In March, he opened a traditional Muay Thai Kickboxing school called Total Boxing. Total Boxing is located in Alpharetta Georgia and offers everyone, of all ages, a relaxed, no-pressure Muay Thai Kickboxing school. Joe celebrated his sixty ninth birthday with twelve rounds of sparring and has every intention to do that again in celebration of his seventieth birthday this Wednesday morning at the school. Also, in honor of his seventieth birthday the school will be showcasing the students in their first belt test, this Saturday, June 12 at 10:30AM. Most of the students will be light sparring as part of their requirement for their belt and the public is welcome to watch.
“Joe is an incredible teacher and I am constantly impressed by his vast knowledge of martial arts. I started learning Muay Thai Kickboxing with Joe when he first opened Total Boxing. I feel privileged to have been taught by such a thorough and knowledgeable instructor; I know I am prepared for the upcoming test,” said Joshua Axton, student at Total Boxing, “Not to mention, I am really look forward to watching my teacher spar against a competitive Kick boxer Wednesday morning.”
Muay Thai Kickboxing means more to Joe than just a physical sport. Rather, the martial art has brought a spiritual motivation into his life that has sustained him through the years, even saving his life back in 2000. Muay Thai Kickboxing is extremely important to Joe and has empowered him to push past the limits of his age. This empowerment is reflected in his teaching style at Total Boxing and all of the students have benefited by his constant analysis of his teaching methods. “I have pushed my beginners way past anything that might be expected at another school and I feel that the students know that as well,” said Joe Powers, instructor at Total Boxing, “At this point my life, it is important to me to try to give my students something genuine and unique.”
