Q&A With the Coach

Why did you start training?

I was fat when I was a child, and I didn’t want to be laughed at and called fat. I started boxing because I thought it would help me lose weight and gain muscle. When I won the championship and stood on the podium, I felt a sense of honor and pride. I made my family proud.

What do you love most about Boxing?

Even though boxing is an individual sport, I really enjoy the atmosphere of camaraderie during training. When we’re all exhausted at the end of a workout, the team spirit doesn’t diminish, but instead we shout loudly and give it our all. It’s the greatest respect for the coach’s training schedule.

When did you begin teaching Wrestling?

In my third year of junior high school, my启蒙教练 (啟蒙教練) said to me, “Guanteng, do you want to be a coach?” At that time, my成績 (chéngjì) (performance) wasn’t very good, so I told the coach, “But my成績 (chéngjì) (performance) isn’t very good.” The coach said, “Although everyone looks at成績 (chéngjì) (performance), a good athlete is not necessarily a good coach, and a good coach is not necessarily a good athlete.” Of course,成績 (chéngjì) (performance) is important, but the main thing is to have a heart that strives for improvement. From the third year of junior high school, the coach recommended me to teach boxing and aerobics classes to uncles and aunts in the community. I taught for about four years, until I graduated from high school.

What do you try to focus on when coaching?

Safety first, boxing skills are secondary. What is important is the etiquette in the boxing ring, and the character of boxing. No matter how good a boxer is, if their character is not good, it is all bad.

What is your goal as a coach?

To reach a higher level, achieve better results, gain more new knowledge, and create more excellent athletes.
