Jordan Klusmeier, April 2014 Knockout!

“Jordan has been a wonderful part of the tutoring and mentoring program here at Double Punches. He consistently shows up and always begins doing his homework without being asked. He is a respectful young man who brings a lot of joy to our program. The other students are always delighted to see him, as he has a great sense of humor. Jordan is also a critical thinker, always bringing up current events for us to discuss. Jordan is a pleasure to have and and definitely deserves to be recognized as Knockout of the month.”  – Rubie Magallanes, Double Punches TAM tutor

Jordan, 17, has been with us for a year: “I joined because I love boxing, and I wanted to get fit. I enjoy the boxing shows the most because it motivates me to one day be a great boxer. An activity I don’t like but do anyway is running: I know it will make me better, and it keeps me fit. Because of the club I have better self confidence. DBPC motivates me to be a better person each and every day. My parents also inspire me to be the best person I can be. Ten years from now, I see myself as a respectful and responsible person.”

Keep up the great work!

Mauricio has been with us for three months, and in that short time he has demonstrated a great work ethic, discipline and enthusiasm. He is part of the TAM tutoring program, which he likes because he gets help with his homework. When asked about his experiences with us, Mauricio responded,

“One of the activities that is challenging to me is push ups, but in the future, it will help me stay in shape. [DPBC] is giving me self defense and discipline. The person who inspired me to go to boxing is my uncle, after he took me a few times to boxing in Mexico.”

Ten years from now, Mauricio sees himself becoming a computer engineer.

Keep up the awesome work!

Meet Judith Garcia, November Knockout!

Nov2013_Knockout_JudithGarcia

Judith and her younger brother, Abel Garcia, have been at Double Punches for about 3 years. She wanted to join for the workout, and to meet new people. The coaches chose Judith as the Knockout of the month because

” She is a great athlete, and one of the hardest working members of the club. She is an example to others, always with a positive attitude and willing to help out when needed; helping others improve their techniques.” 

Judith also enjoys playing volleyball, and having a fun time with her friends. The one workout she dislikes are the weight exercises, but she knows she has to do it to be stronger. When asked where she sees herself in the near future, the fourteen year old says,

“I see myself in a good place, and still in boxing, graduating from high school. [Double Punches] has benefited me a lot because I could stay in shape and get good grades at school while learning a lot of boxing skills. The one person who inspires me is Richard, because he pushes me to do the right thing, and helps me a lot.”

Judith is currently getting ready for possibly debuting in her first fight in the future, so stay tuned!

October 2013 Knockout of the Month:
Reynaldo Robledo
Reynaldo Robledo

Rey has been with Double Punches for one year. When asked why he joined, he says it’s because he wants to be a Professional boxer someday. He enjoys everything about boxing, and has no complaints about the exercises. Rey believes the club has benefited his discipline, gotten him out of trouble, and helps him get away from his problems. He says his family in particular has influenced and inspired him because they motivate him to be someone in life, and they also love the sport of boxing. Ten years from now, Rey hopes to be a Pro boxer. This month, Rey was nominated for Knockout of the month by some of his fellow classmates because of his focused and friendly attitude, both in the ring and off it.
