Training fighters: body and soul

Panama Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo

Some would say life is about fight, and it certainly is for many in El Chorrillo. Without much educational opportunities or access to permanent jobs, many who might have different talents or could develop skills just don´t.

Breaking this cycle takes initiative, a good amount of energy and no little courage, for both participant and mentor. I`m glad to post today an article about one of these initiatives, this one led by the TLG Gym at Calle 4ta, Santa Familia.

Knowing how hard it is to change an attitude created by the wrong background,  it was truly amazing to read the testimonials of the Brown brothers and how their world view on what is possible has changed from nothing to a step forward.

Big thanks to Steve Crissman and John Boyle for taking on this challenge!
