Why Boxing?

I think Henry Ford said it best, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you are right.”

Why Boxing? The program is set up to better prepare people for life. We needed an activity that demands 100% effort, just like life. It has been said that you play Baseball, Football, Soccer, Basketball and so on, but you don’t Play boxing. Boxing, like life, is not to be played. Both require 100% effort to be successful and both humble you and teach you. One of my favorite quotes was said by none other than Rocky Balboa himself while speaking to his son:

“Life is not about how you hit, but rather how hard you can get hit and still keep moving forward, that’s how winning is done.”

Resiliency is key to boxing as well as life the analogies when comparing boxing to life are endless.
