JT Smith - Behind the scenes of boxing

Strong Ambition Podcast

JT Smith was the one of the founders of United Boxing Club with Ryan Savage. They started with renting space from community clubs, until one day they found their own space. United grew with high quality athletes and as a Level 4 Boxing Coach, JT helped take athletes all the way to National Gold.  This is a great episode to understand importance of what to know as a young up and coming athlete. JT gives great advice to recognize the importance of the system of how amateur sport is organized, understand the rules of the sport, and the value of a certified coach that can help so much. When I first started in boxing competitively at United, JT was the first person I spoke with after the first class, I was sold. He has the insight of the sport from his experience and has a great technical approach to teaching athletes. Enjoy this episode and take some notes, as I know I even did when he went into some details of the high end national level requirements for carded athletes.  2:35 - JT comes on greetings w/ story meeting JT4:13 - JT introduces himself9:45 - Starting united boxing13:10  - JTs view on progression15:00 - back to progression - prize fighter - screening fighters - 16:45 - difference structure between prize fighting and (Olympic and amateur style) boxing21:55 - JT how matches are made in Olympic boxing, Talks about sanctioning body + origin24:15 - 6 things boxers need to work on29:00 - Rhyland reacts, appreciate ‘make sure you get a real coach’29:55 - Difference between Technique vs. Strategy33:15 - The boxing equation35:00 -  Rhyland reacts - exchanges reactionary, everything happens so fast it’s reactionary37:50 - Coach is greatest honest feedback38:50 - JT story about Gfs dad “ You more you know, the more you realize you don’t know”40:50 - Have some respect because most people are doing this for free42:11 - Drills importance43:35 - JT - sports save kids45:45 - Group learning is faster and better - group develops a culture - importance of journaling48:00 - Have to be creative with athletes, weird time for boxers (pandemic)48:50 - What’s the best advice you could give right now to help them focus?52:10 - Rhyland reacts  - focusing on skill development - perfect the jab attack/defense53:15 - JT - expresses the point that the basics and fundamentals you have segment training rather than mix it together55:00 - Summoning intrinsic motivation to workout when facing obstructions56:00 - Rhyland - talks about the addictiveness of sparring ‘crack cocaine of sparring’ 56:30 - Rhyland asks - Sparring is a test of the other training that you’ve been doing – JT talks about progressive coaching A -> B -> C calibrate specific to athlete57:57 - People get too fired up for the sparring itself rather than the test of ability58:30 - JT talks about belting programs 59:30 - Sparring reveals mistakes but never demonstrate what you are really good at60:50 - Rhyland asks JT about himself outside of boxing, briefly describe how you are challenging yourself these days67:45 - Rhyland - Anxiety of stepping into the ring69:05- Jt - What are we trying to do with these athletes besides the W?

Smith grew the tabletop convention management service over the last five years, but was almost forced to close when the pandemic forced all the tabletop gaming events on his system to cancel. We talk about that, and BGG convention manager Jeff Anderson gives us a look into what they have planned with their integration of the application.
