this but very few professionals can control their punch power let alone a bunch of school students who are new to the sport.
And i too understand the risk factor in every sport.
Maybe it should not be in a gym class but after school classes should be allowed. I think it should be an option as most schools where i am have banned it.

Reasons for voting decision: Con argued better, offered a little more thought in his rounds than pro. Both didn't write much, so it's hard to pin point a clear winner, although again, it seemed con gave some good arguments.
