"My son, Philip, has had the honor of working with Muz for the past ten years. As a middle school student, Philip was referred to Muz's clinic for group instruction. Shortly after, Philip began individual training. Over the years, Muz has taken a methodical approach to his physical development and training from the basics to highly sophisticated technical moves in freestyle and in folkstyle methods. Muz is a committed and enthusiastic instructor who focuses equally on the physical and psychological well-being of his students. His training was very effective as Philip progressed from a local competitor to a nationally ranked high school student to a heavily recruited college athlete. No matter what level you are, Muz will help you reach your highest potential and develop into a better wrestler. He will ask for excellence and give it back to you in return."

"Throughout my life, I’ve been exposed to many great wrestling coaches and I can confidently say, that without a doubt, Muzaffar is among the very best. During my time at Harvard, Muz helped me to develop the skills, mentality, and passion that I needed to realize my full potential and achieve my dreams. From a technical perspective, there is no one better. Muz is a master technician and his keen eye and attention-to-detail were instrumental in helping me to perfect my skillset. He introduced me to new wrestling techniques, taught me how to integrate them into my unique style, and drilled them with me until they were second nature. Perhaps more importantly, Muz helped me to forge mental toughness and resilience. He pushed me each and every day to break through psychological barriers and develop a mental edge that allowed me to compete with the very best. Last, but certainly not least, Muz’s loving attitude and witty sense of humor kept things light and made sure that wrestling was always fun. I wholeheartedly recommend Muz, as the opportunity to work with him is truly once-in-a-lifetime."
~ Walter Peppelman, 2x NCAA Division I All-American
"Muzaffar has been an invaluable asset to my coaching staff for the past 12 years. I've had many assistants in the past 26 years and I have to say that Muz is one of the best. He is so good at teaching the individual and then coordinating that into a team atmosphere. Our coaching styles mesh in many ways. I have seen first-hand when a student-athlete buys in to a program from Muz and excels. Another strength is that he is able to coach many different styles of wrestlers and weight classes. I have seen him coach lighter weights as well as heavy weights. One of his best traits is not just his wrestling knowledge but how he cares about those he coaches. Muz develops a bond and trust which makes it very hard to not be fully engrossed in the system. I know I am a better coach because of Muz and our wrestling program is surely at a higher level. "
~ Jay Weiss, Head Wrestling Coach Harvard University
"Muz has always provided a top notch practices. He teaches world class technique and makes sure the kid really understands the move before they leave the practice room. He also really makes great connections with kids and has them buy into the process. When I coached HS I sent all my wrestlers to him and send my own son as well. Couldn't recommend enough."
- Sam Novod
"For the best all-encompassing training in New England, you need to go see coach Muz. From basic technique to elite training and high level performance there is no one better. I'm the competitor and coach that I am because of Muz."
~ Steven Keith, 2012 NCAA All-American and 2x NWCA Academic All-American
"I have been lucky to have Muz coaching me for the past ten years. His decades of experience in wrestling gives him a rare insight into the sport that is very hard to find. The techniques learned from Muz can make you successful at any level of wrestling. While training under Coach Muz for several years, I progressed from a decent local middle school wrestler to a high school national champion and was highly recruited to wrestle division I in college. Muz’s coaching, training, and technique allowed me to jump levels in wrestling and become the successful wrestler that I am today. Muz’s goal is to see every one of his students succeed in the sport of wrestling. If you want to learn world-class technique and train from a man that has made his students successful wrestlers in every level of the sport, Muz Trained is the place to be!"
~ Philip Conigliaro
"I can’t say enough great things about Coach Muz. My son Julian Rios has been attending his practices since he was 5 years old. He teaches world-class technique while making sure the kids understand the moves. Coach Muz works hard to ensure every wrestler is successful and is very detailed with practices. He ensures that all his wrestlers have the best opportunity to learn to love the sport of wrestling. I would highly recommend Muz Trained Wrestling Club for any parents looking to have their kids develop and grow in the sport of wrestling."
~ James Rios
"Coach Muz’s training style has by far made the biggest impact on my son’s success. There are nuances in wrestling, critical to winning the big matches. With fewer wrestlers in the room, Muz can spot subtle changes during drilling to ensure the wrestlers are doing the moves correctly. It’s very important for wrestlers in high school to build good technique and fundamentals. Muz works on eliminating mistakes and bad habits. I also don’t believe there is a better freestyle coach in New England which has made my son comfortable in awkward positions and a much stronger, more confident wrestler on the mat. There are several excellent wrestling clubs in Massachusetts led by accomplished and committed coaches. However, Muz has a different coaching style born out of his time on the international stage and longtime coaching experience at the collegiate level which makes this club unique. You have to experience his practice a few times to understand the big impact he can have on elevating your profile in this sport. "
