Robert Doerksen is the owner and head coach of Victoria Martial Arts. In 2011, he founded VMA with a mission to offer people a community where they were supported and encouraged to reach their fitness and martial arts goals. His passion towards pursuing excellence in training and coaching has no boundaries. As a coach, he is committed to finding new methods to push the limits of everyone that walks through the doors at VMA. Accountability is very important to Rob in a coach-client relationship. He expects 100% effort from trainees and in return works to deliver the most effective training prescription. He is constantly enhancing and upgrading his knowledge of the sport through experience, certifications, and workshop seminars. He has earned dozens of awards both locally and internationally, but the highlight of his fight career came in 2015 when he became the ISKA North American Kickboxing champion. Over the years, Rob has coached hundreds of amateur boxers/kickboxers and carved out several champions along the way. He continues to compete with the very top ranked pro-am kickboxers in the world and plans on fighting for an ISKA world title in the near future. During his career, Rob has had the good fortune to train with many excellent coaches; he calls his own coaching style a conglomeration of all of his previous coaches’ strengths.
