Hi, my name is Andrew Peters and I am the founder of The Boxx Method. Boxing and martial arts are incredibly important to me, and have been since I was a young boy. I have been practicing the art of Jiu Jitsu since I was 10 years old, and got into boxing slightly later when I was 16.
As a 42 year old, I think that gives me enough expertise to talk to others about these sports and educate them on the ins and outs of boxing and martial arts.
Martial arts helped me navigate my way through the tough times of high school – such as bullies and struggling with growing up. I had always been a hotheaded child, and my mother was struggling with what to do with me.
As a last attempt at helping me control my anger, she enrolled me in boxing classes. It was instant relief – punching a bag with all of my strength was an excellent way to get it all out. Even now when I’m feeling irritated I know that I can always count on my punching bag.
After I had sorted out some of my anger, I realized that there was much more to boxing and martial arts than just punching. I was in awe of the technique and the mental strength that it took to compete in these arts, and so I set out on learning them for myself.
Now, I compete in tournaments as well as train younger kids and teens in various martial arts. My own daughter is enrolled in karate classes, and she’s excelling much faster than I did at her age!
The Boxx Method is a website for coming together and learning about the magic that is martial arts. Enjoy it!
