Mandarin (Yung Yu) Vs. Lee's (Jennifer Lee)
I've heard that both of them were once friends and partners. However, becuz of some reasons, they broke up and both of their attitudes changed. I don't play at lee's nor mandarin, but i am planning to join either one. Can anyone give me some backgrounds about both head coachs? I want to get the most training and least issues to deal with. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

This should be in the Canada East fourm AND I believe the title name is slightly Provocative.

It won't be an issue. As I understand, they are seperately run so why on earth should any personality differences affect the amount of training one gets or affect anything else within that particular club.
Fishing for such issues is not recomended in this forum.

um...yung Yu use to coachme a while ago... I am not sure if anything happened but i use to be on the Mandarin team 2 but i quit cus of school. If u were gonna join i think it all depends. If you want to go super pro then go Lee's if u want to go pro then go to Mandarin. Lee's training seem to be a lot stricter than Mandarin's

coaching...Hmm they are both pretty good at coaching but i am not sure now since Troy isn't at lee's anymroe. If u could i would try to get Hari but he's probably fully booked. At Mandarin u could try getting brian Tjoa or Huang. I would first try to get the prices first cus private trianing could get pretty nifty.

jennifer's english is decent enough, although her native tongue is cantonese...

i meant like how she runs the club... (eg. late for her own private lessons/group lessons, writes down that she is the head coach for that particular group, but turns out another thing..) have you had those experiences before?

I'm sure both places are professional or they wouldn't be in business so long.
Business partnerships are like marriages, not everyone wants to stay together forever- I wouldn't make too much of it.

CHEUNG is right, it appears that ASDFG is fishing for contentious issues in order to state a point. One wonders if ASDFG is really looking for a coach.
By the way, they have never been business partners. One worked for the other for a short period many years ago.
Lee's, run by its owner, has been in business for 9/10 years now. Mandarin is in its third year of operations.

Jennifer's never late for my group lessons...I know that first hand after taking 2 years of group lessons
being late sometimes is reasonable...besides its not like you get less time with the coach when she's late, so you're still getting the bang for your buck.

Out of curiosity, how would you join one of these clubs if you are in India (as your location says). Are you relocating to Toronto just for badminton?
