They need to stop! I keep hearing of fight gyms with coaches who have no real experience. I get irritated at these "boxing" and "kickboxing" coaches who have almost no real fight experience, outside of a few amateur fights. This is B.S! A coach doesn't have to be a champion to teach, but a coach should have been a fighter and have years of training and experience as a competitor. So, if you come across a twenty something year old instructor and you can validate his or her experience, don't spend your money.
