who we are
KGA specialises in competitive and recreational rhythmic gymnastics for girls with additional programs for boys, all of which use the best practises of Russian gymnastics in a system designed by Head Coach Victoria Karpenko.
"I wanted to create an academy where I could teach the Russian style of gymnastics in a fun but structured way and build a team of competitive gymnasts who can compete at the highest levels of the sport.
There is so much talent in Asia, it just needs the right guidance.”
KGA was set up in 2015 with the mission of introducing the highest standards of Russian gymnastics to South East Asia and raising the standard of the sport.
We believe that by allowing the children fall in love with the sport is the best way to develop champions down the road and that competitive gymnastics instills discipline and confidence in children from a young age.
kga is a unique academy where young, talented coaches offer programs for recreational & competitive gymnasts in a fun but structured way
