Got into a good discussion with someone today about coaching. A very good argument can be made for all of them, but the question is what do you think is the most important job of a coach?

a) Training and teaching a fighter to improve his skills.

b) Install confidene, and enable a fighter to push his limits and improve.

c) Getting the best out of your fighter on fight night.

d) Surround your fighter with the right coaches and training partners to help get the max out of his potential.


I know these are all important and picking "all of the above" would be easy!! But what do you think is the most important?

Imo, B with a splash of A.  Install Confidence….motivate a fighter to push his (or her;)) limits all the while improving (their skills).

I think the answer is – It depends on your role in coaching and it depends on the athlete and his/her needs. 


there is no cut and dry here.  for example, i have a technical boxing coach… i want him to improve my boxing… he has much less to do with my tactical gameplan then my mma coach does.  so there are different roles for different coaches. you have to know your role and know what your fighter needs… that is you most important job!
