“Kicking has always been an area of the game that I’ve wanted to study, master and perfect. I’m a massive believer in the belief that ‘in order to be the best you need to be coached by the best’ and I’m fortunate enough to have had that here at the School of Kicking. It’s no secret that kicking is very much dominant in the men’s game but this is also something that I’d like to see evolve in both the women’s and girls game. It’s a great skill to have and provides a good opportunity for young ambitious girls to get stuck in”!
Lagi Tuima, Bristol Ladies & England Ladies
“Dave didn’t tell me what to do he told me how to do it and then showed me, the sound, the flight, the power, it was as though he was kicking a different ball. It was already clear this is a truly special guy, and if I am serious about wanting to succeed I need to learn from him everything I possibly can.”
Jonny Wilkinson, Newcastle Falcons, Toulon, England & British Lions.
“Having worked with Stu and Yappy for the last two years, I have seen dramatic improvements in both my kicking performance and my overall appreciation for the advantages that a strong kicking game can have on a team’s performance. Their knowledge, communication and emphasis on preparation, has allowed me to develop a secure process that I have been able to rely on, and repeat, when standing over high pressure kicks.”
Ted Landray, Bucs Winner, England Students
“Their mix of calm explanations with interactive practical sessions kept everybody enthralled for three hours.”
“As a rugby coach, I found the workshop fascinating. The detail the coaches go into and their understanding of kicking is second to none.”
“I couldn’t recommend Stu highly enough, I found he had excellent technical knowledge and I improved my kicking immensely under his guidance. His sessions are fun, challenging and engaging. My only regret is that I didn’t get to work with Stu from a younger age!”
Will Chudley, Bath Rugby
“Straight away Tony picked up what my problems were and showed me exactly what I needed to do to eradicate them.”
Dan Mugford, Plymouth Albion
