What do you love about boxing? How did you get into training? What are you fighting for?
Boxing has been my life since I was twelve years old. It guided me into every single area of my life that I have been in, and am currently in. I was just always getting ready for a fight, that’s all I can remember.
Describe your style of teaching.
Dirty. I teach technique and give my students a background to that technique so they are not just throwing punches aimlessly. I teach people how to react in an actual boxing match, because you can get fit while actually learning how to fight too. I believe in teaching actual boxing, and not just “fit boxing”.
Favorite type of music to play during class?
Nostalgic “pump up”music like “Sandstorm”
