Antonio, Mallorca

 Antonio has over 20 years of aquatic experience including Self Rescue, where he developed a method to teach survival skills. Observing the large number of drownings, especially in the infant rate, prompted him to do something more and look for a method where they would be taught to survive in the water. Antonio has helped hundreds of families with babies and children on their path of personal growth in classes and personal sessions, in and out of the water. His expertise, knowledge, years of teachings, coaching, development and evolution of Self Rescue is absolutely compelling and combined with Children of the Water we are a step closer to our mission, to help prevent the tragedy of drowning and get as many happy and confident swimmers as we can!.
