Where do I even begin... Masa is absolutely incredible. As a beginner, the improvement I have seen since starting lessons with him has been exponential. He takes a very methodical approach to coaching, helping you understand the big picture and the mindset that comes with learning and improving your skills. His drills are effective and he explains things very well; using parallels to the type of athlete you are/were and encompasses that into how you approach the game. Most of all he is kind and non-judgmental. He has a very calming presence/aura and as someone who is very uptight/high strung and used to doing high intensity athletics/exercise- this is SO important because being calm and focused while learning the game of golf is key. He also is very funny, we had many laughs during our lessons which also to my previous point helps loosen me up when I am trying to just relax and focus. Thank you so much Masa for all you have taught me it has been more valuable then you know.

It was my pleasure to be your first coach teaching such a athletic person. You are so physically and mentally ready for this game that I can see you to be fantastic golf player. I wish you the best of luck!

I've been away from golf for 6 years and Masa was able to provide feedback and drills to get me back to the game I love. Masa is super responsive and flexible when it comes to scheduling. He is available for lessons in three different locations in the Bay Area. I highly recommend him!

Thank you for your kind words, Charles. You’re one of my students who are so athletic that you can adapt someone else’s swing. Golf is difficult sport but finding your unique swing by biomechanics of your body is less painful and more effective way to improve. I’m glad to help your game.

Masa is my first professional teacher experience. Never had formal lessons before. As an adult in my 40s learning a new sport, Masa makes every lesson comfortable with easy to understand instructions. He would finish each lesson with drills I can perform on my own. Masa is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and effective. I’ve found golf to be my newest addiction and is grateful to have found Masa as my first teacher.

Thank you, Robert. During few months of the lockdown, all of my students were able to improve their swing 100% just doing drills I provided. They didn’t hit any balls. You can have a good swing without hitting many balls.

Having never hit a golf ball before, I went straight to Masa to ensure I was not developing any bad habits from day 1. In 6 lessons, although I am still very much a beginner, I am hitting my irons with some form and consistency. His long term thinking and approach was exactly what I was looking for. I would highly recommend going to Masa to learn the basics, or if you have a fully developed swing, to seek his coaching. Thank you Masa

Thank you for your kind review. I also enjoy teaching you! Long term thinking works in golf very well!

Masa has a great understanding of the physics & mechanics involved in a golf swing that he applies to your individual body and swing type

Thank you, Satish. I’m grateful that I was able to help your game. You’re one of my many students who were not using your full potential. I wish you the best golf game to come!
