Hello! I am a local representative for the Forte International Exchange Association and I am looking to share a potential opportunity with a family to host a sophomore female from Spain who is interested in boxing! Laure describes herself as curious, ambitious, friendly, easy going, and sensitive. She would like to participate in dancing, cheerleading, and boxing during her exchange program. She lives on an island off the coast of Madagascar with her parents and younger sister. She is looking forward to becoming more responsible and autonomous during her stay in the US...and have fun. She also specifically requested the MN area for her program. If you or someone you know would be a great fit for this opportunity, please send me a PM and I would be happy to answer any of your questions!
To all the men and women who died this day, we remember you, and we will #neverforget. Thank you to all the people who make this annual memorial happen. It is a wonderful tribute! #neverforgetproject #september11

This e-mail was just sent out.

I know that with all of the craziness going on right now, it might be tough to give your family a sense of normalcy. We are unable to have regular classes in person but we can have interaction, training, and live class experiences!

At Enriching Confidence, we want to help keep all of our students active and motivated to continue growing and becoming the best versions of themselves.

How do we plan on doing this?

Our team has put their heads together to come up with the ultimate point driven challenge that will help keep your family motivated and inspired when practicing at home. We call it the... 🥁🥁🥁

Practice At Home Point Challenge!

How does it work?

For the next 4 weeks, our team will be live streaming classes and hosting online training for all of our students. When your family participates in our online training classes, they will earn points each time. We will also provide other weekly challenges including a weekly Instructor Challenge along with other curriculum-based challenges.

The online training and challenges that we have set-up will not only earn you points, but they will also help them to keep progressing towards their next rank or goal at the same time. Awesome right?

The Practice At Home Point Challenge will be for all of our programs
--Alexandria Martial Arts
--Sauk Centre Martial Arts
--Homeschool Martial Arts
--Motion Parkour
--Empower Boxing Alexandria
--Empower Boxing Sauk Centre
--Little Tigers
--Mastery of Positive Thinking

The Instructor Challenges currently have 2 formats - one for martial arts/kickboxing and one for parkour. They are REALLY fun!

What are the points for?

At the end of the 4 weeks, we will go LIVE on Facebook for our Point Challenge Awards Show.. Every point that your child earns during the next 4 weeks will count towards one entry in our raffle where we will be giving away prizes like apparel, at-home training equipment, private lessons, and more!

Oh, I almost forgot to mention…

We have also teamed up with Your Turn Board Games, Copper Trail Brewery, and more! Because they care so much about our community staying active and growing, they have provided some amazing prizes to help keep our students motivated. Thanks to these amazing partners, you can also win some awesome board games, gift cards to Copper Trail, and even growlers of amazing Copper Trail beverages!

When does this challenge start and end?

This challenge will begin today, March 17, 2020 at 5:00 pm and end 4 weeks later on April 15.

I hope that all of you are just as excited as our team for this amazing challenge.

How are we going to train?

We are going to use a number of different platforms for training. This will continue to change and adapt as the situation evolves. We will be using our LLC page as the main source of where and how the challenges and videos are going to work.

Please watch the Enriching Confidence, LLC website for details on where you can go to see the live training and videos as we move forward. (This page isn't used much but it will be THE source of everything you need.

We will start online classes tomorrow.

We are finalizing details on how that is going to work with the Empower Boxing team. Keep an on the above website and our Empower Boxing page for details.

See you online!


P.S. We are hosting FREE Virtual Trial Lessons! Seriously, if you want to give martial arts, boxing, or parkour a shot virtually keep an eye on our pages for Empower Boxing, Alexandria Martial Arts, and the Enriching Confidence website for more details.

Due to the mandated closure of indoor fitness and exercise facilities by Governor Walz last night. We do not have ANY physical classes, training, camps, or events at our facility through March 27 (for now).

We will however have 100% live virtual classes and video challenges. We will also have FREE live Beginner Classes for students who are interested in kickboxing.

These challenges will include points for completing the challenges and prizes.

We are working with local business affected by this as well to provide prizes. Currently, we are working with Your Turn Board Games and Copper Trail Brewery to get prizes. There will be more supporters added.

Live Online Classes may be through Facebook Live video in our Private Groups or another platform.

Online Challenges may be posted on our Vimeo channel.

We are finalizing programming now and will send out an email through Enriching Confidence later today.

FYI regarding:
-Online learning

Thank you for the great words of praise and recognition!
We appreciate you so much!

Have you fallen away from your goals for the year?
What lesson are you going to learn from that?
How are you going to make it a detour and not a loss?

This makes my heart burst!!!😍😍

This comment was made outside of our Empower pages on an individual's post. It came from a person who hasn't trained in some time.

It shows just how hard we work to create an open, welcoming, and motivating atmosphere regardless of your ability or experience level.

This is what we have been doing for 6 and a half years! It is so awesome to see this kind of post!

Thank you so much!


Empower Boxing 8:30 am class in 30 minutes! These bags want to help you have the best day ever!

Boxing class in 60 minutes.

Potomac Bead Company - Alexandria MN

Hello friends. Thank you ALL for your well wishes and offers of help and simply for thinking about us! We have a need for lots of boxes. Not too large and not too small. We are packing up all the inventory - some to be stored then brought back, some to go to salvage. We didn't have this much stuff 4.5 years ago!! The boxes need to be able to be taped shut and liftable when filled with tubes of beads or strands of stones. Obviously theuy need to be sturdy as well. The yarn is able to go in garbage bags but the rest of our stuff is too heavy for bags. We'd be happy to pick up boxes if you have some. We will check out liquor stores today - those should work well! THANKS!! ~Deb & Kyle


Fund Set Up To Help Fire Victims

voiceofalexandria.com (Alexandria, MN, February 27, 2020) – Long-term recovery is underway for the city of Alexandria and those impacted by the downtown fire Tuesday, February 25. The American Red Cross opened

[02/28/20]   Great class this morning!
It was awesome to rock with you all today!
Now, get out there and kick some butt!

Hey Josh from Empower Boxing here!

I have been doing martial arts for 20+ years. I have trained and sparred in wrestling, Judo, BJJ, Taekwondo, Hapkdio, sword, boxing, and kickboxing. I have the skills and techniques to fight anywhere I want or need to - standing or ground.

*I love it!*

It is great to be in a match toe to toe with an opponent and try to see if you can beat him in a straight up duel. There are few things as enjoyable as that feeling of competition - be it win or lose. I have won a lot and I have lost a lot. I have competed in well over 200 matches in one form or another.

*You know what I don't love though?*

Getting punched in the face. Getting kicked in the head. It isn't much fun.

I don't love the recovery from those matches and those sports. Some of them are easier to recover from than others. Taekwondo, Wrestling, Judo, and BJJ are the easiest to recover from, in my opinion. Boxing and Kickboxing are harder because the target for every strike is the head.

Concussions are not fun. I have had a couple.

The reason my wife and I started Empower Boxing in 2013 was to give you the feeling of control, power, focus, success, and accomplishment that I felt in the sparring ring without ending up looking like these guys. https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2020/02/ufc-auckland-dan-hooker-paul-felder-hospitalized-fight-of-the-night

We started Empower Boxing 6 and a half years ago to show you just how powerful and confident you can be where you are right now. Showing you that you can box, kickbox, and be a martial artist wherever you find yourself right now.

It isn't about proving yourself against someone else, it is about proving yourself to yourself. It is about becoming the strong, confident, and amazing person that is deep down inside of you. You have superhero potential inside of you and Empower Boxing is meant to help you find it.

This is boxing, kickboxing, martial arts, strength training, cardio, and everything you get in traditional boxing and kickboxing training without getting hit in the face.

*Get fit and focused like a fighter, without getting hit like a fighter!*

This is why we exist.

I truly hope you can come try a class sometime to see why this is different than any other program.

I love your face, just like it is and I love your nose in the exact shape and place it is right now. Don't change it and definitely don't let someone else change it either!

See you on the mat!

Shop local.
Support these downtown merchants.
They need your support, the big box doesn't.

As we start to pick up the pieces from Tuesday’s devastating fire, most of our downtown businesses are open. With continued unity and support from our community, we can keep downtown Alexandria going strong! #downtownalxstrong #shoplocal #shopsmall

City of Alexandria

Firefighters are extinguishing the last of the hot spots from an early morning blaze in downtown Alexandria. That fire was first reported at 4:34 a.m. Tuesday. The Alexandria, Osakis, Carlos, Forada, Garfield and Long Prairie Fire Departments responded with assistance from Alexandria Police Department, North Ambulance and first responders.

The fire destroyed four buildings on Broadway Street which is also Highway 29. The four buildings housed the businesses of: RM Tattoo, Raapers Eatery & Ale, Hidden Treasures, Charlie’s Bazaar and Little Darlings Children’s Boutique. At least 20 men and women lived in apartments above the buildings destroyed in the fire. The American Red Cross assisted residents displaced by the fire. Their immediate housing, food and clothing needs are being met by the Red Cross and local businesses.

There are no reports of injuries. More than 100 firefighters, police, Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies and posse members were on scene. Officials will continue to provide security through the night and assist residents from nearby buildings retrieve belongings or determine if their units are habitable.
Red Cross volunteers will be at the Alexandria Fire Station until 9 p.m. Tuesday for those directly impacted by the fire. The address of the fire station is 302 Fillmore Street, Alexandria.

The City of Alexandria would like to thank the many volunteers and local businesses that provided an overwhelming amount of support. The food, water and coffee are greatly appreciated. The needs of firefighters and residents are currently being met. No donations are being accepted at this time. The city will release additional information about long term needs in the coming days.

Highway 29 will continue to be closed from 3rd Avenue to 6th Avenue. Businesses unaffected by the fire will continue to be open. Access may be limited to entrances in the back.
