GRAND OPENING 24 HR GYM
FOR THE BUDGET MINDED PERSON AND ATHLETE

We are a USA Boxing Registered Club, USA Karate Member and Kickboxing Coach.
Head Instructor Gregg Palzer Bio below.
I started with some Judo and then Shotokan Karate at the age of 13.5 years old. I enjoyed both, but continued with the Karate.
I have lost friends from Queens NY to drugs, crime and violence I look to help the Youth of Lebanon, Oregon and the surrounding communities stay out of trouble along that narrow safe road. To help like you have been helped and praise the Lord in everything we do.
I have been training in the martial arts for 36 + years teaching for 35+ of that. I started as an assistant instructor under World Champion Tokey Hill, the first American WUKO World Champion. I then became an instructor and eventually his head instructor in NY.
At the age of 20 I started boxing at the Westbury PAL for about a year. Since that age I started delving more into boxing and kickboxing. One of my main sparring partners at the time was Derek Panza. He was the ISKA Full Contact World Champion and held both the PKF and USKBA world titles as well. Derek is undefeated as a professional boxer.
At the age of 24 I was training for winning my 4th State title after having a very serious injury, in which doctors told me I wouldn’t be able to fight again, I was able to rehab with a Dutch trained Physical therapist. After training and coming back to win that 4th title, I hit a cross roads and decided to apply to a premiere Dutch PT program that had just opened up for Americans in the Netherlands.
While over in the Netherlands I was able to watch and train with some K-1 style kickboxing fighters and had a great time. I also was teaching Karate there, and have many friends and students we go back to visit. After coming back after 2.5 years, I was a physical therapist and was able to devote some more time to training and helping teach at my instructor’s school.
I have helped in the training of numerous State, Regional, National a International Champions… and a World Champion and Golden Glove Champion Billy Finegan, (He was an exceptional student I even saw at an early age, always very self motivated and determined).
It was my dream to have a full service facility to help train and rehab the entire fighter, from the ground up. Most people don’t realize the specialty of the Martial Artist/ Boxer/ Kickboxer as person/athlete and the rehabilitation process that they need, not just any Therapist or Chiropractor can meet their needs.
Currently, at Ringside Rehab we have been open for about 5 years in February. We have produced 15+ Oregon State Martial Art's Champions, about 20+ local and Regional Martial Arts Title winners, 2 International and National Champions from the Arnold Schwarzenegger Sport's Festival Fighting Champions and in Boxing a 2015 Regional and Oregon State Silver Gloves Champion. One IKF PKB Kickboxing World Champion and helped produce a World University Games Champion. With God's help, yours and with our students hard work and determination we will keep producing fine athletes and fighters, and eventually some of these will become Professional Fighters as well as Professional People to be Champions of Mind, Body and Spirit.
We also offer services in weight loss training, strengthening and conditioning for competitive sports and training in Martial Arts (Karate and Kickboxing) and self defense. Dr. Gregg Palzer has many years of experience as an amateur and professional instructor and fighter. And as a martial artist himself he can help Martial Artists with their special needs and injuries.
Call us today at 541-223-2090 for an appointment or for signing up for a martial arts class. We now offer Karate Birthday parties and Ninja Birthday parties.
Ringside Rehab looks forward to increase our Competition team for state, national and international events.
