I discovered boxing when I was 14 and I boxed at various different gyms around South East London. I knew boxing was a passion from early on, despite this I still completed a degree in Product Design and worked as a designer. The design career was short lived; I went back to what I knew best, continued competing and eventually began coaching full time in 2016.
As an amateur boxer I have had over 25 bouts and reached elite level. My most notable achievement was winning a gold medal in the 69kg division at the renowned International tournament: Haringey BoxCup. I also have professional Muay Thai (Thai Boxing) experience, another combat sport that interested me – I liked the idea of learning how to kick! I competed briefly at an amateur level then as a professional, fighting on a fast-growing UK promotion, the Muay Thai Grand Prix at the o2.
The more experience I gained in the ring competing and training, the more I got involved with coaching. The satisfaction from teaching and seeing students achieve their goals was greatly rewarding and it started to give me a new direction with the sport. Coaching slowly became more important, so I decided to put a pause on my fighting career and put all my attention into coaching.
I have coached a wide range of students ranging from complete beginners, to white-collar contenders, to elite championship boxers. I believe good quality boxing training isn’t exclusive only to boxers and athletes. I am here to pass on my experience and knowledge to anyone wishing to give boxing a try.
