I am currently an instructor at USA Karate in pearland. I have been teaching karate for 7 years and I have been training for 12. The style that I teach is a combination of differnt styles that my instructor learned and then taught me. I have taught students from age 5 to 50 so I am well aclamated to teach all ages, and I work really well with kids. I enjoy the workout I get when train martial arts and how it gives me self confidense, plus its really cool. I Figure if its something that I love then why not share my enjoyment for the art....

Kimberly K. says, "Kimberly Kennedy Flight Attendant "Before I began training with Ricky, I wasn't considered overweight. I had been working out most of my adult life, so I was fairly fit, but I couldn't say I was pleased with my body. I can't remember a time when I didn't believe I could stand to lose 5 or 10 more pounds. Most women between the age of 18-65 share that common theme. It appears to be permanently etched in our minds. I'm sure there are a lot of women who were like me, from size 2 thru 22 and beyond, who wished they could find a great pair of jeans that didn't include the proverbial "MUFFIN TOP." And though I read the same articles in over 15 different magazines in the last 15 years I still couldn't seem to "flatten my abs in two weeks", "lift my butt in 5 minutes a day" or get "lean thighs with 10 NEW moves" ( I dare you to look at a magazine cover right now). I tried diets, ab machines, and I even tried to get a "Smokin' Hot Body" in 90 days. Unfortunately none of those methods really worked or had any long term effect. I was left feeling defeated and unsatisfied. I needed something different. I remember, of all days, it was Thanksgiving, and a friend of mine who is very fit and looks like a model on a magazine cover, recommended I work out with Ricky. I was mildly skeptical. I wasn't really sure how working out with a trainer was going to be any different than everything else I tried, but since nothing else bought me the success I craved, I gave it a shot. WOW! I was blown away! Ricky was able to show me all the things I needed to do to get the lasting results of my dreams. Yes, I had to work at it but believe me, MEASURABLE CHANGE is a great motivator. It's even a lot of fun, especially when I try on jeans. No more "MUFFIN TOP"! The diet and fitness industry rakes in billions of dollars a year by playing on peoples emotions. They want you to believe that this NEW and IMPROVED way of working out is the one size fits all answer. Ricky taught me a realistic approach to health and fitness and he showed me what works. If you're a world class athlete looking for an edge, a parent, if you travel on business, if you if you are sick and tired of wasting time on the new fitness"FLAVOR OF THE MONTH" craze, or even if you have never worked out before, let Ricky show you how to reach your potential and meet your goals. He is well versed in the psychology and physiology of the body. He knows what it takes to STRENGTHEN, SHAPE and FUEL your body and he teaches you how it all works in harmony, one with the other. Of all of his many qualities Ricky has the UNPARALLELED ability to evaluate each client to specifically design a program that works to help you achieve YOUR individual goals. Ricky showed me how to incorporate fitness into my life. I no longer worry that I should lose 5 or 10 more pounds. I feel strong, confident, beautiful and pleased with my body. I think he's the BEST!" " Read more

James F. says, "I haven't had the chance to be trained by Parker in the past year because of Covid-19, but I truly enjoyed learning from him previously. He won't hesitate to push you harder than you think you can go, but, while having a gruff exterior, he is a keen observer of people and has the best interests of his students and clients at heart. He's also very strong at fixing and tweaking technique to make it the best possible form it can be. He great at catching small details in form, and is willing to make you do it over and over to fix and perfect it. He understands that not all training can be the "fun" stuff, like sparring and stress drills. To get to those, you need the basics done right and Parker will make sure that happens. " Read more

I started boxing when I was 10 yrs old. At 16 I made one of the US Olympic Teams. I was also one of the first to win Golden Glove Nationals at 16. As an amateur my record was 128 wins and 10 loses. As a professional my record was 69 wins 42 by knockout, 5 loses, and 2 draws. I fought for the world championship in 1980. I’ve trained amateurs, professions, and coached an Olympic team. I would love to speak by phone to any potential customers. Thank you!

Annie P. says, "Uriel is a great coach and he is extremely patient with you. After taking Muay Thai/Boxing lessons with him, my confidence has grown exponentially and I KNOW self-defense now. Being a small and petite person, I was nervous at first, but Uriel helped me overcome my shyness and made the experience extremely enjoyable. He isn't your average trainer and will break down the movements for you and has high expectations. I've also taken part of his weight training regimen, which has helped me achieve my goal of gaining more muscle mass. Whether it's for self-defense, losing weight, gaining muscle, regular cardio fitness, Uriel has the program for you! One of the best trainers I've come across in Houston and the surrounding area.

Your boxing questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much are boxing classes?

  • Wraps or gauze: $5 to $20

What are the weight classes in boxing?

The lightest class is called Strawweight and is for people that weigh 105 to 107 pounds. The largest is Heavyweight and is for people over 200 pounds.

Are boxing classes worth it?

Boxing classes are worth it if you're looking for a good whole-body workout or want to learn self-defense. Boxing is easier to learn and inexpensive compared to many gym memberships or martial arts classes.

Boxing is not only a good cardio workout, it also works out the arms, legs, and core. This fighting style also releases tension in a safe environment while helping you reach fitness goals.

How many boxing classes should I attend per week?

Most people attend boxing classes 1 to 3 times per week, though this depends on your budget and schedule. For the best results, consider exercising at the gym or at home in between classes to build strength and endurance.

What should I wear to a boxing class?

Wear comfortable, lightweight clothing and shoes to a boxing class. Most people wear shorts and a T-shirt or tank top. Remember to bring a water bottle and small towel to hydrate and remove sweat during the workout.

  • How long have you been teaching boxing classes?
  • Are you licensed and insured?
  • How many students do you have?
  • Are you experienced teaching beginners?
  • Do you have any current openings?

Parker is very patient and good at explaining things as we learn new moves. His positivity and work ethic are a driving factor behind my success with improving in my Krav Maga.

Uriel is one of the hardest working and knowledgeable coaches I know. On top of being an active fighter that can help you master any standing technique (boxing, kickboxing, and my favorite, Muay Thai) he has, and could do, any workout he puts you through. Uriel is a great motivator, and always brings the jokes along with the motivation. A great dude and a great teacher, check him out, for sure.
