OMG this is exactly the coach i wished for Mao way back!! Now that Nakano is gone, Sato can devote himself to Mao. Sato deserves credit for Nakano's excellent basics and all of her wonderful qualities (not the leg wrap of course lol)

Everyone says he's great for skating skills-hope he's good for Mao
Great news - I love Mighty Mao and wish her the best!!

This is a wonderful development for Mao, a great coach at her preferred location. I'm so happy for her.

Very good news! I think it's a good fit!
This is the best decision she could have made, IMO. I can't wait to see the results.
very wise of her, indeed! great choice!
A really excellent choice for Mao, especially since she has not wanted to train abroad.
No surprise here. I don't know why this didn't happen sooner. Mr. Sato is one of the best coaches in the world right now.
Was Sato not available before because he was coaching her "rival" Nakano?
Has Yuka ever done work with her dad's students?
I wish she had gone to Mr. Sato before going to TAT, but I guess with Yukari training with him that may not have been possible. Still, I am super happy she has finally going to work with him!
I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.
Haven't been so happy since Mirai went to Frankie!
This is her, what, sixth coach? What's the issue?
Sixth? Yamada, Arutunian, Tarasova, Sato....
And the main issue seems to have been she wants to be in Japan while Rafael and Tat aren't.
What exciting news!! Best of luck to them both.
