The HI-PAL Boxing Program targets youth ages 8-17, who are interested in an organized, full-contact sport.
“We were overwhelmed with the support of the community from the first event held in North Kohala. We want to continue to provide these events for our keiki and encourage more athletes, coaches and clubs to participate,” said HI-PAL Boxing organizer, Officer ‘KJ’ Kauahikaua. “It’s great for the kids, and even more so for the boxing spectators.”
