Josh Koscheck Blasts Coaches At American Kickboxing Academy

Josh Koscheck has never been known for keeping his opinions to himself. He recently parted ways with American Kickboxing Academy, the prestigious fighting camp from San Jose. Knowing Koscheck, it was likely the split wasn't amicable.

Brent Brookhouse of Bloody Elbow shares a recent video of Koscheck running down the coaching staff at AKA. If you click through, you can see the video where Ariel Helwani interviews Kos. Here is the money quote from the interview regarding AKA:

"I think the reason why everybody is so successful at the gym, over there in San Jose, is because of the training partners. I really truly believe that the training partners is why guys have fought for world titles and guys have been UFC champions like Cain, was because of the training partners. I think that is the number one reason. I think if you had real coaching, you would have seen a lot more champions out of that gym and I think that now, in my career, were going to see big improvements really quick."

Koscheck will face Johny Hendricks in the co-main event of UFC on Fox 3.
