Date: May 5

Girls are often taught to hold back anger and frustration, or to keep from rocking the boat to keep the peace. But in this session, we’ll celebrate healthy anger! Join us May 5 at Title Boxing East Nashville for a truly unique event.
Instead of burying anger, we’ll guide girls and caregivers to channel it into creativity, passion and power. After an interactive conversation led by Dr. Lauren King on how to harness anger in healthy ways, girls and caregivers will learn the basic punches and kicks of kickboxing and will practice some age- and skill-level-appropriate moves with the pros at Title Boxing.
Don’t worry, you’re not in any danger of getting hurt and no one will hit you! Each person has their own heavy bag to work out on, plus their own space to move around the bag. Our awesome instructor Jasmine will show you the ropes from the beginning, and Title teammates will help you wrap your hands and walk you through the basic fundamentals. It’s a fun and empowering workout for any fitness and skill level!
