ある日、インド人ファミリーがいらっしゃった。

one day, an Indian family came to our diving center

Mum: My 10-year-old daughter would like to join the open water diver course. As I want to bring her to the whale-shark snorkeling excursion, is it possible to complete the course before we join the excursion?  Koyuki: Oh shit…! Generally most Indian people can’t swim well though…. can I  really complete the course within a short period?

The challenge rather lit a fire in me.
I have my own way of ninja to follow…
I’d like to prove that i can make her a splendid diver even though she can’t swim now….

Koyuki: Hey, young lady, are you sure you are 10 years old? You are so little!     Girl: Yes! I’ve just turned to 10 yesterday!

昨日10歳になったばかりの小さな小さな女の子。(PADIでは10歳からダイビングライセンスが取得出来ます)

Firstly, She has to pass the theory….. I was not sure if she could understand all those terms…   Dad: No worries, she is very smart.

心配していた学科は見事 一発合格!インド人の頭脳は素晴らしい!

OMG! She made it! She is so clever!

Secondly, water skill exercise. Koyuki: Are you ready? Girl: of course!!

こちらは予想通り。。。。

However,,, It was as I expected…

しかし、時間はかかりながらも、彼女は一個ずつゆっくり実技を終了して行った。

が。

The most difficult part was to jump into the ocean. Jumping off from a height of 1m was too high for the little girl. It was like a “Mission Impossible” for her….

このエントリーが全く怖がって出来ず大泣き。。。

最後には一緒にジャンプ!

Don’t worry, I’ll be with you the whole time.. You jump, I jump.

そして、ついに無事コース終了してライセンスゲット!

And finally, she passed all of the skills and got the certification!! I was so happy as if she was my own daughter!

翌日、ファミリーでジンベイザメシュノーケリングに参加しているはずの彼女をビーチで見かけた。

But on the next day, I saw her on the beach though she was supposed to join the whale-shark snorkeling excursion. I asked her why.

IMG_1062
“Because I am a DIVER!! I decided to see whale-sharks by scuba diving!!”  I was very happy and proud of it as an instructor and her smile really paid off!

インストラクターをやっていて良かったと思う瞬間であった。。。。
