INTRODUCTION Boxing is a competitive sport that has regained its popularity in recent years. In the past, boxers such as Sugar Ray Lenard, Mike Tyson and Rocky Marciano had led the charge for the sport in order to reach an audience. Today boxers such as VitalyKhlitchko and Floyd Mayweather have taken the sport on their backs in order to preserve a once dying brand. Boxing entails two people engaging in a contest of strength, speed, reflexes, endurance and will by throwing punches with gloves.
Amateur boxing is where each and every boxer starts their journey. The Olympics, Turning Professional or just taking it up as a hobby are the next steps you take when you walk into a boxing facility and train. Boxing is supervised by a referee as well as your trainers and doctors over a series of one- to three-minute intervals called rounds. The ending is decided when an opponent is deemed incapable to continue by a referee, is disqualified for breaking a rule, resigns by throwing in a towel, or is pronounced the winner or loser based on the judges' scorecards at the end of the contest. If you choose to take this sport up as a hobby, training and sparring would be your only activities that you partake in.

HISTORY AND BACKGROUND OF IRON BOXING FACILITY The date was January 22nd, 6pm Tuesday early evening. I was walking to my 1st class; I decided to get back into the school system in order to become an Athletic Director. As I walked in class I sat down next to Matt without even knowing who he was, I didn’t know anyone but he seemed normal so I sat down. As the class progressed thru-ought the semester we began to get to know each other, sharing laughs and even becoming partners for this project. One day walking to our cars we talked about how great it would be / feel to win the lottery. At the time the Power Ball was over 700 Million dollars so just for fun we decided to go half on a ticket then went home to our respected families. The next morning I received a text from Matt, we had won the jackpot and there was only one ticket sold. At first I did not believe him but when I checked the newspaper and the lottery website, Matt and I were the next Power Ball Millionaires. We contemplated dropping the class, we were millionaires, but quietly we agreed to use the money to help everyone with a specific purpose. There was much to choose from, examples of ideas included:
Donating to Charity
Opening a “Super Gym” that would include all activities
Buy an Island
The choices were endless, we had all this money, but what could we do? After a brief conversation talking about the recent Pacquiao knockout, we looked at each other and decided to open up a state of the art boxing facility due to the fact that a sport we both love watching is slowing dying. Inspiration also came from television; we saw a warehouse that had every fun activity for kids to play in. Activities included skate ramps, foam pits, zip lines, name it this warehouse had fun written all over it. We had our idea; we had our inspiration now we just needed to make it work. We relied on Dr. Juniu class to help us start our business. She was able to walk us through everything we needed especially when it came to crossing our T’s and dotting our I’s. We owe her so much for her teaching we even named our Lady Locker Room after her, The Dr. Juniu Locker Room. Located on the water in Hoboken New Jersey, ladies and gentleman, Welcome to “Iron” Boxing Facility. This facility is unlike any other every boxing facility you have seen. Two floors of non-stop programs geared to help men, women and children learn and experience a new sport to help promote health and fitness and create a lifestyle for everyone who is a member.
Mission Statement Iron Boxing Facility’s goal is to provide the community with a safe and healthy environment to learn the art of boxing for men, women and children. We are a drug and alcohol free establishment. We emphasize the importance of team work, good sportsmanship, and fair play. We encourage the members to improve mentally, emotionally, socially, spiritually and physically to be an all-around better person and athlete. We encourage individuals and families to lead healthier lifestyles and assist them in reaching their goals. We strive to touch the lives of as many individuals as possible with the positive benefits of boxing. They will increase muscle mass and decrease body fat by adhering to our special exercise and healthy eating programs. IBF believes in a code which consists of the importance of respect, honor, dignity and courage. 5
Two of the most Popular Programs that are offered Iron Boxing Facility is a boxing facility where boxing is taught is a safe area. There are separate classes for youth through adult, for both men and women. With our trained and experienced boxing coaches teaching members the proper form and discipline of boxing, we are able to teach in a safe and proper way the skills of boxing. All of our boxing instructors have been trained by coaches with many years of experience. Many of our boxing coaches have boxed in the past, which allows then coaches to better understand how to teach our members. Boxing sessions are 1 and a half hour long sessions 4 times a week. 1 hour is spent on boxing skills and drills; which may also include miniature boxing matches depending on skill level of members in the session as well as age. Half hour will be spent on increasing cardiorespiratory endurance as well as muscle strength and muscle endurance. Private boxing lessons are available for members at an additional cost at separate times. This includes only the boxing skills and drills not the muscle strengthening and muscle endurance time. The muscle strengthening and muscle endurance is being part of the weight strengthening part of IBF use; the use of this area is included in the membership fee. A second program that is available at IBF is kickboxing. Kick boxing is a weight loss program that is designed mainly for women at IBF; however, it is open to men as well. IBFâ€™s kickboxing classes focus on muscle strength, muscle endurance as well as increasing cardiorespiratory endurance. Our kickboxing program is a one hour long class with most classes being in the morning. There are no minimum or maximum amounts of classes that a member must take part in.
Code of Ethics The code of ethics at Iron Boxing Facility can be described by using the four ideals which we have designed into our mission statement; respect, honor, dignity and courage. These words are 6
emblazoned on our facility’s walls. Quotes from famous boxers and other athletes further illustrate these four ideals. RESPECT - Respect is not given, Respect is earned. We teach this to each member at Iron Boxing Facility. We try to instill respect into each member at IBF, respect for others as well as respect for oneself. At IBF, we teach our members that we must respect others no matter what their point of views are. By doing this, IBF members will be able to learn more about themselves. HONOR – At Iron Boxing Facility, we teach our members that we must Honor the sport of boxing for its history as well at the dangers that can occur from engaging in this event. DIGNITY – Iron Boxing Facility teaches Dignity. One becomes proud of oneself as learning the art of boxing makes one’s body physically fit and healthy. COURAGE – Courage is not only the ability to standup to and protectsyourself against danger, but the ability to standup for those who can’t standup for themselves. Boxing and Kickboxing are both taught at Iron Boxing Facility, these are two ways to defended yourself in the face of physical danger, however at IBF, we teach our members to also stand up for those who are weak or scared.

Liability In today’s day and age where lawsuits are common, language can sometimes be confusing. Here are some common legal terms as well as Iron Boxing Facility’s Liability waiver form. Assumption of Risk– a legal defense in which the defendant shows that the plaintiff knew the dangers of the activity before they did the activity. The easiest way for a school to do this is by having the athletes, or parents sign an assumption of risk form prior to participation. Commission – the act of doing an action which occurs outside of an individual’s scope of training. Contributory Negligence – when the injured party has done something that contributed to the cause of his or her injury, such as the person not following directions or not wearing the proper safety equipment. Duty to Act – refers to duty of a party to take necessary action to prevent harm to another party or the general public. Good Samaritan Law – someone who renders aid in an emergency to an injured person or ill person who is a stranger. As long as the person giving the aid acts with in their training and is not obligated by law to do first aid, the individual giving first aid is not liable for any injuries which occur. Example being a broken rib during CPR.
Negligence – occurs when a professional does or fails to do an act that another person would be expected to do. For negligence to occur, five parts must be found; duty, breach of duty owed, breach of the duty causing the injury (causation), proximate cause (foreseeable consequences, and damages or harm that is measurable. Omission – the action of excluding or leaving out something, which leads to injury. Title IX – a clause in the 1972 Education Act stating that no one shall because of sex be denied the benefits of any educational program or activity that receives direct federal aid. Tort – a legal wrong resulting in direct or indirect injury to another individual or to property or to one’s reputation.
Emergency Action Plan Boxing can be a dangerous activity, to help with Iron Boxing Facility’s legal responsibilities an Emergency Action Plan has been put into place. To keep the Emergency Action Plan simple and easy to read the important information is put into bullet form. The Emergency Action Plan covers injuries that can occur during normal activity, fight nights and fire emergencies:
During regular operation hours, the on-site medical staff will determine injury severity. –
If an injury can be treated on site, it will be.
If an injury is determined to need further evaluation, the athlete will be given directions on how to find the correct doctor for the injury and for insurance purposes, whether in medical plan or not.
In the case of an emergency where the athlete needs to be taken for emergency medical care, the athlete will be transported by ambulance, NOT ALLOWED TO DRIVE THEMSELVES OR BE DRIVEN BY ANOTHER PERSON.
In the event of an emergency, where an ambulance is needed during normal daily activity, not a fight night:
Medical staff will stay with athlete
Secretaries will meet EMT’s at main entrance and direct them where to go.
If an emergency occurs during a boxing match: –
Ambulances will be at venue for safety.
Security will keep area clear and a path open for EMT’s
In case of fire, all individuals inside building must exit quickly, but in a safe manner, at the nearest emergency exit. There are 8 emergency exits in the facility and the main entrance/exit in the front of the gym. There is a main route and an alternate route posted on all the walls
Cleaning of any organic/body materials will be cleaned up by OSHA guidelines. The most important part of the Emergency Action Plan, is that it will be gone over every 6 months
and practiced at that time. Below is the waver that Iron Boxing Facility has each member fill out and sign before they are allowed to join. The IBF waver has emergency contacts as well as a number of sections including: Insurance, Medical Treatment, and Assumption of Risk.

Not even father time can stop the one and only B- Hop March 13, 2013 Written by: Andrew Picken In another display of defiance Hopkins now, (53-6-2, 32 KO wins) rolls back the years and defies the critics by comprehensively beating Tavoris Cloud, (won 24 (KO 19) - lost 1 (KO 0) – draw 0), to claim the IBF Light Heavyweight Title of the world on Saturday night. If there’s a nickname he would steal it would have to be PaulieMalignaggis “magic man” as B-Hop is still able to talk the talk and walk the walk, magic indeed at 48 years old! After losing to Chad Dawson in 2012, Hopkins made his way to the ring in his trademark balaclava exuberating his usual confidence and proving the doubters wrong – yet again to make history. Ironically breaking his own record he set in May 2011. Physically Hopkins looks immense sporting a physique many a 28 year old would be proud of let alone a 48 year old. It would suggest Hopkins lives the life, but more important is his positive mind set. Academics often points out that Psychology and physiology are intrinsically linked. If this is the case Hopkins is an A+ example. Hopkins defines the term “longevity” using an unusual skill set that has been perfected to out fox opponents rather that outbox them. Hopkins would ever admit that his body has slowed but the formula he has perfected is an adaptive style that can stand the test of time much longer than the
laws of physiology ever could. He is a veteran of the sport, he has extracted a learning outcome from every one of his previous 52 fights to develop a strategy that aims to emphasize his strengths and expose his opponent’s weaknesses. He works with what he has, not what he hasn’t. Deep down he probably knows he doesn’t have the engine to outlast a younger, fresher guy but his greatest toolset in the twilight years of his illustrious career is his in-ring intelligence. With saying that not once did he look tired on Saturday. A sly old dog, he can still slip and slide, weave and run, hold the ring or fight on the back-foot. He executes this style in one of the most economical ways he can, he finds space to breathe, dictates the pace whilst appearing always dangerous and ultimately frustrating his opponent by being for the most part out of range. It can be said some of the fights aren’t the most exciting to watch, but he is able to find a way to win and has fine – tuned his skills to produce results which as a boxing fan I find quite fascinating.

Final Summary While working on the final project, team work and communication were the keys to our success. Only having two people in our group, that started out as a group of four, made for more work and responsibility for each member, but also benefitted us since we didnâ€™t have to struggle to find common times to meet. We divided the work and e-mailed each other for input. Only having two people in our group made the final project easier and harder at the same time. It was harder because there was only one other person to go over the other personâ€™s work and only one other person to bounce ideas back and forth. However, even with only two people in our group, some things were easier. The two biggest parts were easier communication and productivity. We did not have to try to get four people together to work on the project. Also, when youâ€™re working in a big group, your ideas are not always heard or used, which can lead to one person becoming a less productive group member. We had no trouble communicating and felt we both pulled our weight for a productive and positive project.
