Anyone can give themselves the title of Coach and/or a Trainer. But not many are actual coaches or trainers even with the Credentials to try to prove it.
A question you should be asking any prospective Coach is: How many official and ranked medalists have you yourself produced? Not your current or previous Master or Instructor who taught you how to compete and took the credit for them when you sat on the coaching chair. Many Coaches and Trainers these days mimic what they have watched or seen thinking it is the same as to actually working and understanding what it is that you are teaching, knowing the purpose of each exercise. Beware of the "PROTOTYPE COACH"
Getting advanced Olympic training from an experienced coach is essential if you or your child want to be successful in Olympic sparring. When searching for a coach you want to find a coach who has competed himself or herself and WON at the national level and international level, not just the typical local tournaments. The competition experience exposes them to the true understanding of what is required to compete successfully in the competitive world of Olympic sparring. Knowing what the stress and/or feeling they have in various situations during the competition.
It is important to find a coach who has trained athletes who WIN at the National and International level because a former good athlete who now calls himself or herself Coach does not always make a successful coach.
RESULTS are what a coach is judged by and a coach with only local/regional tournament experience does not equal or replace National and International competition results or experience!!!!!
