Coach Eric Dennison was born in Kingsport, TN and raised in Morristown, TN. He served in the Marine Corps for four years (during Desert Storm) as a machine gunner and was also in the security forces in Italy and Greece. He has been involved on and off in boxing since he was 9 years old. While in the Marine Corps, Eric won the Smokers boxing tournament. He and his fiancée, Meghan, have three children (Quinlan, Myah and Mycah).
When Quinlan was 6 years old, he started teaching him kickboxing and Jiu Jitsu. He reached out to teachers and others to gain knowledge in these martial arts. When he first walked into Temple Underground Internal Boxing Gym, he had no expectations of being able to learn more about martial arts. He has since changed his mind and believes that Coach G is “far superior to anyone” he has ever encountered.
