A message from Coach:
“Thanks for your interest in training at American Boxing! I am personally humbled by each student who takes this journey with me.
To ensure the best possible experience with me at my school, please bring a positive attitude, respect fellow students and always give a 100% effort.
Please check your ego at the door, no-one has the “right” to train here. We do not teach people who are simply interested in “fighting” or hurting others, nor will we teach people who are disrespectful.
Our rules are simple and based on basic respect and common sense. However, if you do not like them, there are many other gyms that do not care how students treat each other or the instructors as long as you pay their rent. This lack of control in such an environment is what causes so many injuries and uncomfortable situations for men and especially women in many MMA gyms. I do not tolerate DB’s or drama queens and my existing students appreciate my vetting process:-)
If you have a sense of humor great, sarcasm is my second language, use it often, after class ;-) Thanks again for your interest in training with us, I look forward to working with you! ” ~Coach Dave
