Coach Jason Boyer began training in the brutal art of Lethwei in 1986. He fought competitively in Muay Thai from 1991 – 2007 capturing several titles along the way. Coach Boyer began coaching at the young age of 22 simply because he needed more sparring partners, and training them from scratch seemed to be an effective way to acquire them. He has consistently coached ever since, training hundreds along the way, to include bringing countless fighters from scratch to pro. Helping people transform their lives is his passion. Coach Boyer currently oversees our kickboxing program.

Additionally, Coach Boyer is a retired decorated police officer and swat team operator. He is currently a police instructor at a local area police academy.
