about

We welcome all: levels, backgrounds, histories. We are all a team at QB.

After training alongside Olympians and world champions, I lost the ability to express myself through performing in the square circle due to a career ending concussion in 2012. However, I found myself again in the sport through teaching and coaching.

the story

our JOURNEY

1997
I've been competing in martial arts since the age of five - starting with a Filipino martial arts called Sikaran.

I would transition to boxing when I was 16.
2012
While preparing for a shot to the 2012 London Olympics, I suffered a concussion during sparring. It would turn out to be career-ending for me.
2019
Quinit Boxing is open! Classes and competitive programs available.
2009 to 2012
2x National Champion
3x National Team Member
2009 Francophone Games Bronze
2010 Ringside Champion
2013
After feeling like I lost my identity, I reconnect with the sport through coaching.
