Danny is a fantastic tennis instructor who brings out the best in your abilities no matter what your level maybe. His enthusiasm, encouragement, and excitement about the game make each lesson fun and his teaching techniques are so effective that even a 60 year old beginner like me is making great progress after only a few months of lessons!
Danny is a quintessential technique coach with amazing attention to detail. Is not your normal hit a bunch of Ball type of class and charge you a crazy fee or you don't learn anything. Yet a series of focused drills geared towards mechanics for each situation.
In said that, I also brought my little ones and he was able to completely change his method of approach and be relative to the age group. Amazing!
One of the best at what he does if not the best!! Highly reccominded.
I'm truly fortunate to have one of LA's and OC's most gifted coaches in Danny. Not only did he introduce me to the beautiful sport of tennis, he has reassured my skill set in order to succeed on the court. With Federer precision, Danny explains the game with ease and patience. His passion for the sport and love of teaching has made tennis a joy for me.
I never thought I would be able to learn and improve so much in such a short amount of time! Danny always worked well with me when I wasn't able to fully accomplish certain tasks/concepts. He was always patient and courteous and gave me great visual instructions to improve my performance. The best part was how motivational he is. His story alone is enough to inspire anyone but he gives that extra little belief in you that really makes me believe I'm going to be able to keep up with the best of them. I don't know if you get to read this but thank you Danny for all your help!
