We Teach You How to Fight.
Hey, I'm Shane. I'm a pro muay thai fighter, boxer, and personal trainer. You might have seen my video tutorials on Youtube where I've taught over 12 million people how to fight, get in shape, and build their confidence and mental preparation -- all at home, with no gym necessary.Start Here
The first thing you should do is start with my Fighting 101 guide. It's a free set of high-quality videos that'll teach you the basics super fast:
- How to punch, kick, and grapple
- How to avoid getting butterflies or nervousness before a fight
- Some straightforward exercises you can use to lose some weight and carve up your body
- What to do if you get into a street fight or if someone tries to mug you
- How to deal with someone who attacks you with a knife
- and a lot more -- all free and easy for anyone to follow and start using immediately.
Rather than overload you with too much info at once (because I know you're not gonna sit there and watch a whole bunch of videos in a row), it works like this: Every few days, you get an email from me with a new lesson. Some are about self-defense techniques, some are about boxing or muay thai kickboxing, and some just help you build a solid punching technique and proper fighting stance.
I've structured these so that anyone can follow along and learn really quickly, no matter how old you are or what kind of shape you're in. If you read all the emails and follow each lesson, I guarantee you'll be a thousand percent more prepared for any kind of fight or confrontation.
Self Defense Techniques

Learn How to Box
Think you can only learn boxing by going to some grimy gym? No way! I break down the sweet science of boxing into basic steps that anyone can follow, covering techniques from basic to advanced, including...
- Left hooks & right hooks
- Stance and the guard
- Blocking punches
- Slipping punches
Learn Muay Thai
I've trained muay thai kickboxing for years, even traveling to Thailand to train in the world's most challenging conditions -- and to compete as a pro fighter. The kickboxing methods I teach are the same ones you'd learn if you flew all the way to Thailand and trained in a hot, makeshift hut with the local people. I was taught by some of the world's best, so now I'm teaching you. In my videos, I explain...
- How to use the muay thai clinch to knee
- How to round-kick and condition your shins
- How to elbow
Boxing Gear Reviews
Ever wonder what kind of gear you need to train at home? Heavy bags, boxing gloves, MMA gloves, grappling dummies, speed bags, and more -- there's a lot of gear out there, and a lot of people trying to sell you stuff that you don't need! I'll cover the basics you need to get started in boxing or MMA, then show you some of the more flashy stuff that's out there and whether or not it's worth your money.
Learn How to Grapple
Since the start of the UFC, grappling has become super popular. Styles like brazilian jiu-jitsu, introduced by the Gracie family, along with Greco Roman wrestling, have gained many new fans. I teach grappling, from what to use on the sidewalk in a real streetfight, to tricks you can use in competitions.
I also cover home fitness. I love training people and seeing them go from overweight or out-of-shape to fit, transformed people with a brand new body and great new feeling of confidence in their lives!
I believe that anybody, no matter what his or her circumstances, can develop the discipline necessary to shape his or her own body into what's desired. It's just a matter of setting goals, educating yourself, and being encouraged by a good group of people who want to see you succeed as much as you do. Here on Fight Tips, we help you do that. Just stick with us and we'll get there together.
MMA (mixed martial arts) has exploded in popularity over the past few years. Most American MMA is comprised of two martial arts: Kickboxing or Muay Thai for the striking aspect, and BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) for the grappling part -- although many fighters have incorporated other styles like boxing, wrestling, judo, Taekwondo, or San Shou.
I've been training and competing in MMA as well as Muay Thai, boxing, and Taekwondo specifically for most of my life. And I've met a lot of people who would love to train in these martial arts but are unable to either because of their location or because they just can't afford the often expensive gym fees.
My goal with Fight Tips is to bring high-quality MMA training to anyone, anywhere, for free.
Sometimes you just have to defend yourself. Maybe that means escaping an attacker, or maybe it means disabling someone with a rear-naked choke. Want to know how to deal with a knife attack? Or fight someone who has a gun? I cover that here, too.
It Doesn't Matter Who You Are
You shouldn't have to be afraid to go certain places or see certain people. I teach you how to avoid fighting with non-violent tips. And if you ever feel that your life is in danger, the combat techniques you'll find here will work for anyone, male or female, of any age or fitness level. Whether you're a kid in school who has to deal with a bully harassing you, or an adult who feels intimidated at the workplace, I'll show you how to be confident and assertive in any situation.
Bullying doesn't just happen to students: 1 in 3 adults experiences some kind of bullying too. Through our iPushBack program, we promote anti-bullying awareness and action, providing help for those who need it.
I'll help you reach your goals
Many people who follow me have lofty goals, including becoming pro MMA fighters in the UFC or muay thai boxers. These athletes are the best of the best, so you can imagine it's not easy. But my online training uses exactly the same concepts as I use for my real-world clients.
If you're interested in joining a regular gym, I recommend LA Boxing.
