BOXING COACH AT JOHN DONEHUE JIU JITSU AND MMA
Pete has trained alongside and worked closely with multiple world champions and achieved some success in the ring himself.
Despite this, it was his love of teaching and interacting with people that bought him to his career in training. After the sport helped him overcome some of his own personal hurdles, he is now passionate about sharing it with others and helping them reach their own goals along the way.
