If you happen to be in Japan, you will soon be able to book sessions with an esports pro to improve your gaming ability. According to Japan Today, you can take lessons to become a better gamer in a gym of sorts. Though it'll be the first of its kind in Japan, the Esports Gym follows in the footsteps of similar setups located in Korea.
Esports Gym is set to open May 19, 2021, in the Akabane neighbourhood of Kita Ward, located in the northern area of Tokyo. Situated pretty close to transport links, anyone from the majority of Tokyo could get to this new facility to up their game. A gamer of any skill level could attend the gym and learn from esports professionals, or you could book a space on a PC to hone your skills on your own.
So what games can you git gud at Esports Gym? Well, the usual suspects really - games you'd think of when it comes to major esports tournaments. So that's League of Legends, Valorant, and Rainbow Six: Siege, but also two lesser-known games, Puyo Puyo Champions and Identity V.
As the esports world continues to grow and develop, there are definitely young people looking to go pro in the same way other kids want to become footballers or basketball players. I think it's only a limited time before more of these coaching facilities pop up not only in Japan, but in the rest of the world.
