Hi everyone been a while since the last new update at the academy, not for any shortage of news to be spread but more so
just us being busy implementing some end of summer changes in and around the academy.
Have some great program updates we will be rolling out over the course of this week but with time flying by as quick
as it does it’s important we let you everyone know about the upcoming fight on the way
We have coach Puric stepping back in the competitive arena for some MMA action next week at the Global Fight nights event going down in Lethbridge Alberta September 28th
Known for his ferocious striking that is a mix of Muay Thai & Kickboxing a little know fact about Denis is that he’s also multiple time national Taekwondo champion & always brings an unorthodox skill set to the ring that makes figuring him out hell for the opponents.
A few videos of him in action
vs thai legend with over 300 fights
Classic knockout vs mark Fraser in MMA
With over 400 combat sports matches under his belt & One of very few competitors that legitimately lived,trained and competed for the fabled Banchamek camp in Thailand, Denis is a dangerous as they get in the ring and a great addition to our coaching staff. You’d be hard pressed to find a coach that brings the the wealth of real life experience to the table that Denis does.
Its this wealth of knowledge that has him tasked with re-launching the Muay Thai program at Elite and its been without a doubt a success. Since taking over we’ve seen a growth in numbers and dedication to training over the past few weeks so we are happy to say he’ll just be away 2 weeks around the fight. fight week (prep) & the week after (rest) for the week leading up to and after the fight.
With coach Patrick Covering his classes.
In the interim we have BJJ coach Daniel Hale teaching the Monday & Wednesday BJJ classes @ 7pm More on Dan later but for now enjoy some of Denis’s previous work in the ring and be ready for fireworks.
