To devote myself to boxing I canít work the usual 9 to 5 job. Instead I would need a job in which I can control my own working hours. Once again I decided to do what Iím good at and found a great job that I can combine perfectly with my training. I work freelance as a boxing trainer. I teach boxing to children and teenagers in different schools and neighborhood projects.
There is no doubt that boxing is fun for children and teenagers, but it also has many educational benefits. It helps them develop a steady self-image and teaches them about self-control and respect towards one and other. Yet I like to see myself as more than just another boxing teacher for I also share some of my spiritual believes and teach them that they can become anything they want to be, if they put their mind to it. I also hand them tools on how to deal with bullying. I set very firm boundaries and restrictions during my class so all the children now what they can expect from me and what I expect from them in return. If these restrictions ever are crossed I install some positivity in them by letting them know that they are talented or smart and that there really is no need for them to be annoying or try and act cool. For this behavior will only hold them back in class as well as in life. So I donít just teach them boxing, I teach them how to maintain a winnerís mentality to be champions in life.
