Arthur Butron, BS, CSCS, Pn1


My name is Arthur Butron.  Most of my clients and students know me as Coach Art.


I’m a graduate of California State University of Monterey Bay (CSUMB) where I received my bachelors in Kinesiology with a concentration in Exercise Science.

I’m also Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) with the NSCA and a Level 1 Precision Nutrition Coach.

However, my academic and professional achievements would not have been possible without my experiences training at Fairtex Muay Thai in the Bay Area which started back in 2003.  


Over the years, I’ve spent countless hours working with students and clients who simply want to look and feel better to combat sports athletes who have worked through the ranks to turn pro.

Since 2009, I’ve been coaching and teaching Muay Thai at Kugtar Mix Martial Arts Academy.  I also earned my 4th degree blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Master Vince Vanderlipe.

In the summer of 2014, I began offering small group training sessions inside Kugtar MMA and have branched out offer online coaching.


While everyone has their niche in life, my happens to be training fighters.

Not just fighters in the cage or the ring. I’m also referring to the average person who’s been struggling to lose the extra pounds they’ve gained over the years that’s zapped their confidence and energy.

You see…I believe everyone’s a fighter because life can be a fight.  As a husband and busy father of two young boys, I understand the struggle.

As a coach, I strive to help each and every one of my clients to look, move and feel better through a system that’s inspired by the fighter’s spirit.
