Punch for Veterans Boxing Class – Indianapolis
July 9 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EDT
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Saturday, repeating until September 24, 2022
Punch for Veterans in partnership with the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana is conducting boxing workouts for service connected (disabled) Veterans and people with physical disabilities. The art of boxing helps participants build confidence and discipline, as well as obtaining endurance, strength, and a healthier body. Physical activity such as boxing also improves mental health by allowing participants to see improvement in their physical health. Veterans in this program will gain new connections with each other, because of one similar goal. Good health.
Meet our Instructor: Please meet Jeffrey Tabb. “I am a former United States Marine of 14 years in service, and I received an honorable discharge. I am a service connected, disabled veteran. My first experience in Boxing was in the Marine Corps intermural Boxing camps and then being certified in Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP). 5 years ago I was a diabetic, depressed, and weighed over 270 pounds. I met former UFC fighter, Chris Lytle and he invited me to his gym where he trains at Indy Boxing and Grappling. Once I started training, it changed my life. I Boxing inspired me so much, and people would ask me to train them I created Punch for Veterans Boxing. I am completing the Box n Burn Boxing Academy Certification Course. With partnership with the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana, I am glad to be a part of the Adaptive Sports Program. The Boxing program will not only have participants learn boxing, but they will also gain new friendships and networking for their daily lives.”
