Alex was born in Shenzhen, China and was ranked top 10 nationally in junior orders of merit before he moved to Canada at age of 15.

With a focus on junior players, Alex's students have won multiple junior events in B.C and had competed at major junior events around the world.

Alex will identify these factors and work with you to create the optimal swing for your body, while exploring ways to push you pass your limits.
