Great Coaches Bring Great Results

by Michael Tadich


My son Matt Tadich is a freshman at Blair Academy. In mid December 2007 Matt got ill and by the end of December Matt was diagnosed with mono and an extremely enlarged spleen. Being put on medical restrictions from any and all activities, Matt's freshman wrestling year was over before it even really started.


In March of 2008, Matt came home for his 3 week Spring break. When he got his medical release on March 7th, Matt asked me if he could compete at the Freshman Nationals since that was all he had left of his Freshman year. My reply was "no way. How could you ever be trained or strength conditioned enough to compete?" Matt's answer was "Coach Miron." He showed me a training schedule he had made and asked me to call Coach Miron. I made the phone call and Coach agreed to train Matt.


The schedule called for 3 trips to Coach Miron's over the next 18 days with 5 hours of one-on-one training with Coach each day for 9 days. Coach Miron revised the schedule to include strength conditioning, running, nutrition and proper rest.


We followed the schedule to the letter, including training on Easter Sunday, with Easter dinner at Coach Miron's home with his family. We left Coach Miron's after our last 3 hour training session on Monday, March 24, 2008. By Friday, March 28th, Matt was the Freshman National Champion.


Only one man would have put their heart and soul into one wrestler like this, and that man is Coach Miron. His training techniques, along with his style of wrestling are very different and very difficult. In fact, many parents think they are too difficult. However, when you choose the tough road in life, you'll always be glad you did. Coach Miron is that tough road, but results are the measuring stick in this sport, and Coach Miron gets results.


According to Matt, 45 hours of one-on-one training with Coach Miron is like going into the desert for 30 days without food or water and with a 100 pound brick strapped on your back. It's intense. It's tough...but it's worth it.


As important as training is, peaking to perform at your highest level is just as essential. I wish more coaches would pay more attention to peak performance, and I wish more parents and wrestlers could experience the compassion, dedication and pursuit of excellence that Coach Miron holds for each and every wrestler he trains. He gives from the heart.


                                           IT'S ALL YOU, COACH


Please feel free to post this letter on your web site. I would truly want anyone and everyone considering your camp to know what a great experience both my sons had at the 8-day program this summer. They learned more about wrestling than we ever dream imaginable and they also matured enormously as people. It is hard to believe two guys guys could grow up SO MUCH in a short period of time, but you gave them the "complete package" -- profound lessons about wrestling technique, conditioning, hard work, discipline and LIFE. They worked incredibly hard but had a great time with you and the rest of the team. Thank you, thank you, and thank you for all that you have done and will do for young wrestlers.
Most sincerely,

Dear Miron,

I wanted to express my heartfelt gratitude to you for all you have done and continue to do for Nick.
He has grown in so many ways because of your guidance and knowledge. I was so proud of him at
states! He was awesome!! I don't know how we can ever thank you! I know Nick will continue to
learn and mature with your help.
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

My best,

Diana Capaci
My son (Matt)  has been going to Coach Miron�s wrestling club and wrestling camps for two years. 
We also attend club practices on Sunday and Monday twice a month, when there are no camps
scheduled. That puts us in Ohio with Coach Miron almost every weekend for the past two years. 
Over that time, I have had the opportunity to study him as a man and as a coach. 


The effort that Coach Miron puts forth for each child that comes to camp or club practice is,
indeed, unequalled. I have attended camps from California to New Jersey , and at not one other
camp did I ever see the camp director, clinician, or head coach personally supervise every single
session for every single minute. This hands on approach of Coach Miron�s directly reflects his
passion to teach each child his system, knowing at all times their progress and what they need to
do to further their success.


Coach Miron advertises let me take you to the next level. He lives the advertisement. He takes others
 to the next level and beyond. Lastly, we can evaluate people by the results they produce. Results are
the bottom line and they tell all. My son Matt never before placed at the Pennsylvania States.  In March
of 2006, at the age of fourteen, he placed in the Pennsylvania States for the first time ever. Matt had
never won in the Reno , Tulsa , or the Rocky Mountain Nationals. On November 18, 2006 Matt won the
 Tulsa Kickoff Classic. That is a result. Team Miron took approximately ten kids to Tulsa in
November, 2006, and garnered three National Championships. 


Thank you, Coach Miron, my friend, for driving my son to a level of success I never dreamed he
could achieve. We still have a lot of work to do, and with your effort and expertise, we can s
urmount any obstacles and attain our goals.

" Miron and Vladimir's vast knowledge of Wrestling
is very evident in this tape. Their Russian technical
background will give all Wrestlers from the youngest
to the elite, as well as coaches, the edge to achieve their goals."

"These Russian Wrestling Technique Tapes are a "Must See" for any coach or
wrestler at any level with a desire to improve. I was fortunate enough to have met and trained with coach Kharchilava before the end of my athletic career. I can safely say that the Russian Wrestling Techniques undoubtedly contributed to my success"

Hi Miron,


This is Dave Koppenhaver from PA, (Dan's dad). I want to thank you for helping Dan reach the next level. Today
at Fall States Dan beat a kid 5-4; last February Dan lost to Bison 13-3. Dan wasn't great, but when he uses the 2
on 1 he is very tough.   Dan will wrestle 135-140 for the upcoming season. He weighed 140, but wrestled
  145 because the competition was better in that bracket. He is no Dustin Schlater, but Dan is a very tough
and physical kid. He has a very good front headlock; thanks for your help!   Dan is a sophomore this year, but
I believe he should qualify for states and that he has good chance to place if he can master the 2 on 1.
Pennsylvania is a very tough state, but he has the Team Miron advantage.


People are starting to notice Dan. If you go to under AA at 125 Dan Koppenhaver is listed
at 19. He has beaten some of the kids listed above him. I believe in my heart that Dan is going to place at
Hershey. He has all the tools to succeed.    Miron, you said you would bring Dan to the next level. I believe
that after the 11 day camp my son has reached the next level. He still has a lot of work to do, but you kept
your promise and helped Dan reach the next level. Thanks for caring about Dan.

Dear Miron,
I just wanted to thank you for everything you have done for me Miron. Your technique, philosophy, passion is one of a kind, people do not realize how lucky there are to be coached by you. I know that I could not have won state without being coached by you. I truly believe in the Russian style that you coach, and it showed ever since my first camp with you. In the wrestling room you are my coach but outside your like a father and always have been. You are a part of my family. I promise to give you everything that I have to offer and you have done the same for me. Thank you for everything from the bottom of my heart, I couldn�t have done it without you. Now lets go get a National Championship! Johney Hooper, Colorado State Champion Thank you Miron !
