Rob Cipriano started boxing at a young age at the Waterbury P.A.L., more for recreation and less for sport. In 2002 I fell in love with Muay Thai, the art of 8 limbs, training under Kru Rich De los Reyes and actively competing.
Always looking to expand my art, I decided to take my training internationally and head to Thailand, the birth place of Muay Thai. With an extensive stay at the world renown Fairtex Boxing Camp in Bangplee with Master Tim and training with some of the best Thai boxers in the world.
Also an extensive stay in Curtitiba, Brazil training under Bruno Carvalho, 1 of Brazil’s best strikers and training under American Top Team striking coach, Katel Kubis. While still a competitor, I turned my love a fighting to the joy of coaching and have trained multiple champions both male and female.
In 2006, I started training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Currently hold the rank of brown belt and 2011 Pan American champion with many other titles and championships.
