John Bray Boxing Foundation Clinic a Success!

Convicted Artist sponsors John Bray Free Youth Boxing ClinicThe John Bray Boxing Foundation and LAPD Foothill Jeopardy Program teamed up to hold the 3rd Annual John Bray Free Youth Boxing Clinic this past Saturday in an effort to continue to assist at-risk youth in the area.  Both non-profits arranged this free youth boxing clinic because of the issues with kids that are of crucial importance to the community.   Many children and young adults face temptations everyday, whether it is drugs, gangs or peer pressure.  The free youth boxing clinic was organized to provide a safe haven for the kids as well as give them a chance to listen to very interesting motivational speakers as well as learn a few boxing techniques from former and current professional boxers.
 
The clinic kicked off with special guests speaking to participants about life skills and attitude development. These guests consisted of both professional boxers and community leaders such as former world champion Rafael Ruelas, Foo Fighter Guitarist Chris Shiflett, former middleweight contender and president of the Retired Boxers Foundation Alex "the Bronx Bomber" Ramos, and keynote speaker Ken Greene who is a legal advisor and attorney for the California Boxing Hall of Fame.

Also in attendance was President of the California Boxing Hall of Fame Don Frasier, referee Jack Reiss, former heavyweight contender Jeremy Williams, top trainer and cut man David Martinez, and former Contender TV Series Star and current WBC CABOFE middleweight champion Miguel Espino who showed some pointers to the kids.

After the special guests spoke, the boxing clinic commenced and participants were shown different boxing techniques on heavy bags, speed bags, double end bags and foot work.  The clinic wrapped up with a free raffle and kids were given various gifts from our sponsors.
 
The John Bray Boxing Foundation would like to thank Officer Jose Hererra and Captain Hilsner of the LAPD Foothill Jeopardy Program for all their assistance in the event.

We would also like to graciously thank the following sponsors for making this event a reality: Everlast Worldwide Inc., Powerade, Convicted Artists, Visual Impact Stunt Equipment Company, the International Stunt Association, Remetee Clothing and the Tournament of Contenders.

Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I've been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Cheers
