Howard spent about 5 minutes working intensively with both me and Paul on our backhands (Paul’s 1-hander and my 2-hander).
One of the key takeaways for us was that we both need to do a better job with our initial unit turn (when we “Initialize!” as Howard puts it). Get that right and it sets everything up well for proper footwork, loading and unloading. Get it wrong and it can lead to a chain reaction in the opposite way.
Below Paul and I share videos of our coaching session with Howard in the hopes that they might help others working on their backhands.
