Blade Alvarez:
My name is Blade. I was stationed out here in February of 2020, and fighting was always something that I wanted to get into. Once I got stationed out here, I talked to one of my friends, and they recommended The Arena. And so I’ve been coming here for now about a year and a half. I loved it ever since. It was great cardio. And then boxing just started to be something that I started to like a lot more. I started coming for just more than the cardio. It’s a great atmosphere over here. Everybody’s always cool, so helpful, just so willing, so open. I love it here, man.
