Welcome to the forehand progressions section of the website. In this section we’re going to assume you don’t know how to hit a forehand. Through a series of steps –- progressions –- we’re going to build you up to a fundamentally sound forehand.
The way we’ve taught the forehand in this section differs from how we presented the forehand in the fundamentals section of the website. In that section we went chronologically through the forehand. We highlighted what every good player does when they hit that shot. However, knowing what a good player does when they hit a forehand doesn’t necessarily teach you how to hit the shot. The ordering of our lessons in this section is designed to build you up to a fundamentally sound shot. For example, we start with the contact point and follow through in this section, as opposed to the pivot and shoulder turn, because understanding your contact point is absolutely critical to hitting the forehand correctly.
If you’re able to follow these progressions and master the forehand we teach in this section, you’ll be well positioned to take that shot to the next level and turn it into a major weapon.

Before the course, my serve speed was at maximum 85 mph. After the course, I am serving around an incredible 105 mph. Before, I was suffering with a shoulder injury that was causing a lot of pain. After a couple hours of training, now I’m serving 20 mph faster, and I have no shoulder pain!Heitor’s FeedbackHeitor Durate from Brazil
My serve speed increased from 80 to 102 mph. Before taking the course my biggest serve challenge was getting the ball to drop down into the service box when I tried to serve hard. Dr. Kovacs demonstrated how to generate power using the lower body and how to transfer that power up through the body to the ball. Now the ball explodes off my racket and consistently spins down into the service box with room to spare.Perry Long’s FeedbackPerry Long From Toledo
Bob, Mike and Will's course really revealed the secrets to successful doubles play at the rec level. The drills are all designed to develop consistency and reduce on-court errors. Once in a match situation, Bob and Mike show you the keys to good court positioning, positive partner to partner communication, and the proper match mindset. These things have helped me up my USTA playing level on the doubles court. p.s. Plus it's so amusing to watch Bob and Mike work on court with Will, who looks like he could be their kid brother (ha ha!). Will's the best and his courses are always first rate!John Malanga’s FeedbackJohn Malanga
The Fuzzy Yellow Balls course with the Bryan Bros has been the single biggest factor in my rise as a doubles player. Within the last three years I went from line 3 on the 4th team in our club to line 2 on the top team in the club, in the best league in the county. It is hard to improve your stroke play very significantly, but you can dramatically improve your mental game vs. your opponents. Most of them don't know they can learn more about the game. The Bryan Bros course is my secret weapon, really practical advice, from the top doubles team of all time. And, it is very easy to learn the way Will edits the course into 10 or 15 minute videos. Watch one a day and you're win percentage will go way up.Jay Berkowitz’s FeedbackJay Berkowitz
