Reasons I like to coach
“I fell into coaching during my time training at N-1 Thai in Ottawa when the kids program needed a coach. Coaching felt very natural to me and I found the kids responded well to my teaching style. I decided to continue to coach because I found I enjoyed watching the evolution of my students as they became more proficient in the art of Muay Thai while achieving their own personal goals. There is nothing more fulfilling than being able to share my love of Muay Thai & Kickboxing, impart what I have learned and watch the transformations unfold. “
