World renowned boxing manager and coach John Rooney Jnr has installed a Tekken Tag Tournament 2 arcade machine at his London gym to help his fighters improve reflexes and hand-eye coordination.
Rooney’s Gym owner John Rooney Jr said: “It’s one thing to get your body fit but it’s equally important to train the mind as well. I know a number of boxers who play fighting games like Tekken and I was surprised to see a noticeable improvement in their reflexes and hand-eye coordination. We’ve installed the arcade machine in Rooney’s gym as I am a firm believer in video games and the benefits they have for fighters’ reflexes and reaction times. These games are a great addition to a fighter’s arsenal of training tools.”
Boxers battle it out at Rooney’s Gym on a Tekken Tag Tournament 2 arcade machine which has been installed to help improve fighters’ reflexes. The game will be released on Sept 14th for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3
