Chosen few, Marines help youth in the community

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KSWT, KECY) - No Mercy T.F.E. (Training for Everything) is a local amateur club composed by four marines and a local border patrol agent. Every Saturday morning at the Yuma Fight Academy they host two training sessions where locals can learn the sport of boxing and life lessons for free.

This club is going way beyond the sport of boxing and giving a new meaning to 'putting in the work'.

Saturday mornings at the Yuma Fight Academy with No Mercy T.F.E. (Training for Everything), consists of a morning run, at least three sets of stairs, a plethora of core exercises and one-on-one mentorship.

The club began May 2019 with the intention to give kids in the community a place to let grow mentally and physically. Since then, it has taken off successfully. The program brings in at least 30-50 kids, ages 5-19 each Saturday morning.

Breana Meza, a senior at Yuma High school is a prime example of what the program hopes to do for every kid who attend their sessions.

“This club has really helped me with my anger management…”
