Eddie Arrazola has been training the art of boxing for 11 years. He started his own martial arts training at 4. Unlike most competitors, Eddie became fascinated with the art of coaching. While others watched a fighter train, he would study the coach. Eddie became especially interested in how they prepared their fighter both mentally and physically and created his own method of training. Eddie believes that everyone should create an alter ego that shows up when it is time to fight. His greatest passion is helping people to reach their full potential whether they are training for competition or physical fitness.
He trains people from all walks of life including, actors, directors, CEOs, soccer moms and more. His greatest passion is helping people reach their full potential and he facilitates them to level up in their lives through the art of boxing.
Eddie created the acclaimed youth program, 'The Wolf Pack." The program teaches an anti-bullying philosophy and self-confidence. Through physical movement and boxing instruction kids learn to stand up for themselves, find their voices and pursue their greatest selves. The incredible transformations that the kids often make are life-changing!
