About Punch Equipment

The History of Punch Equipment®


This year, in the heart of Coogee Beach, Khru Bruce Townhill established a Full-Time extremely hardcore Muay Thai and Boxing Gym. Within the gym was a pro shop. Membership swelled to 100 plus, with guys and girls from all over the area flocking to train!


The gym was named "Black Belt Pro" due to Khru Bruce Townhill making the decision to professionally train the many established black belts in the Art of Muay Thai due to their lacking defense abilities.


With membership's overflowing, the gym required more space. Thus, Black Belt Pro Muay Thai Gym Moved to 5000 sq ft current location in Randwick. Sydney Australia.


The Pro Shop attached to the gym became a discount retail force in Sydney named "PUNCH FACTORY OUTLET" after the punch brand name AAA GRADE PUNCH EQUIPMENT®. The business grew, and thus became a major seller above other fight brands carried out in retail stores.


The First Australian-Owned professional pad course was devised and certified. Membership for Punchfit® boxing, kickboxing and muay thai quickly grew. With classes operating each week, there was constant research conducted thus a development strategy for improving the equipment was applied.


Bruce Townhill (chief instructor) was awarded a Khru Certificate by the authentic Muay Thai Association Bangkok.

. In this year also, the infamous slogan was born. “Tested on Humans®was invented and incorporated into the Gym and Equipment due to the large fighter base testing the Punch gear on a daily basis.


Membership base grew to unprecedented numbers due to The Blackbelt Pro Licence system and professional padwork techniques allowing many instructors to present a quality controlled, safe and effective training system for men women and children.


Major re-fit of gym as Blackbelt Pro P/L becomes the official test centre for Punch Equipment® which is now exporting the AAA Punch product around the world.


With 35 belted champions from approx 200 ring fighters Blackbelt Pro Gym produces its first undefeated Super heavy weight World Champion.
