    Default Park Joo Bong

    Does anyone know where is he now or what he is doing? I know he used to coach in Malaysia's national team program, but not anymore.

    Last news that I have heard is that Park and his sponsor have a plan to 'create' a Badminton Academy somewhere in Malaysia.

    Post Joo-bong to coach Koreans for the Thomas Cup and Olympics

    By RAJES PAUL from thestar.com.my

    PETALING JAYA: Doubles legend Park Joo-bong is going back to his roots – as the South Korean doubles chief coach, albeit on a short stint.

    He will guide the team to the Thomas Cup Finals and the Athens Olympic Games. And that is bad news for Malaysia.

    Joo-bong, who was Malaysian doubles chief coach, knows all about the Malaysian shuttlers. He had, in fact, wanted to set up an international badminton academy in Kuala Lumpur. But his failure to get the project going prompted to go back to South Korea.

    “I stayed on here even after I quit as the national doubles chief coach because I was keen to set up an academy. But there was no reply from the government on my application for a piece of land. I knew it would be difficult,” said Joo-bong, who joined the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) in 1999 and quit after the Busan Asian Games in October, 2002.

    Joo-bong said he had been engaged by the Korean BA for a short term.

    “I will start coaching the players right before the Korean Open (March 30-April 4) and will be with them until the Olympic Games (Aug 13-29). Then, I may look at coaching in another country,” said Joo-bong.

    “The main aim is to get the Korean players ready for the Thomas Cup Finals and the Olympics. The Korean BA know I cannot do much for the players in the short while. But with my experience, I am expected to build the players' confidence and help them withstand the pressure. I will help them to be mentally prepared for big events.”

    At the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, Kim Dong-moon-Ha Tae-kwon and Lee Dong-soo-Yoo Yong-sung had been favourites to win the mens' doubles and Dong-moon-Ra Kyung-min were the favourites in the mixed doubles.

    They could not perform when the expectations were high.

    Joo-bong said that the South Korean team would be on a 10-day training stint in Malaysia prior to the Thomas Cup Finals from May 7-16 in Jakarta.

    “The team will send their best players for the ABC (Asian Badminton Championship) here in Malaysia (April 20-24). It will be too taxing on them to go back to South Korea after that,” said Joo-bong.

    “We will stay here for 10 days and get ready for the Finals. It will be a good acclimatisation before Jakarta.”

    Tae-kwon's former partner Kang Kyung-jin is handling the Korean's doubles players now. He replaced Kim Moon-soo a year ago. Moon-soo, who was Joo-bong's former partner, had to go for knee surgery after a freak accident.

    Of course there are badminton academies, big and small, all over Malaysia. I believe most of the publicity is given to the big ones like Nusa Mahsuri, run by the Sidek brothers and BAM's own famous Bukit Jalil Sports Academy, which contributed a few women national players to the current Uber Cup squad who have helped M'sia to qualify for the UC Finals on its own merit for the first time after a long while.

    Individual state badminton associations also run their own training programmes and not a few have engaged the services of former Chinese star and Malaysia's Thomas Cup winning coach, Han Jian, with whom I recently took a pic when I coincidentally met him at the KLBA during the recent TC qualifiers. Such training arrangements are normally sponsored by sports loving corporations.

    One reason why Malaysia has consistently produced top class badminton players is their programme of nurturing the young talents with proper guidance and training in these badminton academies and training centers.

    that news!

    i say with PJB back to Korea, Korea does have a much better chance in both the TC and the Olympics. which is bad news for other countries.

    i remember seeing Ha/Kang play in Thai Open 1996. Kang isn't the most talented player, and he seems rathered short tempered with Ha. so think PJB is a much better candidate.

    Kim Moon Soo is having a surgery. hm...

    and i think this is good for Park. he can spend time with his family, and it was really painful seeing him coach the Malaysian with sign language.

    I know that some french players have been to Nusa Mahsuri for summer training so it must be possible.
    I don't have any contact info though...

    Too bad Joo Bong won't be able to Set-Up a Badminton academy in Msia. It will be a great contribution to the country and as well as a place to groom up future champions.

    there's one academy here in malaysia called the Setia Badminton Academy, runned by Han Jian....

    Reaper,

    i doubt u have any chance to enter the academies, even us Malaysian don't have the privillages.... only the very good ones, who ARE SELECTED can enter the academies...

    Bukit Jalil Sports School Only REcruit Players By Selection....

    most of the players in Bukit Jalil Sports School Are Selected During State-Level Competion..... and all the players are State players..... when they get selected to enter Bukit Jalil Sports School, they'll most probably represent malaysian in future.....

    and to get into state level in Malaysia is already A Very Difficult Task Unless You're Very Good.......

    for malaysian to enter state team, they have to represent school and play in competions, when they manage to enter few semi-final or finals, they might get selected to enter State Team, and from State Team, if they win in State-Level competition, they'll get selected to enter Bukit Jalil Sports School , where all the Malaysian junior train and most probably represent Malaysia..........

    even if u enter the sports school, u might not make it into national team if you're not good enough......


    i'm not so sure about Nusa Mahsuri nor have i any idea how to enter the club........

    but the current Hashim Brothers Roslin and Hafiz are from Nusa Mahsuri.

    Reaper is not M'sian And if he is willing to pay, I am almost sure he'll be able to get in. I have heard of camps like these in Indonesia and China. You pay to get the training. It would be only worth the trouble if you were pretty good already - Reaper should not have a problem in this respect

    The only trouble is getting the contact details for a Malaysian training centre....

    whoa, I just asked about academies in Malaysia, didn't mean for it to be "blown up" like this, LOL

    anyway, my club is sending a team to Xiamen, China this year (in the summer) to train with a coach who was Ji Xinpeng's first coach who is now provincial head coach, I forget his name, the team is training at Xiamen's Sports Academy ... but it is costly though .....
