The UMAR Boxing Progam is an afterschool program for at-risk youth in Baltimore City. Our motto is “No Hooks before Books” as our organization combines academic development and athletic training under one roof. While boxing is an exciting draw and integral part of the program, academic development is the paramount goal. Children must participate actively in the academic program in order to participate in the boxing program.
