147 Empire’s Boxing Workshop for Metro World Child Year 1
Written by Kuya Harvard
Network matters. Kuya Rob, the owner of Empire Boxing knows a friend of Kuya Harvard. He wanted to teach and reach out to kids, we made it happen last August 5. We picked 8 boys and 8 girls from Metro Ministries for an afternoon of fundamental know how on defense using boxing and martial arts. We wanted to highlight the use of these sports as defense and as a possible career for the kids. Career wise it can be used not only for actual competition but also to army, police, etc.
We started with stretching. After that we asked the volunteers to assist the coaches on instructing the kids. “Some of them showed much potential in the sport”, says Kuya Rob. Empire Boxing also had exhibition boxing and MMA (mixed martial arts) as seen in the photos. We wanted them to know how its done, and how to do it properly after teaching them.
We ended with lots of food courtesy of Empire. Thanks Kuya Rob and team. The kids had a great time and learned much from the afternoon’s event.
