About this pro

-As an elite international professional trainer, the depth of my expertise acquired after 29 years as a full contact fighter, student, and teacher is profound, powerful, and unique.  I have a genuine care and joy for empowering people and helping them reach their goals beyond what they envisioned.  I have an intrigue for the art of pedagogy and fascinated by discovering what reaches an individual. 

-A specialist in boxing, self-defense, martial arts, sports science and body sculpting I have taught 1000's in El Paso, the USA, and Mexico from children, parents, and collegiate/amateur/professional athletes to the most elite of law enforcement and military special forces offering services in:

*Personalized training for all body types/levels *Boxing competition for amateurs and professionals *Anti-bullying, *Youth Mentorship *Athlete Development *Nutrition *Awareness *Injury Rehabilitation *Elderly Fortification, *Company/Group Training *Fat Loss *Key Note and Motivaitonal Speaking.

-As a voice teacher I achieved a Bachelors of Music degree from the University of Texas at El Paso in 2015 after seven years of rigorous study in the studios of opera sensations Dr. Sing-in Han, Dr. Orit Eylon, Dr. Garineh Avakian, and Mr. Brian Downen.  The curriculum to become a professional vocalist includes years of studying international languages and I formally sang in 10 of them in concert for the University of Texas.  With a concentration in commercial music, I have formally performed in a dozen genres and am also a lyricist, song writer, and composer. 

I enjoy witnessing the learning and growth of the individual.  It is a joy and honor for me to be able to empower people with a genuine care and intrigue to discover how to best reach a student.  I am fascinated by the art of pedagogy and value the satisfaction of helping others with my broad level of expertise and experience.

    Coach Robert is an excellent coach that will individualize your training for wherever you are in your journey. He pays a lot of attention to detail and technique. I have learned a lot in the short time I have been coming to train here and am looking forward to continuing my training at Forge Boxing.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We begin with an honest consultation which includes the students goals and an explanation of how the depth of my expertise can achieve continual progress.  We have an initial lesson/session to gauge a starting point and provide a realistic assesment of where exactly an individual is to immediately know what plan and path to take.  I enjoy discovering how an individual learns and am fascinated by watching the dynamic growth, skill development, and overall empowerment of my students.  I actually care about every single one, join them on their journey, and guide them every step of the way.

How did you get started teaching?

-As a professor of Sports and Martial Science, my education began with my father and uncles who were boxers. At age 14, I studied under Kung Fu professor Cynthia Horton of El Paso, TX. Over the years I studied under dozens of teachers learning other arts such as ninjutsu, aikido, jeet kune do, American kickboxing, muay thai, jiujitsu, and mixed martial arts.  I have had the honor of learning from among the world’s elite including world champions like Nate Campbell in Jacksonville, Florida, Don Nacho Berinstain and camp Juan Manuel Marquez in Mexico City, Mexico. After 28 years of full contact fighting study and experience I am recognized and respected internationally for my professional knowledge and ability. I have now taught & trained 1000's througout El Paso, TX, the USA, and Mexico. 

-As a voice teacher I have given private lessons since my undergraduate studies and continue to do so after my graduation from the University of Texas with a Bacherlors in Music as a professional vocalist.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked internationally with absolute beginners of every shape and level, high school/collegiate athletes, televised professionals, and to the most elite of military and law enforcement.  Children, the average mom and dad, elderly, and special cases all get the same professional training tailored and personalized to them. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Everyday I am beyond fond to see the growth and progress of all my clientele. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Inquire about their experience and expertise.  Ask who have they learned from, who have they worked with, what have they done, and what range of level do they teach.
