Mentality Boxing & IT4Kids
More and more young people are facing mental health issues. As many as 1 in 3 young people are experiencing mental challenges. This growing problem is created by a society that places high demands on young individuals in the form of performance pressure and heavily relies on self-reliance. Consequently, young people experience significant stress.
Through a series of one-on-one boxing sessions, kickboxing champion Levi Rigters helps young people with mental challenges. He does this based on his own experiences as well. Kickboxing also helped Levi at a young age. “I was a troublesome teenager; my parents were divorced, and I mainly took out my frustrations at home. I often got into fights and was definitely not the easiest to deal with. Kickboxing made me much calmer because I could channel my energy and frustrations into the training. I learned to have discipline and that hard work pays off.
