In 1988 after graduating he moved to the United States where he began coaching full time and started a tennis academy with his brother Andres Molina (Director of Tennis at Palma Ceia). In 1994 he moved to Orlando where he was a tennis instructor at the Dolphin Resort and Lake Cane. From there he transitioned to an Adult Tennis Academy at West Orange Country Club until moving to Apollo Beach three years ago. While at Apollo Beach, Ignacio developed and improved the game for countless players. Under his tenure, the Apollo Beach Ladies finished no lower than 2nd in the Suncoast League and won 1st Place in the ALOT League for 2 years in a row. The Apollo Beach 8.5 Men’s Team won sectionals for their first time ever.
