How did it feel the first time you were punched in the face? 

It’s a weird feeling. You almost blackout for a split second and when you come to, you ask yourself, "did that just happen?".

What Mario is gonna give you:

In my class you can expect a lot of footwork, a lot of movement, punches in bunches, and intense intervals.
