Coach Peyvand Honargohar is by far one of the best instructors I have met in any line of work I have been in, humble and respectful as a person but terrifying in the ring. Coach Pey is methodical, elegant, powerful, precise and attends to every athlete from beginner to Pro fighter to receive the best instruction possible to improve as a Muay Thai fighter.

Coach P is a great instructor. He goes over every move step-by-step to ensure everyone understands and pays close attention to every detail. He's very patient, very knowledgeable, and you can tell he truly wants to work with every student in class.

Coach P has an obvious dedication to helping his students succeed in whatever their goals are. The respect and patience he gives everyone, along with his incredible knowledge of the sport make him the influential coach he is.

Coach Pey always has a great class atmosphere that is full of detailed learning. Truly an instructor that only cares about the development of all his students no matter what your experience in muay tai is.

Coach Peyvand is a great instructor. He makes learning Muay Thai enjoyable and fun, while at the same time is precise in his teaching. He has a methodical approach tailored for everyone- from beginner to advanced. His passion for Muay Thai and patience are displayed during each and every class- he works with EVERYONE to ensure they get the 'technique of the day.' Taking his classes are always a humbling experience because he will always show you a different way of doing things, even techniques you thought you knew!

I have trained alongside Coach Peyvand for many years. He is clearly gifted both technically and physically, and has a level of expertise and knowledge far greater than most any coach out there. But one thing many may not know about Peyvand is his big heart. Peyvand is the kind of guy who genuinely cares about ALL his students before he even MEETS them. I believe it is this level of deep humility and respect which sets Peyvand apart from all the other coaches out there.

Pey's way to teach its very easy to understand because He takes time to see your technique and also tells you How you could improve your technique

A great fighter and a great coach are always hard to find. Pey is both. While his pedigree is hard to match, his intelligence, instinct, and understanding of the game are what allows me to say with confidence,Pey is one of the best! He shifts his approach to the needs of each fighter, creating strategy and training routines that meets specific needs. Beside all of his expertise, his positive and respectful approach to his students and the Art are what I appreciate the most. Peyvand is a great coach and great person.

Patient, knowledgable, been in the ring and very adaptable to each student. Peyvand's devotion and passion makes him by far the best trainer and teacher around.

Exhibiting finesse and skill with ease in his discipline, Pey's ever calm and affable personality makes his wealth of knowledge easily accessible for anyone taking a class. Whether you have been learning Muay Thai for years or just started, he takes the time to personally provide even the smallest of corrections and instructions without ever having an air of impatience or frustration which is a credit to both him and his upbringing in this art. Peyvand has an ability to encourage and motivate all his students to achieve the most they can without ever having to utter a word. No matter how awkward it may seem or feel at first, he helps put you at ease and before you know it the movements start flowing almost naturally through you. I am grateful that my introduction to this art form is through his instruction.

I am so thankful that i have the privilege to train with Coach Pey at Tier 1 Training Facility. He pushes me to be the best fighter i can. When i get frustrated or upset that i cant complete a move, he instructs me to take a breather and come back swinging and kicking hard than before. Peyvand really is the BEST Muay Thai Coach anyone could have. Thanks Coach P!!!!

Not only as an instructor, but as an all around person, I have never met anyone as patient, encouraging, and motivational as Coach Pey. He puts his time into teaching everyone, whether they be a beginner or have been practicing for years, making sure they're always pushing themselves and doing the best they can. Even outside of Muay Thai he's there to support and motivate you in whatever it may be you want to accomplish. As a beginner myself I am beyond thankful I have such an awesome instructor. There is no way I could be doing as much as I am if it weren't for Coach Pey.

Coach Pey is such an amazing instructor. His passion for muay Thai is unbelievable. His classes are Fun, challenging, and never boring. I am very lucky to train with the best at tier1 training facility. I started his class knowing nothing and he was been so patient and worked with me. With coach P's training I will be in the ring in no time!

I would expect this level of knowledge from someone much older. Coach P understands what best fits my style of learning and adapts to ensure I learn as much as possible during each class. He is patient and takes the time to teach me the proper techniques. I would highly recommend him to anyone from beginners to advanced practioners.

If I had to describe Coach Peyvand in one word: PATIENT. Of course, honest, admirable, perfectionist, understanding, supportive, motivating, and encouraging would also work! My children and I are very lucky to train with him. Coach Peyvand does not mind explaining something over and over again until you get it right, and he does it gladly! It's obvious he has passion for what he does, and it's contagious to all his students!

Coach Peyvand is amazing at everything he does, but his real talents lie within Muy Thai. He's been fighting under the famous Saekson Janjira for years and now is expanding the fighting style. Peyvand is exceptionally patient and will work very hard to allow his students to reach their full potential. I don't know anyone who hasn't tried his class and not returned. Whether you're trying to fight professionally, learn self defense, or just add a workout to your routine, Coach Peyvand is the best Muy Thai teacher around!

I have trained with Peyvand ever since I started in Muay Thai and I have to say, he is always positive and willing to help you achieve your goals. He is trained under Saekson Janjira so you know he is legit. Great fighter, great trainer, he will certainly be able to get you where you want to be, in muay thai and in life.
