FAQs


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

All new students are invitied to take part in a trial session to experience a full private training session with no obligation. During the trial session we go through a consultation to discuss goals and lifestyle followed by the actual workout. Once the workout begins we will go over the boxing stance, simple footwork, the first 3 punches, and several rounds of mittwork to put everything we learned together.


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

I am a certified boxing trainer with years of experience training in the sport as well as coaching at major franchise gyms.


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

There are packages available for students who are committed to long term training with me. Prices range between $60-$90/session depending on location and package chosen. All sessions are one hour in duration. Potential students are welcome to visit my website for more details on this topic. Pricing can also be discussed in person at the conclusion of the trial session.


How did you get started teaching?

I've always had a niche for teaching from when I was younger. Being a school teacher crossed my mind in the past but I never really pursued it. 4 years into my training I was looking for a higher paying job than the part time job I had at the time. There was an opening for a coaching position at a boxing gym close to my home. I started off teaching small group classes and then worked my way up to leading bigger group classes while conducting private lessons on the side. The rest is history.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have the pleausre of working with students from all different backgrounds which makes my job very unique and interesting. Some of my notable students include a DC Metropolitan Police Officer, members of the military (Army & Marine Corps), government contractors, and a professional Taekwondo instructor. 


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

Look for someone who has actual boxing experience to teach you the sweet science. That person doesn't have to be a fighter but it should be someone who has the necessary qualifications to conduct a safe and effective training session for you to learn how to box the right way while having fun. Remember that you're looking for a coach and not a fighter. Yes it's good that your coach might have fighting experience but it's even more important that you look to see how much coaching experience your instructor has. Not all fighters make the best coaches.


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

Make sure that you know what your goals are. The best way for a coach to help you is for you to simply know what you want to achieve so that your instructor can plan a course of action to get you there. You should also be thinking about how many times a week you want to train as well as your budget. Training multiple times a week will surely help you reach your goals faster but you should also make sure that your trainer is affordable and realistically meets within your financial limits. Do your research on different coaches in your area so you can determine who might be the best fit for your needs.
