Coach Joshua Whittey grew up in southern California where he played multiple sports. When he was nine he got his first punching bag and quickly became addicted to wailing away at it. A boxing fan from an early age, Josh received more than a few tough back yard lessons and tried a variety of martial arts. Five years ago he began to study Muay Thai kickboxing in Fort Collins and fell in love with it. Coach Josh has enjoyed competing in local events, is a brown shirt, and leads our competition team.
