Timing of boxing article excellentI loved the article in Sunday’s Forum (June 20) regarding boxing in North Dakota. Your timing couldn’t have been more perfect.
There is a boxing gym in Fargo. Well, at least there will be. In September we will be opening Red River Golden Gloves Boxing as an addition to our schools – Red River Judo, Red River TaeKwonDo and Red River HapKiDo.
Jessie Barbot, two-time North Dakota Golden Glove champion with more than 50 amateur fights, 11 pro bouts and an amazing 6-0 mixed martial arts record, will be teaching and coaching.
As the owner of Red River TaeKwonDo, I have had a lot of people ask where they could find a boxing gym in Fargo. I looked for many years and am really proud to add Barbot to our school. It is a long time overdue.
Grimestad is a 7th degree master instructor, Red River Traditional TaeKwonDo.
