How did you get into boxing and how did you find yourself at 3rd Street?

β€œI've always been into martial arts growing up and have had little experience in everything from Shaolin Kenpo to Filipino Knife Arts. My friend wanted to try a boxing class at 3rd St which prompted me to follow and I've been here ever since.”

What's the best part about boxing? Why do you train?

β€œThe best part about boxing is the community and environment. There's nothing more motivating than being around like-minded folks that are working on bettering themselves. I've been training for general fitness and to also develop my fighting confidence.”

Any words of advice or encouragement for newbies?

β€œDon't be afraid of getting things wrong or looking like a fool in the beginning. We're all here to learn and develop our skills. Just focus on the basics and everything will follow. Jab more.”
