Sasan Haghighat Joo
Boxing Coach

Sasan was born and raised in Port Coquitlam, Canada, and began training in various mixed martial arts and wrestling at the age of four. Sasan began his journey in boxing at the Astoria Hotel with the guidance of coach Terry Cooke. Boxing competitively was serious for Sasan from the start. In his boxing career, he has amassed multiple golden gloves, golden boy, and provincial and national titles by the time he was only 19. He has also won gold as an Olympic Qualifier, and represented Canada at the 2015 Pan-American Games.

As a coach Sasan is patient, welcoming, understanding that each person is different, and encourages students to learn at their own pace.
