What is CounterPunch?
CounterPunch combines Psychology, Sports and Exercise Science, and Boxing training to teach clients the skills and strategies to respond to life’s challenges and opportunities.
The CounterPunch name is a Boxing term used to describe a “thoughtful intelligent response” to an attack, just as the CounterPunch strategy is an effective response to life’s challenges enabling clients to choose positive outcomes with positive consequences.
Clients are motivated to allow themselves to contribute to their own learning experience, using a values linked combination of practical boxing skills, physical activities and Reality Therapy based Performance Coaching. The physical activity is a powerful means to regulate emotions and develop an awareness of self. By identifying what’s happening in the body as a result of physical activity clients begin to connect with their physical body, their thoughts and their emotions. This connection is then related to life’s challenges and a toolbox for effective communication and performance is established to optimize potential.
