Born and raised in San Francisco's Mission District, growing up on Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali as a kid Dave quickly became fascinated with boxing and martial arts driving his parents insane as he would hit the punching bag for hours on end and run around the house. What attracted him the most was the individuality and self confidence it offers. And at the end of the workout the sense of accomplishment. Dave has participated in numerous martial art tournaments and boxed in the amateur level, having sparred and worked out with some of the top amateurs and pros fighters in the Bay Area and Las Vegas. Coaching group and private clients for about 12 years now, his goal is always to teach it like it was meant to be taught while making it fun. Dave is USA boxing and California athletic commission certified.
