Technology is essential. It’s the tool that is allowing the Downtown Boxing Gym to keep our program going during school closings and social distancing due to COVID-19. We’re running all of our academics and athletics over Zoom, so we’re having small group and large group workouts and tutoring sessions. “Just because you’re not in the gym, you’re still a part of the program. We have check-in times that you have to check-in. We still have the same curriculum,” DBG Founder and CEO Khali Sweeney explains. “You’re at home, but you’re still in the classroom. Your living room is the new classroom and we’re holding you to the same standard. School is always in session at DBG.”
