Coach Chuck Martinez was one of the best coaches of my career. His coaching was beyond valuable and he had a plethora of knowledge to tailor make your style into championship material. He helped me greatly to getting my career back on track and as a coach he was always there for me! His effort and his awesome techniques from stand up/transitions to takedowns and all over game of real fighting helped me start winning again and get me back to UFC, on The Ultimate Fighter season 25 and I eventually won the whole show coming back out of nowhere!I have Coach Chuck Martinez to thank for that!

Hey there, I'm Basheer Abdullah, a former four-time Olympic coach. I had the pleasure of collaborating with Coach Chuck for about 7-8 years at the Arena Boxing Gym in San Diego, CA.
What stood out to me about him as a trainer were his profound passion for mixed martial arts, exceptional communication skills, dedication to training, and, personally, his meticulous preparation for each session.

Coach Chuck is the epitome of what you want in a coach. He’s not just someone who teaches you technique, he’s the kind of person who will take you to your wildest goals. When I met him 12 years ago he saw something in me that no one did. He spent everyday with me teaching me how to be the best martial artist, coach, teammate, person, father I could be. His lessons translate perfectly to life itself. The most selfless coach I’ve had in my 26 years as an athlete. He showed up no matter what, traveled, took me to different gyms to make sure I had everything I needed. Zero ego, and is still learning to this day. If you get the chance to know and  learn from him I couldn’t recommend anyone else!
