This man is an Anglican priest but with a difference. You would not want to offend him put it that way. His online ministry helps to serve the community of street youth homeless/drug-addicted/criminal in a very unique way - by teaching them how to fight for starters.
At the end of this article I will leave you with Father Dave's Top 10 of why we need to teach our youngsters boxing in order to make them less violent. . .
What does it conjur in your mind when you think Anglican priest? Maybe a religious person? An old man pontificating whilst shrouded by church incense? Or perhaps a born-again Christian jumping about singing ‘Praise the Lord on high’ and speaking in tongues amidst wails and shrieks of people being moved by the Spirit ‘Toronto blessing style. '
Let me tell you that though he wears a dog-collar this man is no weakling. Father dave Smith is the minister of Holy Trinity Dulwich Hill in Sydney, Australia. From his own bio:
"My mother died while I was still 16. It was the same day that I bought my first leather jacket. By this stage I'd developed a rather passionate attraction to the ‘Sex Pistols’ and to the nihilism of the British Punk scene. With my leather jacket and metal studs though I modelled my persona more on Dee Dee Ramone of the American punk group ‘The Ramones’. "

At the beginning I promised you Father Dave's Top 10 reasons for teaching our youngsters boxing. Here they are:
When young people are in a disciplined training routine they have no time to cause trouble
Even when they have the time, they are too tired to cause trouble after a solid night’s training
Young people learn to work happily in a structured environment which has positive effects at school
In the boxing gym they learn to accept authority
Through competitive fighting, young people learn to set goals for their lives
Through developing their physical capabilities young people develop greater self-esteem
The training routine teaches them self-discipline
Through learning to control their response when they are hit, young people develop self-control
Boxing training is very cathartic for persons carrying a lot of emotional baggage or anger
When a young person joins a gym they join a new peer group of persons not involved in drugs or criminal activities
