Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts Training is what we offer.
So who are we and why are we here? Well first off let me introduce myself, my name is Ailey, and I am the one who opened UWSO MMA and Boxing Gym. I currently run this boxing gym and love every minute of and welcome you to join the team.
So why did i open a Mixed Martial Arts gym up?
I opened this boxing gym up because as a little kid i always loved watching the sport of mixed martial arts and boxing and for some reason it just stuck with me as i grew older. Its my passion i guess.
The thing is as a kid i never got the training that i always craved. We were dirt poor as a family and couldn't afford much other than the roof over our heads.
As i got older is when i really started to realize this. I was working as a cashier in a little grocery store right next to my house and school. I started to save up because i knew if i ever wanted to train and become one of the big dawgs and make a name for myself i would have to start training. And the only way i would be able to train would be with a punching bag or something as to a punching bag as possible.
I managed to save up enough, to finally get myself a punching bag. It was game time. I literally trained on this thing everyday all day.
This bag was my go to training technique. I was ready to go. I knew that my only training that i would get would be with this bag. I literally remember i would un hook this bag from the ceiling and take it to the ground the practice on my ground ground game.
I remember my mother would come down and always tell me it was time to go to sleep. My mother worked with a guy who worked at our local fitness center and she was able to get me membership to go to that gym. The gym was mainly a weight lifting center but has a couple punching bags in it and actually had some boxing classes. I started going there and before long the owners noticed me as i would stay there all day and train on their punching bags. This is where my journey started.
Finally i was able to get myself into a boxing gym because the owner knew i was poor but had the heart to train non stop. They told my mom to get me to boxing gym in East California and i finally was able to train with my boxing coach.
This dude took me in under his wing as taught me everything i know today.
This was my story, i came from the bottom and had no money to start but i knew i had what it took. This is why i opened up UWSO boxing gym. I want to help out the youngsters and anyone else out there that doesnt have the funds to get started but has the heart to.
This is why i welcome anyone and everyone to my gym to train with the top guys. The ones with the heart are the ones that i truly want to train and are the ones that i know will succeed.
