About this pro

My name is Hasani Washington and I teach Boxing*, Fitness Kickboxing, and Muay Thai. 

Specifically, Sityodtong Muay Thai, a traditional style from Thailand that is named after it's founder Grandmaster Kru Yodtong Senanan. The Sityodtong Style is a smart, technical style. It utilizes techniques that conditions the opponent to do what YOU want them to do.

-Boxing and Muay Thai are great full body workout, especially Muay Thai which utilizes Knees and Elbows. This will strengthen your legs, shred your abs and work your shoulders and upper arms.

-In addition to getting a great workout you'll learn effective self-defense techniques. If you're looking to hop in the ring we can practice more competition techniques.

I can come to you and bring the pads or you can come to the Martial Arts studio on the corner of Buffalo and Smoke Ranch where there is a full Boxing ring, hanging bags, weights, standing bags, machines, it's fully equipped so I am truly able to give you the BEST workout!

Call or Text or Email me to set up an appointment now. Appointment times vary from 30 mins to an hour and a half. I can be available throughout the day for those with tricky work schedules.

I look forward to working with you!

*Box n' Burn Certified Boxing Trainer

I get to build self-confidence and good health by teaching people how to defend themselves. People trust me with the most precious thing they have, their bodies, and I oblige by making them faster, healthier, stronger, and more resilient. 

In most cases, people don't want to get in shape for Spartan races or MMA fights, they just want to able to run around with their kids or not feel so sluggish during the day. I love that I help give people their lives back.

    Hasani is amazing and great with kids. So patient and a great role model. He really takes the time to get to know the kids and ties martial arts into their everyday lives. Peter the owner is caring and is just a really nice guy. Such a great experience.

  • Zeina Rousan

    They go above and beyond your typical martial arts or fitness establishment, because they make skill, strength, intensity, and nutrition coaching all relevant to our bodies, brains, and physics. Plus they’re super welcoming and truly care. Special shout out to Hasani who is one of the best trainers I’ve had. He knows how to meet your level but also challenge you and is just a great person to be around in general.

FAQs


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

For a new student we start with the fundamentals. Stance, Hand Position, what's called the "Stalk", breathing and then how to strike, in that order. Next we work some basic combinations to get you into the flow. 

Depending on skill level I normally like to start with the basics, then depending on what each individual person's natural abilities brings to the table. For example, for someone with strong arms I'll start with solid punch combos. Dancers and Soccer players are generally great kickers so I build strong kick combos then work up. 

I always want to give you solid technique before we start with using them for conditioning and self-defense techniques to insure safety.


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

For starters, I went to school double majoring in Mechanical Engineering and Political Science, minoring in Philosophy. It is my love of engineering and physics that helped me really dive into Martial Arts. I realized everything I learned in school about energy and motion is present at every point of our lives. I think it's cool I can use these forces to give you a challenging workout or teach an advanced kick.

More Directly related, I also work at a gym called FitLife Fusion that does Neuro-Focused Fitness, that is to say, we  do mobility Drills and general fitness exercises to heal or strengthen the body through stimulation of the nervous system. 

By working with the Brain and Nervous system we are able to increase flexibility, overall mobility, get you out of pain!

How did you get started teaching?

I started working at a Fitness Kickboxing studio in Philadelphia about 3 years ago and have been going strong ever since!


What types of students have you worked with?

Working in fitness I've been with almost every age: Young (under 18), Adults of all ages including seniors 65+ and everybody type: Thin, Tall, overwieght, multiple injuries, etc. 

Working with people with Injuries are my specialty. I know plenty of modifications to tailer your workout so that it doesn't hurt you.


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

Certifications are important. They must KNOW the body, meaning having extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and the bodies metabolic processes, not just weight lifting or how to punch hard. In my opinion, if your trainer can't tell you how food is broken down in the body for energy, from start to finish, doubt there knowledge of the body and ability to truly help you. 


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

Think about what it is you REALLY want and if you're COMMITTED to making that change. If not you'll start knowing you won't stick with it and as soon as you start to really feel the burn, you'll rationalize that "change" is not worth all the push ups or sit ups you have to do.
