Checked tennissmith and a few preview videos there but found them too complicated without need. This is one common threads I am seeing everywhere - over analysis and trying to project each move as an overly complicated piece of science that somehow needs a PhD in biomechanics to understand.

Read a few articles but found $20 per month only for a few new articles a bit too steep for my requirement. Good stuff though and not sure if paid subscription has much more details than whats showcased in samples.

I have also been impressed by Oscar Wegner and his focus on keeping things simple, but the way the tennis universe is divided in their opinion on him, I am a bit confused.

I checked tennisoxygen videos on youtube and found them to be very interesting and looked simple to follow without a lot of jargon or science thrown in. I checked FYB and jeffsalzenstein also and liked them as well but seemed like more advanced stuff and not sure if it would be a good thing to start with. I am more keen on stuff that talks about a lot of drills and basic techniques and how to develop them. Will wait for real life feedback from some parents to zero in on one.
