Kufur Yasif, an Arab village in northern Israel, hosts the main center for boxers in Israel.
Dr. William Shehade, Director General of the Israel Boxing Association and a resident of the village, talks about the Olympic boxing hall, where Jews and Arabs train together.
The center has produced many local and international champions. In addition to teaching jabs and punches, it also educates the trainees in sportsmanship, respect and friendship, serving as a bridge to peace as they get to know each other at close hand.
