    Great vid, coach tells you how to do it both 2hbh and 1hbh;

    I do it sometimes on head-height or higher shots. On the 1hbh, jumping up into the shot I think gives you even more spin as your racket is moving low to high and so is your body as well.

    I like his way of instruction, he looks like such a funny guy, it makes tennis instruction alive instead of boring. :)

    He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, assuming he takes private students, I wonder how much he charges per hour. Anyone knows?

    I actually applied the mule-kick, jumping techniqe to the 1-handed BH quite some time before I had seen anyone else doing it. It came out of necessity. I had very painful heel spurs on my right foot and was not able to load/drive off that leg for my (lefty) 1-handed BH. After watching vidoes (from 2002?) of Safin hitting the jumping 2-handed BH, it occured to me that he was driving off the front leg rather than initiallty driving off the back leg. Adopting the technique for the 1-handed BH allowed me to hit high BHs w/o pain.
