Episode #27 takes a look at Ric Shuttleworth et al’s model on ‘safe uncertainty’ and how it applies to boxing. Take a look at the Facebook page where his model is posted and a boxing specific one next to it. https://www.facebook.com/theboxingcoachespodcast/ Are the sessions we organise for our boxers destructive, constructive or somewhere in the middle?!?

It is an effort at applying his model to boxing. Love to hear your thoughts.
