Damien joined Phoenix in 2007 with his mate Lee. He had heard about Phoenix being the best place to train combat sports and eventually decided to give it a go. Years later you could call Phoenix his second home. He has mainly focused on the Muay Thai program and has graded to level 4, making him a senior student and respected part of the club.
With a few years of training under his belt he decided to step into the ring and test his skills. To date he’s had 10 fights, one of which won him a NSW title. He now coaches 2 classes a week. Along with his regular coaching he also assists in training the Phoenix fight team. Damo’s no nonsense approach to training and coaching keeps his regular students coming back. He lives and teaches the Phoenix culture of being resilient, fair and tough.
