In this video retired Naval pilot, Jason Degroot, talks about his experience with boxing coach Joe Vargas at the Arena gym.
Hi, I’m Jason Degroot, I have been going to the gym here for about two years, I’ve been with coach Joe for about five years. Originally from New Jersey. Went in the military, still boxing in college at the Naval Academy. Got stationed out here in San Diego and I found coach Joe probably about 10 years ago. Transferred to another duty station, came back about five years ago. Ran into coach Joe, knew he was coming here and decided to join up here, I’ve been here ever since.
