Shayde, what level player are you? Some of these coaches are quite booked up and have limited times. Best determine when you are available and fit to your schedule accordingly. Most of the coaches are pretty good. Try to talk to them ahead of your decision. Best of luck

Um im begginer, but i know most of the basics, coz i played 2 years ago on school team and when i went to china i had a coach for a week. I tried calling Kiran and he didnt answer.. like 4 times alrdy -.- .. i tried Alvin and he said hes fully booked. Now im not quite sure who else to try. Btw im 14, so i need someone that can work well with me. Im looking for practices 1 hour a week most likely friday evening.
Mind if you can give me an opinion on who to try according to my standards. Thx.

i dun mean to offend anyone here...but noah wang is a joke...played him once...kept screwing up his shots...and his only excuse was that he's cold and not warmed up yet despite the fact that we rallied for 15min straight...to put in perspective...noah wang is the asian version of calvin holoboff...makes up stupid excuses for poor shots...If you look at noah wang's creditentials you'd see he's nothing compared to someone who has actually won credible tournaments. Ming, on the otherhand, if he still teaches at RichmondPro...is an awesome trainer.

Is Noah Wang a certified coach? If so, what level is he? I recall seeing him play at the Washington tournament in 2007 and he was wearing dress pants when he was competing.

Qualifications, credentials and either if this is a good player (not just for badminton, anything) alone is not enough to determine whether which coach to recommend in general. The key here is if the coach can teach/train well and the ability to deliver instructions to the student that he or she can understand and can learn.
Just an example here (a bit extreme but I’m trying to make a point): One can have good qualifications and is a good player, however their teaching is no good.
