  • Rickardo Chin

    Trained under Colin for 5 years. Life and responsibilities get in the way but I’m always hoping it slows down so that I am able to start training with Colin again. He’s an awesome coach. Very knowledgeable and super supportive.

  • Guillermo Escobar

    Colin is extremely knowledgeable and incorporates different techniques to adjust to your level of experience .He creates combinations that keep you entertained and motivated. I would highly recommended Colin as your kickboxing coach and assure you will not regret it. I have been working with him for a little over 6 years and I am still learn new techniques to this day.

  • Trey Burrow

    Have done several sessions with Colin and can’t recommend more highly. He knows what he’s talking about and is a great (and patient) teacher both with adults and kids.

  • Trevor Demara

    Excellent technical instruction for anyone from a beginner to an experienced fighter. The way he breaks things down and corrects your mechanics is so beneficial.

FAQs


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

client responds to lesson offer, we negotiate time, location, and price of services rendered before setting up an initial training session. Usually it is recommended to buy in packages after to reduce overall cost and to guarentee best results.


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

I have been a professional mixed martial artist, that has competed on national television and at the highest regional levels for over 12 years. I have been involved as a coach in some form or another for various martial arts disiciplines including, boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, and mma. I was a 3x amateur champion as well as #1 pound for pound ranked fighter in Texas. As a professional i currently hold a 9-5 record with 3 professional world titles and am currently the number 3 ranked in Texas, and number 2 ranked featherweight in Lousiana as well as the currently AKA featherweight professional champion.


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

pricing/terms are largely set so as not to waste any one's time. Occasionally acceptions are made upon owners decision.


How did you get started teaching?

i was training at the gym as a full time fighter and my kickboxing coach moved which left a spot open for me to fill. My passion for helping other and desire to be the best coach i possibly can be has fueled me to continue througout the years.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with ALL ages and skill levels. I have started working with kids as young as 3 years old and have worked with clients well into their 70's. I have trained A LOT of day one beginners all the way to currently active amateur and professional fighters.


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

i would advise someone looking for a coach to a) do your research! b)find a coach that you work well with! c)find someone that makes you feel comfortable and who is reliable and fun!


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

just make sure you really know what you want to get out of the lessons and make sure the coach can deliver on it. for example i get a lot of people who tell me they want to learn how to really fight but when they realize the amount of detail and hard work that goes into it they are less likely to continue. just enjoy your first session, and give your coach as much constructive feedback as possible and hopefully you can strike the perfect balance for you as an individual.
