Hello Pingskills Team,
I am sure someone asked this question before me,but I was not able to find any such,so sorry for repeating :)
I have talked with my new head coach,who has been in China recently with his main apprentice (U15 No. 4 of Europe).
He has asked me how much I would like to train and how much I would like to participate in team's matches (in the First District,which is 3 leagues above my true level,and he denies it and says I am fully competitive in the First).
I was a bit shy but I told him I decided for his club majorly to increase the quality and quantity of my training drills,while having only a little interest to play many matches.
The reason is that I have absolutely dominated Fourth DIstrict League without having any serious superior there. I have lost only 4 times,from which I lost all four in their halls,but I was able to defeat them in my homeclub hall,earning total of 84 victories,and I felt overconfident afterwards.
He told me that Chinese train similarly to what I want: they play a lot of drills while having matches only occassionally.
I would like to ask you on your opinion on my decision too.
I think there always has to be both training and matches but you can make your training more match like so that you are getting the benefits of both. Challenge yourself in your drills with more open play.
