Rock Steady Boxing provides encouragement by inspiring maximum effort, speed, strength, balance and flexibility. Boxing works by moving your body in all planes of motion while continuously changing the routine as you progress through the workout. Rock Steady Boxing classes may benefit anyone, at any level of Parkinson’s, and may actually lessen their symptoms and lead to a healthier, happier life.

Through rigorous training and interaction with fellow students (karate-Ka), these goals can be realized. We are a no-nonsense Club with very structured and disciplined training sessions. Training sessions are structured to develop strong basic techniques first through Kihon (basics) and Kata (forms). After much training, students’ progress to sparring (Kumite) to test the techniques. Kihon, Kata and Kumite - Strong basics first; tournament later. Besides regular training sessions, the Sioux Falls Shotokan Karate Club hosts Seminars and Examinations three times per year. An annual Summer Camp is held during the month of June.

Down for the count in California, 15th Round Boxing relocates to Sioux Falls to avoid COVID restrictions
Two brothers and a professional fighter have packed up their bags and moved from California to Sioux Falls to restart their boxing gym.
George and Evangelos Giovanis are brothers from Rhode Island who have been boxing their whole lives. Most recently, the two were based out of Los Angeles, where they owned a boxing gym. Because of restrictions from the state and local government in California, they decided to uproot their lives and business and move to South Dakota.
“In (a business) sense, life became intolerable over there. It’s a very dystopian future over there because they’ve essentially criminalized working and basically put everyone under house arrest,” Evangelos Giovanis said.
The brothers will be opening 15th Round Boxing at W 41st St in the Clocktower Plaza of Sioux Falls, hopefully by March 1, Evangelos said. The gym will specialize in boxing-only and be open to a variety of people.
The brothers boxed in Rhode Island and Florida before starting a successful gym in California for six years. There, they trained professional, amateur and recreational boxers of all ages. Evangelos said you don’t have to have experience in the sport to come into their new gym — they’ll train people young and old. If you’re only in it for the fitness aspect, you don’t even have to spar with anybody unless you want to.
“Even if they’re not going to become champions of the world, they do learn to work better in the gym. You then start to apply that to other aspects of your life,” Evangelos said. “ I guarantee we have a champion sleeping somewhere that doesn’t know they’re going to become a champion."
As the gym prepares for its opening date, Evangelos is urging residents in a state not known for boxing to give it a shot. Prices and details of memberships aren’t finalized yet, but Evenagelos said as soon as they open people can stop by to sign up and get more details.
“I just want to tell the people of Sioux Falls we feel very, very welcome here," he said. "We’re happy about moving here and sharing our passion for boxing."
