Dima began tumbling and trampoline at the age of 6 when he was scouted from a playground in his home town of Gomel in Belarus. He began attending one of the country’s best full time sport schools and by the age of 13 he had attained his ‘Master of Sport’ in Tumbling.
At 16 Dima chose to further his skills and joined the world renowned ‘Great Moscow Circus’. For the next 5 years Dima toured all over Russia and Europe performing in a variety of acrobatic numbers such as Russian Bar, Russian Swing and other Tumbling Troupes.
Dima has been coaching Gymnastics and Tumbling in Australia since 2008. In 2009 he worked hard on his own training as well and became both State and National Champion in Senior Men’s International Tumbling (Level 10).
Now he chooses to focus on the training and progression of the athletes at KSTP. He is a full time coach and along with his squad dedicates up to 30 hours each week in the gym.
He is the National Tumbling Coach and is a Level 2 Tumbling Judge. Dima’s goal at the club is not to only to produce tumbling champions at KSTP, but tumbling champions in Australia’s future. Dima strives to help the children find the best in themselves.
