I began training martial arts at the age of 14. U was often bullied in school, and had confidence issues. Martial arts was an outlet that could help me develop confidence, personal skills, and self defense skills!
I began with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and transitioned to Muay Thai Kickboxing and MMA at a local martial arts gym. Eventually, I sought a higher level training environment and moved to Milwaukee where I trained primarily under former world kickboxing champion, and world renowned trainer, Duke Roufus.
There I started my teaching career with youth kickboxing classes and have been teaching since. Its been over 4 years now.
I am a big fan of the head kick. It is one of the most exciting strikes to finish with!
As a coach, I take a ton of pleasure in seeing a person with no experience take on the challenge of martial arts and coming out victorious every day. The world of full of people who don’t meet their potential.
I work hard so every student that comes through the doors at Crazy 88 MMA gets a little closer everyday to reaching their potential!
I tell all of my students from day one to pro fighters. Don’t train with an expectation of your performance, instead just focus on giving 100% to the task at hand!
