About Coach Brady
Brady has known the Barker family, owners of Poway Martial Arts, for 11 years and has built a very close relationship with all of them. This is the gym where he first put on a pair of boxing gloves 11 years ago. From that point he was hooked! After only 4 months of training he had his first smoker fight. At that point Mr. B noticed some potential in Brady and asked him if he would be interested in teaching 1 or 2 classes a week. From there, he went on the start his amateur career, and after a few years he followed his dream of turning professional. He would have 2 fights in the Southern California area and 2 fights in Las Vegas, where he would later retire with a record of 2 wins (2ko) and 2 losses. After 10 years of fighting and training, he found that his true passion was teaching. Nothing makes him happier than to be in the gym all day long yelling at people to push harder and dig deeper (and when we say yell, we really mean it, you can hear him from the parking lot on any given day). While in Las Vegas he became friends with a neurologist who introduced him to Rock Steady Boxing. Brady knew that with his energy and love of teaching the sport, Rock Steady was something that he needed to make available to the area. When you train with Brady, you will feel his passion and love for what he does. There really is nothing that makes him more proud than to see someone progress and do something they didn’t know they had in them.
