    Do you know if there's a way to save those "Pro strokes" clips onto my computer (so that I can watch them without the internet connection, like, on the court for instance)? Thanks,

    Have you tried to email tennisone about this, it sounds like they're not letting people do that or they just forgot to make it obvious.

    I have managed to copy any clip they publish using the latest version of Quicktime. I right click and go Save as source then point it to my hd. Perhaps you have an old version of quicktime or maybe you need to purchase the quicktime pro package.

    I would be very careful about that. It could be that they do not want copies of their videos passed around for free. If you are a paying member you need to have permission to to do this I would suspect. I would think in the terms and agreements you are given permission to view these videos but not duplicate nor pass them around. This is a way for them to control their product even though you may have good intentions.

    For example, I am a member and intructor for EASI tennis. However, I have to obtain permission to copy photos and videos for instructional purposes. Even if I dont charge for them.

    go to start then click on the the search tab, search in files and folders, under, look in, go to the hard drive go to the windows folder, then try to find the temporary internet files folder or something with internet files. If you can't find that folder just search the windows folder. then under what to search for type in *.mov and you'll get you movies. then its just cut and paste.

    i can't wait this year college and a lap top, gonna be able to analyze right on court. and compare with video of my strokes

    It's not possible to disable the ability for users save downloaded clips. They can put preventive meatures so the average joe doesn't know how to do it, but once your computer downloads it, its on your computer. It's a different story whether you know where to look and how to save the file for later viewing.

    I remember visiting the EASI tennis website when it was fairly new. They were demonstrating how they taught there star player Becky to hit a flat full western forehand. I could never understand why they would demonstrate this because its pretty pointless. Now I cant find it on there site anymore :). Oh well...

    Is Easi tennis similar to tennisone in there articles?

    EASI is a teaching method not a frame by frame analysis on how a professional hits the ball. The professional stroke is the model and EASI beleives they have a excellent way to teach the stroke to a beginner in a faster timeframe then traditional teaching methods.

    It really doesnt matter what model they use so long as the teaching method makes sense and the model can show the different stages that will help someone learn the stroke - the EASI way.

    EASI believes there are several key areas that can unlock a players understanding of how to improve and accelerate their learning of tennis strokes that are not found in other methods (such as: Bolleteri, braden, etc.). Or explain fundamental concepts in a way that can shed new meaning for today's players. I have found there methods to be true and effective.

    Of course, no teaching method is for everyone. Some learn better with one type of method over another and others learn with a combination of methods. The point is I learned their approach because it provides me with just one more tool to help people play better tennis.

    Thanks alot for your informative reply Bill. Perhaps I will send an email to them and ask a few questions about joining.

    I still have to take my basic uspta exam before I can even start coaching.

    They are very nice people. I got off the phone the other day with them and they are very knowledgable about tennis. They are friends with many top name coaches in tennis.

    They are primarily researchers. They are "behind the scences" type contributors to the game. We need those people in tennis. They along with the work from Yandell and others helps us teaching pros a great deal.

    Tennis is such a young game with many good years ahead of it. I beleive these are the people that are going to help us uncover unknown areas to help people learn this game easier and faster.

    This can only help promote the game of tennis as a great sport to play and learn. I amglad your giving them another chance, I think when you really study their information you will see that a lot of it is based on sound research and is transferable to the courts.

    But like everything there are areas you my not agree with. If yoou dont, dont be shy, give them a call or email them on why they base their methods on certain things. They like that because it helps them validate their findings with you or they will come to the conclusion that they missed something and alter their findings. They welcome feedback.

    Yes, you need to upgrade to Quicktime Pro in order to save any Quicktime movie to your hard drive.
