We want to give a big shoutout to Heartland Orthopedic Specialists and our ringside Physican Dr. Timothy Lindley for volunteering his time to keep our boxers safe at Way of the Warrior 2 last Saturday. USA Boxing has specific guidelines and rules for boxers to be throughly checked by an appointed Physican before and during the matches. It is why Amateur Boxing is more safe statistically than Football, Wrestling, even Cheerleading. Dr Lindley has a love for the fight game and there is no other Doctor we would want in our corner making sure our boxers are safe. Dr. Lindley had the single most important job at our show, and for the 2nd show in a row no boxers were injured, knocked out, or concussed.

Bout 4 of Way Of The Warrior 2 between Paul Haas of Nordic Warriors Boxing Academy and Andrew Bergs of Nordic Warriors Boxing Academy. This event was last weekend at the Broadway Ballroom Event Center in Alexandria, MN.

Ezra Andersen has been on tear in the year since he started boxing. Known for his incredible punching power and electric fighting style, he normally competes at Heavyweight which is a maximum weight of 201 lbs. For Way Of The Warrior 2, there were no heavyweights brave enough to step foot in the ring with him. There was only one man brave enough, a Super Heavyweight tipping the scales at 265 lbs. Ezra competes tomorrow in the Main Event in a classic little big man Vs BIG MAN match. Who is coming to watch him?!

Shoutout to the real MVP'S of tomorrow nights amazing event @Way Of The Warrior 2. Please thank and support these businesses for making this possible! πŸ€—πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘Š

Very proud to announce that Dylan Barber will be competing at Way Of The Warrior 2. Dylan joined the gym 5 months ago. A year and a half ago, Dylan lost everything because of alcoholism. He lost his job, his vehicle, even a place to stay when he went homeless after treatment just a 1 and a half years ago. Dylan graduated out of Liferight Outreach, joined the gym and has moved forward in a very positive direction in his life. No matter where you are in life, you to can come back and accomplish great things. Dylan reminds us of that, and we are proud of him. Dylan is the first person to voice is past struggles because, he wants to make a positive impact. Let's show him our support and cheer him to victory. Very proud of you Dylan!

Extremely excited to announce the co main event, the welterweight title match between Matt Umland and Elvin Samuel Vasquez!!! NWBA boxer Samuel has shown tremendous skills since joining our gym. Despite only having 10 amatuer bouts, he has been sparring with pro boxers and getting the expirence he needs to follow his dream of turning professional one day. Matt has won numerous junior titles and was last years Region 4 welterweight champion. It's going to be an exciting bout to remember, can't wait to see it!!!

At 35 years old, when Andrew "AJ" Bergs walked into our gym 5 months ago, we never thought he would be ready for competion without at least 1 year of training. In those 5 months, "AJ" dedicated himself, dropped a ton of weight, got registered to spar and has been a sponge to all of our training. He's turned into a beast and is MORE than ready!!! And he competes at Way Of The Warrior 2 on Saturday. Come show your support πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Very excited to announce that NWBA boxer and coach Paul Haas WILL be competing at Way Of The Warrior 2. Paul has been with us from the beginning (even before we had a facility to call our own) and has ties to boxing stemming in New York and Jersey. Paul has been such an asset to the gym as a coach, being a positive influence on the youth of our community. We must ralley around and support him in competion, he deserves it. Support Paul πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Šβ€

We want to give a special thank you to the sponsors of Way Of The Warrior 2. Without them this event wouldn't be possible. The faces of these businesses will be at the show, supporting the boxers they sponsored. Please show your support to them by following their pages, see some of the wonderful products and services they offer, or send them a message thanking them! πŸ‘‡

Who wants one?!

NWBA boxer competing at Way Of The Warrior 2 we have Micah Cole. Micah is a volunteer Firefighter for the Evansville Fire Department and paramedic for North Memorial Ambulance. Micah along with his brother Jacob, are part of our "Fit to Fight" program giving first responders ongoing physical training, and have been a huge asset to the gym by volunteering at the gym with numerous construction projects. They also are the team for Minnesota Gutter who have sponsored our "Fit to Fight" program. Micah needs your support next Saturday, come out and cheer this hardworking, selfless man to victory!

One year ago today, we opened up our doors to our own facility. We took a run down, dirty garage and turned it into a place where young men and women learn life skills that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. A place were dreams are chased, and achieved. A safe, positive place where age, race, gender, political views, athletic ability are irrelevant, because when you are here it's all about bettering yourself. It doesn't matter what your goal is, it's all about making yourself better. We wouldn't have any of this, if it weren't for the members that feel this is truly important and have donated their time and effort into making this the amazing place that it is today. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you members of NWBA, where you aren't just a gym member here, you are FAMILY.

Featured at Super Heavyweight and representing NWBA at Way Of The Warrior 2, Tyson (fitting name for a heavyweight) will be competing in his 2nd match as a boxer. Tyson has shown tremendous potential. Come out and see him display his skills on December 7th!

Had a big surprise last night when Lucas Towle showed up at the gym! Lucas was a registered boxer with us for a long time and preparing for his first match, when an opportunity came and he pursued his dream to move to Montana to work as a rancher. Lucas was just visiting, but it was amazing to see him and how well he's doing!

To all the Veterans out there, THANK YOU. It's so easy to take for granted all that we have as Americans. Clean water, electricity, freedom of speech, financial opportunities, luxuries that seem we are entitled to, we truly aren't. We thank you for defending our freedoms, this is your day Veterans.

πŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈπŸ’ͺHere we have one of our sponsors Tim Abell with Tim Abell Construction LLC attempting to hit the speedbag. Make sure you watch until the end to see his "skills". 😜πŸ€ͺπŸ˜‚

There is NO sparring today! Have a great weekend, we'll see you Monday!

Very happy to announce that Lake Country Meats has joined our team sponsoring our Way Of The Warrior 2 show going down on December 7th. Owners Butch and Tracy came down to check out our gym as well as generously donate shirts, hats and sweatshirts from their amazing meat market. Lake Country Meats clearly cares about it's community with their numerous contributions to it. If you get your meat at a grocery store, you are making a mistake! Buy local meat that blows away the grocery store stuff in taste and nutritional quality for equal prices, not to mention goes back into YOUR community.

New Sponsor Alter*** Tim Abell Construction LLC have joined our team to help provide a show to be remembered when Way Of The Warrior 2 goes down December 7th. Tim Abell has a hardworking team that can handle any construction project you have including sidings, flooring, decking, bathroom/kitchen remodeling and any new construction project. Check them out for your next project!

Very proud to announce our 1st Sponsor to our "Way of the Warrior 2" show Damaris Ganz! Damaris is a realtor with Central MN Realty who separates herself with her community work. When she became introduced to the gym and saw its positive impact on the community, she jumped at the opportunity to support it. Go check out her listings and her overwhelming passion for getting people into their dream home. Thanks Damaris, we will see you VIP at our show!!!!!

Sorry for the delay in the results, but yesterday we competed in Columbia Heights. We went 2-3 as a team. All 3 of our losses could have been wins, but some bad habits came out that prevented us from attaining victory. As a coach, I take full responsibility for those losses. We will go back, make adjustments and be stronger for it. We are humble in victory and defeat, and continue to build and grow. Proud of all boxers for showing true heart, especially Mikey, who boxed when he wasn't 100% and gave it his all. Thanks you to Firehouse Gym and all volunteer boxing officials that make this possible!
-Coach Corey

Happy Halloween everyone. Just a reminder, there will only be lil Warriors and Kids Boxing Class today at 3:30, and 4:00 pm. Gym will still be open from 3-5 pm if any members would like to come get a workout in.

This Sunday Samuel Vasquez boxes Dominic Badillo in Columbia Heights. This is a significant match for several reasons. The winner of this match will get a 138 lb title match at our show December 7th against an opponent to be announced. Dominic is a dear friend of the gym, so in some ways it's difficult pairing him up against one of our fighters. At the end of the day, we know we will come out of the ring hugging, knowing both boxers will be better from the expirence. Good luck to both boxers!

[10/30/19]   Just a reminder, on Thursday for Halloween we will have kids classes only. So Wednesday come get your boxing fix in at 5 pm!

We are putting in our last preparations for November 3rd where we will have up to 5 guys competing. Samuel here, has a BIG match against a tough, and expirenced opponent.
