Daniel brings so much of his childhood self to coaching: “What defines me is that I’m using my coaches’ lessons and adapting them into my own way. I’m a mix of my coaches, using it to better athletes’ lives.
The goal for Daniel was to give his gift back to the community, never about personal fame. He says, “boxing gave me what it needed to give me and now I can focus on teaching and still giving back in a different way.”
Our mission for establishing Marin Boxing Academy is to create a movement in the community that supports wellness engagement and healing therapy through boxing. The Marin Boxing Academy provides a safe, innovative way of addressing emotional and physical healing therapy. The goal is to bring awareness to, while de-stigmatizing, common occurrences of sexual, mental, and physical abuse. Marin Boxing Academy provides education and healing. Moving survivors to a place of resilience requires both education and movement. It is a holistic approach. Support groups and talking circles take place concurrently with group boxing classes and seminars. Within these classes and seminars, participants are invited to share their stories and how they navigate their trauma. With body movement and a strong support system, we can help people surviving violence learn to cope with the trauma and move to a place of thriving. Our traumatic experiences do not define us. Boxing will give participants self-defense knowledge and the empowerment to overcome anything.
