Judges Senior project

My goal for this senior project was to learn in the art of boxing and gaining the experience of training a new fighter. I’ve learned many techniques needed to train a starting fighter. Important skills to teach are coordination, footwork, combinations, etc. Strength training could also be implied while teaching these skills.
In my research paper I described the struggles a fighter must endure to prepare for a fight. This also involves a bit of diet and discipline a fighter needs to be successful. Learning this helped me answer my student’s questions as to why we needed to train the way we did. We trained a very strict training camp.
My product is to teach the basic principles of boxing to my student. I teach him all the physical skills of boxing as well as the psychological parts of it as well. Mentality was a huge bridge to cross. A couple of obstacles we faced were height, distance of the gym, and time.
My student is 6’ 1” and it was difficult for him to learn a couple of skills because he was not used to keeping his balance in a fight scenario. The distance and time problems were together because we’d have to leave early to train a lot of time.
My project has helped me learn the perspective of a boxing coach. I realized being a boxing coach is a bit different from many other sports. The psychological aspect was the most difficult because what was needed to be taught was that boxing is not a game because you cannot “play” boxing. This was a fear for Alex (student) as he had never felt the adrenaline of a fight and did not know how to respond to punches being thrown intended to hurt him. In the end it felt good to help my student overcome a fear.
This senior Capstone Career Project is a great opportunity for students to get a taste of what they would love to do as a job. When the project is done right you can learn a lot about yourself. I’d like to thank you for your time in reading this paper.
