Hi, this is Bill. Continuing on with our setting up a boxing gym. The biggest thing that we're going to look at now is the ring which actually is the biggest thing, but the most important thing. You really should have a ring, and it doesn't matter if it's a raised ring or a floor ring. The size isn't real paramount either. This ring is a sixteen foot outside ring and by using smaller turn buckles we were able to get it into a thirteen foot inside diameter. Most rings have a inside diameter of a least fourteen foot, so this is not exactly small but it's compact. Which actually allows us better opportunity to stay on top of each other so we get a little bit more close combat for our training purposes. All the ropes should be covered, four ropes are better than three. A lot more safer with four ropes. All the corner post as you see should be padded and the outside posts should also be padded as well as secure. The worst thing is, is if your ropes are loose, you take a better chance of falling out of the ring. Training is not conducive to a sloppy ring. We've got to have a nice tight ring. This is a, the mat under this ring is USA boxing approved as well as professionally approved if need be. If you were to fall, you wouldn't get hurt as much as if you just had, you know, or on carpet, etc. So, it's got a good, a good matting and a good tight covering as well. We're going to talk a little bit more about the boxing ring later in more detail, but just to, as a general thing. The middle of the ring is the best, the middle of the building, the middle of the room. We can still walk around, we can still use the area around the ring, however, it's the centerpiece of the gym, and as well as should be. Thank you.
