We use boxing as a pedagogical tool. To become a good boxer, you’ll need discipline and courage. It’s about focus and perseverance to keep fighting until the goal is reached. Furthermore, boxing revolves around personal responsibility. It’s a mindset that helps them achieve success in society and work life.
The tools from boxing and the metaphors around them, correlate strongly with life and all its struggles. We can be in the fighting zone, in the ring corner or in countdown. This metaphor is very useful for the young men, and it helps them think and learn how they respond to and manage different situations. Our primary focus is learning how they get back into the fight.
The trainer plays an important part in boxing, while in real life the counsellor plays an equally important part as a mentor and sparring partner. On a regular basis we train the individual how to get the best partnership with his counsellor and his network in general.
