It is with great pleasure that I am writing this in my new capacity as Head of Gymnastics at Bangkok Patana. Some of you will have already seen me in and around the gym before the half term break but this is my opportunity to formally introduce myself. I intend to update this blog with news and updates not only for the parents but the gymnasts and the coaches as well, so be sure to check back regularly!
My coaching philosophy
I like to think of myself as a firm coach but also a fair one. As a young gymnast my coaches taught me the importance of hard work and mutual respect in the gym, they inspired me to fulfil my potential and they instilled in me a passion for gymnastics that stays with me today. It is my belief that happy, dedicated coaches make for a happy and productive gym where gymnasts can work to their full potential but can also enjoy the sport at the same time. It is with this in mind that I look forward to working with the Tumbling Tigers, and my experienced coaching team, in what promises to be an exciting time for the programme.
