Mozza Yamaguchi is a certified lifeguard and swimming teacher with over 20 years of experience. Mozza is a former swimming coach at the Tokyo American Club and British School of Tokyo. He developed a unique and highly effective teaching method by educating students with the properties of water. He is an instructor with a cheerful disposition, patient and always happy to teach. To Mozza, swimming, if not taught to children correctly, can result in phobia. Each student has different fears and needs. During the lesson he focuses on each individual and closely monitors progress. This is the reason why he chooses to take in a very small number of students at a time. He urges parents to encourage their children to learn the sport early and hone their swimming skills by joining a bigger group at the swimming club.
