Story – How was this idea created
I am Anton Belak. I have been serving shooting sports for 48 years. I have been working as a professional coach for over 35 years. I was born in a small town and I came far from the shooting on the meadow to the national team. Although I was successful as a Junior except for the title of the Master of Czechoslovakia, I did not really know enough to evolve efficiently.
When I was 19, I got an invitation to an army club where I could become a professional athlete. At the same time, I received an admission commitment at the university where I could learn a lot of knowledge in order to be a successful coach in the future.
I decided to study with the idea of continuing to be an amateur. Unfortunately, my performance has subsided so much that I was fired from the national team and thus lost my equipment and weapons. As a student, I did not have the resources to buy high-quality equipment and weapons, and the return to the level 5 years ago did not make sense to me. I was totally destroyed on the ground and very unhappy in a deep depression because I lost what I really loved.
One year before the study end I got the offer from my coach to work in a top sports center. Although I was still very disappointed with the end of my shooting career, I decided to accept the offer.
How I found the right shooting technique?
As a shooter, I wanted to know precisely how to reach top performances. Throughout my studies in anatomy, biomechanics, psychology, and sports didactics, I thought about where I had made a mistake as an athlete. Later as a trainer, I devoted all my energy to finding the correct training methods and procedures.
I spent all day training either alone or with athletes. I took the opportunity to live in a simple room right on the shooting range to avoid wasting time traveling. I didn’t sleep for many nights and tormented my brain threads by looking for the correct shooting technique. I made progress as a coach, but still, the proper solutions did not come.
I even started doing autohypnosis and meditation because I felt that the veil of everyday thinking obscured the solutions. Through years of this endeavor and many incredible transcendental experiences, I have learned to turn off the brain and perceive something distant and incomprehensible to the ordinary senses. And suddenly, during one meditation, it came—light at the end of the tunnel. Using the information that I received, everything started to make sense.
Although I had to wait patiently for some real success for a few more years, I followed the ideas I captured in the meditations. I develop them, and I still accept new ones. It is simple. Turn off the brain, turn off the ego and perceive. Solution and help will come. You just have to be patient and quiet. The idea of live online training came the same way.
Together with my wife Anna
We are with my wife Anna Belakova, doing maximum for our rife shooters to succeed on the international level. Shooters, in which
we taught our technique won many great competitions.
I’ve been working as a professional coach since 1986, and my wife started as a coach some years later when she definitely finished her shooting career.
We worked together with nationals teams in Slovakia, Switzerland, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, and the last few
years with many shooters belonging to the national squad of India. I was, for example, in the years 2017/2018/2019 Head coach in extraordinarily successful Project Leap created by Gun For Glory Shooting Academy and Olympic Gold Quest in India.
We grounded this website to give a chance to receive deep knowledge about our sport and shooters far away from big shooting centers and the best coaches. As shooters, we started with shooting in tiny clubs, where we fought with deficient information. Still, with our big effort and attitude, we reached shooters national level and as coaches top international level. We know from our own opinion how are correct information is important for our athletes and us.
We are speaking fluent English, Russian, German, and Slovak. These are open doors for communication with many of you, our shooting family members.
Our athletes have achieved fantastic successes and results. They won the title of the ISSF shooting of the year three times and once the ISSF Golden Target. They gained medals at the Olympic Games and gained ten times the world championship title. For example, they set up new world records, many other medals won at World Championships, Europe and Asia Championships, World Cups, WC Finals, etc.
My shooters from Slovakia and Switzerland won 3 times’ Title ISSF Shooter Of The Year. In 2019, Elavenil Valarivan (IND) was practicing under my coaching in Project Leap in 2017–2019 The ISSF Golden Target and jumped within 2 years as a Junior from zero to the leadership of ISSF World Ranking in Air Rifle between Women.
In 3*40, for example, reached 1185 points and often 1180 and more, even in the most important competitions. There are 633.2 points in the AR and some shooters already as juniors have many results over 630. In the prone, Gönci brought the first Olympic medal for Slovakia. So far, at the historic table of the ISSF is in place 2 in 3*40 and in 4th place in the air rifle. There are more of our shooters who have become legends, such as Marcel Burge and others.
Who are our students?
Currently, we have, for example, athletes from Mexico, the USA, India, Germany, and other countries. Our current online athletes achieve very nice results. In 3×40, for example, 1176 points and often 1170 and more. In AR, there are 627.8 points but soon will come result over 630. There are 625 points in prone.
Almost all our athletes we know just over the Internet. Nevertheless, their performance is growing very fast and they will be successful. For example, they set up a new state record, gained several medals at the German championships, etc.
How does live online training work?

- The shooters must meet the following technical conditions:
- Technical specifications:
- Connection software
- One of the next programs: WhatsApp, Telegram, Skype, Signal or Viber
- The Zoom Cloud app is installed on the phone.
- Technical requirements:
- WiFi or 4G (5g) mobile internet connection
- Mobile phone holder with tripod (height adjustable up to 150 cm or more)

Online training – for us it was wonderful because it allowed us to get a lot of the detailed work that we didn’t know about.
