EPCSO Detention Officer Uses Boxing to Mentor Youth; Sessions set for this Weekend

El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Detention (EPCSO) Officer Luis Trevino, along with WarriorsEdge Boxing are hosting a Boxing Skills Seminar Saturday, April 15th, and Sunday, April 16th, 2017.

Detention Officer Trevino and the staff at WarriorsEdge have turned boxing into an outlet to help and mentor children and teens. They use boxing to introduce children and teens to structure and discipline, not only inside the boxing ring, but in their daily lives as well.

The seminar will focus on footwork, defense, offense, speed, agility, strength, and discipline. The seminar will be open to all boys and girls from ages 7 and up.

The seminar will also feature the opportunity to train and meet WBO Super Bantamweight and WBC Featherweight, 2-time World Champion Daniel “Tarahumara” Ponce De Leon. Attendees will learn about Ponce De Leon’s struggles and climb to boxing success.

Proceeds will go to the Mentorship- At risk youth program for the purchase of uniforms, bags and pay for other seminars in the future.

To register for the seminar or for more information contact WarriorsEdge Boxing Gym at 915-740-4744.
