My teaching method is always responsive to the needs of the individual who I am teaching. My preference is to first assess the skill level of the individual then once I have determined the skill level of the individual I can construct a suitable structure to work with. I prefer to do each activity with the client in this manner i am better able to relate to the client and understand any struggles that they may be experiencing.
I am a passionate and driven student of life and an up and coming researcher. I have dedicated the last 8 years of my life studying various aspects of human nature in attempts to attain an understanding of human life. during this time I have attained a degree in classical studies and philosophy I have also spent the year training and coaching martial arts
I am a passionate and driven student and an up and coming independent researcher who loves studying and learning, regardless of the content or field of study in question. However, I am mainly interested in human nature and the study of human interaction with the natural world.
I am looking to expand my skill set through any means necessary.

After training with Sipho for a couple of years I began to understand why everyone called him ‘sensei’. He takes his time to get to know an individual, and helps you build on your strengths and work through your weakness. His teachings go beyond the physical of the MMA & Boxing art and technique, he teaches you how to build a stronger mind. Truly grateful! He is worth taking the time out of my day to learn from, so I encourage you to do the same.
Sipho has been one of the mma instructors at my university for at least the past four years; he’s also personally trained me last year. It’s easy to see his passion for this.
He takes this very seriously - even had a meal plan for me when I didn’t even ask for it. He’s very patient, especially with beginners. Overall? One of the best trainers I’ve ever had.
I definitely would recommend going with Sipho. He is patient and makes sure that you get the topic/technique for that session. He has a unique way of ensuring that you see a perspective you would not ordinarily see and that is one of his strong points.
I have been taught by Sipho for the past five years. He has cornered me for every fight and competition. I can attest to his skill as a teacher and his capabilities within the martial arts, but his greatest skill as a teacher is his attentiveness and dedication to his students. His willingness to go above and beyond is a key reason for my own development and the development of his other students. Sipho approaches teaching with a methodical and intuitive style that allows him to easily relate to his students and adjust to their individual needs. I would highly recommend him as a tutor. His wealth of experience, developed skills and natural temperament make him and excellent choice for anyone.
