Chuck Wepner Visits Florida

While in Florida, Grand Master Marchetti was recently visited by boxing legend and good friend Chuck Wepner. Mr. Wepner is also a important part of the Kearny Martial Arts family. Holding an black belt, he visits our dojo often and is commonly in attendance at the closed door Black Belt tests.

For those of you who might not know who Chuck is in the boxing world, you can hit the web or the Chuck Wepner Fan Page to find out more. Start by learning the story of how Chuck Wepner inspired Sylvester Stallone to write “Rocky” based on the experiences of Chuck and Muhammad Ali. Then move on to the rest of the story behind this amazing man.

Pictured here is Grand Master Marchetti and Chuck at a Harley Davidson dealership where Grand Master Marchetti also gave a class… which we will discuss in another entry!

    Martial arts, if coached correctly, are a wonderful vehicle for the positive expression of masculinity and the warrior archetype. Thanks for sharing.
