Training Philosophy
  • I see myself as a gardener – planting seeds and watering the plants as they keep growing and flourishing
  • I want to create players, not robots
  • High value on the mental part of growth/development – My goal is that my players enjoy the process, enjoy adversity and bring out their inner diamond, shaped through pressure. I want them to understand, that nothing in this life will be given to them. They have to bring the willingness to learn and the motor to push themselves to exhaustion, without anybody telling them.
  • Favote quote: I can’t relate to lazy people. We don’t speak the same language. I don’t understand you. I don’t want to understand you.
