It is from these relationships, he has been able to work within the NSO framework, and continue to extend, share, and grow his own knowledge, skills, and abilities.

Master Lim uses an in-depth reporting process with each of the athletes he coaches, trains, and mentors. This process incorporates the perspective of both the athlete and the coach. Using this unique reporting process has allowed Master Lim to work more efficiency and effectivity with his students while working within the framework of the NCCP Program.

Master Lim actively provides guidance and leadership in mentorship and future coach development programs. More recently, he has had the pleasure of mentoring two up-and-comping female Martial Arts coaches.
