Coaches Protecting Fighters
As an instructor or coach you have to let your fighters get out their and mix up with good fighters. Many coaches protect their students by keeping them in what they think is an advantageous situation. As a fighter, I feel that I have to challenge myself and take on the best opposition. I want to know where I stand. If I win, I belong there. If I lose, I quickly learn what I need to fix. Again, QUICKLY learn. That means that I progress faster and I don't develop a false sense of security. I want my athletes to be fearless in knowing that they can handle themselves against quality opposition. So, challenge yourselves and don't be afraid to fight the best.
