I only know of one USPTA instructor here who teaches reverse FH, but he hates WW FH. He also doesn't teach slice to students under the age of 16.

I guess what confuses me the most is how different USPTA instructors teach. Aside from the basic fundamentals of tennis, there are almost no similarities. It does seem that most of their education occurs after the certification process, evident by wildly different teaching philosophies, teaching tools being used, and results with students.
You have to understand, that the certification process is just taking a test, that most just "cram" for......It really has nothing to do with abilities to develop games..That comes from experience. In fact, what I've found is that there is a relationship between and emphasis on certification and poor instruction. Most of us in the business, find the whole process laughable.
