ed·u·ca·tion (ĕj′ə-kā′shən)⁠
n.⁠
1. The act or process of educating or being educated. 2. The knowledge or skill obtained or developed by a learning process.⁠

TO BE EDUCATED IN THE SPORT OF BOXING:⁠
It is one thing to think you know the physical sport.⁠ It is another to understand ALL aspects of the sport from a competitive, business, and/or even developmental lens. Boxing has so many layers and is just as much mental as it is physical - hence the name sweet science.

GJWB’s mandate from the beginning has been to teach girls and women of all ages the REAL sport of boxing, and you know we will always bring the FUN! ⁠

The better we understand the sport AND the business- the better your boxing journey will be. ⁠

Education and understanding the roles in boxing and where it can grow for us is the driving force to empowering women within the sport. Coach Kristina didn't have anyone inviting her to the table so she jumped into as many roles in boxing over the years as possible and created a table of her own. We know there are many of you all over the world doing the same - so it's time to assemble our collective.

#TEAMGJWB You need to see one to be one.

Coaches & GJWB partners Kristina and Helene were tired of the old adage 'shrink it and pink it' for women's gear. So they created the GJWB line of gear to fit women properly because boxing and most sports seem to forget we aren’t just small men. Article linked HERE.

Our longevity in the sport depends on women being able to #protecthepretty with functional gear and YES we have added the fashion to it so we can be cute while kicking-A$$. ⁠
