I'm gonna try coaching somebody later on, but I sorta need to know what kind of skills to focus on first. I'm thinking: 1: Grip. Neutral grip, first, forget about backhands, panhandle, bevel, thumb, etc 2: Forehand clear. Pretty much get down that you need to rotate forearm in a smooth, but explosive swing, open up shoulders to gain power, etc. I'll probably toss in lifts here too, it's not the hardest thing to teach if the grip is ok. 3: Some sort of footwork, probably gonna teach split step, basic footwork, etc. Scissor kick and body rotation will either be here, or when I'm teaching the clear. 4) Variations in overhead strokes: basic straight drop, smash, etc. Using similar swing and technique with clears, just you're hitting down, variation in power, etc. 5) Drives, netshots, other skills which will involve different grip and situations. 6) Around the head stuff, basic backhands, when to use fancier grip, etc. Does that sound like a plan? I wanna make sure that these skills are taught in a logical order which will be practical and effective. I really want to stress the correct skills first because I don't want that person to be screwed over and have to relearn their skills later like I had too.
