MICHAEL H.

SENIOR BOXING COACH
HEAD COACH

Michael is a Hell’s Kitchen native since the era before trendy restaurants lined every street and $7 cup coffee shops.

He started combat training with Tae Kwon Do when he was 11 years old, transitioned to MMA training in high school, and eventually took up “the sweet science,” boxing. That decision paid off as he won the Golden Gloves in 2012 and two more amateur tournaments after that before turning pro in 2020.

Michael started training people in boxing while attending St. John’s University and eventually started a boxing program there. His goal remains the same with everyone he works with: help them maximize their potential. Whether they’re trying to shed a couple pounds or actually step in the ring and fight, he is committed to seeing his students reach their goal.

Regardless of their motivation, students can count on learning how to defend themselves. All of the physical and mental benefits of boxing emanate from training like you’re preparing for the fight of your life, because you are!
