What is Southpaw?


Rebellious, Strong, Fun.

Southpaw is Kuwait’s premiere aqua bag boxing gym. Located in Industrial Shuwaikh, Southpaw strikes a balance between global fitness trends and local demand for fun, intense and effective workouts.

“Southpaw” essentially means “unusual” in the fitness world; the term having originated from lefthanded pitchers in baseball. In boxing, “southpaw” is the stance of a lefthanded boxer.

In the southpaw stance, the right arm and foot are forward, making jabs, whilst the left arm and foot are behind, ready to make a hook. Righthanded boxers such as Mohammad Ali also take the southpaw stance strategically to surprise their opponents.

Given that Southpaw has a rebellious attitude, we designed our logo to reflect the Southpaw stance, drawing x’s where a leftie boxer’s hands and feet are placed.
