She felt teaching was her job rather than skating pro, and founded "Superior Aichi Figure Skating Club" in 2008 and has 9 students (all girls). In 2010, one of her students won the Aichi Figure Skating Competition. She was "Over the moon", but the student (?) didn't get much results in the Aichi Prefecture figure skating championship and was "quite shocked". "I admit that I was a strict coach in the beginning. I've mellowed now. I don't want to have mood swings watching the results. My priority is to tell them the importance of making efforts/working hard. Hopefully become a respectable coach."
