Why lawyers should take up boxing

Given lawyers’ predispositions towards competitiveness and perfectionism, boxing can be a great outlet not only to have a healthy outlet and better manage one’s tendencies, but build a new community at the same time.

In this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Corporate Fighter managing director Josh King and Sydney Legal Advisers solicitor Joe Fitzpatrick to discuss the Corporate Fighter program, the holistic health benefits to engaging in boxing for legal professionals and how its lessons can inform one’s working life.


Moreover, Joe gives his experience as a lawyer stepping into a boxing ring and outlines why other lawyers should consider it as an activity, while Josh speaks about how boxing complements working professionals across the board.
