Amidst all uncertainties and ambiguity that the human family is facing gobally. We continue to offer our free and inclusive boxing program,
We find it an immensely challenging initiative to continue to offer a functional and organized programs due to the lack of support from private sector and governmental sport organization. A major challenge we face is the lack of adequate boxing equipment.
Nonetheless we possess a unyielding commitment to do what is required to ensure catering to the developmental needs of our youth participants. Often youths who attempt to strive in a developmentally unfriendly household and or ecology, cry in silence.
Praticipating in our boxing development program, allows for an avenue to release all negative energy that is emploding within. From a social perspective combat sport, and especially boxing are generally considered aggressive. However there is a concensus of boxer and trainer, who recognized through participation and analysis, that organized boxing programs can enhance the coping mechanism for participants inside and outside the ring.
From my experience i find that organized boxing programs that is holistically can be utilized a versatile tool for development. We thank Jill Diamond for granting us the opportunity to be heard.
