The most coach qualifications (multiple sports) is 24, achieved by Anthony Kelly (Australia), in Armidale, New South Wales, Australia, on 16 November 2021.
Anthony had always been into sports growing up. He started with rugby union, cricket and basketball, then got into martial arts at the age of 15. He began training hard already with the aim of becoming a blackbelt. After achieving it in Taekwondo, he had a passion for more and started to train in more and more styles.
This is what eventually got him into the world of record-breaking as Anthony made his first record attempt on television on El Show de los Récords in 2001 for an arrow catching title. Becoming a Guinness World Records title holder marked a real turning point in Anthony's career as now, renowned martial arts trainers from around the world were asking him just how he trained his reflexes to be able to catch flying arrows.
This lead Anthony to develop his training program based on his specific training exercises which he called "Reaction Training". He trained many athletes of different sports.
As he progressed as a trainer, Anthony became more curious about how these athletes were mastering their sports and had a desire to learn more from them, so he decided to study and subsequently master more martial arts and some different sports and earned more coaching qualifications.
The most important piece of advice Anthony had to share was “learning and practice is the key to being the best you can be”.
