A Serious Question for Contact Sport Coaches
I am seriously considering returning to my old workplace: riekes.org
Among other things it is a high level athletic training center. I left before on very good terms and feel comfortable that I will be welcomed back. Although I have a basic common sense knowledge of physical training, nutrition, and workout structure, I could take the opportunity working at this place to really focus on bringing my knowledge to the next level. In short I can get training from my professional coworkers on an incredibly wide range of technical athletic knowledge.
Omega, SamboSteve, Serge and other high level trainers and coaches: If I wanted to gain the knowledge that a MMA coach needs on all aspects of physical training, what specific skills would I request to be trained at in my workplace?
Specifically, I can only think of gaining proficiency in coaching olympic lifts, nutrition for muscle recovery, and how to structure workouts where you also learn specific skills. What am I missing?
As far as my personal qualifications up to this point, I am still a far way away from coaching. I am a low blue belt and only have an 6-1 striking record, but if I keep training perhaps in 5 years I will be very happy to have taken advantage of this opportunity.
Thanks in advance for your recommendations. Also, please forgive me if I am slow in answering to replies. I am without internet most of the time for the next month.
