I Taught My Gay BFF To Fight In 30 Days

I Taught My Gay BFF To Fight In 30 Days

Show Video

I'm. Gonna learn how to box I have. Never ever been in a fight before at the end of 30 days I'm, gonna fight somebody for the first time right now Cody's like the little baby he won't hurt a fly I think a lot of times as like fan people, we don't really use our bodies, a lot, in aggressive. Ways and I'm not speaking for everybody I've never tapped into that side of being rough with my body and being aggressive with somebody so it's gonna be really interesting for me this all started because gaudiya was staying with me when. We first became friends and one of the first conversations we ever had was, about how I have this social anxiety, about leaving my house sometimes, and I think that it's something that's shared with a lot of people within the queer community in, that, we feel like we have to hide we have to be in the shadows we have to tone down our. Queerness. And I think that that is a reality that a lot of us really. Face, though I hope got a yo like you know I don't feel really comfortable and, he was like you know what like when you're with me like I got your back like you can be as gay as you want to be I feel like everybody, in this world should feel like they could be themselves when, they walk outside, and not feared to be attacked I always thought that that was really cool and I immediately knew like that's my brother like we're gonna be friends forever this is very personal to me because I have a gate system and not so long ago she, was walking outside to, her place and she, was attacked and the first thing this person said is if you're gonna act like a man I'm gonna treat you like one I proceeded. To attack her until, this happened to my sister and having that conversation with curly turns, out that this happens, a lot within the community, people in my life I've always been like don't worry like I got your back at your back but I'm like Windham as an adult and I have my own back this is the purpose of this video not, only, to Train curly, to fight to defend himself to show awareness on what's going on within the LGBTQ community I'm training for, 30 days straight, with Manny. Pacquiao's, strength, trainer, Justin, fortunes I'm the owner of fortune. Boxing gym, Hollywood California how many you've been fighting a 30 years I've never fought anybody in my life I'm like the most gentle I'm like oh my ladybug, like I'm like the most hippie as so, I'm wondering could. I get to the level one thing we, beat the hippie ivy. This. Is some a leash like I'm about to learn how to fight with them back when I was 15 years old and I was in high school I used to be a boxer what are the things that boxing, taught me is to be, confident, within myself I knew that could protect myself I was not afraid anywhere, I went and I want to be able to give that gift to Kurt you want to get to live when it comes down though you have to defend yourself. Right. And. Waiter will, teach you everything I'll teach you some more. That. Dirty super. Anxious about the whole thing because I'm like I don't want to look dumb I want, to win talk about what the month might look like just, follow me. What's. Wrong outlook crying, let, us swing easy, maybe. Even you regular. Stuff but what do you need for me like what what, should I be bringing to the table beside, you should just have you know just a clean clean. Slate no. Man and we'll just teach you from basics, when you're with that boss. I'm gonna pray really hard I'm, gonna work really hard I'm gonna light a lot of candles and I'm gonna have a long conversation with Jesus because I really, need to win this fight after we done with this video he's gonna be a monster I'm not trying to get fuckin the face you see I'm pretty good faces is day 1 it's 6:30 in the morning I'm, gonna go and train new credit right now super. Excited, to solve it you're maladaptive. Boy the first week I have been training every day except, for Wednesdays. And Sundays and, it's, been kind. Of intensive. I've. Never used my body in a physical, way like that where I had to like punch and it's interesting cuz like I kind of liked it I kind of thought it was like really cool to be able to be like yeah I'm pumped you up confident first day clearly is learning how to throw a punch how to hook, justin has him on the mid justin, is like you could tell that this man is an experienced, man he's been doing it for a very long time.

My. Knuckles, were like bleeding like right, off the bat like immediately, and I was like we're doing some damage we're doing some things all right so today was day 1 it, was super amazing it was super dope I learned. A lot I'm. Very, sore and very tired when I walk into the gym I feel, like it's very masculine energy, I'm immediately, comforted, because it's Hamra foolish, Justin's wife she is just like this beautiful, warm energy, back in. 2009. I, was hired to fight Kim Kardashian, and that's celebrity boxing Matt and I flew out here trained, with him and then we, fell in love and, ever since then it's been bliss, we describe our gym is like we're one big family but we're one big large dysfunctional. Family you know once you're in here you're family but it's tough you know you're gonna leave your sweat crying tears it's gonna be full-on, it ranged from being nervous about having to be all men and not, only dealing, with males with dealing with males who are there to fight, so it was definitely, nervous. But what was really cool too is it everybody, there kind of just let's you do your thing like nobody, really is watching, you have that vibe that boxing, love I feel like everybody, goes over there to train people I serious over there working out with Justin is dope. He, is like this huge, man with. Like this heavy accent, well I hope. Sam. And. Holder there and you can feel the. Strength, when he barely like taps you like this man is wrong. But, he also wanted me to learn how to breathe so he would make me run like the running part from you with heart is good like we would come on Saturdays, early in the morning and it was hard it was hard to keep up but it look. Good. It's. Hard I was like if he makes me run one. More lap yo, C Mon Modi he also had me on the punching bag the punching bag was dope I never thought that I could punch a punching. Bag. Softer, softer softer, we. Did practice unlike the feed, bad thing but like I don't care how long our practice on that thing for like I could not pick up the rhythm. Sometimes. Sometimes, you know Tamara was like I got a fight coming up pretty soon I think curly should go and see this and I'm like that's that's a great idea let's take curly over so like that he could see how this rose and he could see how a real fight is. So, the fight was. Interesting. And intent and there, I was being like I don't want to do that I wanted him to get a feel what a fight night is it's pretty cool. It. Was really cool to see people live within their normative glory like when they did good they did good I also want him to see like it, doesn't matter how a person, looks some people could look scary and they could look built but that doesn't matter fighting, is all about skill it was so dope to see hammer, fight it was nice to see that somebody from like my gym family, basically, going in and, getting down. The. Second week I could see his punches get a little bit more sharper, he, knows how to throw the punches, his hooks are really, good his overhand, right is the strongest, are even, better than good.

I Hate. Spying. My. First part was up against this amazing. Fighter sweet, spirit, sweet soul and then Franky cardis like really nice I'm like oh my god I'm a bum die yo you're training for a fight and I want him to be more aggressive. Have. You ever seen the Incredibles not to compare, him to Elastigirl but like Elastigirl moves like this and like you're, like that. Was Frankie like I could not land, a punch like he was too fast, and I, was. Like cracking, up and every time I was fight I would just be cracking up because I'm like this is ridiculous like what am i I. Did. Land one punch and, I was immediately like like, oh my god I'm so sorry. When, you spar they put like this huge helmet on you I can't breathe in this helmet I can't see in this helmet I can't see it I have my glasses off you have to remember to like I'm super, blind without my glasses and if you're claustrophobic this. Thing is not for you like you will not like this hey man I go and spar with each other but it's like I also, don't have it in me to really. Go, hard, on Kurt, it got especially, hard when I had to fight. My brother gotta go so we go in bell, rings were. In there guy do is a trained. Fighter he, was in the military he knows how to handle himself, I. Never. Seen curly in that light you know I got a lot of love for curly curly always had my back so I got this brotherly, love for. Curly that is like I never see myself throwing, a punch at him he lands, a punch that. Sends, my head back like, a little egg and when I come back up he's. Laughing and, if you know cardio's lab you know his laugh is loud. As. Even. Though I laugh but, in my head I was also thinking it's curly I can't believe I just did that to Carly, I don't know this much I'm, laughing at, me right now so then I like, this. So I get mad and I start swinging we start going at it. This. Part was over it, was interesting, when I took off my helmet, I hear Tamara say Guardians, bleeding curly you mean patio bleed. It. Was a mixture of it. Being like oh shit like I didn't even like. A punch like that and then it being like I didn't. Need I want to learn that on someone who I like love is my family, there's, no Freddie no no. I. Never got a bloody nose in my life I don't want to get emotional again but, I think that punch really, opened, up a lot of different doors in, my mind that, I didn't. Know. We're still there every time I hit you yeah I felt like pure shit inside. Yeah, I don't like it like it's it's weird it. Is a weird feeling like I'm doing it cuz I have to defend myself. When. The car and then curly gets emotional, and you starts crying in a way I also understood. Because it's like you gotta hit somebody you care, about having, to hurt somebody that I'm really connected to hurt, it's a weird place that to like tap into as a human being like you're.

Just Like, well, you know all day long you're like oh go. To work I gotta feed my dog gonna do this gonna pay my bills and then like those two hours we're like I gotta get aggressive and, you gotta reach into a place and you hear like oh. I'm. Not gonna lose, like I'm not gonna do this delicious complete. Had. Been very open about growing up like in an abusive household, things got better for me but it was like a thing that I had forgotten had, affected, me so deeply and, I didn't realize that it was still. A huge part of me which I never thought I didn't think I was gonna feel like that I thought um but yeah I thought we done this before tonight nah that was also like somebody I care about like and I was 30. Training. Continued, I kept going I was still working out camera, hits me up she was like I found, somebody he's perfect. I basically wanted to fight somebody who, was a had. Never trained before and B, had never been in a fight before because I wanted it to be a little bit more even he's like almost the same height as curly he's never fought before and we, could start training, him but he's also a marathon, runner look at we like I'm out here I just thought being a potato a year ago I was worried that was like nah none there's no weight I don't think this is a good idea all the talk was about him, being like a marathon, runner you know he's. A marathon, runner you. Know he's really buff you, know he's really beautiful and I'm like Nick what. I don't what. About me I'm like curly, you needed me Alex, I'm thinking, like you're this is a time that you need to be aggressive son. I found. You on Instagram, but now I see my real life building, boo hi how you know incredi sees them he's like dying you want to get tea I'm super, nervous I'm super like I'm excited, but. I. Expected, more like a combative. Stuff but you guys. Ready. I was like what, are you doing like you need to be like harder.

With Him because when I met Alex all I wanted to do was be like ah what's, up like how are you. We. Hit it off right away, Gallo is like don't, be his friend like what are you doing sobbing, curly, for a second and just be a fighter. And. There are not like whenever I saw videos of him training or him fighting or I would, watch him fight while I was jogging I kind, of just felt like oh I could take this guy like I could take him so Kurt he had to travel he. Went down to Mexico for a couple of days so he missed some days of training and he also had to go to Florida. When I got back justin was training Pacquiao, so he had to leave so I trained with Marc Justin's BFF and then the amazing Kenneth, hunt I know he's like pretty busy so we've been trying a little more consistent. But, you know we've been doing the best up kid. When. He came back we're like you know what we got to kick this into high gear because, the fight is around the corner. I saw. A, shift, in curly I first he was to like nice and and. Painting, around and smiling, and joking around a lot to apologize for anything. No, there we go, ever since the rappers. Apologizing. Bro I saw a change, in him to be a little bit more aggressive. Everybody. Was like you have this fight coming up you were sparring, for several, days leading up to this, fight I went up against three girls, I was super. Intimidated. And then on the flip there's the whole thing of like the way that men are taught or at least the way that we should be taught not to hit women or get violent with women it's, ingrained, in us I'm like listen credibly don't feel bad because, either way when I used to fight I used, to spar with women too so I was like I don't want to hit a girl but also like I'm scared, of you I went. Up against Tamra she is trained she knows had a fight she teaches other people had a fight mostly Tamara Tamara is a tough one, she's aggressive she's, tough I can see that the first punch landed and it was a hard punch, I saw, her. Waddle, and I was like whoa he's, he stumbles, up but he feels bad again, it's a mixture like I didn't know that I could do that but then also like, no. It's. Definitely like the two sides of me battling, it out and I also went up against other girls they've been training for a long time it was interesting to see women put themselves in harm's way in order to teach me how, to be stronger, after, that I went, outside and I. Saw kriti crying again how do you feel though, honestly. Yeah I have like a lot of mixed emotions again. Hey, boy I just liked it it's, kind of like um like. Triggering, it's like a lot of different, like. I know these girls are like trying, to help me be a better person and I'm like I'm gonna have to hurt you to do it but I started, crying when I do it when I fought with you yeah don't. Feel bad for nobody because, when you're out there in the street nobody's gonna feel bad for you and, they're, not gonna think twice and hurting you or even taking a life out there here and we see that you, see that well then just I came back to take over. It's, hard to be like oh we're gonna train you but you're gonna fight within 30 days because there's a lot of things that you need to learn we're getting down to the. End actually. I've learned a lot but I most like still, not. Used to like, fighting, I'll go in and I do it and I'm like that. Was so I was so cool like I could use my body like that was so cool and then, I wake up the next morning to come back and I'm like. So. Before the fight I could see Carly, being different. At work leading, up to the fight I had crazy. Anxiety. Like I couldn't work I couldn't think, straight crazy, crazy anxiety.

Gatos It's excitement, it's, and this is also a. Crucial, pivotal. Moment for you and yourself. What. Are you doing. Getting. Out of energy the. Anxiety. You're. Running around the office and, he was just like trying to just. Like get that energy out like he didn't know what to do or how to feel and stuff like that I just wanted to make him feel better. Was. There 10. The, night before the fight it's. Really like the day that we've all been, waiting for everybody, who's trained me I got. Contacts and. So I can see you're, not supposed to wear them by the way when you fight I'm kind of sad like I thought I'm gonna go in and I have to fight somebody I just tense mom we already have a winner, hopefully, it's me hope. It's me I actually. Asked, to take the day off the, day of the fight because. I just wanted to reflect and I literally just sat here in my house I laid on my couch and I just reflected. A lot and just thought a lot and prayed a lot is now, surely an hour and a half away to our fight I just gave myself a little pep talk in, the mirror and I think that I never, in a million years imagined. That I would. Be here I gotta kick his ass. And. I don't feel happy thinking that I'm just trying to amp myself, up. Before. The fight I wanted a surprise credit, I'm gonna do something special for him you know and I want him to walk into that ring I want him to be proud. I. Got. Those boxing. Trunks I took into an embroidery. Then. I had them stitch the Salvadorian, flag in the front and I put the curly show in the back which was cool man like I just want him to be happy and proud like that for me like regardless of anything, like anything anything anything whether, I win or whether I lose like we did it I trained so hard I did give it my all I, gave it my absolute all, week and geared up he had a wait in the locker room I was making. Sure like everything is ready set go there's, the point where the audience, is cheering I, think Scotty I asked, who's here to see curly and the crowd is loud and I cringe. Cringe. So, hard because I want to make sure that Alex knows that he has support too and then they, ask who's here to see Ali. People. Screamed and I was like gasps I'm so happy that people are here for him like I'm so happy that people here this behave I'll walk into the room he goes like how's Alex doing I'm like don't, worry about Alex. Right now like you're gonna fight this guy right now I was sitting down trying to talk to him that you need to have this fighter instinct, you need to have this animal instinct, right now right now when you get in the ring yeah, are not cool bro yeah but I just want to make sure he's okay I was. There warming up in the locker room. They. Introduced the fighter. In, the blue corner, from. They. Do this thing when people are about to fight they make you poop gloves with the opponent, and I look him dead in the eye and my head I'm like okay. Like I'm so excited to see him like let's do this, Alex's, face was like that's, a huge game on and I'm like oh shit, Carly was not game on it started. Once. That bell rang that guy was on it like he was on a mission. He, was a bull like 30 seconds, in I think, he landed a couple of punches I saw him Curly's head fly, back and I remember thinking like. Just. Like in flow more like that shit hurt and I'm in the corner I'm also thinking about McMahon there's a lot of people from BuzzFeed and I used to sing something like this I started.

To One point black out a little bit he, knocked my contact, out so there I was blind. What, I could see was the. Crowd going, from like what. -. Like oh. And. I'm thinking like you should have more faith in me. Your, first fight you're, not thinking about technique. Even the other guy both one was just going like this none of them Bob them weed none of them blocked the referee like pulls me he's like are you okay breathe, breathe, and I'm like I am breathing the. Second round came in and that's, when curly started landing more his right hook I saw, curly natural like animalistic, start coming up. But. I don't, give up I've never quit anything I, never give up so I keep going he is ruthless, he. Is a, good, fighter you, know Alex I don't know where it got him got him a couple of times and after that curly couldn't see anymore I'm blacking out again I'm like I can't see anything I didn't, have time to catch my breath let, alone open my eyes let him I'll be able to see and I'm falling against the ropes again but I also still did not want to give up so I kept coming back up and the referee kept being like are you good are you ok and, I'm like I got this I got this so we keep going at one point I tried doing the trick where I hug him so that he thought he, pushed me off I think and he kept going and I was like this is intense, and so the ref grabs, me he's like you're done and I was like ok. I'm done like. I I can't do this and it was a moment, of defeats, and it was a moment of feeling like all of that for, this moment to lose. It's. A mixture, of emotions you know but one thing that I could say is god, damn clearly got heart he's getting punched by a grown-ass, man but. He never hit the mat this was Carly's first fight and to, be honest with you I'm proud of him I was in the state of shock my body was in shock I was in shock so I go I'm like I just need a moment to collect myself I just need to figure out what happened and as I'm sitting down I'm, like nauseated.

I'm Extremely. Dizzy. I can't, focus and, I'm like I'm about to throw up. And. I. Literally, start to throw up all over myself this is not where we thought this video was gonna go but we're like are you okay what can I do did it and, I could not stop throwing up. They. Thought I had a concussion and they were like you need to go to the doctor you have to go to the ER and make sure you don't have a concussion and so we went. I don't. Think we need to go I think I'm fine. I think, I was just panicking already. Else uncanny, thought, was. That's. Busy, I got, my ass handed to me my body hurts but, I don't feel like he. Didn't deserve his victory and I don't feel like I, didn't. Try, it was good I knew, that something had changed I, knew, that after that fight I was a different person it, also changed me spiritually, it's okay if you are a. Fighter it's okay if you're not a fighter it's okay if you. Have other ways of surviving, I use comedy, I used. Allies. To, survive as a queer person for, so long you could walk around with his head high. Because he did something that most, men, today do. Not have the balls to do sometimes, you win and sometimes you don't and it doesn't make you less than it doesn't make me weak they both had a great fight they both trained, hard yeah one man was better than the other he took an out but guess what that's life we take else how will I be going back party, man I do. Feel a lot more confident, I do feel like if I need to defend myself I can do this, I recognize. That I'm capable, of doing a lot of things that I never knew, that, I, would be capable of we did this fight for a good cause Alex. Did also did it for a good cause I'm proud of both of them he walked into that ring he, walked in there with his head up high, I hate fall. And you're supposed to get scared you're supposed to be afraid to do things you're, supposed to fail and you're supposed to get up and do it again or do better be the best version of yourself.

This video is great, go curly. But can we just pause for a moment and just celebrate the fact that, that woman got to punch Kim Kardashian

this is such a lovely video!

❤️❤️

Love to Gadiel for helping Curly. But one request someone tell us when Curly and Alex start dating. Would look so cute

I love how in touch they are with their emotions, real men

they really seem into each other. also, what happened to that reality-kinda videos they we're doing about the pero like crew? they teased one episode about when buzzfeed fired a lot of people but never uploaded it

12:09 “ I just stopped being a potato a year ago”

I could've sworn the title was "Curly learns to fight in 30 days" am I trippin

Oh Curly

Yeah yeah whatever, are we not gonna talk about Curly's calf muscles ay 9:49 though?!

Great job Curly! What an amazing journey. Thank you for sharing. You are Phenomenal!

When gadiel showed Curly the shorts I CRIED IN THE OFFICE

best video ever !

maybe im crying omg this hit me in the feels i LOVE THIS!!

I love this, but it's a little ironic that curly is learning to fight from the man who trains the man that wants to kill gays...

I'm not a fan of the clickbait-y title but this video was so beautiful, I love Curly and it was very cool to watch him go on this journey with Gadiel by his side.

Curly and Gadiel are so pure, and I love their representation of healthy non-toxic masculinity. It's so refreshing and nice to see. ❤

Yesssss curly yesss I'm so proud I was about to cry when curly started to cry I was like nooo

Yo go off curly, you are impressive!

Man Curly is the MAN. Great humble person with the heart of a lion.

Wow, I really want to see videos like this. Curly made me cry whenever he cried, and I’m never usually like that. As a queer person, it really hit me that being attacked in public just for being who we are is the sad reality and it made me want to learn to defend myself. Seeing Curly’s determination and growth was really inspiring. Love you Curly and Gadiel

Why can't it be Taught My BFF.....Why it gotta be Gay BFF?!

This is such good content

This was so emotional I loved this!!

Two of my favorites! What an awesome video! So proud of u Curly!

Ugh. As a gay, I’ve felt this

Curly did us proud ❤️

Weird title but cool vid

Damn I forgot about that Kim Kardashian fight.

Ultimate Friendship Goals!

This is one of my favorite Pero Like videos. Very inspirational. Proud of you Curly! Love Gadiel's and Curly's friendship. ❤

What a great lesson, and a beautiful person, Curly

your big inspiration Gadiel for being a good friend to curly and great brother to your sister and that person who did that to your sister karma going get him I'm native American and we believe that you put either good or bad it'll come back and hit you with it either through you or through your love ones and one more thing Gadiel thanks for your service thanks for serving our country that you put your life on the line to protect every single person in USA respect my Latino solider

I love you guys you inspired me to be better person huge fan of all of you

I'm proud of you Gadiel and o hope your sister is doing okay I know how curly felt I got it by drunk driver I told my family but the part I didn't tell them is that I was with my drag queen friends and drunk driver and his friend said "faget need die he was going it my friends we just hit I pushed my service dog out way and friends and I didn't move fast enough he hit me just to see theirs closed minded people and so much hatered tours LGBTQ when I got hit by the car front windshield was mashed I flu up in the air hit front car fell in the ground that should have killed me I had no scratches I think that day I had guardian angel but the 3 times I did it was when I found out I was allergic to seafood mushrooms when I went eat at red lobster I hope I can share that story to you guys some day

I feel curly should rematch!

Im so proud of you Curly! And proud of Gadiel for doing this for you! ❤

¡No estoy llorando estás llorando!

I've been crying throughout the whole video. Proud of you Curly!

did you watch Rocky before the fight? lol i would of!

i am so proud of you. such an amazing friendship

awwwwww

Curly, you fought back and you learned a great lesson. You should be proud.

Proud of yall.

I feel bad for gabe sister

Okay, wtf. I bet that homophobe that attacked Gadiel’s sister wouldn’t walk up to a man and beat him up. He seems like too much of a coward to. He just did this because he felt powerful over her, like he probably feels powerful over any woman.

WHY did this video make me SO emotional? I was on the verge of tears almost every 2 minutes. WTF.

Wtaf is wrong with people... "if you gonna act like a man imma treat you like one." So that's how he treats other men? And probably treats feminine men "like men" to. Aka if you act differently than what i'm used to i'm gonna beat you up.

I love C&G together! I want a full blown show of them trying stuff and sharing their perspectives

Keep training curly very proud of you, you got heart my g and you didn’t get dropped some gangsta shit

Curly looks like a bad ass anyways so why would anyone wanna fight him!

Oh gawd all the emotions that I am going through

I LOVE Curlys heart! Especially as a Latina. I appreciate him.

Gadiel is such a wonderful friend

Well done,Curly! I strongly believe that we learn the life lesson we are meant to learn,when we're meant to learn them. That said, I think this experience for Curly wasn't about him winning the actual fight in the ring,it was about the personal,emotional and spiritual growth within himself. And IMO...he won so much more than the actual fight in the ring because his evolution in regards to the things he learned during those 30 days, has only begun but will be useful and will last forever. :)

A lot of uhh brotherly love in this video

Gadiel is such a sweet person !!. I'm glad he supports the lgbt community and that he doesn't bully them

Im feminine and just got suspended for fighting a week ago

This was dope. Good job Curly.

It's so sad that you have to go through this to protect yourself. Mad love Curly

I love these two souls

I’m so proud of you Curly! I cried more times than I expected. Soooo Soooo proud of you, darling. You are stronger & braver than you know.

Love seeing the support everyone gives Curly in this video... especially Gadiel :) You go Curly!!!!

I love you so much Curley! You’re such an amazing person, your spirit is incredible and you’re so genuine and so kind. You are the definition of perseverance, you rise above all the obstacles handed to you. Bravo.

So proud of you Curly!

Honestly. They changed the title of the video and now I clicked

you just know these two have fucked

Curly i am so proud of you!!!! you trained so hard and that is the important part. You fought and you lost and to be able to do that you have tobe a really strong person.

I wonder if Curly would've responded better to martial arts self defense training. Boxing is aggressive but self defense using martial arts is about protecting yourself without aiming to hurt another person.

*I waited for this video for so long. soooo good!!! I cried, I laughed, I cheered aaa my heart* love you curly

"what about me"

Curly has lost weight. I love Curly.

Where’s the full fight?

Lol that title change though

I NEED A GADIEL IN MY LIFE!

No need to feel anything but happiness that was amazing. Feel proud of yourself you stretched and grew.

i love you curly you did great

Coming from someone who’s an avid fan of MMA and a part of the community this is awesome.

Pero like... i cried a lot wth. So extremely proud of you curly! Thanks for being an inspiration

Curly your amazing stay strong and never give up!!!

I totally feel where Curly was coming from when he started crying in the car. its hard to tap into an aggressive, violent side of yourself when that is just not who you are.

This video was excellent! I have lgbtq+ friends and family members and learning self defense is a a great skill. Because sometimes words are not enough but learning how to defend yourself in any situation makes you grow as a person and to have family and friends back you up as support is great as well because they always have your back. Curly I am very proud of you.

I wish I had a friend like Gadiel. What a magnificent friendship.

omg curly looks so fit

This video was powerful. I want to Thank both of you for sharing it with us. The emotions were not concocted. You watch a reality show and when people break down you feel nothing, it was real from both of you. The brotherly love you two have for one another shows how times have changed. For every son of a bitch out there, there's a Real educated individual ready to stand up for his brother. Curly, don't stop continue going to the gym. It's not about quiting it's about the continued elation of releasing the emotions. Once again, Thank You Both.

Si antes amaba a Gadiel, ahora lo amo massssss mi negro hermoso

I feel so proud that this happen

Amazing human beings

What’s wrong with just saying BFF

LOVED THIS VIDEOO

nobody: feminazis and super picky supporters: why can't it be just 'teaching my bff...' instead of gay bff -__-

Well the title wasn’t that 2 days ago so it’s obviously because they think that’ll get them more views

Currrrlllllllyyyyyy OMG I'm so proud of you

But Im dead ass crying rn....

i love this video!!

Ughhh this makes me to want to learn to fight because I don’t know how to and if given the circumstances I wouldn’t know what to even do to protect myself

woa. curly i admire you more now. i wanna do this too someday.

Curly this video made me feel so many different emotions. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Curly I’m so proud of you as a boxer you are one defeat or not. Love you ♥️

Two beautiful men. ♥️

These are mostly amazing videos, but Can't the title just be "I Taught my BFF to Fight in 30 Days"? I feel like you're using the Gay label as clickbait.

Love you Curly !!!!! You did Great

Really inspiring video!! I've been doing boxing for four months for self-defense and I feel more confident to go out (my country is a very insecure place). I really admire Curly, only 30 days and he was in a fight...!!!!

Ah, I love Perolike.

Yo this is great but if you're in a fight and you lose that means you definitely need to go back. Otherwise, how will you be strong enough to win if you need to?

YOOOOO we need a new series. CURLY FIGHTS. Next he learns BJJ!

BOOP GLOVES

I was so afraid to go to the comments and see a bunch of stuff about how violence isn't the answer blah blah blah. I'm glad people are seeing this as a way to get confidence and to protect yourself. Yay!!!

Curly, you made me cry..stay strong Luv..and beat the snot off a motherlover when they come for you!!!!!  Much Love Baaaaaaaaaby!!!!

Curly you are a beautiful man with a beautiful soul! Adrenaline dropping off can also make you throw up

Curly is sooo sweet!!!

I love this, even though i'll admit I kinda chuckled that they are training w/ the one who trains a homophobic boxer. I love their friendship--it made me realize that's how it should be, not a toned down version of yourself.

I'm so proud of you Curly!! What an inspiration to latino gay men like myself.... and all people for that matter. This video had me feeling so many emotions. I laughed, I cried, and I felt so connected to you. Thank you for sharing this with us! I'm gonna go sign up to a kick boxing class now, I ain't scared no more! If Curly did it, I could too!! ❤

This is adorable

just subscribed! I need to watch the rest of this video later. this is great!

Running at UCLA!!! Go Bruins.

this is the purest friendship i’ve seen

This video was outstanding. Bravissimo guys.

Oh my god i FEEL SO SOORY for his sister :'( that broke my heart. It's true though we get harrassed on a DAILY BASIS. I be having anxiety to leave my house every day too but I know how to defend myself so everytime a nigga tries me I call they bluff and usually they back down.

What were some of the drills that you guys learned?

I’m still so proud of him even though he lost. Keep working hard. WE LOVE YOU CURLY SO MUCH❤️

Yooooo 22:20 too 22:28 is soooo funny!! Crowd went from HURRAAYY to oohhh... L M B O!!

I love this concept. And platonic love in male friendships.

I was afraid to see this video

This makes me want to box.

Gadiel is an amazing person for helping Curly go through this journey and props to Cury for going through this life changing journey!

I have literally had bones broken by my best friends and laugh about it. Get over your whiny feelings and hit each other. You don’t have to hate each other to compete

If gadiel were gay he and curly would make a really cute couple

I'm glad you went through this experience. As a gay man we need to know how to defend ourselves. It is easier to have a gentle spirit when you know you can defend yourself when needed.

12:30 WAIIIIIITTTT Alex is fucking hot. Damn. plot twist Alex and Curly end up together after this

You know I havent watched any videos of curly in a while since buzzfeed fractured all the channels, but he looked like in pretty good shape now even at the beginning of the video. Looks like he's been taking care of himself. He may not want to go back to that gym but he seemed like he gained a lot of confidence going there.

omg... Curly.... I am so crying right now.... really....REALLY love what you do and who you are!

I cried and I love this video! ^_^

15:58 to 16:03 Facts

I LITERALLY CRIED THIS WHOLE VIDEO

Curly seems like he would be a great friend!

this is the content we need

I need a Gadiel in my life ❤️

Paused. Because I need that queer fanfic where one boxer dude falls for his opponent, who he never even wanted to fight in the first place but agrees just to be around his “opponent” more. Lol.

I cried so much watching this omg

They did change it!

Curly and Gadiel are my favorite. Best wishes for you both.

"Marry it"

Gadiel and Curly’s brotherhood makes me emotional!!

Aww Gadiel is a good friend. I wish I can have a friend like that.

curly is such a pure soul omg..

This video is amazing, i saw it several times on my feed but because of the context i was kind of refusing to watch it, but im so glad i did, this is so sweet, refreshing, content, thank you Curly and Gadiel

I fucken love you Curly! I had so many emotions watching your journey. Your spirit is amazing and that friendship you and Gadiel have is precious. From 16:00 onward I couldn’t help but laugh at your version of how it all went down. I adore you.

I love Curly's heart. And Gadiel is just the best friend ever. I love this so much!

This was such a good video..

he has heavy hands

I loved seeing curly's growth throughout the course of the video. This was such a good watch. As I often do when i watch boxing i found myself bobbing and weaving throughout the fight .

You guys literally represent love for me you guys make me so proud to be apart of the Latino community. All the messages of awareness peace and love that you are spreading to our community I am so grateful for that. Los quiero muchooooo

this is positive masculinity , boxing is beautiful and violence can be fun

I love Curly so much

Gadiel has done so many workout, body transformation, training, and/or diet videos. I love that he tries so many things!

Arriba Curly! un Abrazo Tio

1:08

wait so did he have a concussion or not??

Props for stepping into the ring my boy

Which one is the gay one

YASSS CURLY

its not often to find un latino who accepts the lgbt community, gracias Gadiel ❤️

I love their relationship .. this is everything .

It’s not ok that growing up, Boys are equipped with self defense skills and taught how to fight but women/femmes are told they will be defended by whatever man is closest. It doesn’t equip femme people to defend themselves as individuals in our society against hateful ppl or ppl who are just out for blood

first of Alex is fiiiiiiine! gawd damn! and secondly, I think him and curly would make an adorable couple! ugh my heart!

My advice for Curly: I know you may not want to do this again but you must try. Train yourself. Become stronger. The video was great and you have received this experience but definitely continue growing so you can become stronger.

You both are the sweetest
