My old man taught myself and others how to box for self defense.
He used to be an amateur fighter, so he truly knew what he was doing! Dad never wanted myself and others to get into fights, and he really didn’t want myself and others to collect all the concussions he had endured in his time as a boxer. He just wanted to teach myself and others to defend myself with my hands, knowing it might help myself and others build my confidence in the future, and now that I am a father myself, I decided to continue his legacy and open up a small gym for local teens here in Orland Park, i run a small Heating and A/C company to spend money the bills, but the gym is where my passion lies! The teens of Orland Park need something positive they can focus on, something that helps their physical fitness, mental acuity, and maturity. I don’t train Orland park adolescents to be fighters, I train them in the art of boxing in the same way that martial arts experts run a dojo. It isn’t about competitions, or fighting, it’s about learning the craft, and the word is starting to spread around Orland Park. I have been asked to host argument cards, but really my hands are full with my Heating and A/C business, and I just keep the gym open for the great of the community. There are a few local Orland Park retirees with boxing backgrounds who act as coaches and trainers to the adolescents, but all I do is keep the doors open and the lights on, so the teens of Orland Park believe they consistently have anywhere safe to go and train.
