About this pro

I have many years of coaching and training experience with the players from beginners to pros (5 yrs old to 30+). My coaching/training approach is person first. Beyond the title "athlete" or "basketball player", I see each individual as a person, a human being. To listen to them, to understand them, will better enhance the result that we want to achieve. 

I also like doing video review and analysis with my players. It is a great way to improve their understanding of the game and to visually understand how things actually look like from a different view and perspective. 

My coaching career began in 2005 with Beijing Aoshen Olympians. It was a professional team from China that developed many players to play for the national team. We even developed a player named Sun Yue to make it to the NBA. I worked for them for 6 years as the assistant coach and also being responsible for many administrative works. During the period, I was very fortunate to learn from many great coaches like Phil Jackson (NBA's most championship winning coach), Pete Carril (former Sacramento King's assistant coach, famous for his Princeton Offense), Paul Coughter (FIBA Coach of the Year in 2006, legendary coach in Taiwan and Lebanon), Bill Tosheff (first NBA Rookie of the Year award winner, Indiana University Basketball Hall of Famer), Mike McGee (won 2 NBA championships with the Lakers in 1982 and 1985), etc.    

During the years from 2006 to 2010, I was also the basketball trainer of Sun Yue, and I was the only non-Lakers staff to be able to attend and observe all of their pratice, training, and meeting during the time he was with the Lakers.

From 2011 to 2015, I was running my own basketball agency/academy. Other than representing players and coaches, we also did a lot of player developing and camps for college and pro players, as well as youth athletes. We had done many basketball exposure tours to play in many different international exhibition games and tournaments in the countries like Mexico, Philippines, Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia, and China.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We would talk about their goals, the best part of their game in their own opinion, what areas/parts of the game that they would like to work on, etc., and I would also watch their games in live if available to better understand what type of players they are and figure what their needs are. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I’ve been continually coaching basketball and training players after I settled down in Pleasanton since 2016. I am currently coaching three AAU teams (club teams), a private school's after-school basketball lesson, and I have some private training clients.
