Members of the Club South work on core strength during a circuit workout. "They want to come in and start boxing right away, but the first thing the kids do when they get here is go straight downstairs and start on their homework," says Shakir Robinson, founder of the Center for Educational Equity, which serves as home base for the Greenville Boxing Club. "Even if they don't have homework, they've got to take time out – at least 30 minutes – and practice their reading. I think it's paying off."To say that the Greenville Boxing Club has come a long way in a short time would be an ill-timed uppercut. Consisting of just a few fighters without a home several years ago, the facility now has 27 "regulars," male and female, ranging in age from 7 to 38, who aspire to better themselves both physically and mentally.
