Alex Garland

Personal Trainer

Alex first competed in 2010 in no-gi submission wrestling but has since shifted her focus to Muay Thai and kickboxing. Her training began in Duncan at Final Round Martial Arts, and she has since trained with Muay Thai coach Artur Nowacki in 2012, and Shane Jung since 2013. She has had 5 Muay Thai fights, 3 kickboxing fights, and has competed in both BC and in the U.S.

Alex trained in Thailand under 'Bee' Monkoldej Sitthepitak, former Lumpinee and Rajadamnern Stadium number 1 ranked fighter, and briefly with Sangtiennoi Sor Rungroj, legendary champion during the "golden era" of Muay Thai. After her trip to Thailand Alex went on to earn second place in a USEACA tournament in Tacoma, WA.

Alex has been a coach at Black Box MMA since 2013, sharing her love of martial arts with students of a variety of ages and skill levels. From the newest beginners to more experienced amateur fighters, Alex's teaching style is well-suited to building a strong foundation and a broad repertoire of Muay Thai and kickboxing techniques.
