Do you have a passion for the sport of Shooting? Do you want to achieve your goals in this sport? Have you been in the sport for a while but feel that you are stuck at your current level of results? Do you want to improve your technical, tactical, psychological and specific physical skills? Do you want to learn new practices and get rid of bad shooting habits? If you want to learn how to use your imagination and to find how it might help you, then I’m at your service.
We all know about distant or correspondence kind of education, various online courses and webinars. In the modern world, it proves to be a convenient, fast and productive method of learning things. So, I thought why not try the same approach in shooting sport.
Over the years of training by myself and with the others, I realised that as much as shooters need to be observed during live training, it is just as important (or even more) that they were told how to think; what not to think; how to plan their training and what to do to ensure that each training made sense. They need someone who would not only explained to them how to do things correctly but also convinced them, encouraged them or pushed them, supported them, made things look easier than they are. And to be able to do all of this, I don’t need to be present at the live training. I also know that many people don’t have an access to quality coaching or simply don’t have anybody to ask whether they do things correctly or not.
Do you agree? So for such people, who speak English or Russian, training with me via SKYPE might be a good option.
It is not only my own 30+ years of experience in shooting (and winning medals) at all types of international tournaments... It is my husband Anatoly Babushkin's 40 years of coaching experience in 7 countries starting from the Soviet Union. He is a Merited Coach of the Soviet Union and Kazakhstan. His shooters won medals at Olympic, Commonwealth, Asian Games, World Championships and Cups, etc. Vladimir Vokhmyanin, Vladimir Guscha, Alexey Klimov, Lalita Yauhleuskaya, Daniel Repacholi, and myself, to name a few... So whatever has been tried and tested back in the 70-80s (because most of shooting traditions and classical textbooks appeared then) - he knows; whatever methods of training have been developed - he knows; whatever exercises work - he knows. And so do I...
I also worked with some other coaches and psychologists, and basically what you get is a summary of the methods, techniques and practices which over time proved to be right. For example, some of you know how much I like the so-called "written recall" exercise. I've got it from Efim Khaidurov - the constructor of FWB AW93; "Control the Controllables" and "What you think is what you get" theories I've got from psychologist Peter Terry with whom I worked here in Australia; got familiar with "Categories of brainwave frequencies" at the seminar of Dr. Michel Gagne in Singapore; learned relaxation and visualisation techniques in the early 90s from professor Vladimir Sopov.
Another unique aspect of me, I suppose, is that I've been working in both full-time and part-time shooting environments. Therefore, I know how professionals work but try to adopt such methods to the amateurs. It seems to me that it's kind of easy to work with full-time shooters as they will eventually progress, but those who cannot afford to dedicate that much time to the sport and have to juggle dozens of other commitments, require a little bit different approach.
So, feel free to inquire.
I can come to your club and conduct a 3-day boot camp where your shooters will get comprehensive information about shooting in form of structured lectures combined with live supervised sessions on the range. Contact me for the details. Online group classes are also available.
