Anton - Australia

"The change I had was through sport, through boxing, stick fighting and kick boxing."

"The routine, the release of endorphins, being around a great supportive community, they were the things that showed me there was something worth more than all the negative stuff I was doing."

Anton turned his life around after he was arrested for dealing drugs. These days he works with us mentoring young people in the criminal justice system. Using physical exercise he runs a program to help them with anger management and to improve their decision making, self-esteem and self-discipline.
