Want some tennis inspiration?

Watch this video talk from Coach John Nelson of University of Hawaii, 26 years coaching, third degree black belt in Jujitsu...

A video talk about tennis



"Tennis is like the martial arts...
Being centered, balanced, disciplined...
Low to the ground...
Power comes from the ground up...
Your mind is your biggest weapon...

It's like success in life...
It's about daily hard work..discipline...responding under pressure...facing your fears...problem-solving...and there's a solution to every problem....you are a student every day learning...as you get better, just simplify and make it simple, clean, smooth..."

I would add that tennis is a metaphor for life...it's about on-court heroics...overcoming obstacles, barriers, injuries, setbacks...battling against the odds...formulating a game plan and then executing it to victory..

Best, Gary
