1. Tennis is developing to this day and has become second largest sport in world.
In 1970s, due to advent of short tennis, age for learning to play tennis increased significantly, and it was possible to start playing tennis at age of three. In 1960s, professional players were allowed to participate in amateur competitions, which quickly improved technology and competitive level of world tennis! With development of science and technology, tennis racket has changed from a wooden racket to aluminum alloy and carbon, which has made racket lighter, easier to control and more powerful. people have to give up learning for a certain period of time. For this reason, ITF (International Tennis Federation) introduced Quick Tennis (Play&Stay in English) to world in 2007. His goal is to bring back lost students, reduce losses and increase number of tennis players.
In addition to short tennis and fast and easy tennis, many Chinese and foreign coaches use their own training methods for beginners. It is often seen that when Chinese and foreign coaches teach beginners, coach holds ball in his hand, extends his arms and puts ball on ground, and students take out rackets to hit ball. This scene can be seen both at home and abroad.
Secondly, peculiarities of teaching methods of modern beginner tennis players.
Teaching tennis beginners can be divided into two stages:
(1) First step: Find and release ball at a fixed point. The coach stands still, extends his arms to release ball, and ball lands unaltered and accurate. Students stand sideways and hit ball with a swing.
In this mode, impact point is well absorbed, which is very useful for students. A fixed and correct point of impact is first condition for student to repeat correct action. move will change and correct move will be lost. Thus, fixed-point release has become consensus of Chinese and foreign trainers on beginner training methods. Although modern serving machines have been around for almost a hundred years, Chinese and foreign coaches still use teaching method of straightening arm to set ball.
In this mode, point of impact is fixed, and you can also repeat action of swinging your hand to hit ball, but this is not enough, you also need to learn how to correctly move center of gravity of body. Therefore, in positioning and fixed point mode, hands and feet learn to play at same time, which means that students must pay attention not only to swing of hand, but also to movement of center of gravity of steps at same time. This is a difficulty. It is very difficult for beginners to use both arms and legs in beginning, and at same time learn to solve arm swings and shifting center of gravity of feet.
(2) In second step, learn how to move and hit ball. At this time, coach throws ball with his hand or racket. Whether ball is thrown with hand or coach sends ball with racquet, it is not possible to re-send ball to spot, which has consequence that since landing point always changes, point of impact also changes, and pitch point must follow change. Beginners will be at a loss as to what to do. They take care of their feet, but they cannot take care of their hands. They take care of their hands, but they cannot take care of their feet. Theoretically, number of correct movements is too small, and formation of correct stroke skill requires accumulation of quantities to form a conditioned reflex, so tennis is difficult to learn.
Third, my countermeasures:
It has been almost a hundred years since modern tennis ball machine was invented. But way of teaching ball has never changed, that is, learning ball while standing. Whether it's short tennis or fast and easy tennis, beginners also study ball while standing. Result: Tennis is hard to learn.
Since this year, I have launched Shen Jianqiu Natural Tennis Ball Delivery Machine and Shen Jianqiu Natural Tennis Four Step Teaching Method. The ball feeding machine is hardware, and four-step learning method is software. Software can work with hardware. Without equipment, four-stage training method would not be possible. Because first step of four-step learning method is to sit and practice, which requires accuracy of ball delivery point, and Shen Jianqiu's ball delivery machine can achieve this.
The four-step learning method is designed for beginners, whether male or female, old or young. Contains all basic techniques of tennis, hitting ball and dodging ball. From positive and negative shots to volleys and hard pressure in front of net, you can quickly learn with four-step learning method.
The first step is to sit down and play: learn how to swing your arms, including: holding racket, dribbling, and swinging racket. Master correct point of impact.
Step 2. Standing and playing: Learn to shift your body's center of gravity from your right foot (holding racquet with your right hand) to your left foot. ball. Learn to coordinate your arms and legs.
Third step: Walking starts with one step → five steps. Learn to pull racquet with your right foot (driving racquet) just like when you walk: when you step forward with your right foot, your right arm swings back (if you hold racquet with your left hand, you pull racquet with your left foot), and when you pull racquet with your right foot, center of gravity of your body is on right foot. Then use second step action to complete strike action. From one step to five steps, as distance gradually increases, walking speed gradually increases.
Fourth step: run and fight. The steps of fourth step and third step are exactly same, difference lies in speed. Just like walking and running steps are same, if you walk faster you become a runner. Walking and running is a constant exchange of center of gravity of body between left and right feet. To move and hit ball is to learn: last step in movement is to extend right leg and pull racket at same time (while holding racket with right hand as bottom line of hitting ball on right). This is task of walking and fighting in third stage of four-stage training method.
The above briefly introduces Shen Jianqiu's four-step natural tennis training method for beginners. In general, four-step training method is to turn people who can't play tennis into people who can. product! Of course, there are standards for every step in production of parts, and their standard is Senior Coach's Guide written by International Tennis Federation (ITF). Only this is most authoritative tennis textbook.
China's wisdom, China's plan, with Shen Jianqiu's natural tennis ball delivery machine and Shen Jianqiu's natural tennis four steps. A digital machine composed of training methods is provided to every beginner in tennis, no matter man, woman, old or young, can take! The six basic skills of tennis can be mastered with just one learning method and four steps. This is first of its kind since the introduction of tennis almost two hundred years ago!
