What inspired you to become a Mittwork Specialist?
The love of all combat sports. I trained as an Amateur Fighter, I hated everthing about training for a fight. For some reason when it came down to hitting the Pads (mittwork), I could literally do it all day. I felt that everybody should glove up and want to do it as well. Mittwork tricks the brain and you forget its a full body workout.
What is your motivation to do this now?
Learning and evolving has always been my motivation to do this. I know enough to know, I don’t know enough.
How far do you plan on going with your boxing/training?
I plan on going as far as possible. I would love to be hired as a PADMAN for a Pro Fighter’s training camp, which I feel will be happening soon.
What people have you caught the attention since you started your training?
I have caught the attention of tons of business women, I repeat WOMEN (fellas lets do better). I have also got attention from and worked with many of boxers, MMA fighters and personal trainers.
Any upcoming fighters that readers should know about?
Yes, I have an Amateur boxer 13 year old Jucati “Jaguar” Jordan (2-1), 2018 Diamond Glove Champion. Great kid and we are in preparation for the summer and fall bouts.
Who are you training with escrima sticks to get yourself better?
I am training escrima sticks with my cousin Aaron Jackson, he is also a very skilled Martial Artist/Stuntman/Model/Business Man. He is the reason I have added weapons training to my regimen. Starting next year once I get fluid enough, I will hold weapons classes for the youth. I feel a gun should always be taught to be a person last option when defending themselves.
What are your top three healthy habits?
Water, veggies and basic workouts.
What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
I’m very anti-social.
What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?
I think everyone should TAKE A CHANCE to see how far they can go.
What do you want to be remembered for?
I only care that my son remembers me as being a great father to him.
What is your biggest success?
My biggest success has to have been my fighters first fight and we fought a guy that had eight fights to his zero and we won in spectacular fashion.
