Green has joined Joondalup’s ATI Martial Arts Academy as its boxing mentor.

Kids are able to meet and train with the four-times world titleholder at a number of workshops that offer bully management strategies and skills.

More than 100 children turned out for one of the workshops held at ATI’s Mercer Lane gym recently.

ATI director Tony Curtis was proud to have WA’s most recognised boxer on board.

‘Danny is an awesome presenter and coach, he articulates the skills well and is a very down to earth, colourful character with a commanding presence,’ he said.

‘He had everyone’s respect and attention from start to finish.’

Curtis expected big things from the program, with the next session to be held in September. ‘This is going to be huge ” who better (than Danny Green) to endorse this and tell the world it is not cool to be a bully?’

Curtis said it was not about teaching children to fight, but teaching them to defend themselves when they had no other option.
