It's only his British accent that makes him seem smart (and polite too).

The #1 tennis player in the world has a coach. The #1 boxer in the world has a coach. The #1 gymnast in the world has a coach. The #1 ice skater in the world has a coach. anyone sensing a pattern here?

I would assume that each of these coaches have published in great detail their methodologies so I can determine if the triple lutz teaching technique is up to my high standards.

I would actually expect the opposite. Coaches in high demand let their results speak for their effectiveness. People in a position to seek out those coaches generally know who they are because they can discern the improvement in a colleague and they would ask what they did. Anecdotally, this has been my experience with my daughters' hitting and pitching coaches and this was not even at a very high level- we know who the best coaches in our area are because we ask players who we find to be really good, who they work with. Most of the time, those coaches can't take on new students. And they certainly don't publicize because it would just be counterproductive- they couldn't take on any students who found out about them anyways, it would just lead to disappointment.

One last point, even if they did publicize their methodology, what metric would one have to evaluate if they were "up to my high standards". At an elite level, the only metric is results. If a coach had their students driving in tutus but could demonstrate a repeatable 2% improvement in lap times, could you say the method was not up to "high standards"?
