Snippet from Christian, fouder of THUMP BOXING

“Four walls, a roof, and an entrance; that was all I was looking for when I started THUMP.

“The rest will fall into place” I would say to myself.

I knew the people would come even without the theories and statistics that were against my thinking. This was my dream and I believed in it. I guess the biggest mistake I made was thinking that THUMP belonged between four walls and a roof. How wrong I was!

As with everything in life, things that are meant to be will just evolve. This is no ordinary gym where people come to get fit. This is the formation of a team where people come to belong; belong to something that has been the inspiration of many great friendships, bonds and love affairs.

THUMP was born out of a simple belief that nothing fancy is needed to train and keep fit. Just a little imagination, creativity and team work can conquer the greatest enemy we will ever face in life – an unhealthy body and an unhealthy mind.

Through blood, sweat, and tears, THUMP became more than just a gym you went to. It became a place you take away with you; a way of living through dignity, courage, determination and the immense power of the human spirit to triumph over adversity.

This was THUMP, a figment of my imagination created to give hope to those who found life a struggle at times and to those who needed a sense of belonging. Most of all, it existed to make people realise that there is a fighter in us all.

Five years on and I have met amazing characters, made great friendships, and learnt the most valuable lessons in life.

I learnt nothing from my teachers but everything from my students – and what they didn’t teach me, I learnt the hard way.

I had the honor of opportunity to attend a THUMP Boxing Instructor Course during my trip in Taipei again this year (for the second time).  Many thanks to Pitt Tseng for doing a great job in creating awareness and updating for THUMP Boxing Taiwan!

This time around, Level 1 through 3 were held at Action Life Fitness Center in Neihu District.
