About Joe

Hello my name is Joe and I am a local Mission Viejo tennis coach in Southern Orange County with over 35 years of playing experience and over 15 years of teaching experience with 2 of them being at a prominent local academy that saw hundreds of students each day all with different skill levels. I have played on various teams in Irvine and RSM. I’m still a competitive player with a regular training schedule & have won tournaments, both singles & doubles, at different ratings.

Tennis is a challenging sport which requires ease of flow married with complex nuero-physical functions. After viewing hundreds of students daily and watching how the mind works, I have come up with a system that breaks down each movement precisely into zen-like focus steps which then really promotes accelerated learning.

One of the perks I also offer is isolation of the mental component. As a competing player and having been in the corporate world as well, I understand the variables that we can bring onto the court and how it affects the sight of the ball. Sounds simple, but in reality not quite so. How many of us have tried to be happy, consistently? One thing can happen and you are back ruminating about the event, which then affects other parts of the playing field, which we call life. “But Coach Joe, I just wanted to know how to hit a forehand?” Yes, I cover that and the parts of your mind that will keep retention, focus and clarity. Whether you learn best through sight, sound or feel, I can be very flexible and adapt your tennis lesson out on the court to your senses.

If you are interested in a thorough experience which will have you playing competitively, or just looking to micro refine your already awesome game, please sign up for my 8 wk course, which includes 1 free lesson. Each lesson isolates a different stroke and analyzes the various components to produce efficiency. I go way beyond just feeding a ball to you and telling you to adjust your follow through.

I teach in the Mission Viejo area but will travel up to 20 miles to a court near you, depending on traffic and time of day. I offer private, semi-private, group and hitting sessions for all levels of play. Please contact me through my coach page and I will then contact you within 24 hours to answer any questions that you may have and determine the best schedule that fits for both of us.

Private Tennis Lessons (1 Player): $65 Per Hour

"What I found interesting about the way Joe instructs his lesson is that he goes far beyond the repetition of mechanics. It is fun to do drills, don’t get me wrong. But there were times where my shot selection was not the best and Joe was a great in breaking down my decisions. Sometimes it had nothing to do with tennis and I brought it onto the court anyway. By the way, his drills are really effective. He inserts a lot of secret pro tricks that had a sizable impact on my learning curve!”
