We met Rishi when my 7 years old son almost gave up tennis. I cannot
believe how much my son has changed in one year. Now tennis is his favorite
sport, and he is passionate to pursue more than fun. Rishi is the reason of this
Rishi makes learning tennis interesting for kids. Rishi plays games with him,
and points out any good hits or mistakes in a positive way to make sure that
he is learning and enjoying this sport. During the games, my son has also
learned many tennis rules. With those solid trainings, recently, he managed
taking couple tournaments independently.
Rishi is willing to communicate with parents and using dynamic strategies to
coach different kids. Rishi always chats with parents at the end of each class
discussing kids’ improvements and any of his concerns. With parents’
feedback, Rishi put great effort to adjust the way he teaches to ensure the
maximum learning efficiency. My son does not like basic foot work training as
“it is too boring and tiring”. After couple discussions, Rishi makes the fitness
training like a competition, which my son loves. He runs, jumps and stretches
with my son. Meanwhile, during water breaks, he chats with my son and tries
to enforce the idea that foot work is the fundamental of tennis. As a parent, I
am very happy to notice the changes on my son’s attitude as well as
improvements on his technic skills.
At last but not least, Rishi is an excellent tennis player and also an
outstanding coach. He points out incorrect movements (gripping, hand
position et al.), mistakes, and wrong strategies in games, he put extra training
on those details, and more importantly, he is patiently waiting for students’
improvement with encouragements. This balance between stress and space
helps my son improve significantly in one year.
I cannot express my thanks enough to Rishi. Not only because he is such a
wonderful tennis coach who inspires my son’s passion on tennis, but also
because he plays as a role model for my son – he teaches him to be
determined, to be self-disciplined, and to be yourself.
