Jake Steinmann Muay Thai Coach

I've been a student of self-defense, the martial arts, and combat sports since about 1989. I was twelve, and enrolled in a Tae Kwon Do class. The rest, as they say, is history.

I still train, study, and try to learn as much as I can. 
My coaching is always in the process of evolving, as am I.

My philosophy on coaching boils down to this.

  • I believe that anyone, regardless of age or fitness level, has the capacity to learn to protect themselves.

  • I believe that anyone, regardless of age or fitness level, can benefit from the study of personal safety. 

  • I believe that the study of personal safety, if done in an authentic and appropriate manner, can provide skills that enhance the daily lives of those who study it.

  • I believe that my purpose and duty as a coach is to help guide my students towards the realization of their goals, not to impose my own desires or beliefs about upon my students. Therefore, wherever it is possible, I seek to align my teaching towards the goals of my students, while acknowledging that in larger classes, this dynamic becomes more challenging. 

I put the last part in bold, because it's the most important part for me.

I am a coach. My job is to guide you to the place you want to be. Not to make you learn a system, not to make you do the things that I can do. I want to help you do the things you can do.

I offer private and semi-private Muay Thai coaching, as well as custom Muay Thai seminars within the New England area. I have over a decade of experience in Muay Thai, and have been actively coaching students of all ages and abilities since 2004. 

Mark Massey Muay Thai & Boxing Coach

Mark has trained extensively in Thailand, at 13 Coins and Fairtex Muay Thai camps. He recieved his Muay Boran Mongkol from the Thai Institute by Grand Master Woody. He continues his training under Kru Mark DellaGrotte.

 

Mark's favorite quote during class is "Let it Go...Let it Flow!"

Kru Andres Jeudi Muay Thai Coach

Since a young age, Andres has always been a competitive person. His hobbies included playing video games, sprinting and lifting weights. Interesting enough, Jeudi was introduced to Muay Thai by watching the episode “Revenge of Ashura” from the anime series Street Fighter II V.  

Jeudi explained to us the story about his first introduction to Muay Thai...
 

"I never knew how to pronounce the martial art style that I saw.  But I knew it was from a Street Fighter character, named Sagat. The moves that were displayed showed such raw power. The moves were intense. I thought nothing of it, at first. But that night, I had a serious adrenaline rush. I didn't know why until I actually thought hard as why I was feeling that way.  Then I knew. That night… I wanted to learn Muay Thai.  And I told myself that I will not throw a punch or a kick until I read the history of Muay Thai.  I spent three whole days researching the history of Muay Thai's history.  From there, I started self teaching.  I noticed there was a workout gym that had Muay Thai classes. I went to check it out right away.  I felt like a kid in a candy store."

                            

Motoki “Jimmy” Hattori was the first man to teach Andres Jeudi the very basics of Muay Thai.  Afterwards, he started training under Hattori’s teacher, Kru Mark Nardone for a year. “Whenever I wasn't training with Kru Mark Nardone, I was training in my room or outdoors, in the woods.  It became my passion. I feel that Kru Mark Nardone put in years of Muay Thai training in me in just one year.  I grew confident and curious.  I wanted to know if Muay Thai really worked.  I explained to him that I wanted to start fighting. Kru Mark Nardone explained he would be unable to be my fighting coach because he did not own his own gym. As a result, he referred me to join Sityodtong, a Muay Thai school in Somerville, MA.”

 

Jeudi later explains how difficult this decision was for him, considering the fact that he is a loyal student.

 

“I was a bird that didn't want to leave the nest. But Kru Mark Nardone told me to focus being a loyal student to Sityodtong. I explain to Kru Mark DellaGrotte that I wanted to become a Muay Thai fighter.  After nine months of solid training, I had my first amateur Muay Thai fight….  And I won via TKO.”  

Tateki Matsuda Muay Thai & MMA Coach

No two fighters arrive at the UFC having traveled the exact same path, and the journey Tateki Matsuda has traveled is nothing short of extraordinary. In the six years during which the Team Sityodtong fighter has been competing as a professional mixed martial artist, he's also been diligently working toward academic accomplishments. Matsuda first acquired his bachelor's degree in sports movement science and recently earned his master's degree in applied nutrition for fitness from Northeastern University. Academic accomplishments of that nature require a tremendous amount of focus and discipline, and Matsuda continuing to progress his career in MMA at the same time is an exceptional feat. "I originally came to the U.S. as a student, but after I finished my college degree I wanted to stay in the U.S. and train with great fighters," Matsuda told Bleacher Report. "My options were to stay as a full-time student and train at the same time, or go back to Japan and enter a new network and career there. I chose to stay in the U.S. and I actually was able to get a professional athlete visa. "It was a long journey to get to a master's degree because I had to train and teach at the same time. Now, my goal this year is to become a UFC fighter and start my other career as well."

Mike "Loco Lobo" Gresh Brazilian Jiu JiTSU Coach

If you don’t know him, you should.  This man has been a part of the south shore martial arts scene since 1973 and the MMA scene since before you knew it was a sport.  “Loco Lobo” or “crazy wolf” got into Martial Arts under Mike Fernandez training in Karate and Kickboxing.   Before UFC 1 some martial artists naturally cross-trained with judo/grappling or maybe a little wrestling, Sensi Fernandez fostered  this type of training but in Loco’s own words it  was UFC 1 when he really started to catch the bug.

 

“I was like wow look at this guy taking people down, that aspect of it always fascinated me. “
