“Matt is the best 1-1 technical boxing coach I have had to hone my ring skills and get my fitness inline. His edge is his analysis and subsequent personalised training routine that has been crucial to my learning quickly, effectively and my maintaining interest. Don't expect your average substandard 'Boxercise' class/tuition, this is the real deal where you will learn real technique and is as hard as you are willing to make it!”
Diego Rom, London

“Matt was my trainer for my very first boxing session. Now, many months down the line, he trains me on a one-to-one basis. Matt is a superb coach: paying care and attention to his trainees, while combining his experience and expertise with great patience and good humour. What shines though most is his clear desire for his students to progress and better themselves - to always push harder, to always go further. Training sessions with Matt never fail to be utterly exhausting, totally exhilarating and extremely enjoyable.”
Eugene Grant, London

“I am new to boxing so wanted to get a few one-to-one sessions in with Matt to see how i felt about it as a way of getting fitter. To my surprise I have become totally into it and really enjoying the steep learning curve Matt is taking me on. Just in a few sessions I feel I understand more about the sport and my technique, stamina, co-ordination is improving by every session. I am now considering making boxing my one and only form of exercise! I can warmly recommend Matt to beginners like myself. Don't be afraid to take up the sport, it's really fun when you get into it!”
Jens Wikholm, London

“Matt´s enthusiasm for boxing and the dedication he showed from the very first time he entered the club was infectious. It has been a pleasure working with him over the years and I am proud to call him a friend.
Enzo Giordano, Ex-British Super Middleweight and founder of Left Hook Boxing Club

“Matt is a credit to boxing.”
