The Joe’s Boxing Methodology – why boxing ?

Of all the martial arts I settled on boxing or as the bra’s say “thug life chose me”. The answer to why is best summed by a quote from Bruce Lee “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” I […]

A preamble to the Joe’s Boxing method

In 2006 I was competing in a karate tournament in Johannesburg. I was well past my fighting prime at 45 but an opportunity to go to South Africa was too good to pass up. We had spent the better part of a week cooped up in hotels, bused to venues or shopping centers surrounded by […]

Changes to our kids programs

Although always room for improvement, i am very happy with our adult programs and teens after making the change to the teens program lifting the age of entry to 14 years from 13 years because our average age in teens would be 15-16 years and the body maturity is too far a gap between a […]

A combination of long service leave non-retirement holiday and a spiritual journey will see me away from 20th April 2024 till 26th June 2024. First stop Shanghai where 30 years ago i helped install the first ATM for the Shanghai Post Office. I’m expecting to see a lot of change. Then London via Dubai and […]

Good Potato Bad Potato – Bad reviews on google

One of the not so great things about using your own name as part of the business name is that if someone is aggrieved they can go online and attack you personally but anonomously. Being here for 27 years has meant that not everyone has loved me or the experience they have had here but […]
