Big shout out to my sons favorite coach, Bryant. He is so motivating and helpful in correcting, and teaching my son boxing. if you're throwing a punch wrong, he will work with you to make sure your form is proper. This has been my sons third time attending class and every class has been different so you never get bored or expect what is coming!

As the Operations Manager for an armed security company in San Antonio, there is no better training than with Dennis. There is also noticeable work ethic differences between the guards that have gone through his classes vs any other program in the city. Excellent instruction, outstanding communication, and will go out of his way to assist companies and employees.
