Drop Shot Tennis really helped my daughter get ahead in her tennis skills and experience. Not only is this just a sport but it is a good escape for kids to really let out their frustrations out and get outdoors! Drop Shot Tennis is a very serious instructor so if you are not serious about learning and working hard you should find another teacher because he is the best instructor we have ever been with and anyone will be more than lucky to have him! Excellent experience with him! -Sally's Parents

    Russ is a phenomenal instructor providing exceptional value in a city where affordable tennis instruction is unheard of! I've been taking private and semi-private lessons with Russ for years and what amazes me the most is that he can always spot precisely what in your body movement is creating an undesirable outcome. He's also very informed about specific techniques used by all the superstar tennis pros from the last 30 + years and he'll help you incorporate techniques most suitable to your style of playing. Russ can teach anyone from a complete beginner to a seasoned pro and the process never feels intimidating. On a side note, the court where Russ teaches is located a 3 minute walk from the subway in a beautiful park, making it not only convenient to get to but also a pleasure to spend time on.

    I met TJ as he was growing his New Jersey based training program. Prior to this, I had practiced Aikido (Kokikai) for several years and Kung Fu (North Dragon - Lung Jop Pai) for a couple of years. I had also been a fan of Bruce Lee since the 1970's, and the opportunity to talk to somebody about Jeet Kune Do instantly caught my attention. So many martial arts instructors are, to put it politely, hacks. The average store front "martial arts" studio seems to specialize in mediocre training geared primarily towards kids who will only be there a couple of years, and those who expect to be guaranteed a black belt in exchange for 3 years of lessons and a few thousand dollars;we refer to these as "McMartial Arts" studios. I had seen way too many of these, with "sensei's" claiming to be Grand Masters from distant exotic lands, so I have a tendency to view any self-proclaimed martial arts instructor with "open minded skepticism". While I've never been good enough to indulge in "dojo storming", I will politely wait to be impressed before assuming an instructor is good. TJ Miller blew that skepticism out of the water quickly -- and consistently. He's the real deal, in a very big way. Working out with TJ, I finally learned what Jeet Kune Do is really all about. You can start to glean it from Bruce Lee's writings if you're patient and persistent. But to really "get it", you have to "do it" with someone who's already there. My initial training with TJ was in small adult groups of 3 to 5 initially. His approach was excellent. We focused on basics to start, beginning simply with learning how to fall. As Alfred says to Bruce Wayne in Batman, "Why do we fall, sir? So we can learn to get up." We learned basic punches and kicks, as most people have no clue that a good punch is 80% body and 20% arm. We started stationary with heavy bags until we could actually fall, punch and kick effectively, though still very much beginners. Then we starting moving around, working with TJ and also pairing up with others, alternately holding practice mitts and pads for each other. Trying to throw a punch or kick at a moving target is a somewhat shocking revelation if you've never done it before, and a bit embarrassing when you first try. Now that we were moving, TJ started to really emphasize this, the various ranges that Jeet Kune Do focuses on - weapons, kicking, punching, close-in (knees, elbows, head), grappling and the idea of controlling distance, and controlling the encounter. This evolved into developing an understanding of keeping a distance until you're ready to engage, and knowing when to close and escalate. We worked with a single "attacker", and then with two and three attacker, learning once again how to control our position relative to them so we could selectively encounter one at a time, and use them against each other. As quickly as we digested his lessons, he started including more styles that are traditonally taught with JKD, such as Wing Chun, Kali/Escrima, Silat, Muai Thai, Savate, Dumog and Jujitsu. We spent quite a bit of time on trapping, and blending and transitioning from technique to technique, across styles. The emphasis was always on establishing our "tools" to the point where we could apply whatever was most effective in any given situation - much more important than rote forms. Of course, the ideal would be to practice enough so that the reaction and application of techniques would be instant, requiring no thought and conscious selection -- but that takes years to develop. At one point, I was training twice a week with TJ in the dojo, and had the luxury and privilege of having him come to my home once a week for private training. During these sessions, we focused primarily on the heavy bag - my form, speed, endurance, combinations - with TJ emphasizing the need for repetition and consistent effort. When the weather permitted, we'd work out on my driveway or in the backyard with the Kali sticks -- one of my favorite parts of practice. TJ's skills are, in a word, superb, both as a practitioner and a trainer. I've been incredibly impressed with his mastery of each of the styles from which he demonstrated and trained us in technique, and even more so in his ability to truly keep them as part of his "toolkit" from which to draw, instantly and seamlessly, as needed in a combat situation. I practiced with TJ for several years, as did my teenage son and daughter, and only stopped when he relocated out of state. I would start up again in a heartbeat if logistics permitted. Beyond being a world class Jeet Kune Do trainer, in both group and private settings, TJ is a philosopher perhaps in the tradition of the best practitioners like Bruce Lee and Morihei Ueshiba, something you learn gradually over years of practice with him. All in all, TJ is a unique and superb martial arts practitioner and trainer, and it's a rare privilege to learn from, practice with - and be able to call someone this special your friend.

      Coach Omar is excellent. He is very patient, gives detailed instructions on how to improve my performance, swing and stance, and has a gift for teaching. He is incredibly observant and attentive, noticing that the way I was holding my racket was straining my arm (he was absolutely right), showing me techniques for how (and when) to swing correctly, how to anticipate where the ball will land, how to position myself and, for me, how to move more often! His feedback is nuanced, detailed and generous. He is highly supportive, identifies ways to optimize my game while also giving me praise when I kill it!! His techniques are really tailored and skillful. I have benefited so much from having these lessons and I am very fortunate to have him as an instructor. I very **HIGHLY recommend him.

        Ron is such a special tennis instructor. My daughter could not make contact on the sweet spot of the racquet when first working with him. A week later she figured out how to hit topspin off both wings. I plan on my daughter continuing with him.

          I am an athletic adult who had never played tennis. Arnim set reasonable goals and had me rallying consistently within 4-5 lessons. I was surprised to be ready to play mixed doubles within 2 months. While Arnim is friendly, he was able to firmly challenge me to reach goals. Unlike other instructors who focus solely on strokes, Arnim's approach is comprehensive - including athleticism, bio mechanical, and learning styles. I highly recommend him!

            John is an extremely knowledgeable, patient, thorough and kind tennis coach. It's hard to teach an old dog like myself new tricks but I am pleasantly surprised at how well he goes about doing so. Give him a shot you will be so happy you did!

I have had injuries myself and know how hard to push someone,because everyone is different, and have always worked hard to be the best I could by my coaches standards. My main expertise would be baseball. We can discuss age and sport, but I need to ask critical questions. I will do right by myself and clientele. If you're looking for extra practice, I guarantee success. Besides sports being my main expertise, I am also unemployed and currently going to school. When I am contacted, I will discuss any odd jobs to be done and price.
