I started boxing when I was 23. I received professional boxing training at the age of 26. I'm currently 27 now and I teach some friends of mine how to box. I do understand the science behind boxing although I've never been an amateur or professional myself.
Our sessions will normally start with conditioning and running. We will then move on to learning footwork and the basic jab. Afterwards I will teach the different types of punches and walk you throw how to properly throw them and how to defend yourself as well. The workouts and time spent on each workout will depend on your specific needs.
I enjoy seeing people learn a new skill that they can take with them throughout life. This skill teaches discipline and it builds up your confidence in and outside of the ring as well.
The physical shape that you get it in is only a plus to the mental fortitude being built within you.
When I decided to start boxing I came across many problems with my trainers, they expected intermediate work from someone that didn’t even know the basics of boxing. I was on the bridge of giving up until I came across Marquise. Marquise gave me the opportunity to learn boxing from the skill level I was previously at, I say previously because Marquise definitely helped me improve from nothing to something. Marquise wants to see improvements and dedication at all times, he inspires you to want to do better and to try your best at all times.
My typical process for working with new students is to start with a 45 minute warm up. Do some running or walking. 3 rounds of jump rope. Teaching Footwork and punches.
I’ve been in the gym boxing for 2 years but recently decided to take my passion further and train for the amateurs.
