Twin Dragon North Instructors


Rick Maresch

Rick started training at Twin Dragon in 1988. In 2010 he received his red sash from Mick and Martin McNamara. In the summer of 2012, he became owner of Twin Dragon North. Rick is currently ranked Poo Choi Kru Senior in Muay Thai, by Ajahn Suchart, considered by many to be the godfather of Muay Thai in Canada.  At 53 years old, he trains 6 to 7 days a week and is having the time of his life doing so. When not at Twin Dragon North, you will often find him at other gyms in the greater Toronto area, either training, working as a referee, or getting in sparring rounds with friends.

 

Frank Sasso has been with Twin Dragon for over 30 years and teaches regular classes during the week.
