Who is Dr. Ed Torrejon


Ed Torrejon - 6th Street GymDr. Ed Torrejon; Executive Director

“It is our vision to reach as many at-risk kids, and juveniles on probation, CPS referred and incarcerated youth in our community with the gift of athletics, self-discipline and confidence associated with the Amateur Athletics Union, boxing and wrestling programs.

As a 3-time All American athlete and a national collegiate wrestling champion coupled with a Doctorate in Educational Administration, I feel truly humbled and blessed to use my life experiences to help our struggling youth of today. My staff is comprised with at least 5 to 9 professional former fighters, current pro fighters or amateur fighters. All are on a volunteer basis. We match our professional fighters with at-risk youth to act as mentors coaches, teachers, counselors and friends. Once again all on a volunteer basis.

I ask you to consider the aforementioned and be generous to the 6th street gym with your donation to help us to serve our neighbors… at- risk kids.”
