About this pro

Fighting reveals both your Strengths and Weaknesses. Here at discipline or desire we build you up Physically and Mentally. We don't just create Fighters, we create Life Winners. 

Our bodies consist of the eight (8) limbs we need to effectively defend ourselves. I enjoy seeing people  growth as they learn hiw to use the "weapons" that are always  with them. I love seeing people do the moves they never imagined being able to do. The excitement  on my client faces, brings me so much joy!

    I love it! It was definitely something new for me and I was up for the challenge. Once you have a great trainer like I did you wouldn't regret it.

    Laz is an AMAZING instructor ! He has 20+ years experience in the fighting industry & it shows. He’s knowledgeable, super effective, knows when to push you & when not to. His lessons are intense but if you’re serious then it’s absolutely worth it. One of the most challenging but exhilarating things I’ve ever tried.

    Each lesson was personalized for my growth.

    I took my shirt off at the beach for the first time in years! The best thing is the unexpected results from his crazy workouts. The creativity keeps me guessing, but the impact is consistent. He also is constantly looking for ways to get me to the next level. I'm never bored! Sometimes I try to avoid him or quit lol... and then he motivates me to take one more step or do one more rep. One of the best decisions I've made and has transformed my fitness journey.

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

New clients are asked to complete  a questionnaire, so I can access their skills and determine  the best course of action to train them and help them achieve  their goals.

The plan is adjusted according  to the clients progress and any changes the client might have regarding what they want to achieve. 

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

I am a Certfied Instructor under Kru Hamza and Kru Steven, Maisonets Camp. They've both had extensive training from Thai instructors in Thailand. They bought back the authentic first hand training and I learned under that curriculum.

Since 2005, I've been a Licensed Instructor through the United States Muay Thai Association (U.S.M.T.A).
