MTMers will tell you anyone not teaching MTM is teaching traditonal, and anyone teaching modern tennis is using MTM, which is just not true. I'm a modern teacher (and so are the pros who work for me) and I work with current ATP, WTA and ITF players and use none of the MTM tenants I read about here. Don't be sucked into the 'it's either MTM or traditional' because that is nowhere close to the truth. It's just not that black and white.
I also suspected a planted thread but did not want to mention it. When a new user pops up with the first question about this methodology, I was very suspicious. But I wanted to give him/her the benefit of the doubt.

In any case, you are absolutely correct. We are all suckers to constantly fall for this and for assuming that there is any rational basis for their claims.
