DAVID “DATO” GOGICHAISHVILLI
Our head coach Dato was born in the Democratic Republic of Georgia and started Muay Thai at the age of 15. Over the next decade, he amassed over 140 fights, fighting in Russia and all over Europe before moving to the US in 2012 and joining Tampa Muay Thai. He has since earned the respect of everyone as a coach, a father, a friend and all-around awesome person. When not teaching, you can usually find him taking a nap somewhere. Random fact: When he was young, Dato was on the school physics and math team.
