    Mike is very professional and loves what he does which makes it good to learn from him. I let him know somethings I couldn’t do with my left knee and he adjusted his teaching for it. He is patient and makes sure you are doing the right thing. I highly recommend taking classes with him.

    Miguel has to be the best trainer I’ve ever worked with. His patience, flexibility and guidance are a rarity. He makes an effort to really get to know you, and is as invested in your goals as you are. I began working with Miguel when I was at my lowest in regards to self confidence, and in the process he helped me not give up on believing I could change. He held me accountable but met me where I was and worked with me to get to my goal. Miguel is one of the main reasons I was able to complete the New York City Marathon. He’s amazing and the best investment you can make.

    Kru Miguel is very experience teacher. He works hard to make sure that I learn well the moves and techniques. I really enjoy the hard work. I got to learn about Kru that each student is very special to him.

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

First we ask the student what their goals are. All the students train the same drills however depending on what that students particular goals are we make adjustments to the drills being worked on. So as not to discourage but to motivate the student.

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

Group classes $200 a month

Private Sessions $60 per session

How did you get started teaching?

after retirement from competition the passion to share what I learned with others motivated me to become a Kru. 

What types of students have you worked with?

Men, women and children as young as 5 years old.

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

Take time to research. Make sure to find a trainer with REAL credentials and certified. Check his or her background to make sure that all that they claim is true. 

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

Becoming a fighter. The ring isn't for everyone sometimes people think it's easy because of what they see on TV and the movies, but they do not understand the sacrifice, and dedication needed to get in the ring. All fitness goals can be acheived with team work meaning that students and clients have to have faith in their coach and never be affraid to ask questions, the only stupid question is the one you don't ask.
