About Me

I was a military brat for 13 years traveling all over the world. I was a Health and Physical Education teacher and turned professional boxer at 26 after a fine run in the amateurs that included Mid-Atlantic AAU & Collegiate titles and a bout with Sugar Ray Leonard. I also coached boxing at Temple, as well as at Penn. I founded the Boxing Scholarship Foundation helping boxers who need money to go to college. In picture above is Sugar Ray Leonard boxing Bernard Hopkins and me refereeing at a fundraiser. I only accept and need two or more students at a time to do drills.

Client Success Story

The best way to describe my class is from a former student of mine at the University of Pennsylvania, Samantha Prestia. I put her words in quotations.

“First, let me commend any school or college that thinks boxing is a dangerous sport to teach and for its departments for its diligent protection of the student body; yours is an important position we all rely on as students. I realize that both popularized professional boxing and amateur level competitive boxing is dangerous activities that practically guarantee injury.

What I wish to express to the administration of any school is the difference between the sport of boxing and Ron Aurit's Boxing class that may not be evident at first glance.

During meetings of the Boxing Club at Penn we are taught the basic technique and form of moves used in the sport of boxing; including punches, blocks, ducks and footwork. We then pair up to practice the punch and the corresponding block, alternating roles.

The distinction here is that the members of the Penn Boxing Club are not
competing. It is not a fight in which opponents intend to hit in order to gain
points or a knock out. Instead it is a practice of skills alone or within
pairs, repeating moves without aggression or intention of harm. Each member is instructed by Mr. Aurit how to adjusts their behavior in order to match the skill level of their partner.

As one of a few female members of the club, I feel I have a certain advantage in this debate. Not only did I feel in no way in danger of injury, I was also welcomed into the club and given a chance to partner with any member of the group. This was possible because of the policy set within the group to adjust to one another: when sparing with me male members were not violating a social mandate (never hit a girl) because hitting each other is not what we were doing. Instead it was a practice of punches, blocks and counter punches, each of which were explained and demonstrated in detail before pairing began. At no point in my experience with this organization was my safety at risk at any time.”
