Any help would be appreciated. We have put together a new program here in Batesville Arkansas. There used to be a boxing club here years ago. There are plenty of kids and teens of all ages anxious to learn and we are trying to offer them a low cost way to learn the sport. I am currently running the BJJ academy, which student base alone, doesn't quite take care of the rent, so I go out of pocket to make up the difference. For the last year I have been asked to implement a boxing program and finally got one off the ground, however, being a small community, there just arent many organizations ready to support the effort here. I am passionate about gettgin kids into sports, knowing that not all are the fastest runners, hardest throwers or best passers int he crowd. Boxing and grappling are sports that all can enjoy and excell in, giving them more opportunities in life, or just a better quality of life in general.

We have a few mitts and gloves, but many of the students just can't afford much on their own. I have more than half trading chores around the gym for tuition as I would rather have them come in for training and help clean up, than turn them away becauce they don't have any money.

Old/used, we are not concerned. No donations will be turned away, all will be used. We want to start getting kids and teens trained and into competitions as they are ready.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. [email protected] or 870-834-2092.

Why would you call it spam? :dunno: It is an honest attempt to help out a community and promote the sport. But I suppose your entitled to your opinion, as uneducated as it is.
It may help putting how much you need. Maybe a member or guest will be able to help you out. Good luck anyway mate :thumbsup:

I am not asking for money, just "ANY" spare boxing/gym supplies or equipment needed for training. i.e. mitts, gloves, wraps, speed bag, etc etc etc.

Sorry, my mistake for not reading it properly. I'll put word around on other forums and hopefully you'll get some responses.

how much are these equipment that they can't afford it? i bought some glvoes for about 8 uk pounds so 16 dollars or so. my mitts were like 5 uk pounds (10 dollars). surely these guys can go and do car washes for that kinda money. anyway if you are genuine then good luck. i'm from the uk so can't really give you any items and i aint giving you money. peace

If you're for real Groundfighter then maybe you should ask the United States of America Amateur Boxing Federation or the mayor or something.

Can't do that homie. I need to stay in shape.
If you work out at least 4 times a week for at least an hour or 2 a day you can pretty much eat what you want

Yeah I would still be fit but I feel better when I eat lean food. What's your workout schedule?
I work out 4 days a week on my own (that's not including what I do with a client. Which is mostly cardio). 1,000 push ups. 1,000 sit up. Run 3 miles a day. Weights only twice a week.

Old school training huh? I see you're trying to gain (or keep) some muscle tonus. I lift weights 4 days a week and run twice a week.

On my own yeah. At the gym I'll work along the client. I'll ride the bike with them. If there on the treadmill I'll do that. But that's light work for me. I don't lift weights to much. Cuz I want to stay lean. And not lose flexibility. I don't want to get to bulky.
