MEET OUR COACHES

KSI Coaches undergo one of the longest and most practical based professional development training programs available in the world. There are a number of features that set our coach education apart from the rest.
Firstly, whilst our initial goal is to provide accessible education opportunities, acceptance into the higher levels of the program is subject to successful application.
Secondly progression through the upper levels of the program is based on competence rather than knowledge.
Thirdly, the teachings that form the basis of the education are tried and proven over decades with elite athletes.
