Rock Steady Boxing (RSB) was founded in 2006 in Indianapolis. RSB’s founder, Scott Newman, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s at age 39. He discovered that non-contact boxing training lessened his symptoms. Word of this program spread quickly and in 2012, the ‘Affiliate’ program was created with the goal of spreading boxing training for Parkinson’s internationally. The Rock Steady Method has proven that anyone, at any level of Parkinson’s, can lessen their symptoms, delay the progression of their disease, and improve their overall quality of life.
