Boxing class empowers women

I find it discouraging that Dr. Fishaut’s letter could turn adolescents and parents away from a class that has enormous benefits because he made an assumption and didn’t do his research on this particular class. I have been attending the women’s boxing class for two years and it has, quite literally, changed my life for the better.

There is absolutely no contact in any way, or the potential for a neck, head injury, or concussion. This class empowers women and girls to feel strong and confident.

BooBoo James is an inspirational and caring part of our community and the positive outcomes from this class are limitless.

Thank you,
