I am able to offer a pretty wide mix in stand up arts due to my background and my natural ability for fight analysis. Anything from specifically boxing to mixing the arts together for more of a MMA application. One of my clients is focusing solely on point style sparring for traditional Karate.
I love working with people especially in the fitness industry. Helping people reach their goals whether its general fitness or stepping into the ring/cage is one of the most enjoyable experiences for me in life.

The first thing I do with any new student is a free assessment. I treat it more as a meet and greet, to see where we're starting at, and to write down goals as to where we want to go with our lessons. Whether it's to get in shape, learn how to fight, or even become a fighter. The other purpose is to make sure we're a good fit. I wouldn't want anyone to pay for lessons if we're just simply a bad match and my client ends up not taking away the knowledge I have to offer.
I have extensive experience in the stand up arts (Boxing, Kickboxing, Muay Thai) and have decent experience in the grappling arts (Brazilian Jiu-jutsu and wrestling).
I have over 18 years of Martial Arts training. I started off in Kenpo Karate where we did American style Kickboxing rather than your traditional point sparring. Later, I moved towards Pankration, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-jutsu, and boxing. I have trained boxing under a golden globe champ from New York and and certified by the Thai government to teach Muay Thai. I am also a Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu-jutsu. I can provide a bit more advance training in Boxing, Kickboxing, and Muay Thai and can provide more of the basics for grappling. I have over 12 year of experience with being an assistant instructor and a main instructor as well.
At the moment, I typically charge $50 an hour. That can be broken up however my client chooses, so if they want to do half hour sessions 4 times a week, I would only charge for 2 hours. This price is of course negotiable depending on where we train, how far I have to travel, if the client is paying for multiple sessions upfront, etc.
I have always enjoyed passing on my knowledge in the arts. I started out as being an assistant instructor when I was 16 years old. I was helping my peers as well as adults. As I accumulated more knowledge and started learning more traditional Boxing and Muay Thai, I started leading kids classes as well as adult classes.
I have worked with all ages and all skill levels of students. I have worked with beginners to fitness in general all the way to competitive fighters. I am able to work with any sort of disabilities as well seeing as I am used to having to work modifications to technique. My main focus is to make sure that my client and I have a compatible connection.
The main advise I would give to anyone looking at any lessons, be it boxing, music, or MMA, would be can the teacher teach the basics and do they know how to coach. I have ran into a lot of amazing fighters who simply cannot coach because they don't know how to communicate and work with others. Some of the best fighters in the world are the worst coaches and some of the best coaches in the world are not active fighters. Some are both, the main thing is, make sure they know how to teach and make sure there is a good connection.
