The future of boxing

Boxer training with boxing technology to make fit for the future

The challenge

Improving boxing with technology

The world of boxing is less transparent than any other sport. Almost every performance-oriented athlete and coach, amateur and professional, no matter in which sport, uses various diagnostic technologies to measure and optimize their individual performance. However, existing technologies cannot be applied to boxing.

Our solution

Innovative sensor technology that measures and assesses every boxing activity

We are kicking off a new era in boxing by enhancing it with technology. We see our product as a supportive tool that enables both – athletes and coaches to exploit their full potential by optimizing their training and overall performance. Until now athletes and coaches have always relied on what they see. Now they rely on what they know.

Boxing meets technology

Sports Analysis

Training diagnostics accessible to all athletes

Over the years, we have collected several hundred thousand punches from numerous athletes to develop effective performance diagnostics that can be integrated into the daily training process of every athlete and coach. With the help of our sensors, the ROOQ App and the Coaching Zone, we offer a valid data acquisition, which can be used not only for training and performance diagnostics, but also for team selection procedures, as talent identification or as control of training interventions.

Boxing technology

Our software sets the tone

Our modern machine-learning algorithms automatically detect all boxing specific movements and identify eight different types of punches, including the right or left. We filter out all non-boxing specific motions and determine punch performance indicators which were inaccessible for most athletes until now. Since the use of cell phones is generally prohibited in gyms, our ROOQs don’t need a cell phone. All recorded data is stored highly encrypted in the sensor, even without direct app or internet connection.

About Ralf Rüttgers
Founder and CEO

Aachen, Germany is where I was born and grew up. After a degree in business administration, combined with mathematics and international law, I gained my professional experience in various management positions and as a corporate consultant. For more than 30 years I have been crazy about boxing and I am still active to this day. I am a certified boxing coach (competitive sport) of the DOSB, German Olympic Sports Federation. In 2017 I decided to give up my professional career and develop training diagnostics for boxing. My vision is that, as in other sports, our training diagnostics will improve the potential of performance-oriented athletes, that coaches will be able to control their training contents even more precisely due to the transparency of the athletes’ development, and that our sport will regain the fame it deserves both nationally and internationally!

About Henry Maske
Boxing legend and businessman

It was more by chance that I came to my sport when I was really young. I was fascinated by the intensive examination of my opponent’s skills, indeed my own abilities. After I understood that I am the one who has to change, develop, present, contents became superficially important for me. My thoughts and I were in conflict with the requirements and doubts for almost 24 hours whether I would really succeed. How often did I wish my performance could be measured, comparable to a 100 meter runner. A good result would have given me some peace of mind. In the end, it’s always the head that counts, which has to be in top shape to get the “horsepower on the track”. But it would be good to know that my body is really ready. My coach liked to work with the few measurable variables even in his time, using them as a position-fixer, as a motivator, and in the end as an argument for building inner stability and conviction. ROOQ’s technology summarizes it to the point and could have taken away some of my doubts at the time.
