Dylan has been to thailand over 20 times and is the best instructor I've ever trained with, his classes are always fun, exciting and he breaks the sport down like nobody I've ever seen.

Dylan is the most energetic, passionate and knowledgable Muay Thai instructor I've ever met. Gavin been to Thailand on numerous occasions and trained at different gyms there, I can firmly attest to the quality of coaching that him and his team provide. He's a true asset to VT-1 Gym and the Australian Muay Thai circuit.

Dylan teaches in a way that allowed me to fall in love with muay thai the way he obviously does. As a result of this I believe that I got so much more out of his classes than simply learning techniques.

Having trained at multiple gyms in Australia and Thailand I can honestly say Dylan is the best coach Ive had the pleasure of training under. His passion for muay thai really shines through in his classes and it rubs off on his students like you wouldn't believe!

I have been involved in martial arts for over two decades and have come across many great teachers and coaches. Dylan is one of those. Formidable knowledge, experience and a very passionate instructor.

Great educator and coach! Dylan has a clear method of instruction that ensures his classes flow well and his students get a thorough workout! It is no surprise that his classes are continually over-flowing with students!

My trainer Dylan is an outstanding coach; who has not only given me alot of technical tips with Muay Thai, but is a fun, easy going and lively teacher! He has enriched my love of the sport through his enthusiasm, as well as his indepth knowledge of the intricate strategies and power of the sport.

I've trained at Gyms in the US, Thailand, and Syndey. Dylan is the best instructor I've ever had and runs one of the best gyms (of any kind) I've ever been to. He keeps things entertaining, pushes people hard, but makes training fun! He also runs a VERY safe and clean gym. Dylan treats the beginers with the same respect, and cheer as he treats veterens. He remmbers everyone's name and makes my wife and son (who also train at VT-1) very comfortable. Martial arts gyms can be intimidating, Dylan makes it feel like one big family! You won't get out of there without improving your MT at ANY level.

I have trained in many gyms through out the east coast of Australia and by far Dylan and Vt-1 are the absolute best gym I have been to. I wouldnt dream of joining another gym anywhere else, Dylan runs classes with an amazing energy and privately his way of teaching technique to students is certainly one of the best. You couldnt go wrong with training at vt-1.

Dylan is the best trainer i have ever had. He makes his gym vt1 very warm and welcoming and I always looked forward to his classes. I recommend anyone looking to train at vt1 to do it, as it is a great experience!

Dylan has been coaching me for nearly seven years now. I am 63 years old and suffer from Parkinson's Disease. His encouragement has kept me going, especially through my "down" times. I attribute my mobility to this positive attitude. He runs the best gym I've ever been to. His community-mindedness extends to sponsoring me to raise money for PD. Last year we raised $7000 and this year we're aiming for $10k. He is well respected in the MT community.

Dylan is a very thorough coach with a structured program. I would recommend him as a great coach to learn basic skills right through to advanced kick boxing techniques. Including tight fitness training.

Dylan is incredibly passionate and experienced in Muay Thai. At the very least a world class instructor with a wealth of knowledge that he teaches in a very easy to understand manner.

Dyl is an extremely enthusiastic and professional coach! I trained with him for 2.5 years and loved every minute of it. I trained for my first fight with Dylan whilst I was still in my last semester of Uni and he went out of his way to make time for me so that I could still get my uni work done, go to work AND train. I won my fight in the first round which is testament to Dylan's ability as a coach and the time and effort he puts into every one of the members at VT-1.

Dylan is one of the most talented, enthusiastic and committed coaches ever! When he's not on the matts with his students he's traveling the world learning new techniques and strategies to teach us in new unique and fun ways, to make the learning of muay thai a more cultural experience. if it wasn't for Dylan i don't think i would have the passion i have for Muay Thai that i do have today

Dylan is hands down the most technical and engaging instructors I've had the pleasure of being under. As deadly as he is handsome, Dylan's Muay Thai is unparalleled.

Dylan is a great coach. Regardless of the size of his classes, he always takes time out to learn everyone's name and to provide them with personal feedback. He constantly tries to improve his training methods through various means and he even brought someone over from Thailand to assist us in our training! I don't think there is a better gym in Sydney.

This guy knows what he is talking about when it comes to Muay Thai! He is a sick fighter and even better coach. Not only does he know how to get you off your ass and keep you motivated, he is able to break down those intricate aspects of fighting and make them simple and easy to understand. He is always evolving his coaching methods and extremely pro active in improving each and everyone of his students' ablilties.

I have been training with Dylan for 7 years now, and I am still coming back every day to learn more. He has a hunger to continue learning and is constantly going out into the world to improve himself and us, his students! His classes always have purpose which allow you to really thrive and develop. Great guy to hang around as well!

I've trained martial arts for 20 years and had dozens of other coaches for other sports, Dylan has the X factor. Dylan's knowledge, along with an infectious energy and enthusiasm inspires you to attain goals you never thought you could if you will let him. I know he truly loves his students and works to provide customized coaching to any student that invests themselves, no matter what level you are now or capable of. I moved back to the States this year and miss his gym every day. If you live near VT-1 and don't train there, your missing one of the treasures of Australia.

I was an active member of vt1 gym but had to quit for a while though to hsc but honestly dylan is hands down the best instructor I have ever had. He makes workouts fun and makes me laugh. He is more than an instructor to everyone in the gym but he is like a brother as he always stands by your side and supports and encourages you. I feel so privileged to have had dylan as an instructoraas he is unfailingly patient. His enthusiasm is contagious and he inspires me to be more disciplined and dedicated. Thanks dylan for everything! I dont think I could have asked for a better instructor.
