With meetings four times a week, 20 or more individuals are brought together as one to form a close knit family in Boxing Club.

Alex Ortega, president of Boxing Club, wanted to bring his vision on campus to give people a way to learn the art of boxing without the high prices of a boxing gym. TJ Panen, has taken advantage of this opportunity.

“[Boxing Club] gives me an opportunity to do what I want to do, because I don’t have the money for a gym.”

Boxing Club is not focused around fighting each other and getting in the ring. It aims to build character, exercise and responsibility, according to member Adrian Garcia.

In Ortega’s eyes, Boxing Club is focused around through self, growth and through the growth of the community.

“People think its all blood and guts, [but] really, it’s a lot of spiritual growth, personal growth, and it’s about experiencing that with [the community]”

Boxing Club. meets Monday and Wednesday from 3 – 5 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday from 1 to 2 p.m. in the southeast end of Hughes Stadium.
