Rock Steady Boxing First Annual Coach-Con

I had the honor of appearing Thursday Sept 6th at the first annual Rock Steady Boxing Coaching conference in Philadelphia PA.

Here is a Recap of the event...

Some pictures are below. I want to thank The Rock Steady Boxing Organization for including the Speed Bag as a featured activity presentation for the 250+ coaches, - AND - a Giant THANK YOU to BalazsBoxing for once again sending the only "Rock Steady" free standing floor frame, the USBS-1

Coaches from all over America and 8 foreign countries came together to experience numerous professional and insightful speakers on a variety of activities and topics concerning Parkinson's disease, exercise/boxing/training tips as well as organizing, promoting and expanding a Rock Steady Boxing Program (RSB) in your respective community. This was one of the greatest moments and highlights of my personal speed bag career, for I have long believed that speed bag punching could be a vital part of a rehabilitation program. I had a blast, and it's happening again next year in Pheonix, Arizona!

If you notice a RSB program in your area, or IF you are interested in visiting, volunteering to help, you can search their program locations here https://www.rocksteadyboxing.org/find-a-class/ and see if there is one near you. They LOVE to have knowledgeable speed baggers come in and demonstrate/teach some speed bag. :)

We knew them when they were just the one facility. Heartening to see how they've grown. Glad you're a part of it. Bag on!

Speed Bag Gathering 2 or 3...can't remember (I'm pretty sure it was #2 in 2011) raised money for RSB probgram from the silent auction we held. Had about 8 Balazs I-box systems for bidding....

I remember when they had that statue right outside the Philadelphia Spectrum back in the day. I was a huge fan of the Rocky movie (still am), and it was such a thrill to be there where they filmed. For many years, everyone hated that statue like it was a joke or eye sore and they moved it around. I never understood, it is a really nice statue.
