Introduction: Hello there I've been teaching MMA, strength, and conditioning for 9 years. Nothing excites me more than seeing people improve and progress.
I have competed in Kickboxing ever since I started training. Travelled all over this earth to train with the best fighters in the world and to gain knowledge from the greatest minds of combat sports. My goal from day one was to be as best as I can. I reached the highest level but retired when I was 21 when I first learned about CTE/brain damage at the same time I was focusing on my last year in university.
But that didn't stop my goal of increasing my skills to the highest degree possible and this time without damaging my brain. Which allowed me to develop a system where I can teach and share with my student
In my travels some of the names I trained with in my lifetime and helped in their training camps are some names you might know if you follow combat sports if not then google :) I have trained with GSP the greatest MMA fighter of all time. Dominic Cruz the best analyst in UFC and former UFC champ. Demian Maia the best jiu jitsu specialist in MMA. Trained with and Sparred Semmy Schilt the best heavyweight kickboxer of all time.Trained with Giorgio Petrosyan the greatest kickboxer of all time. I also trained with hall of fame coaches like Firas Zahabi, Andre Mannart and Freddie Roach.
I'm also the only person in Chicago who's linage comes directly from Dutch Kickboxing. And the only fighter trained under the world famous Mejiro gym from Amsterdam extensively. I also trained at Wild Card boxing gym for a month. I was the head Kickboxing coach of UFC gym for 5 years and Boxing coach @ Midtown Chicago for a year pre-covid and helped countless people of all ages, sizes, and levels through personal training and semi-personal training.
I also love helping clients get better in their health that don't involve self defense,MMA or boxing. I use a variety of different strategies to get you strong, healthy, athletic and happy.
Training can be done online, in-home, or at Stronghands gym in Chicago. Everything can also be done with no contact and still get all the benefits. Private up to 4 people max. 24 hour cancellation policy
