    going to look for instruction from another club. Asked about their private instruction and you need to commit to 5 initially. No frigging way am I committing to 5 sight unseen. I've been with my current coach in golf for over 3 years and the most important thing I found in THAT sport in terms of taking instruction is how you get on with your instructor along with the method they deliver the message. After my initial lesson at another place in Markham (which wasn't the greatest of experience), I found Lee's policy to be quite strange.

    Oh well, back to looking.

    where else did you take lessons in markham and what level are you? :O. in terms of quality i hear lee's one of the best in markham like other than su's i suppose. i signed up last night for private lessons and they said they would find a random coach that suits me the best? although they don't know what level i am at currently because ive never taken lessons before. after the 5 lessons im going to quit private and join group lessons because i get to play with others and gain more experience.

    Inconsequential to this topic; but the lesson took place at Everyday badminton. I'm not sure if the guy was affiliated officially with their club tho.

    in terms of quality i hear lee's one of the best in markham like other than su's i suppose.
    Which is exactly why I sent them an inquiry in the first place.

    i signed up last night for private lessons and they said they would find a random coach that suits me the best?
    Without an assessment, don't you find that a wee bit ridiculous and impossible? I don't know bout you, but the only way to find out is if you get ONE lesson with the guy to see if he fits you, or if you can observe how they teach. Remember the assessment is a two way street. They're assessing my skill level as much as us assessing their teaching methods.

    after the 5 lessons im going to quit private and join group lessons because i get to play with others and gain more experience.
    The random coach was put off #1. Certification is different from experience. If everyone who's certified is a good instructor, then in a parallel analogy, everyone in GTA should know how to drive *rolleyes. The 5 lesson commitment was put off #2.

    But good luck on your lessons. Please update us on how your experience is

    World Champion, Lee Jae Bok is apparently teaching there now.

    yup, and right away you can see he's bringing his stuff to the table for the elite juniors. Quite a different contrast between their practice sessions before he arrived (and the few months that I saw) vs the last two sessions.

    btw, he is national champ; not world champ

    This is the nice thing about different coaches. They can offer different insights. What works for one student may not work so well for another. Also coaches have different teaching styles. I think it's difficult to really assess an instructor totally in one lesson. Sometimes it does click but other occasions it does take a few lessons to build up.

    The other thing is a world champion may not necessarily be a good instructor. The two do not always go hand in hand.
