What Sets Our Gymnastics Training Apart?
Gymnastics training is highly specialized. Only certified professionals can provide the best service in any given field. When seeking any other professional service, most individuals look for the most highly qualified licensed professional. Who would choose someone with only a high school diploma and no experience to remove their infected appendix or to file a complicated tax form? The same logic should be applied to gymnastics training. Only a highly trained individual who has participated in the sport competitively, who has been certified by USA Gymnastics (USAG), and who has had experience in teaching proper form can competently teach others and be considered an expert professional. At Manakoa Gymnastics, all of our coaches possess the highest USAG professional certification. All of our coaches are college graduates and have been background checked through NCSI, passed rigorous certification tests, and have practiced gymnastics for many years. Below are a few other highlights that set us apart.
- Experienced, qualified, certified and background checked professionals for ALL classes, not just for the advanced classes and/or the competitive team. A former highly decorated NCAA collegiate gymnast and USAG certified and experienced coach could be your child's coach.

"And when students don't always stick their landings, they're quickly learning that true warriors get back onto their feet, which is a discipline that can be applied in both the gym and when hitting the books." – Jennifer Robbins, Hawaii News Now
"Classes at Manakoa Gym incorporate a range of academic subjects including math, science, and language arts in a way that is tailored to various groups." – Christina O'Connor, Midweek Reporter
Girls talking about their favorite events in gymnastics
and how their lives have changed at Manakoa Gymnastics
In Hawaiian language, "Manakoa" means champion/warrior spirit and the quote below best defines its true meaning:
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” - Theodore Roosevelt, 1910.
May you find your inner champion and awaken the warrior within, so that you too, may carry the Manakoa spirit in your heart.
