Asian boxing coaches gather in Baghdad for AIBA course

Date : 15 Apr 2019

Baghdad, Iraq, April 15, 2019: The Iraq Boxing Federation hosted an International Boxing Association (AIBA) 2-star Coaching Course recently in Baghdad under Tunisian instructor Makrem Grami, who has worked on several previous development programmes in the Arab region, reports the Asian Boxing Confederation (ASBC).

The previous AIBA 2-star Coaching Course in Asia was hosted by the Boxing Federation of India in Rohtak last November just before the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships.

Current certified and active AIBA 1-star coaches, who have completed an AIBA 1-Star Coaching Certification Course and the corresponding certification course, were eligible to take part in the 2-star AIBA Coaching Course in Baghdad. Altogether 26 coaches attended the course.

Asia will be hosting several upcoming AIBA events, five ASBC Asian Confederation Boxing Championships in 2019 and the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games; education, therefore, is one of the most important topics for the Asian Boxing Confederation and the affiliated national federations.
