KRU Michael Fitzpatrick

Michael Fitzpatrick is the MTBSA World Champion and ranked #1 in Canada at 160lbs by the WBC(World Boxing Council). He is also a 3-time Canadian National, Provincial, and “Cold Warz” champion. At just 15 years old, Michael traveled to Thailand to train under the legendary Tiger Muay Thai camp, turning professional at 18. He has traveled throughout Asia, learning from and competing against some of the best fighters in the world, and holds a professional record of 44W/5L/0D. In 2019, he was officially recognized by Thailand’s government and the World Muay Thai & Muay Boran Sports Association as receiving the prestigious title of “Kru Yai”.

As one of Canada’s highest elite fighters, Michael has trained under some of Muay Thai’s best fighters and coaches such as Thailand’s Thongchai Sitsongpeenong, Petch-tho Sitjaopho, and Kaisuwit Ple. He currently trains under Kierian Keddle of the UK(coach of 22 world champions) and Joe Hongthong Noi of Hongthong Muay Thai Camp in Chiangmai, Thailand. He’s passionate about sharing his experience and knowledge with his students and loves helping people see that they can surpass their abilities with hard work, and dedication.

With many years in Muay Thai under his belt, Coach Michael has developed a program that incorporates many styles perfectly like a true Muay Fimeu master. The success of Spartan Striking Academy in local, national, and international competitions is a testimony to the effectiveness of this approach. The traditional fighting style of Thailand, Muay Thai is an effective martial art for both competition, self-defense, and general fitness. The emphasis on Muay Thai striking is the effectiveness and strategy of the movement. Michael teaches how important it is to have a superior technique with no wasted movements. Each strike is designed to maximize power while minimizing effort.

Michael teaches a wide range of Techniques such as Muay Khao which focuses on a fighter using mainly knees. Muay Sok which is geared more towards effective elbow strikes and Muay Fimeu which is a combination of nearly five major disciplines which is only provided by a true Muay Thai master. Regardless if you’re new to Spartan Striking Academy or a long time member, Michael will teach you everything he knows to get you up to speed at our Markham, Ontario Location. When you watch Michael teach his classes you will notice something quite amazing, you’ll see how calm and relaxed he is while executing the perfect technique with intense power. This comes from thousands of hours of drilling the basic techniques that make up the core of Muay Thai.

Coach Ferb

     

If it’s not applicable, 

 don’t use it”

About Me: 

Coach Ferb has been training martial arts for just under a decade and has been with Spartan for 3 years. Ferb has fought competitively and is a vital part in training up Spartan students who are interested in competing. He has supported countless students in making the transition from the mats to the ring, has cornered more than his fair share of successful fighters, and is the proud coach of a WBC title holder.

In his childhood, Ferb was experiencing issues with bullying, and sought out Muay Thai to learn how to protect himself. Today, Muay Thai is his passion and a source of self-confidence.

Teaching Philosophy:

Coach Ferb takes a methodical, regimented, and practical approach to teaching Muay Thai. Ferb takes every element of Muay Thai, breaks them down into individual concepts, and teaches his students to become proficient in everyone. When his students have a grasp on each of these concepts in their own rite, Ferb will teach them to bring all the pieces together to understand the application in the ring or on the mats.

Class Concepts:

Offense, defense, guard, evasion, catches and parries, footwork, inside fighting, outside fighting, tricking, countering.

Class Atmosphere: 

Ferb prioritizes conditioning, technique, and quality of training. In Ferb’s class, you can expect a hard workout, repetition, and special attention to developing quality technique. For new students, Ferb is happy to give extra time to students that want to nail down their technique, and avoid developing bad habits.

Personality and Approach: 

Ferb brings a cool, collected, purposeful, and driven disposition to his classes. As someone who experienced bullying at a young age, Ferb takes an anti-bullying approach to his teaching, and is especially invested in helping his students develop their confidence. Ferb sets forth a serious tone in his class, but you will find his humor and laughs when the moment calls for it.

In your first class with Ferb, bring water, expect to sweat, expect some laughs, and expect to be pushed to give everything you have. If you’re someone that is looking to develop your confidence, or take your Muay Thai to the next level, Ferb is someone that is adept in helping his students unlock their potential and push themselves to new limits.

Coach Heemy Lo

  

“Balance is everything”

 

About Me:

Heemy has been training martial arts for over 5 years and has been with Spartan for over 2. Like many of the coaches at Spartan, Heemy is highly active in competition and brings deep commitment to his training, teaching, and the ring.

For Heemy, Muay Thai is a very aggressive martial art, so power, balance, and technique are paramount to showing dominance in the ring. Despite his assertive style in the ring and yearn for dominating his opponents, his approachability and thoughtfulness are second to none.

Teaching Philosophy:

Heemy lays a foundation with the basics and has his students rep it out with multiple variations, while paying attention to speed and distance. Every technique has many moving parts that all need to come together to perform a fast and hard strike, and repetition is the way to get there. He blends traditional, rigid Muay Thai rules with modern approaches to tailor techniques to individuals and leverage their strengths.

Class Concepts:

Technique, combinations, movement, balance.

Class Atmosphere:

Bring a water bottle and bring the effort because Heemy likes to push his students with high volume and run fast-paced drills. Like all of the Spartan coaches, Heemy ensures a zero-shame environment. While he encourages his students to give their best, he ensures their efforts align with their self-set goals. At Spartan, nobody will be made to feel lesser for having different objectives.

Personality and Approach:

Heemy brings a fun and enthusiastic attitude to his classes, and his high energy fighting style certainly shows up in the way he teaches. Beginners will start with the foundations, learning single strikes, punches, and kicks, and will then build them up to throw combinations. For advanced students, Heemy focuses on drilling high-level combinations and will introduce unexpected curveballs, helping his students learn to flow. In other words, Heemy adapts his teachings to the composition of skills for each class.

Heemy is a passionate fighter and is there to support anyone that wants to step into the competitive arena. For anyone that knows Heemy, it’s clear that his victories in the ring are only getting started, and he is happy to lend his advice to anyone that would like to join him. With his versatile and adaptable approach, Heemy is an excellent coach for beginners and those preparing to step into the ring.

Coach Patricia Fitzpatrick

Knowing that I have it [Muay Thai] when I need it, gave me my voice”

About Me:

Patricia has been training martial arts for over 8 years and is part of the family that runs Spartan Striking Academy. Grappling with social anxiety early on, Muay Thai helped Patricia come out of her shell and find her voice. Since then, Patricia has earned an impressive 10-1 fight record, has developed an interest in teaching children and students with unique learning needs, and helps people come out of their comfort zone.

 

Patricia is currently working on her undergrad in social work, and incorporates elements from her learning into her coaching style.

Teaching Philosophy:

 Patricia prioritizes simplicity and physicality into her teaching. Having trained in Thailand, where she learned how to train Muay Thai without speaking the same language as her coaches, Patricia is adept in teaching by showing. Pairing this with her approach in explaining concepts in the most easily understood way, she is a great coach for beginners, children, and anyone that is looking for a teacher that will go above and beyond to find a way to accommodate their learning style.

Class Concepts:

 Technical, offence, defence, practical application with a partner, clinch.

Class Atmosphere:

 Patricia creates a well-paced and welcoming environment for her classes. You can expect a challenging workout, to learn, have fun, and have a new technique to try out on a partner. For new students, expect that Patricia will go out of her way to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need to fit in with your new Spartan family.

Personality and Approach:

Patricia brings a modest and humble approach to her Muay Thai, and coaching, but don’t let her calm demeanor fool you. Patricia is a ferocious fighter, and is determined to help her students step outside their comfort zone, develop a loud voice, and become the best version of themselves.

Coach Jenelle

There’s a lot of honor with being called a Spartan.”

About Me:

Jenelle has been training martial arts for 12 years, and has been with Spartan for 6 months. Jenelle got her start in Jiu-Jitsu, but found a passion in Muay Thai. After beginning her Muay Thai training, Jenelle stepped into the ring within 6 months and hasn’t missed a day of training ever since. She not only found world-class training with Spartan, but also a deep sense of community, and a second family. Spartan pushed Jenelle to achieve excellence, and the love and admiration she has for the community is unmatched.

Jenelle is the last Garcia in her family, and proudly represents the name when she steps into the ring. When she enters the competitive arena, she does so with the objective of bringing back greatness and pride to her family. Given the family she’s found at Spartan, Jenelle doesn’t just fight as the last Garcia, but also as a proud Spartan.

Teaching Philosophy:

Many people think striking has to be aggressive and harsh. Jenelle prefers a more fluid, technical, and intellectual approach. Good Muay Thai starts from your feet. Precise striking and a strong guard both start with having your feet in the right place. As well, Jenelle teaches her students to develop the mental discipline to work in Muay Thai. Having initially struggled with facing hits, she ensures her students acquire the tools to manage their emotions and cultivate techniques for maintaining composure, regardless of the exercise’s difficulty or the opponent they face

Class Concepts:

footwork, pushing limits, mental conditioning, strategic fighting

Class Atmosphere:

Jenelle makes it a priority to ensure all of her students feel welcomed and is available to coach anyone through the anxieties of training martial arts. She creates a supportive environment, lives for the “aha” moment in her students, and is always the first to celebrate her students victories.

Jenelle makes her students do the impossible, so it feels possible moving forward. She sets out a tough warm up with the objective of exhausting her class by the end of the warm up. The method to her madness is offering a feeling of satisfaction by getting her students to make it to the end of a rigorous warm up, that they didn’t think they could complete. This way, after a short breather, when it’s time to jump into technique, the impossible now feels possible.

Personality and Approach:

Despite being a self-proclaimed “socially awkward” person, Jenelle will make you feel right at home with Spartan. Her enthusiasm and love for the Spartan community is infectious, and she could probably sell you a membership without even offering the martial arts with it. Jenelle bears a strong sense of pride in her name and the Spartan community, while still embodying humility and approachability.

Her passion and inspiration show up in her training and coaching, and she is a critical element in what makes Spartan a family gym. Jenelle is a superb coach for anybody that might feel anxious about starting martial arts, or anyone looking for the inspiration to compete. Her devotion and advocacy for the Spartan family are second to none.
