Celestine (Singapore): "Dina was my national coach from 2012-2013. She balances kindness and gives tough love when needed. Before her joining, I did well locally but had difficulties shooting my regular scores overseas. Thanks to her methods, she managed to switch my mind set and performed my regular score of 370s at the Granada World Cup.
Dina is an experienced coach and teacher!"
Michael (USA): "I'm an air pistol shooter in the USA and I can attest - Dina's coaching is 100% genuine and very, very helpful. I have been studying with her since October and have made a lot of progress already. She is extremely patient, kind, and knowledgeable. It's not a magic trick - it takes a lot of hard work, but she can help you advance faster and I definitely recommend her."
Alam (Australia): "Ms.Dina has been coaching me for some time now (on recommendation from my other olympian coach) and I absolutely feel so blessed to be coached by these two extraordinaire people. Ms.Dina has a great approach to train and her method is so beneficial and boosts so much positivity and correct procedure. My shooting has improved a lot and it portrays in the targets. She is so kind and always available to talk and I cannot thank her enough for taking me under her wings. I trust ms.Dina 100% and her ability as a coach."
Civon (Australia): "Met Dina in 2007 during a shooting competition in Singapore and kept in touch. I'm very lucky to have her as a coach in person since February 2016, as we now live not too far from each other. I can guarantee she's as real as anyone and has spent her life representing the country (past and present) competing in World Cups and Olympics! I've never shot any scores beyond 380 in Air Pistol or 580 in Sport pistol. But with her guidance my current personal best is 383 and 589 in training. Her training style may be different but That says it all"
Paul (Poland): "Just to prove that you are never too old to learn from a professional, I started training with Dina almost 2 years ago as one of her first Skype students. We did weekly sessions for quite a few months and she helped me refine my shooting process, as well as unlearning some bad habits. When I started I would be lucky to shoot 270/400. Today I am regularly shooting 365/400 and with continued progress hope to be shooting 380/400 by my 70th birthday in Jan 2018. I have enjoyed every minute of my coaching experience with Dina and consider it money well spent."
Idris (Kenya): "I can vouch that you can't get anybody as genuine as her, she has a very unique approach unlike other coaches and books as she is really passionate about the sport and a very very talented coach I must say".
Igor (Canada): "Only thing that I can say about Dina is that she does her work professionally and honestly. I'm really grateful for all effort and patience that she put into this journey. Now, a bit over a year later I just can't say thank enough and would recommended Dina to anyone who is willing to improve its own shooting. She helped me a lot and she changed my shooting ethics which helped me to become a better shooter"
David (Hawaii): "I wanted to share my experience with Coach Dina. I contacted her in early April and started with her coaching program shortly after. So far, we have had three of the weekly Skype sessions. Overall, I’m absolutely thrilled to have her help. I’m a lifelong shooting enthusiast but have never had the opportunity to have professional coaching. In the last year, I have been looking for a coach but could not find anyone locally that had the availability to provide regular instruction. Dina’s depth of knowledge is very impressive. She’s not only a world class competitor but also has the experience of coaching Singapore’s National women’s pistol team. Before contacting Dina I did some digging around on Google and found out that her husband, Anatoly Babushkin, has 40 years of coaching experience in the Soviet Union, Kazakhstan, Russia, Australia and Singapore. Just to be clear, Dina does the coaching and I have never spoken with her husband. But, the point is that the approach and methods that Dina teaches have a long and proven history. I’ve learned a tremendous amount in the last few weeks. She covers the physical, mental, imagery, process, and more. If I’m doing something wrong she tells me the proper technique and provides the reasons why the new methods will work better. She’s honest and doesn’t sugar coat things but at the same time doesn’t make me feel like the novice that I am."
