On the overhead for example, we can agree that every pro turns right away. This does not seem to hinder them from finding the ball.

Having done clinics and lessons w/ non-MTM coaches, I'm curious to try an MTM coach. That being said, I will return to Newks and enjoy their drills though I will ignore their suggestions about hitting through the ball.
MTM is NOT against early shoulder turn,

It teaches not to stick the racket way back behind you way early like many use to teach (and some still do).
