Youth Fighting Forward
“Creating Champions Inside and Outside the Ring”
Mission: Engaging young people affected by violence and crime by using boxing and MMA, combined with education, to develop life skills.
We understand that young people’s actions and behaviors are a reflection of the various needs, choices, and influences in their lives. Our aim is for overall personal development and not behavior correction. These tangible changes in young people’s behavior are dependent on internal changes in their perception, motivation, and decision-making.
