Malcolm is an expert in his field. His ability to teach the fundamentals of tackling is exceptional. Appropriate for all age levels and sport specific. He has been beneficial for me personally as well as my teammates.

Defensive pressure is something that I really wanted to build on in my game. With Malcolm’s skills and knowledge, I have advanced that area of my game and it is now one of my better qualities.
He has boosted my confidence in tackling, blocking and outworking the opposition in contested situations which I can’t thank him enough. I look forward to working with Mal again in the future.

I’ve worked with Malcolm for years and I haven’t met anyone who better understands the mechanics of tackling and how to effectively drop your opponent.

Bangsy has helped me progress in my tackling massively, when I first arrived at Geelong I was timid to tackle the bigger bodies and would fall for constant ball fakes. Bangsy has helped teach me how to watch the hips, stay low and use my power in the tackle to prevent getting stepped and being able to confidently take down all sizes of players.

Emma Kearney

Since being coached by Malcolm, I have learnt many different tackling styles, as well as, strategies to break tackles. This has helped me take my game to the next level.

I’ve been taught by Malcolm many times over my football career, from U18 TAC Calder Cannons level to Victorian Women’s Academy, VFLW at Melbourne University, and AFL at Western Bulldogs. Not only is Malc an outstanding teacher, he is also highly driven toward improving each individual. His teaching points are clear, concise and extremely knowledgeable. Whether you’re a beginner or experienced in AFL, his tackling sessions are always entertaining and enjoyable, and you can walk away knowing you’ve again dramatically advanced a crucial part of your game. Malcolm has worked to get the best out of my tackling for years, and has been an integral part in my journey to becoming an AFLW player. I can’t thank him enough for his passion and dedication towards myself and the team. I highly recommend Malcolm to any team wanting to improve their game.

I’ve worked with Malcolm during my youth girls years and he was a game changer. He’s one of the few people who knew how to teach an effective safe tackle. Since then, my tackling has changed completely. I can now confidently make a strong tackles but also a safe ones.

Renee Garing

I loved the way Bangsy explained finding a point in front of an opponent where you would intersect when they are moving at pace rather than just being reactionary and falling behind. I also found it helpful to learn about using your body to both break and lay a safe and effective tackle from different start points.

Cameron Guthrie

In my experience as a footballer, tackling and contact is often overlooked as a skill that can be learned and practised.
Recognising this, Bangsy has created a program that effectively teaches the fundamentals in this important part of our game.
By breaking the specific skills down into smaller parts, the players learn the correct methods of tackling and contact to maximise success and reduce the risk of injury.
Personally, Bangsy has helped to really improve my tackling technique with both drills and after match feedback.
He brings a wealth of knowledge to the footballing world and myself and my teammates thoroughly enjoy his coaching!

Mark Blicavs

Bangsy has helped me with simple fundamentals and messaging when tackling. Channel, get in close, hit, drive with momentum.

Our Confidence to nail the tackles comes with the training we do and he has given us that confidence!
