Kim worked with my 13-year-old daughter and is a pro, but keeps it fun too. He's relatable and made the foundation stuff important while making her feel good about learning the basics. I would recommend him all day long!

Kim was awesome!! Very patient and entertaining - while still getting the job done! He's got a great perspective on the importance of the basics how that foundation - even simple tweaks - will make a difference that grows as my skills do. "Don't rehearse the curse" - play consciously, so every shot is on purpose...with the correct mechanics. GREAT instructor!!!

Professional Billiards Instructor Association (PBIA)
World Pool-Billiard Association
Nov 2018
The World Pool-Billiard Association (WPA) is the international governing body for pocket billiards. The group was formed in Germany in November of 1987, as a result of the efforts of the European Pocket Billiard Federation. The Asian Pocket Billiard Union (APBU) was formed shortly after, and became the second member of the WPA. North America became the third member in 1990 and Oceania joined in 1992. The Australasian Pool Association represented Oceania in the WPA until 1999, until it was replaced by the Oceania Pocket Billiard Association (OPBA). It was also in 1999 that the Confederacion Panamerican de Billar (CPB) and the All African Pool Association (AAPA) joined the WPA and based upon this the WPA truly represents all corners of the world. The current WPA president is Ian Anderson of Australia.
American Poolplayers Association
Jan 2014
The American Poolplayers Association (APA) was founded by professional poolplayers and Billiard Hall of Famers Terry Bell and Larry Hubbart in 1979 as the National Pool League, which became the American Poolplayers Association in 1981. The two realized the popularity of the sport, but knew, that different from other sports, there was no existing recreational league system. Today, the APA, also known as the Canadian Poolplayers Association in Canada and the Japanese Poolplayers Association in Japan, has grown to nearly 250,000 members and boasts more members than all other “national” leagues combined. The League is administered locally by a network of Franchise Operators, called League Operators, and is conducted weekly in a variety of both 8-Ball and 9-Ball team formats. There are nearly 300 APA Leagues throughout the U.S., Canada and Japan.
