New to our team, Alex Millette is the youth program developer and instructor at 374 MMA. Teaching students aged 12 to 16, Alex is well-versed in instructing and educating teenagers. He is currently a high school Mathematics and Physics teacher at École Secondaire du Sommet, in french school board in Nova Scotia, where he also started and runs a high school wrestling program. That being said, Alex brings a methodical, scaffolded, step-by-step approach to training. This means that he adjusts his training to include more or less detail, depending on the level of the student with whom he is working.
Having served in the Canadian Forces for several years, Alex is adamant that his students demonstrate dedication, discipline, and most importantly, restraint with the techniques they learn in class.
Being a teacher, he knows too well the damage that can be caused by bullying and see examples of it daily. He tolerates no bullying of any sort. His belief is that students who train in a martial art develop self-pride and self-confidence. These characteristics are important factors in mitigating bullying.
Alex is currently a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and also trains in boxing, muay thai, and submission grappling. In June of 2018, Alex received the award for “Coach of the Year” for his work in developing and running his school’s wrestling program. In January of 2018, Alex received a silver medal in his first submission grappling tournament then followed by a 4th place finish in his first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament and continues to place in the top 5 in every tournament he enters.
Alex hopes to develop a balanced curriculum of self-defence and competition techniques in order to have a well-rounded student.
Chris, one of our boxing coaches has about 10 years of experience and has competed at the amateur boxing level.
“Like a lot of our members, I started boxing to get back in shape. I love the training and competition so it didn’t take me long to establish a goal to compete.”
When Chris doesn’t have boxing gloves on he likes to surf, travel and play ball hockey.
