Welcome to the "Coaches Corner ".
My name is Joe Fisher. I am a 27 year old New Zealander. I have been playing rugby since I was 5 years old. I first joined the Tokyo Gaijin RFC in 2003 when I was working as an English teacher in Japan. I captained the side in 2004 and, as captain, had responsibility for running training sessions. During this year I discovered that I really enjoyed coaching and decided that I wanted to develop my skills in this area as much as possible. After a couple of years back in New Zealand I returned to Tokyo with my fiancée Hiroko in January 2007 to work as a lawyer. I am now dividing my rugby time fairly equally between the Tokyo Gaijin and the Yokohama Country and Athletic Club (where I am 1st XV vice-captain for the 2007/08 season). The Tokyo Gaijin are kind enough to let me run training sessions for them whenever I am available to do so.
