Youngjin Yoon - Master Skill developer
New and Better is the Way.
Meet Master Yoon
Youngjin Yoon was born and raised in Busan, South Korea. He began his coaching career with the Lotte Giants of the Korea Professional Baseball League. After working for the Giants, he moved to the United States to further his education, and earned a master’s degree in kinesiology from Michigan State University. A dedicated family man, he worked as an assistant coach at Riverside City College under legendary RCC head baseball coach Dennis Rogers and has also assisted at Linn-Benton CC and Cal State Bakersfield. Since the 2016 season, Yoon has worked with the Corvallis Knights as an assistant coach under skipper Brooke Knight. Yoon is a brilliant man who leverages love and great energy to help players maximize their potential.
Master Skill Development
Yoon is an advanced skill developer (PDF) who has mastered the art of flexibility, agility and training, as well as functional pitching movements that translate to mound performance. His teaching is focused on improving range of motion, endurance and overall health; including mental and physical health. Physical healthwise, Yoon is an expert at identifying mechanical issues and working on areas of improvement, including body control and balance, functional movement, and body awareness. Mental healthwise, he is an expert at mental conditioning, skill breathing and focal training.
It's All About The Love
Master Yoon’s positive energy and loving way make him a Corvallis Knights catalyst. He is able to take a group of individuals from rival schools and different backgrounds and bring them together as a team that genuinely cares for one another. He does this in short order. His love and energy are simply contagious. This love was evidenced no more than by Abbott Haffar, a two-year Knights’ pitcher, who was set to close Game 3 of the 2019 West Coast League Championship Series. In his final game as a Knight, Abbott asked head coach Brooke Knight to pull him with one out remaining so that a teammate who had worked hard to improve his skills and who was a great teammate could get the chance to record the season’s final out. Coach Knight did just that and Colton Meyer finished the game and enjoyed the thrill of a dogpile from his position on the mound. Now that is love and unselfishness at its finest, and it’s inspired by coach Yoon.
