POLS 393 - Boxing and Social Justice (SL/CD) (4)
Boxing and Social Justice is a unique combined recreational sports, cultural diversity, and service learning course. After the fundamentals of Filipino studies are reviewed and reinforced, students will be trained to teach boxing as a recreational and self-defense activity to at-risk new migrant populations in the San Francisco Bay Area. They will act as mentors, tutors, and service providers. Immersed at their service learning sites, students will reflect on the health, recreational, social, economic, and political issues new migrants to the United States face. Prerequisite: YPSP 222: Philippine Boxing and Culture or instructor’s permission.
