Santa Ana’s TKO Boxing Club is having an open house today from 12 noon to 4 pm.  Come by and support these young men who have found success as athletes – and a way off the streets.  Details are shown in the graphic above.

Here is more information about TKO from their website:

On the corner of 4th St. and Garfield in Santa Ana stands the Santa Ana Boxing Club, a place rich in history and full of heart. The gym is located between two known gangs, next to a bar and in a poor part of Santa Ana. It is located in the empowerment zone area of the city.

Back in the 70s, John Ramirez Sr. opened the gym. It was considered a safe haven for the young people in this low-income neighborhood. John Ramirez, Sr. had a way with the youth and when they entered the gym it was neutral ground. For years the City of Santa Ana has supported the gym with Community Development Block Grants.
