About Joe


Hi, my name’s Joe and I’m the head coach, owner, mentor here at Joe’s Boxing Club Sydney!

I’ve spent over 50 years studying combat arts and have come to the conclusion that boxing skills are the fastest and most efficient route to effective self-defense. While many martial arts and fighting instructors talk about lethal techniques, for me, if it can’t be practiced in combat I have my doubts if it can be used for real. And even if they can, real sparring and competition is so much more fun than endless practice with imaginary foes.

Although I try to keep fit, continue to develop my skills, and still remain active through training and sparring with my students or masters peers, I have now clocked over half-a-century in man-hours and no longer have a desire to prove anything to myself or anyone else. I am now a teacher, coach, mentor & friend to my students.

 I want my club to be for anyone who is serious about improving their boxing skills. competitors are expected to help others and we all share victories and defeats. All students are treated equally whether you’re a man, woman, or child, and we all work as a team. Respect and humility are the most revered qualities here.

Although we do extra coaching for registered competitors including traveling for sparring and competition at no extra cost to the student,  i no longer do private lessons myself apart from those with disabilities with special interest and seemingly skill with those who that have autism but have other disability clients as well. I can invoice you or you plan manager each month.
