Stephen Beattie - Head Coach

My name is Stephen and I am the owner and Head Coach at TeamTetsu. I started Judo when I attended Ulidia Integrated College at first year, my form teacher Chris Donnelly was also my Judo Coach and he inspired me to take up the sport. I done Judo for 7 years before completing my Level 1 Coaching Course and going on to complete my Level 2 Coaching Course which ultimately lead to me opening my own club in 2015 - TEAMTETSU! I have experience and a vast range of knowledge when working with children and young adults, I have gained hand on experience when working with children with Special Educational Needs. I rapidly grew TeamTetsu from a handful of members to close to 100 within a few years, coaching in over 20 schools in Mid and East Antrim and Newtownabbey and Antrim, I have had thousands of children and Teenagers come onto my mat and experience my outgoing and enthusiastic and fun coaching style. My coaching style seems to be a winner with all our members, and our numbers show that. I am constantly working on my own personal develop inside the Dojo and outside and I work with our young adults in developing enthusiastic and brilliant coaches.
