Zinkin has recruited and trained many fighters from the colligate and amateur ranks into champion level professional fighters including Cain Velasquez and Daniel Cormier.

A critical component of any professional fighter’s development is top level training. Zinkin is closely affiliated with the world famous American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) in San Jose, CA. Trainers at AKA include a host of renowned martial experts including Brazilian jiu-jitsu master Leandro Vieira, Derek Yuen, Javier Mendez, Andy Fong and Zinkin’s Bob Cook.
