World Renowned Skeet Instructor and Visual Training Expert

For pricing and availability call: 210-383-6554

JOHN SHIMA's father was an avid sportsman and introduced John to the world of skeet when he was just eight years old. Growing up, he shot as often as he could, building skill on a foundation of pure talent. 
He competed in and won his first two World Championships as a member of Trinity University's shooting team; he won three more World Championships after that. 
John has dedicated his life and career to helping champions hone their craft, teaching the basics to people who've never shot before, and everyone in between.
He puts shooters completely at ease and shows them how to engage with their targets on a reflexive, instinctual level, and tailors lessons to each shooter's strengths and weaknesses..
John is driven by his passion for the sport, his genuine love of helping others succeed, and by the conviction that skeet is for anyone who wants to learn.
Over his more than twenty-five year career coaching skeet, he has trained dozens of champions and hundreds of new shooters. Whatever your skill level, John is your perfect guide.
