Coach Ochi Back at STA

I was able to hit in a lesson today with Coach Ochi who recently come back from the tour.
Training the No#.2 player in Japan was a challenging few weeks. He said he will go back on tour with Soeda Go within a few weeks.

Coach Ochi's lessons are quick and make the students really work hard. Good footwork and being able to hit the ball in are a must. he makes you hit it until you can get it in.  His boot-camp style training is challenging and makes players exhausted, but its work the burn since you are really getting something out of the lesson. Whether it be burning calories or working on specifics in your game, it is all possible in his lessons.

Thank you for the wonderful learning experience!!

Issues Around he World

In Japan, the ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry reported that Japans' output has dropped to a record 15.3% from February to March due to the recent disaster.
Many business and factories have closed or have had to cut back dramatically on output which has sharply effected the Japanese economy. Things are expected to recover, but how long will it take???

In Cambodia & Thailand seven continuous days of border clashes has led to numerous deaths.
On the 27th of April (Wed) Cambodian leader Hun Sen had publicly accused Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajivi of "loving war and provoking conflict."

Things around the world are not looking to bright, but then again News tends to always be negative.
No news is Good news~~~

Have a wonderful day!! Live Each day. Day by Day!!

Lesson at STA Sanwa Tennis Academy

Hello Everybody,

My group lesson today was with three lovely intermediate to advance ladies. We worked on forehand &backhand side to side movements and back & forth as well.
The ladies had an exhausting, but fun time when the movement was back&forth.

Near the end we worked ok doubles formation and tactics.  It was important to emphasize on moving with the ball and how to determine what kind of ball is being hit by observing the ball in flight.

Overall we had a nice work-out!!
