Life in Detroit can be tough on many kids, including 15-year-old Jordan. Sadly, his father was killed; now he only has his mother.
At school, his grades began to slip. He acted up in class, wound up getting suspended and desperately needed help getting back on the right course.
Enter Coach Khali and the Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program.
Jordan has been attending the Program for the past three years. By the time he reached the eight grade, he managed to turn his 0.2 GPA into a 3.5.
Although he's had recent struggles at school, Jordan -- who considers Coach Khali a father-figure -- has continued to grow and learn from Coach Khali's insprational lessons, and has become one of the most inspirational people we've ever met.
Hear more about Jordan's touching story in the video, above.
