On November 2017, Boxing Canada hosted its first AIBA 1-star Coaching certification course at INS Québec (Institut National du Sport du Québec) in Montréal. The course taught by the instructor Fabricio Leclercq from France. Twenty-four Canadian coaches from across the country were selected to go through the first level of international certification.
Among those 24 were two coaches from Southpaw Boxing gym, Calgary, Alberta Warren Grenier and Vlad Goldenstein.These newly obtained certifications allow both Warren and Vlad to corner and to coach around the globe. Southpaw Boxing Gym and Goldenstars Boxing Team are proud to have internationally recognized coaches in their corner!
