Charlottesville gym holding boxing event to promote problem solving
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A Charlottesville gym is holding an event Saturday, September 16, to promote problem solving without violence.
This event is made possible thanks to a couple of sponsors including the B.U.C.K Squad, the Green Light Podcast with Chris Long, 100 Black Men of Central VA, HER Sports, Julian’s Juicebox, and Integrity Mentoring.
“We’re trying to teach the youth as well as adults different ways and avenues they can go down without using violence or guns, because once guns and violence get involved, you know, there’s no coming back from that.” Martize Tolbert said. “Boxing is way more than just throwing punches. It’s a mental thing, it’s a discipline, it’s an art, it’s a skill.”
Tickets start at $15. Click here for more information.
