    I had my first boxing lesson with Ryan today. It was an outstanding workout. Ryan is an excellent teacher and communicator. He is very patient. As a newcomer to boxing, I greatly appreciate Ryan's work.

    I've been working with Ryan for the last year and I am very pleased with my progression. He pays attention to details and very patient with his students.

    Ryan is a highly skilled fighter with a rare talent for teaching. He personalizes his lessons based on what the student wants, what their goals are, and what he sees as helping them the most. I have found him to be very professional, friendly, and encouraging while able to spot holes in my technique and sparring that have greatly improved my fighting. I highly recommend him for anyone, from beginner to seasoned.


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

This is dependent upon the student's experience level in martial arts. I'm experienced working with people with 0 experience to those who earn a living through martial arts. I suit my instruction and workout to the ability of the client. That said, the vast majority of my students are beginners, and together we discuss the student's goals, then set down the path toward achieving them.  

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I've been involved in martial arts for 6+ years. I've got 25 fights in Muay Thai, kickboxing, boxing, and MMA. Additionally, I hold a master's degree and am equipped to treat everyone professionally and with respect.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

It equates to roughly $1/minute.

How did you get started teaching?

I reached a level of proficiency in martial arts which earned me the respect and trust of my coaches, peers, and students. I've earned my stripes both in the ring through competition, and in the classroom through teaching martial arts classes and training individuals to help them reach their goals. 

What types of students have you worked with?

Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently had lunch with a student to celebrate 1 year of training together. This student decided a year ago to make some life changes that started with health and fitness. As we got the ball rolling, other things in his life began to change, and as the year went on, his health improved, he decided to start his own business, and he's got a baby on the way! In a very short time frame, I witnessed this student transform going from being unhappy to motivated to within a year's time becoming his own boss and taking control of his fate. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Ask lots of questions and do some research on the teacher's background. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Have a clear understanding of their goals. Do they want to be able to defend themselves? Or are they more interested in the strength and conditioning aspects of boxing and martial arts training? What in them is driving the pursuit of studying boxing and martial arts?
