We see boxing as a test of character: how hard you can work, how much skill you can develop, and whether you will give up. We’ve sparred with champions and pro boxers. We’ve competed, and we’ve trained many beginner and experienced boxers. We also trained each other, which has allowed us to analyze the sport and experiment with training methods, nutrition, tactics, and strategies–what works and what doesn’t. We aim to pass this information along.
