Al Bernstein

Bernstein first elaborates his thoughts on the amateur boxing scene and the utter importance of it. As he and other foundations around the United States look to fund equipment for these boxing gyms, he details it is what they do outside of the ring that is important. 

Whether it comes to a fighters safety inside of the ring, Bernstein wants to emphasize their character outside of combat sports and in their everyday livelihood. Giving his notice on the changes combat sports have done to keep their athletes safe is the most important thing.

Along with a controversial topic, Bernstein goes into depth about transgenders in the world of combat sports. Showing how there is a possibility for them in the combat sports world, without the risk of significant injury.

Finally, Bernstein talks about just how combat sports can help young children, teenagers, adults, etc. Learning the values that a boxing gym can give them at a young age,  and the teachings that a trainer gives a young kid can be all they need.

As people can be critical on combat sports, it can be good teachings for a young aspiring athlete.
