      I actually took the USATT club umpire exam. I passed but some of the questions I got wrong were related to Paralympic play. It is hard to be intuitive about what one doesn't regularly experience.

      My biggest mentor as a coach (and a good friend) told me that good coaches disagree all the time. Everyone knows the fundamentals but there are opinions as well.

      He had his forehand issues before he got on the JNT and I have explained that it is not clearly a decision because while the stroke uses too much arm, it protects your back.

      Most of his coaching has come from his parents who are Chinese so your logic is weird. I suspect Harimoto's forehand has a different purpose from what most forehands do which is why it doesn't get...

      Loopadoop is very old and has a crappy phone so he can't follow threads which aren't strictly on one topic.
