    Just a quick FYI: Mono Santoso has moved to SoCal and will be coaching at SGVBC full time. :) She's getting settled in right now but is available for coaching any time, all playing levels welcome. Mona speaks Indonesian and English.

    Mona charges $30/hour and can be reached directly at: 818-640-1472 or contacting The Club at: 626-307-4650.

    Mona brings yet another perspective of the elite Indonesia training and tactics to the U.S. I've taken a couple of lessons from Mona already and have seen a noticeable improvement in my defense and increased power in my smashes. I can't wait to see how I progress in the next few months. :D

    If you're interested, call for an appointment or come on by and see her play/coach 6pm - 12am. Thanks for your time. :)

    Ahhhh good question, I forgot to include that in my original post. I asked Mona about that and she said no, she is not related to Simon. :)

    ah, thanks for the info, Dan...Hmm, a bit surprise to hear her move down to So.Cal, as i thought she would be staying/coaching up north...Good thing for SGVBC to add another coaching staff member..And good to hear you are also taking a bit of lesson from her also..:cool:
    Anyhoo, I'll try to swing by SGVBC and check her play/coach(i'd like to see her play with/against Trisna though..hehe);):):D

    Maybe afterwards I can play mona a game of Singles.:eek:
