What is the message that the father of Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) player Son Woong-jeong (61, soccer academy coach) gives to his son ahead of the match?
In an invitational lecture held on the 23rd at ‘Music Station 1939 Music Hall’ in Gapyeong-gun, Gyeonggi-do, Sohn said, “On the day of my son’s game, ‘Do not be greedy and play the game. The scariest person in the world is the one who empties his mind and relaxes his body .The most important thing is a happy game. Regardless of winning or losing, I tell you to keep your original intention in any situation as if you were playing soccer for the first time.” He added, “Having a happy game is what I want most as a parent.”
Regarding the recent concern about Son Heung-min’s goallessness, he said, “I haven’t scored in a few games, but I multiply by 2. For example, if I say 8 games without a goal, what if I don’t score in 16 games and 32 games? Heung-min is healthy and happy Doing is the most important thing to me. Kicking a ball on the playground itself is Heung-min’s life.”
The lecture (topic: Everything starts with the basics) was hosted by Cheongpyeong Library in Gapyeong-gun, and was held with about 150 young sports players, parents, and teachers in attendance. Director Son also presented various know-how related to sports based on his experience of coaching his son.
Director Sohn especially emphasized habit formation and basic skills through repetition over a long period of time. “There’s no teacher like repetition,” he said. “A habit is like a spider’s web when you first create it, but when it gets to the point where it becomes an automated system, it’s stronger than steel.” 메이저사이트
He continued, “Excellent knowledge is also polished by learning for a long time, and the same is true of skills that cannot be imitated by others. The key here is repetition over a long period of time.” I have to do it. The only way to make my opponent weak is to become stronger. To do that, I have to be patient for a long time.”
Coach Sohn reiterated the importance of repetition on the premise of Sohn’s experience of investing nine years in the basics.
“It is the power of repetition that the spoon goes to the mouth even in a space where the lights are off. It is a natural period to do the basics for 9 years. You kick the ball with the foot farthest from the brain. They say that if you train it once, you can imitate it, if you train it 3,000 times, you can use it in competitions, if you practice 30,000 times, you will get used to it. You have to repeat everything. It takes a long time to give you an answer.”
