coaches corner

Have a favorite coach you’d like to see featured in the Coaches Corner? Send an email to or

Robert Cutrell Please tell our readers about your area of expertise. I have trained in the martial arts for over 30 years and hold advanced Black Belt ranking in 6 different martial arts. I have taught seminars in Europe, Canada, and across the United States. I have operated martial arts schools in the Evansville and Newburgh area over the last 14 years, and my wife, Nancy, and I own and operate The Evansville ChunJiDo Academy on Evansville’s eastside. What prompted you toward coaching and mentoring? Managing I love to see someone dedicate themselves to a worthy Editor cause, work hard, and succeed. I feel there is no better builder of character and self-esteem than working towards a goal and meeting that challenge. In martial arts we teach that we are not competing against anyone else, we are dedicating ourselves to being the best that we can be. Also the nice thing about martial arts is no one sits on the bench, everyone is a participant. We teach every child not to worry about being as good as the person to your right or left, just focus on giving your best effort and being the best that you can be. The goal is not winning, the goal is teaching them how to develop the confidence and belief that they have what it takes to be a winner in sports and life.   Who are/were some people you look up to in the coaching/mentoring world? One of my all-time favorite coaches was Jimmy Valvano, the coach of the North Carolina State University Basketball team that won the 1983 NCAA Basketball Tournament. He coached with so much passion and love for what he did and truly cared for every player. I feel as a coach you have to be devoted to the improvement and success of every individual, no matter how talented they are. Every participant plays a role and contributes to the success of a team or group. My favorite mentor in the martial arts world is Chuck Norris. He has dedicated his life to promoting martial arts in a very positive way and is a true patriot. He cares about our country and what challenges our children will face. Early in my martial arts career I had the wonderful opportunity to attend his Kick Drugs Out of America seminar in Chicago; he is truly an inspiration! Dylan Gibbs

What - to you - is the most important thing for young competitors to have in mind? Always believe in what you are capable of. We are all created equal, and if you believe in yourself and dedicate yourself to your goals, you will succeed and the old saying, “You only fail when you stop trying” is definitely true.   What are some of the first things you try to instill into young tpeople’s heads?  I try to focus on what they can do, not dwell on what they cannot do. If a child sees success, even small successes, their confidence and self-esteem grows, which helps them to achieve even more. Also, WORK HARD! Success and achievement are accomplished through sweat and effort. Success is so much better when you know you have earned it every step of the way. What’s been your most proud moment? One of the wonderful realizations for me as a coach or mentor is that I am now coaching and mentoring children whose parents went through my system. These parents started in my program and went on to see various successes in their lives. Some became soldiers and law enforcement that protect our country, others went on to college, earned degrees, and all have become contributing members September - October 2010

of society. Now they are bringing their children in and telling us how the martial arts and our program played such a vital role in their success and they want the same thing for their children! It is very gratifying to know you have played a part in someone’s growth and development and they now believe enough in you and what you are doing to bring their children to you. I recently received a wonderful letter from a mother whose sons went through my martial arts program. I had not seen her in a number of years, but she wrote to thank me for being a role model in their lives. One son is in the military protecting our freedom and the other is an electrical engineer. It is an amazing feeling to receive a letter like that. What is the most satisfying thing about helping young people achieve their goals? Seeing the look on their face the first time they accomplish something they did not think they could for the very first time. One of the things we do in our program is breaking boards. The board represents a hurdle, a challenge, just like those we face in life later. It is amazing to see the student light up when they break a board for the first time! From that moment on they know they can accomplish a difficult task if they just apply themselves. It may sting a little, but they walk ten feet off the ground days after. They cannot wait to rush home and tell all of their Family and friends what they did! For advertising information, call (812) 429-3907 • 5
