Muay Thai/Boxing Instructor
James Head started training at Lovato’s in 2008 and quickly earned a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu after winning the silver medal at the 2010 World Championships as a blue belt. However, James’ real expertise lies in striking. Before James arrived at Lovato’s, he had over six years of boxing experience, and was the Southwest Regional Amateur Champion in Texas. He has since been incorporating Lovato’s Mixed Martial Arts program into his arsenal and currently holds a 6-1 pro record and a 5-0 amateur record as a MMA fighter. James has been studying the art of Muay Thai and is doing an incredible job of showing his techniques to the Lovato’s Team, demonstrating how to throw a proper punch, kick, elbow and knee. The techniques James teaches are extremely practical and could be used in a self-defense situation or in a competition setting.
