On Monday, November 2nd we launched Rock Steady Boxing with three boxers (one was out of town). We learned some basic punches, fighting stance and LOTS of stretches. Each of these guys had to take an assessment to begin class and I learned men really need to be more "flexible", just sayin'. PD takes a toll on the muscles and I am most looking forward to seeing how they improve when we do assessments in six months.
These guys are the definition of fighters. Parkinson's is a degenerative disease. So, if all we accomplish is delaying the effects of the disease, I would say we win.
