Default My first steps into training and coaching..

So after years of deliberating and procrastinating. I've decided to take the plunge and start training young boxers. I'm ganna train my son anyway, who's not yet in his teens, but i'm also ganna start to hopefully train others. I've spent time learning and helping out young amateurs in the past. Now the plan is to get into it more and dedicate more time.

I have a bit of an old school approach to things.

So, any advise for me fellas as i take this journey?

Oh and if anyone is ever in Islington ABC, say hello.

keep it simple in the beggining. fighters can only learn as mutch at the same time. WARM up and cool down properly so they dont get injury. learn how to have balance with the feets before anything else!! a car with less air in one of the tires will be unbalanced to drive. PM me if u have any questions

That's a great club to start your journey with - They must have well over 50 competing boxers at all levels - massive club.

Good luck mate.

Nothing wrong with the old school approach, these yappers will have you believing that, you are ignorant, if you dont know what they know.
There are ton's of training vid's on youtube, featuring many styles, see which one's work for you. One of the things Emmanuel Steward, would emphasize is proper balance and the basic's. Good luck to you, seems you were wise in your choice of gyms, plenty of quality sparring.

Maybe some people when they say 'old school' mean working hard and focusing on skills, others like yourself when you say 'old school' mean being a backwards ass retard who is scared of any advancements and growth. Old school is an ambiguous term so I'm asking him what he meant. Is that alright? Mind your own business, I don't want any input from you.

Old school is another term for uneducated.

for me, "old school" means "traditional".


someone who trains old school could very well use pushups instead of plyo ball pass. and most of the old timers i've worked with talk about how all they did, when they were young, for the first 6 months was a jab. now-a-days too many coaches try to teach tricks too early.


There's a balance between the old and the new. as a new trainer, stick with the fundamentals for your team's foundation.

good luck on your journey and check out this FREE online book by a really solid new school coach with old school wisdom.
