Give A Kid A Dream Gets Back Into The Ring in High-Tech Style
Thanks To The Oculus Quest 2 VR
Brooklyn, July 1: We help inner-city youth in their formative years. We work to instill confidence through boxing training, tutor to help with school work, and provide a safe haven for our participants.
To teach our youth how to box and have them engage more in a way they can relate to, the oldest running boxing gym in the USA, Gleason's Boxing Gym, in Brooklyn, NY is using Oculus virtual reality to teach participants of Give a Kid a dream program boxing.
“The level of participant excitement and enthusiasm has never been so high,” says, Bruce Silverglade, President of Gleason’s Gym. “We are deeply rooted in boxing tradition and training but we are finding youth today really relate to the Oculus and are spending more time in the gym working out and learning to box. We plan on implementing this method of learning with all our participants and we think it's great." Give a Kid a Dream, continues to be one of the most successful youth boxing programs out of New York City. We strive to keep up with the most innovative ways of teaching children to become world champions of life.
