EPISODE 6 - The Coach
Mark Marshal is considered one of the best shooting coaches in the world and he joins us for a long conversations about the art of coaching and techniques for shooting.
Mark is a former Team GB member, World and British Champion and winner of this year’s South African Compak Championships with a score of 198/200. He recently joined E.J. Churchill as a full-time instructor and ground manager, following four years of freelance coaching, much of it in Australia, and prior to that 10 years at West London Shooting School (WLSS).
The son of a gamekeeper – his father worked for Sir Joseph Nickerson – Mark grew up surrounded by shooting and is regarded as one of the best instructors in the world. Friendly and with a love of people, Mark teaches at the clay ground and in the field and bases his teaching around helping clients perfect their technique and on understanding how they learn. He says: “I try to get under the skin of my clients. Some need gentle bullying, some need nurturing and some need to have the mickey taken out of them; being a good coach is all about knowing people.”
