Rapid City Youth Boxing Club says boxing is a good sport to try in 2019

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - All week long Good Morning KOTA Territory is highlighting new hobbies to try in 2019.

The Rapid City Youth Boxing Club has kids from 8-years-old all the way up to adults competing. Butch Hamling, a coach at the gym, says this is a great hobby to get into for 2019 because it's a different way to workout and it's also just a good way to relieve some stress and can be good for you if you have some anxiety.

He encourages people to try it out.

"It's just a lot of fun. I would suggest coming down and watching it because boxing isn't for everyone," said Hamling. "It is a lot of fun, just to learn the skill is worthwhile. Self-defense, just a lot of reasons."
