About Our youth Programs

What if girls didn't question their strength?

What if they understood that those qualities that society deems weaknesses, are actually strengths? What if they chose not to ascribe to one definition of femininity or womanhood?  what could they achieve if they were free to just be themselves?

I have always been a petite woman, a larger-than-life personality stuck in the body of a person everyone assumed was delicate and feeble.  Boxing changed the way others saw me, and more importantly, it changed the way i saw myself.  no longer fragile, i was now a force to be reckoned with. i was a boxer.  i would ask myself, "what else can I do? what else can i achieve?" by applying the fortitude and endurance i learned through boxing, i was convinced there was little i could not overcome.

that is the feeling i hope every girl who comes into our program gets. We offer free boxing and jiu jitsu classes to girls aged 14-19 in New York City with the goal of fostering empowerment through combat sports, instilling strength, tenacity, and self-patience.
