Ahmed Zareh

Muay Thai Program Director

Ahmed brings a unique and multifaceted vision to Trifecta’s Muay Thai program. As a trained architect, he has a talent for analysing martial arts conceptually and breaking down techniques to their key spatial ideas. This analytical perspective and meticulous approach compliments the vast experience of Trifecta’s veteran Muay Thai coaches.

Ahmed began his martial arts journey in Karate at the age of 9, but grew frustrated with its rigidity and ritualism. He rediscovered martial arts in 2008 through Muay Thai and BJJ, and swiftly grew addicted to these organic and realistic art forms. Muay Thai became an integral part of his daily life ever since.

Upon moving to from New York to Singapore in 2011 to advance his career in Architecture, he was surprised and frustrated with the lack of competition opportunities and widespread, outdated training methods. He transitioned to training and competing in BJJ, winning a silver medal in international competition after only 3 months of training.

Finally, after two years of balancing his passion and his profession, Ahmed took a leap of faith and quit his job to pursue a dream. He began to train full-time and to compete in amateur Muay Thai events. He now balances his own design and branding practice and a full daily training schedule while teaching at Trifecta Martial Arts. Along with his responsibilities as Muay Thai Program Director, Ahmed is in charge of the interior design of each new branch.

Ahmed is a multiple-time Singaporean BJJ champion and an active MMA fighter in the ‘Malaysian Invasion MMA’ (MIMMA) promotion. He believes firmly in the importance of competition in self-discovery and character-building for both adults and children.
