“I’m very pleased with the Premium website and I’m learning a lot every time I watch your videos. They are moderately long and shot from different angles (and in slow-motion), which make it clear and easy to follow. You are so good at explaining things in a simple and clear manner!This is the best website for tennis I’ve found! I’m very pleased with the Premium website. I’m getting better and better every time I play. I’m located roughly a bit above intermediate, but watch most Advanced videos, so I learn a lot of new stuff. This is the biggest change for me since I changed from neutral stance to open stance.

Thank you very much for a wonderful site. I even let my 10 year old and 7 year old son watch your videos. Thanks, Tae!”

“I’ve bought thousands of dollars of tennis instruction and training from online websites and from my experience, I can tell you exactly why Lock and Roll Tennis stands out:

  • All strokes are broken down for novice, intermediate, and advanced players. I made fast progress because I could start with my current skill level and see what the Advanced version looks like, making it much easier to mimic and get the “feel of the stroke.” My backhand has gotten much better in just a few weeks.
  • Tae’s videos really show you how to get the most energy into your shots by using your weight and the rotation of your hips and shoulders. After watching the Premium videos, I can actually feel the ‘whip’ in my strokes.
  • The videos are long enough, and get to the core of the lesson without any fluff. Tae completely covers the lesson and I always feel like I get more value than the cost of membership.
Get the Premium membership, find your biggest weakness, and watch the videos. You’ll be very, very happy. Thanks for everything, Tae – especially my backhand!

“All the step-by-step tutorials have a very clear purpose and focus, allowing you to improve your skills dramatically. Excellent angles. Easy to understand explanations. Up to date information. New tennis videos regularly issued. Awesome slow motion.Any idiot can make things complex. It takes a genius to make things simple. Thanks to Tae’s brilliant “lock and roll” concept, I have become a different player with more speed, strength, and confidence.I highly recommend that any tennis player take benefit from Tae’s videos. A million thanks, Tae.”

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your modern tennis forehand video. You have a perfect forehand and this is exactly the shot I have been trying to master for the last few months.It has been a huge help for me to try and work out what I have been doing wrong, and I am making progress on correcting these things.”

 

“I stumbled across your videos on the net today. I have to say they are the best that I have seen and cover a broad range of wonderful topics. I learned to play in the seventies so adapting to the modern game is a real process for my 51 year old body.  Interestingly I remember a coach in the mid 70′s teaching us how to move through the ball on the backhand approach with the backstep  as you teach. I wish you were on the east coast so I could take some lessons from you. Thank you for your efforts and blessings.”

“It’s been an interesting year of tennis for me. Last year, I could barely hit a ball (probably a rough 3.0) but with your videos and an iPad app called Coachmyvideo, I am now hitting against 4.5 players. I can’t win against them since I have a very little strategy knowledge but I can hold a rally. Because of your videos, my forehand is probably my go to shot and I’m getting a little more confidence in my volleys too. My backhand is still a weakness but I’m starting to figure it out.Thanks again for you all help so far. Your instructions are probably the best i’ve seen on the web!”

- Nitesh Mehta

 

“Forehand speed increased dramatically just by applying the rotate and snap action shown on this video! Thanks for taking the time to make these videos. :)

- officialcalummenzies

“Thanks, you have no idea how helpful this has been, yesterday I had my practice session and was doing the drum technique, before my shots were just loopy top spiny , a safe shot but without the authority to finish it, now the shot even sounds different =)”

“This is the best instruction I have ever seen, my forehand improved after I watched this video.”

- chencherman

 ”I have just discovered your website and I wanted to express my gratitude to you for posting such truly excellent instructional information. Thanks again for putting together such an inspirational site – I’m getting back into tennis after a hiatus of over 10 years and your videos have given me such encouragement.”

Chris Baker

 

“For the past two months, my forehand has been the ailing part of my game. I tried using everything; especially, youtube videos. I came across your video and applied the same techniques you emphasized, WOW! The feel of each shot is priceless. Thank you so much, I will habituate your techniques every time I play.”     

- javierf4280

 ”Great instructions. so simple. I love your forehand volley video. I was wondering why I could not control my forehand volley and after viewing your video, I realized that I wasn’t using my off hand at all. Once I started following your instruction, I can control my volley.”

“Came upon your excellent tennis site. David Breitkopf is someone I knew way back when from Eastern tennis days.  David and I played against each other in a match when I was in college (he was several years younger than I).  I think we also practiced with each other after we played that match.  He was a really nice person and dedicated to tennis for sure.  You had an excellent mentor.  In any event, would love to talk tennis to you.  I am involved in a charity program, Norwalk Grassroots, that teaches tennis to at risk kids.  Would love to implement your ideas with them.”

Edward Weiss

“Your approach shot looks very mean! Nice video. No nonsense, simple advise on rhythm and coordination and bold example. Moreover, you took the time to connect the dots. 3 minutes and a wonderful post. Nice work, I will definitely refer to it when required. “Wonderful! I think Bolletieri should watch his @$$ out ’cause he’s gonna see his students change their coach!”

    You could play into your 70′s so don’t worry about just starting.

  3. In agreement w/ the previous comments, your clips are as good as it gets re the principles and physics of shot production as related to human biomechanics. I’ve rediscovered my fanaticism for tennis and, in recent instruction re my forehand, a coach advised me to adopt a sideways stance (i.e. not an open stance but rather getting my left leg in front). Results were good in practice w/ him –you can always groove a stroke as I was doing– but I’m not sure I’m confident of hitting winners and keeping the ball in play relying on getting my left leg in front for the forehand during competiton. Any thoughts, guven you’re an ‘open stance’ guy?

    Francis Wood, I haven’t seen you play so it’s difficult to gage wether an open or neutral stance is right for you. Why commit to just one stance when you can use both? I use the neutral stance as part of my repertoire specially when the ball is short and I need to step in. When my opponent hits the shot deep, almost always, it will be an open-stance forehand. As long as your body is rotating properly, both stances should work. Thanks
