Training

I am going to start running training again on Monday at the Panda. We started a tutoring program with some kids from Wash U and it is going to need a little, um, structure and discipline.

The fights went well over the weekend. I find it interesting that some people think that the fights have "lost the edge" or that it needs to be real again. I find this very funny. The fights are more real than ever. The every man stars are not stepping up to fight as often. Not sure why. I have opened an accessible gym with regular training hours. The older rock star fighters have found plenty of excuses to not train. I love to have them on the card because they sell tickets, but I am more concerned with the overall mission.

Do fighters get paid to participate?

Getting paid is professional boxing. This is amateur. I have considered doing pro shows.

Do you have many adult or female fighters? How did Panda do in the fight?

Nearly half the membership is adults. We had one adult fighter on the last card, a woman named Nikki who beat a woman from Knuckles gym in Venice. We had two kids on the card, Derron and Jeremy, both of whom lost. We specialize in adult fighters.
