Although we don't know each other personally, as I reflect on 2013 I know I need to thank you. Bak in May, I began working with a boxing trainer, Adam Esposito who learned his mitt training from your program. Prior to May I had no boxing experience except group boxing fitness classes. To be honest, I had seen people do pad work and although I though it looked really cool, it completely scared me because I knew I could not be good at it.
Over the past 7 months, I have experienced growth that I never thought possible. I may still be far from the overall physical appearance goals I have for myself, but for the first time I believe I will get there. Mitt work had improved my overall attitude towards working out and, in many ways, my life.
I have put in the time and effort. I take pride in improving my skills every week. And to be completely honest, when Adam posts videos of us doing drills and someone of your caliber "likes" it, I feel a sense of accomplishment. Adam has pushed me when needed, believed in me when I didn't believe in myself and taught me a skill I never thought I could learn. Thank you for teaching him what he needed to know to be able to make such an impact on my life. I even began bloggin to share my experiences. Others have since wrote me to let me know that I have inspired them to want to do pad work and/or at least get on a fitness routine. I am sure that you get satisfaction out of seeing your clients grow and improve. However, I don't think you know how far the limbs of your tree are spreading and the great effect that is being made in people's lives. that is why I needed to reach out to you let you know and say thank you... from the bottom of my heart. OI look forward to continuing my progress. Thanks Again!

I have had a fascination with the #mayweatherstylemittwork ever since I started watching HBO 24/7 De La Hoya vs Mayweather. Shortly there after, I found Coach Rick. Back then I'd just watch the videos for fun, but really had no reason to actually learn it and neither did I know any trainers that taught it in the Los Angeles Area. Now it's EVERYWHERE. But I wanted to teach it properly with the help of TOP NOTCH instruction. After about 2 months of non-stop practice and execution, I am now certified by the World's Foremost Expert in mittology. 🙏 for the growth and ecstatic to be part of the #mittologyfamily @coachrick23. I can't be more happy with my investment into the program and foundation.
Good Day to you coach Rick,
I have been you avid fan and follower of your work for quite a while now and I just want to say thanks for the inspiration. Your Mittology program has been a big inspiration of my MittMASTER program out here in Bangkok, Thailand and as of now I'm still the only one who can train clients and fighters with this training system. I learned a lot from you, a WHOLE LOT, Ones again, thank you and I hope to get your blessings in what I do which was inspired after what you made great.

I bought the videos and started corresponding with Coach Rick in 2010 and grew to be addicted with his Mittology program. I also watched Roger Mayweathers tapes trying to figure the system out but didn't have the time or resources to break it down. So I was ecstatic when I came across Coach Rick's videos! Since then Coach Rick has grown to be a close friend and mentor as I also am a boxing trainer working with World Champions in all combat sports and also with TITLE Boxing Club Ann Arbor Michigan. Recently I was honored to be awarded the 1st Level 3 Elite Certification in Mittology. And it is now being taught to trainers all over the world through TITLE Boxing which has teamed up with Coach Rick, the journey has been more than wonderful to this point and I am looking forward to the future through Mitology and more important with my good friend Coach James Ricky Coward! When you are bless to be trained by the best... Invest in @COACHRICK23 his system works, took someone like me and now I train current, former, and future world champs...coachrickthemittologist.com It works!!

Sorry to bother you coach, but I just wanted to say a huge thank you of genuine gratitude. Since I first stumbled across your videos on YouTube, my life has changed beyond recognition.....for the better. Despite my background being in professional sport & medicine, I ended up being a paramedic for 13 yrs in Europes largest council estate, same as your projects, dealing with all kinds of twisted people, witnessing things I wouldn't wish on anyone. (Lots of things you can relate too, I'm sure with your background).....and now I'm training amateur & professional boxers!!
This is just the beginning....
Thank you again coach,
