Tournament Prep Private Lessons!!!
I video taped all of the matches from the tournament and started watching them to see the errors that were made. If you would like a private lesson to work on fixing the specific mistakes you are making in the tournament please contact me and schedule it right away. This will allow you to focus on improving your games immediately and give you more time to create good technical habits before the next competition.
