Out of curiosity, is Takeshi Honda still his jump coach?
^AFAI he still is. When Dai made his Morozov announcement Dai said that his current coaching staff would still be in place which included Honda at the time.
Things could have changed since then.
And that's why most of the times Takeshi tends to speak less during Dai's performances at competitions while doing commentary work on TV, because he would rather concentrate on the technical sides of each elements Dai executes. And as soon as Dai finishes his performance, Takeshi normally does not hesitate to point out Dai's shortcomings such as UR, edge errors, and/or lack in numbers of required revolutions on spins. My belief is without Takeshi's instruction and devotions as his jump coach, Daisuke could never have gotton his quads back after knee injury. And I, as a fan appreciate Takeshi so much.
And this is the Christmas gift to all Daisuke fans in the world.
Wishing everyone of you, including Daisuke of course, a very merry Christmas!
thanks deedee and demarinis for the info/confirmation! he's really got a great team going for him right now. really excited to see where the rest of the season and next year takes him.
Thanks for the videos. Hard to believe that Dai executed two amazing programs and is not National Champion.
Yes I understand how he lost on paper, but being a Dai fan I admit that I am a little disappointed. Dai's FS
Thanks deedee for Dai's Merry Christmas video, he is to cute for words.
As I said in the J Nats Mens thread last night, there is no other skater like Daisuke Takahashi for me and there never will be. I truly believe so.
Yes I must bow to Dai's FS... he is so charismatic, mighty and powerful, he even made Morozov infected programs looks good.
Good grief! Talk about fulfilling Mission impossible!!! He's da man, da king, and I don't care about COP, I'd give him the gold today. Best of luck at worlds Dai, good time to teach these pups a lesson in Man Skating!!! I am rooting for you!

I have watched his FS about 5 times already, how uber is that. He really skated a Masterpiece last night.
He grabbed me from the first note of the music and I could not take my eyes off of him.
