On Monday 20th of November the Amsterdam Combat Lab hosts an invited seminar by Alexandra Roberts, PhD candidate with the Australian Institute of Sports and Edith Cowen University. Alex’s PhD research is aiming to better understand how coaches use their experiential knowledge to identify talent within combat sports.

Over the last months, Alex has interviewed 24 international level Olympic Combat Sport coaches from 11 countries about the ways in which they identify talent. In this invited seminar she will present and discuss the results of these interviews, and their implications for future research in combat sports and talent identification.
