Revised schedule

Gleason's Certified Boxing Basics

Yuri Foreman will be the Boxing Instructor.

Foreman isn't the typical immigrant boxer. He's a Belarusian Jew and is studying to be a rabbi. After Foreman won the WBA super welterweight title last November against heavily favored Daniel Santos, he said his faith, as much as his fists, was the determining factor.

"I believe that, looking back, I needed to find Judaism in order to become a world champion," Foreman said.

Foreman was born in Gomel, Belarus, then in the Soviet Union, and began cultivating his boxing skills at age 7. His family immigrated to Israel when he was 10. Growing up in a poor neighborhood in Haifa, Foreman believed boxing was his only way out of poverty. In 1999, he moved to Brooklyn to pursue his dream of becoming a professional boxer. There, he met a local rabbi who pushed him to make adeeper connection with his religion. Later, Foreman decided to begin classes to become a rabbi.
