The program, developed in 2006, aims to help those suffering from Parkinson's by using professional techniques. The effect of the program is explained by Lesley as:
Boxing’s just the opposite of Parkinson’s. Instead of to shrink you, everything’s designed to pump you up. First of all, you get to put on these great gloves. It gives you enormous, giant hands and a different attitude toward the world. You get your physical courage back and your mental courage seems to kinda come along.
We hope that Aaron's hard work finally pays off. Stay tuned for more updates.
