Kru Rick Maresch
Rick started training at Twin Dragon in 1988. In 2010 he received his red sash (Sifu, Master) from Mick and Martin McNamara. In the summer of 2012, he became owner of Twin Dragon North. Rick has been ranked Poo Choi Kru in Muay Thai, by Ajahn Suchart, of Siam No. 1. When not at the 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.

Kru Chris Williams
Behind every great champion is a trainer and in every trainer is the knowledge and the traditions of an art that dates back centuries. Muay Thai is an ancient and highly effective combat striking form of art. Once upon a time it was a way of life and survival for the brave Thai warriors. This discipline is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, and shins. A beautiful art of human endurance born from the fiery soul of strength deep within the hearts and soul. » Read the full Bio on Kru Chris Williams
Vince started with Twin Dragon in 2000, under Mick McNamara, and has been teaching classes at our gym since 2012. Vince’s workouts focus on conditioning and traditional kickboxing movement, with some street self defense thrown in for good measure.
Crystal has been with our gym for almost two years. In that time, she went from training to get in shape to becoming a competitive athlete and currently has an amateur record of 3-1, with more upcoming matches in the works. Crystal is ranked as a Poo Choi Kru (assistant instructor) in Muay Thai under Ajahn Suchart of Siam No. 1. You will find her helping our members with their sparring as well as teaching the Children’s classes, as well as our children’s class. We see a bright future for Crystal, representing our gym in Kickboxing and Muay Thai.
Melandra has been training in Kickboxing & Muay Thai with Twin Dragon North since 2017. What started as a pursuit to achieve her fitness goals, quickly grew into a desire to learn and further develop her skills. Through the guidance and mentoring of Kru Rick Maresch, Melandra began instructing and has since received her Poo Choi Kru (Assistant Instructor) certification in 2018 from Ajahn Suchart and the Sports Authority of Thailand. Melandra embarked as a student of martial arts at the age of 35 and believes it’s never too late to acquire new talents and ignite unknown passions. Her dedication and commitment to learning, and the guidance she provides to the students has made her a valued member of our team.
When Fred joined the Twin Dragon Club in 1972 it was a traditional Kung Fu club. After many years of teaching Kickboxing Fred went back and studied the historic Twin Dragon Kung Fu Forms – Hung Gar, Do Pai and Choy Le Fut – and supplemented those with numerous Seven Star Preying Mantis forms.
