Lucky (Head Coach) and Thabo (14 yrs) are members of the Insight Boxing Gym (FWI) in Hillbrow Johannesburg. Lucky is Thabo’s mentor and through boxing helps him make better life decisions and supports him in all areas of his life. The gym was opened in Hillbrow in response to the challenges facing young people in this inner-city community including violence, gang culture and homelessness. The open-access boxing programme provides a safe space with trusted and caring adults. Boxing is the hook that draws children and young people into the programme and creates the opportunity for further intervention.
