Our latest Boxing Clinic held on Nov 30 was the first of its kind, and there are more to come, I’m sure. What started out as simply a great idea has morphed into its own force with a life of its own!
Part of my vision with this clinic was to bring boxing back where it belongs: in the hands of the fans. The other part was to help educate and soften the edges around people’s perception of boxing as just a brutal sport. In fact, there is a reason why boxers are in such fantastic shape: training. It’s about time that the average person benefits, understands and appreciates what boxing training can do for them, their health and overall well-being. I feel it is my duty to share this information, to open people’s minds to the possibilities that they too can feel really good; that they deserve to feel great and it’s as easy as hitting a heavy bag — with proper instruction and positive intention. It is my contribution to the world right now. It was a gift given to me 16 years ago, and one that I continue to pay forward helping to empower people, build confidence in individuals, bond closer relationships as well as counter some major stresses in our current society.
The results and feedback from the clinic were beyond my wildest dreams. Stay tuned for the play-by-play of the day’s events, and be sure to connect on social media to stay in the know for more upcoming events like these!
