My first experience as a boxing coach began in 1980, at a time when I was in the Russian Army. I needed to have sparring so that I could get the proper training required in order to compete. Not having a coach myself, it fell on me to train six other soldiers to become my regular sparring partners. Towards the end of the ’90s I moved my life to Canada, and started to coach boxing again in 2009, this time formally. At the start of my Canadian career, I was teaching boxing classes while cornering professional boxers and MMA fighters. Then in 2011, both my attention and interest slowly started shifting towards amateur boxing. During this time, I created and started building up my own team, Goldenstars Boxing.
Boxing has always been the most honest sport I know. Words like honor, integrity, and loyalty take on true meanings through the sport. They become more than just pretty words — they become a way of living. Boxing brings people of different backgrounds, nationalities, and philosophies together so that they may train, compete, and find friendship inside and outside of the gym. This is the type of environment my students and I have been able to create with our team. Goldenstars is a group of young, dedicated athletes, consisting of both active competitors and recreational boxers. Every day, they push each other towards greatness. In my time coaching this team, I have seen shy and insecure students become strong and confident boxers. I have seen cocky students with poor attitudes become humble and respectful. We all share the gym as our temple, and we are all teachers and students within it. For us, boxing is not just a sport. It is our religion, our self-improvement, our lifestyle.
It has taken me more than half my life to develop my own ideas of what teaching boxing should be, and I am still continuing to learn every day. These ideas are nowhere better reflected than in the team I have built at Goldenstars Boxing, in no small part due to tireless work ethic and dedication of the students themselves.A Message From Vlad Goldenstein
