We are now an official Duke Roufus "Roufusport" affiliate!
If you'd don't know who Duke Roufus is, let me give you a brief rundown of some of his accomplishments -
On top of those amazing credentials he is also a top coach; not just in Kickboxing, but in MMA as well. Some of his more notable fighters are:
What does this mean for us?
Well, for starters, Duke was one of the guys who I first looked to when I started coaching. Doing something is one thing, being able to break it down and teach to others is a skill set unto itself. Duke's ability to break things down and teach the details set him apart from a lot of other coaches. My ability to hold the pads, teach large classes as well as 1-on-1 with people largely comes from his teaching style. I have been following him for quite awhile, especially the last few months in his Striking University. I truly believe he is one of the best coaches I've ever seen teach, and I have seen a lot!
Not only will we have access to his tested and true Kickboxing curriculum, we'll also have personal access to Duke himself! Have a question for him? I'll be happy to ask on your behalf. Want to fight in Kickboxing or MMA? As a Roufusport member you can go train with the elite fighters and coaches in Milwaukee! Want to get certified or ranked (think belt promotions)? We'll be doing that too!
On top of that we'll be starting some new programs to reward students for consistency, participation, mentoring and plain old hard work.
So look forward to new techniques, drills, concepts and taking your Kickboxing game to a whole new level!!
PS - Sorry for all the exclamation marks but I am beyond EXCITED for this!!
