SHELTER IN PLACE DEMONSTRATION

THANK YOU FOR THOSE WHO REACHED OUT REGARDING THE FEET FIRST LIVE INTERACTIVE CLASS FOR STUDENTS DURING THIS SHELTER IN PLACE ORDER.

HERE IS THE FIRST VIDEO THAT SEAN AND MY TEAM DEVELOPED. THE IDEA IS QUITE SIMPLE. FEET FIRST WILL PROVIDE A WEEKLY ONLINE VIDEO FOR SCHOOLS, TEACHERS, PARENTS WITH STUDENTS STRUGGLING DURING THIS TIME OF UNCERTAINTY. EACH VIDEO WILL COVER 60% PHYSICAL AND 40% EMOTIONAL DISCUSSION ON CHARACTER BUILDING. IN ALL 20-25 MINUTE VIDEOS FOR STUDENTS TO HAVE.

MOST IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW IS THE MENTAL HEALTH AND SAFETY OF THESE STUDENTS. WE BELIEVE WE CAN BE A RESOURCE FOR THE SCHOOLS AND FAMILIES DURING THIS TIME OF NATIONAL PANDEMIC.

"WE IMPROVE MENTAL HEALTH THROUGH GROUP DISCUSSION AND BOXING EXERCISE"

THE FEET FIRST FOUNDATION IS A NON-PROFIT 501(C)(3) ORGANIZATION THAT COMBINES EMOTIONAL GROUP DISCUSSIONS WITH NON-CONTACT BOXING EXERCISE TO IMPROVE MENTAL HEALTH IN STUDENTS. THIS POWERFUL COMBINATION HELPS ENCOURAGE STUDENTS TO BE PHYSICALLY ACTIVE PUMPING FRESH AIR IN THEIR LUNGS, AND PARTICIPATE IN GROUP DISCUSSION WHERE THEY CAN DEVELOP THOUGHTS ON EMPATHY, SOCIAL AWARENESS, AND SOCIAL CONTRIBUTION.

BOXING TRAINING REGIMENS FORCE SPECIFIC FULL-BODY TECHNIQUES THAT HELP RE-WIRE DETRIMENTAL NEUROPHYSIOLOGICAL ACTIVITY STEMMING FROM TRAUMATIC EXPERIENCES – FEET FIRST TAILORS THIS PROGRAM TO EACH PARTICIPANT SO HE / SHE ALWAYS FEELS COMFORTABLE, FOCUSED, AND DISCIPLINED WHILE WORKING THROUGH THE PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES. PRELIMINARY DATA FROM TWO SESSIONS WITH A SMALL GROUP OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS FOUND A 75% REDUCTION IN DEPRESSION, 75% REDUCTION IN ANGER, 74% REDUCTION IN ANXIETY, AND 100% REDUCTION IN SUICIDAL THOUGHTS. THE FEET FIRST TRAINING, ESPECIALLY WHEN DONE IN GROUPS, IS A PHENOMENAL WAY TO QUICKLY BUILD SELF-CONFIDENCE BECAUSE IT IS SIMPLE AND ANY YOUTH / ADULT WITH ARMS CAN PARTICIPATE. FEET FIRST FOUNDATION HAS HELPED COUNTLESS OF STUDENTS IN SCHOOLS AND IN COMMUNITIES.

EACH PARTICIPANT REGULARLY COMPLETES ONLINE BEHAVIORAL ASSESSMENTS WHICH ARE INTEGRAL TO TRACKING THE PROGRESS AND SUCCESS OF THE PROGRAM. FEET FIRST TEACHES STUDENTS TO REBUILD THEIR CONFIDENCE USING THE THEORY OF TEXTBOOK BOXING PRINCIPALS TO OVERCOME ANGER, DEPRESSION, AND ANXIETY, MAKING THE PROGRAM AN ALTERNATIVE THERAPY CENTER FOR THE AT-RISK YOUTH POPULATION, ANYONE FACING ANY TYPE OF OVERWHELMING TRAUMA, AND FEELING OF DISCONNECTION.
