<quoted text>
I have two sons one chose to become a Blackbelt in Tae kwon do and one who chose to train with Germain Bennet and Sean Mcginn at the Joliet boxing Club.
In My opinion My boy who trained with Germain and sean is much better prepared to handle a bully than my son who is a black belt
now i didnt think this was possible and even tried to convince my son that he should go into the martial arts with his brother. He chose boxing and now I wish my other son would have too
Bottom line is if you want to spend $1000's on uniforms a fancy moves then put your kid in martial arts. If you want him to be able to defend himself and have the confidence to do so then put him in boxing.
I heard that Sean has found a new location and will be opening soon. I believe there is still a sign in the window with his phone # for information on the new location.
Oswald Cobblepot is an idiot and probably was not aloud to leave the house as a kid. I'm sure his mommy protected him from all the bullies.
The Town of Lockport has made a big mistake!
Money is a big problem here. At the moment, we can not afford martial arts. Is there any way that you can pass along the info of the trainer that your son used? I would like to look into that. Unfortunately for all the haters on here, name calling does not effect me at all :)if anything.....it makes me feel much better about myself :)

Good you can go there. Maybe they can use your stomach as a punching bag until you go lifeless. You waste of space. Go take you rboxing club and put it where it belongs. Not in my historic downtown area. Stick it.
A boxing club in downtown, what is next, a wh--e house. Maybe Just a Porter Girl could finally find some employment there. Or Someone could finally beat the crap out of Lockport resident.
YOUR historic down town area??? U don't want a boxing ring in the down town area, ok every one has their opinions, but you are so worried about a boxing rign damaging the reputation of the "historic down town lockport" but what have you ever done to get rid of the crack house that once occupied the hotel above Dreams before it burned? Or the crack house that occupies the aprtments above the antiques shop on the other side?? You can toss all the names at me that you want, you can make your mindless childish threats. I am NOT a crack head, unfortunately I do have the misfortune of knowing one and yes my dear those two places were his favorite places to get his next fix.

with all of the name calling, threats, childish antics that have taken place on here I can't do anything but laugh. Many people have good points on hee but some of the points are just redicuolous. I understand people thinking that that down town is not the right spot. Do we want guys standing outside with black eyes smoking on the streets??? What's the difference between a sober boxer on the street smoking or a drunk that just stepped outside of the bar? Why is down town Chicago good enough for a boxing rign but not down town Lockport? And as far as the "backyard boxing ring" this has already happened. It has been created by the teenagers of Bonnie Brae. They have created the BBFC (Bonnie Brae Fight Club). Nice eh?? These kids are our future. So why not put them in a controled environment where they can get the proper training and medical attention when needed.

Cobblepot is blind to the real world. This guy wears blinders as he stumbles through life hating everything/one he doesn't like or disagrees with.

Leave the hatred behind, Oswald. Become one of us.

Meathead,
Downtown Chicago has traditionally had a lot of things that other downtown areas haven't. I don't care if a bunch of hill-billies from Bonnie Brae get together and form a boxing coalition. Good for them. I don't care.
These kids are "Our" future? They are your "future" as some of us don't give a crap about boxing. You find a place, like an athletic club maybe? You're not "OUR" problem, and it has already been stated, your NOT building in "OUR" downtown. Host one in your basement if you want it so bad, meathead. Quit using this as a place to gripe because the city told you smoke a fat one.
Have you ever noticed, that on every thread on here, you have very few people that agree with you. And most people on here want to kick your ass!

Lockport is not your historic downtown...you live in Homer!

For the most part, the people coming out of the bars, are leaving AFTER regular business hours. That is the big difference. Yes, Chicago has boxing clubs, but it does NOT have them on the main commercial street of town.

I can think of four boxing clubs and MMA clubs on main streets in chicago so dont give me that.

I just drove down State St and there were 3 people smoking out in front of Jackies and 2 in front of stellas...That was 11:00 am.

I don't know why we are still argueing this point. The city has made their decision and now it is going to cost them a whole lot more money after the boxing club sues them.

Welcome to more taxes fools! From what I understand the city didn't cross their t's and dot their i's.

more taxes... Oh great! well at least our downtown is booming...right?lol

I was introduced to Martial Arts in the early 90's with Youth of America Karate. I believe classes at the time were $2 or $3 per session paid in advance or at the time of the class. I ran a quick Google search for it and couldn't find a website, but it was advertised through schools via fliers. Typically the classes were held in gyms or civic centers. If you're looking for that kind of a class maybe check out local civic centers. A few years ago I ran into a friend teaching at one out of Christ Lutheran Church in Orland Park and the classes were 5 dollars.

We'll agree to disagree on the boxing club on State (I honestly don't like all the bars either but that's a topic for another thread.)

This does nothing for the downtown area other than swapping vacancies. Webers old place is less desirable and will sit vacant for a long time.

Everybody look out...here comes the big downtown boom!

Look back at a list of fighters of the ring. There are so many more constructive hobbies and exercise, like reading books to expand your horizons. Walking is a great exercise for all. I don't think we were created to physically punch another person in the head, or stomach, etc..unless if it were a case of self defense.
really? Too dangerous you must be one of those overprotective parents that doesn't know how boxing even works. Boxing is only dangerous if you're an idiot attempting it for the wrong reasons. Sooner your kid will be in college and he/she will be around drugs ,alcohol ,etc you need to work on your parenting skills because if you hold your kid back from

Be good here because we already lost our MMA program we need something here!
