Eiichi and Robyn Jumawan have taken their PearlSide Boxing operation to new levels in 2010 with an increased commitment to improving the skills, health and well being of their club membership.
They have also reached out to support the Pearl City community with volunteer projects such as the Momilani Clean-up.
"We take part in cleaning our community. We gather all our people together, rake & bag leaves, trash, and help with Pearl City Community Foundation projects," commented PearlSide Boxing management. "We want to instill in every member the value of being a good citizen and in serving our community. We want people to say PearlSide Boxing, they are a great organization!"
On December 11, 2010, the Jumawan's will present the PearlSide Boxing Amateur Boxing Show to be held at the Momilani Community Center in Pearl City.
“It’s a great venue and Executive Director, Breene Harimoto has been great to work with here at the Momilani Community Center,” said Robyn Jumawan.
Proceeds from December's Boxing Show help support PearlSide Boxing's community scholarship program.
Amateur boxers from Hawaii will compete in several weight classes with awards given out in the following categories:
Outstanding Bout, Sportsmanship, Outstanding Junior Bout, Outstanding Boxer, Outstanding Junior Boxer.
Seventeen year old Mark Antalan is member of the PearlSide Boxing Club and is trained by Coach Eiichi. In 2009 he traveled to Denver Colorado to compete in the Junior Olympic Nationals. Antalan is looking forward to the Pearlside Boxing Show coming up in December as an opportunity to improve his skills in competition.
"For my weight class I'm too short so coach is teaching me how to fight the inside, to get in and take away the opponents leverage," said PearlSide Heavyweight boxer, Mark Antalan. " With coach Jumawan's help I made it to the Nationals."
The Jumawan's have a wealth of experience and are actively involved in the amateur boxing community.
