Alex Ventura is the founder of FIRST2FIGHT. Alex started boxing at the young age of 14. He trained for 6 years and competed in many amateur boxing bouts. He graduated in 1999 from Sonoma Valley High School. In 2004 Alex started training in the art of jiujitsu. From there, Alex trained and gained experience from many local boxing and jiujitsu gyms. It has always been a goal for Alex to eventually start his own gym. Alex was forced to stop training and competing due to a dehabilitating sports injury. In 2012, Alex started teaching a boxing and jiujitsu class at a local gym in Sonoma, CA. The class grew so popular that Alex decided it was time to start his own gym. FIRST2FIGHT was founded in October 2012 and over a year later it has grown tremendously. FIRST2FIGHT is a registered boxing club under USA Boxing, where Alex Ventura is a licensed level 1 coach.
