I kept the videos short and succinct, as all they should do is inform, explain and show. Neither do I want nor do I need to steal your time. The principle for all the tennis strokes as taught by me in „Tennis from the Far Side“ is the same; so my videos share a homogeneous theme that works, which lets them stand out in clarity.

There are many other tennis videos in the www, but most of them are lengthy.
Videos do not work without a book. Videos alone are make-believe. They allot you the part of a paying and admiring spectator—time on end.

My course goes into more detail and works much finer through the imagination than videos ever could. The book has also more wit, at least for someone who can read and feel between the lines. Finally, my book has more facets and its message is more profound.

Once you know how tennis ticks you could improve by playing a few hours per week—I did! Conversely, if your state of mind in tennis stays the same, chances are your game stays the same too, regardless of your efforts.

I have struggled many years and I learned Tennis the hard way. In the beginning, I tried to learn through books, videos, classes, and private lessons. However, this never worked out satisfactory, even though I was a talented player.

At some point I found out that hardly anyone wanted me to advance. In truth, everybody wanted me to stay right where I was. Exactly that I did not want as I wanted to jump levels in my game of tennis. So I struck out on my own. This cost me many years but it was the only way out of my predicament. I knew I had to find the key to tennis on my own because no one out there would truly show me.

After 30 years, now I can show you! The reason is that I am more interested in life and advancement in life for myself and others than holding tight to some skills that I am afraid others could pick up because this would eliminate a dividing line and therefore change or mix up status and rank.

My method will not only teach you tennis but may let you understand life better. This is so because I borrow from principles in life for tennis. Tennis from the Far Side also contains an autobiographical section that describes the struggle I went through.

I truly wish I would have had access to such content more than thirty years ago; it would have been my saving grace.
