There aren’t many coaches out there as revered as the British Army Lead Technical Coach - Ben Stewart. An AIBA 2 star coach, GB Coach and former England Talent Pathway Assistant Coach, Ben has consistently coached at the coal-face of high performance boxing. Ben speaks with passion and enthusiasm about the Army’s high performance programme especially regarding how they structure their approach to development. ‘We spread our bets.’ Ben goes on to speak about this philosophy and the learning principles behind it.
