It's a short one but you'll love the story.

Thoroughly enjoyed my conversation with none other than THE Jolie Glassman of South Beach Boxing.

Before owning South Beach Boxing, Jolie (who has a bachelor’s degree in education from Florida International University and a master’s degree in behavior) was a Miami-Dade schoolteacher, working with kids in Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center and the Women’s Detention Center.

Jolie continuously impacts the community.  She is developing programs with local middle schools and high schools to teach kids about anti-bullying, self-defense, boxing & fighting skills. She loves working with families, facilitating better communication and bonding between parents and kids. 

In 2016, after 25+ years of working with kids & at-risk youth, Jolie created her own 501c3 charitable foundation, Jolie’s Kids’ of Hard Knocks,  after – school program and it’s sponsored by Nike.  

Ali, Roberto Duran and Floyd Mayweather are some of the famous boxers who have trained at South Beach Boxing over the years. 

Find out more about her here but in the meantime, pop the kettle on and take a comfy seat.  The show is about to start.
