actually its a 2 part question

what do you think it takes to be a good coach-- do you think the coach needs to be a active or retired fighter to be a good coach


other question

how would you approach a fighter that only works stand up but his last 2 fights were lost because of his lack of ground fighting-- when you tell him he needs to work on the ground more he says "OK" but never does it

how would you handle this at your gym

I think being a good coach requires being the only constant in the gym. The guy that will argue with young fighters so they understand the big picture of teamwork. Make fighters do things they did not think they could do. To inspire a fighter when he thinks the fight is lost. To take a fighter that is in tears the weeks leading up to a huge event and make him trust his work ethic and desire. To know that he has done more than the other guy could have. It's also about letting fighters beat on you so they think they are better than they are. Last but not least, push his body, mind, and soal past the point of breakdown. He then knows he has walked thru the walls and can keep going. Most of all would be caring about the peson like he is your own. Wins are an incredible feeling, losses feel like our little brother got beat up and there was nothing you could do to help PM
