Fighters Go Here!

 

 

About Coach Paulie...

In 1992, Coach Paulie began boxing in South Florida and went on to win the Florida Golden Gloves Title in 1998.

In 2001, under the tutelage of renowned boxing Coach Milton Lacroix, Coach Paulie learned how to develop a fighter’s speed and punching power by employing a system that focused on natural body mechanics.

In 2003, he began specifically working with fighters on boxing for MMA at Roger Krahl’s American Top Team Sunrise where he began innovating his own adaptive system of striking.. Rather than teach fighters “his style of striking,” Coach Paulie learned to adapt styles based on the physiological, psychological, and strategic needs of each fighter for each fight.

In 2006, Paulie relocated and found a home at Din Thomas’ American Top Team Port St. Lucie where he was supported by Din and entrusted as the head boxing coach to work with a stable of Champions and Contenders on improving their “hands.”

Coach Paulie is currently the head boxing coach at the Renato Tavares Association’s Legacy Martial Arts and continues to work with fighters at American Top Team.

Considered a “Coach of Coaches,” his exposure to the “fight game” over the past 25 years coupled with deep passion and scientific knowledge enables him to create conditions that accelerate confidence and performance based on the needs of each fighter.

 

What his fighters are saying...

“Paulie has been instrumental in the success of our whole team. His unique approach to striking offers a creative and practical system that is really difficult to defend. Without his dedication and boundless effort, our team couldn’t have made the strides that we have made whether in real combat or in the training room”

Din Thomas UFC Vet, Head Coach at American Top Team

“Paulie is one of the best when it comes to boxing for MMA. His style is reminiscent of Iron Mike Tyson, speed, and raw power. When I trained with Paul, I was in peak condition. He was with me when I knocked out one of my opponents with devastating hooks. He is by far one of the best I have ever worked with.”

Luigi Fioravanti UFC Vet

“Paul is a dynamic and knowledgeable coach. He is an incredibly patient instructor and is able to tailor a game plan to each individual’s abilities and body types. Paul has been an irreplaceable coach and head cornerman for many fighters, ranging from amateur boxers, to stars from the Ultimate Fighter to the current M-1 Global World Heavyweight Champion”

Paul Marfort Professional Muay Thai

“Paul created a style that works perfect for MMA. He makes sure that he adapts to your body and the opponent has no idea what’s coming.”

 

Marlon Georges Pro MMA Fighter

“Before I started training with coach Paulie I didn’t know anything about boxing or combination.  What I love about every combination is that coach always has me working the head and the body!! I Love it! I’m glad to have a coach like you and thank you for making my hands the way they are now…”

Carlos Lopez Pro MMA Fighter

“When I met coach Paulie I had already some boxing experience but working with Paulie Gloves took my stand up game to the next level.  There is no other coach in the game today that I feel is better.  He has taught me and coached me through a lot of good and bad times I really appreciate everything he has done for me and wouldn’t train with anyone different!”

Phil "Bam Bam" Daru Pro MMA Fighter, S&C Coach for American Top Team

“Coach Paulie, in my opinion, is one of the best in the business today. When I first started working with coach, I was a mess. Especially since most of my fight game was based on grappling. Over time he’s opened my eyes on how the standup game really works and has even gotten me to be more relaxed while striking. He has now transformed me into a better fighter and for that I cannot thank him enough!!!

Jason Gladly Pro MMA Fighter

“Paul is a dynamic and knowledgeable coach. He is an incredibly patient instructor and is able to tailor a game plan to each individual’s abilities and body types. Paul has been an irreplaceable coach and head cornerman for many fighters, ranging from amateur boxers, to stars from the Ultimate Fighter to the current M-1 Global World Heavyweight Champion”

Dr. Bret White Treasure Coast Family Sports and Chiropractic

“Before I started working with Paulie I considered myself a competent striker. After working with him for the past year or so I have so much confidence in my hands, He has given me the tools to deal with any opponent. Thanks for the deadly weapons coach!”
