“I went to Forge for the first time because I wanted/want to become a better fighter and I’ve since found nothing short of this.
It’s trite but true to say that strife and challenge in life shape an individual, for better or for worse. But to seize challenge and bring some upon yourself, to take it head on, gives you a bit more agency in the matter and (if you’re smart) maybe even joy in the process. The gym is a foundation that ensures I consistently come out stronger. My growth here has been a meaningful part of my trajectory that I will look back on in reverent appreciation. Thank you! It’s been a good fight, still is.”
