Coach Takashi has been a tremendous help to my family and I during high school and my journey into college. Coach Takashi has taught me the valuable skills I will need to perform as an outside linebacker, sprinter, and an elite combine performer. While playing for East Ridge high school I earned the "Top Linebacker " award, making 105 tackles and 10 sacks. Working with Coach Takashi I've seen both my 40 time and 100 time improve. My 40 time was 4.8 with Coach Takashi 4.58 and my 100 time went from 12.4 to 11.3 after training with him. I was able to compete and hold the highest Nike SPARQ rating for Miami and Alabama. Also I competed in the Nike SPARQ National Championship in Oregon. My footwork, hand placement and coverage recognition have improved exceptionally. Coach Takashi has also taken the time to talk with me about the academic and social aspects of college, I may come across. Coach Takashi is a fantastic mentor and coach. I recommend any person who wants to be an elite athlete to come and train with him. I thank GOD for allowing our paths to meet.
Takashi Walker to me has been more than a coach or even a friend, he has been another big brother to me( I have 2 older brothers as well). In his very short time in Oshkosh ,Takashi taught me what it means to be not only a Corner but a difference maker on the field. He pushed me to better not just at my technique, but in every other aspect of the game from film study to route recognition, breaks, jamming and even catching (commonly overlooked skill among DB's). While He was in Oshkosh Takashi constantly challenged me to be better than even I thought I could be, and never letting my head get to big keeping me humble even when success came my way. I vividly remember constant DB drills and one on one's ( me trying to cover him), showed me a young sophomore at the time just how far I had to go and how hard I had to work every single play to be a play maker. The entire time Takashi Walker believed that I could become the Shut down corner I am today even then. Things I learned from Takashi definitely helped separate me from all other corners in my conference and even the Midwest. Takashi Walker has played and continues to play a vital role in my football progression and life. To me he is more than a Coach (although now from afar) ,he is still a dear friend and in more ways than I have described here my big brother for whom I thank GOD for bringing him into to my Life.

Takashi Walker has been my personal trainer for a little over a year now. His dedication and concern for his clients is the highest example of professionalism. The workouts are a combination of challenging exercises and fun. Since my goal was to achieve the highest level of talent I could achieve as a Defensive back, which I am continuing to do, Takashi is quick to remind me that being consistent with my workouts is one part of the formula. The other part is a great attitude and with him, that part is easy. I would recommend a workout with Takashi for everyone who is trying to pursue the next level.

I met Takashi Walker back in 2010 and his knowledge of the game and training help propel my game from being average to a superior level. His knowledge of the game and what’s needed to be great in the game of football that he has obtained over the years is second to none. I would say throughout my 12 years of play football the last two years training with Takashi was when I say I learned the most I learned what it takes to be a professional from a professional. His hands on training along with his attention to detail will get the best out of you and you will know upfront that this is the training that you need.

I strongly recommend Coach Walker for anyone thinking about playing football, just starting to play football or those serious about playing football the right way. Coach Walker has the perfect combination of experience, ability, patience and relatability for a young athlete. Coach Walker also communicates very clearly with both his players and their parents, which is a huge part of being a great coach of the game. Our son is on the freshman high school football team only having played years of soccer. Worried that he was not getting taught the proper technique and mechanics and would therefore suffer an injury, we sought out private training for our son. Before even having a training session, Coach Walker was so patient with our questions and attempt at making the right decision. In fact, Coach Walker spoke at length with us on 3 separate occasions and gave us the confidence that he knew how to teach football “the right way” to our son. Our son learned more in his first session with Coach Walker than months of 3 hour football practices at school. Our son is now on a regular training schedule with Coach Walker. We travel all the way from Oviedo to Coach Walker’s Training facilities for these trainings - a 45 minute ride each way. This is a testament to how much we believe in the quality of the training that Coach Walker provides.
