How to Use This Book

  • Identify a weakness in your technique, then turn to the corresponding section of the book. Do not feel obligated to read it in any particular order; it’s meant to be a reference.

  • Select one thing from the book to focus on for the next several training sessions. Do not attempt to fix too many things at once; take it one day at a time.

  • Repeat as necessary. Do not expect immediate mastery; true progress takes time!


To supplement the book, you can access video demonstrations under Resources.
