About this pro

I get individuals into shape using boxing conditioning drills and basic fundamentals/techniques. Anybody can do this. So, while you are getting into shape , you ending up being able to protect yourself the correct way.

whether your purpose is for just getting in shape, want to box competitively or self preservation

Meeting the wide range of people I have trained, from little kids- retired military & 50+ year olds. But, honestly I enjoy being the individual that taught people the correct way, not no rush job.

This society is changing dramatically, so people must be properly prepared.

    Training fundamentals and conditioning Really sharpens your boxing savvy Great teacher and coach

  • Damon Jordan

    The quality of the gear

  • Faheem Blount

    An amazing coach! He assisted my two sons on the basic fundamentals of the boxing craft for sometime, until we moved. Not only did it build their self-confidence, it also instilled another form of discipline within themselves. He also held them accountable at all times, which is also a plus. A job well done, faithful coach.

  • Ralph Perez

    The experience level of the trainer and the dynamics of his training style had an “old school” feel in which I enjoyed and the results were amazing. His conditioning drills were tougher than a lot of my HIIT drills and his boxing techniques and drills taught me tremendously. I would recommend Gorilla Tactics to anyone who either wants to learn how to box effectively or anyone who wants to condition. Either way, you time and money will not be wasted.

FAQs


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

I believe it is a 3 month process to truly grasp the basics.

First month= basic forward/ reverse footwork. Learn to throw the single jab, double jab and triple jab. Learn the concept of levels

Second month= learn the 5 defensive moves(slipping, rolling, catching, parrying and pivoting). Then utilizing each one wit the jab variations

Third month= Learn proper lateral movement. Once learned, then utilize everything that has already been taught

And then I add more ingredients to the gumbo

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

when i first started training a female, we were about to use the punch mitts. She was all excited because she had used them before wit a kick boxing trainer, but clearly didnt know how to throw punches correctly,, so i had to show her.

As time progressed, we did a drill: it consisted of run down to a line, perform 1 push-up and then come back to me in your stance and throw the combo i tell u. She did, however, after she threw the combo she drops her hands away from her jaw--------so i lightly smack her(to her surprise).......i told whatever u throw your hands always return back home or this will be the conseqence......hahahaha.............trust me after that she learned the concept of reality
