Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
Boxing for fitness, self defense, and zen. Our bodies are not meant to sit at desks all day or in traffic for hours. They're meant to move. And not to move furniture or to lift a dumb bell in the air, but to move freely and expressively. There's a reason the sport of combat has been around since the dawn of time. There's a reason every mammal on the planet engages in some form of roughhousing. It's fun. It's rewarding. And it's a lot more cerebral than it might seem.

The success of solving problems with your body and mind together is actually one of the most rewarding feelings one can have. It activates a primal, naturalistic part of your brain which increases your mood, memory, will power, and overall happiness as a human being.

I've been training in a variety of martial arts for about a decade. It's given me perspective and discipline while sharpening my decision making skills and overall clarity. Whether your goal is fitness, self defense, or competition I'll help you get there. I'll cater each class to you specifically. Feel safer. Feel stronger. Feel smarter.

Teaching since:

Hi I'm Sharif! I'm only good at a few things and one of them is teaching. I'll be happy to teach you the others. A lot of teachers make the mistake of overlooking the mechanics of learning and that's why, no matter how talented they are, their students often struggle. I've always preferred to learn things on my own and in the process I've gotten good at the art of learning. I taught myself guitar and six other instruments. I learned French in 6 months. I got good at boxing just by sparring a lot. I understand how to learn and therefore how to teach. I'll break things down in whatever way you understand them and I'll give you simple tricks to help you learn faster.
