He had plans to open a community
focussed boxing gym in February. Now those plans have suffered
a major setback due to a burglary. The damage and loss is estimated
to be around $10,000. Today, owner Aaron Warren
spoke to Hinerangi Goodman about his determination to realise
his dream despite the attack. It was like
a punch to the head from behind says boxing trainer and owner
of this new Rotovegas Boxing Gym. This is a side entrance where a vehicle
was rammed through the rolling door and was used as a means of loading
paint pots and various work gear. For over 20 years, schoolchildren
have been given free boxing lessons in the old gym. No matter how bad the situation
is after the work of thieves here, Aaron and his fellow workers believe
it is better to repay bad with good, and not to focus on the bad. As the saying goes,
what goes round comes round. Hinerangi Goodman, Te Karere.
