Summary

Indian clubs', or 'Iranian clubs' belong to a category of exercise equipment used for developing strength, and in juggling. In appearance, they resemble elongated bowling-pins, and are commonly made out of wood.  They come in all shapes and sizes however, ranging from a few pounds each, to fifty pounds, and are commonly swung in certain patterns as part of exercise programs. They were often used in class formats, predominantly in Iran, where members would perform choreographed routines, led by an instructor; remarkably similar to modern aerobics classes.
This work is a reprint of a classic publication on the use of 'Indian Clubs' and along with a brand new introduction, includes a series of exercises to help you get in shape the old-fashioned way.

    I have tried to show people of all ages the benefits of tennis.  It is a spring board to almost any other sport or activity one may pursue.  I started competing in a wide range of sports at an early age.  Tennis combines the best for all sports.  The movement on the court is up, back, side to side, reaching and the use of both hands.  This also includes strategy and endurance.  In singles one is out there by themselves and the result comes based upon how much the individual works.  Nothing worthwhile comes easy.
     
    It is this experience combined with my love of teaching that I want to get across to the reader.   Tennis is a great life lesson but should be fun.  It also can be played by all ages, regardless of skill or ailments.  There are too many things that we have to do, tennis should not be one of them.   
     
    Enjoy the game.

    Tennis is not a game for the faint of heart. It is one of the few sports where a player must not only keep score but also act as both umpire and referee. A tennis match has no time clock, no halftime, no timeouts, no substitutions, and can last anywhere from thirty minutes to four hours. During that time, players may run over five miles and hit well over a thousand shots. In the end, both the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat rest solely upon the players’ shoulders. So what can a player do today to win more games than not?
    
    John Ruder relies on thirty-five years of coaching and teaching tennis to share a Tactical Point Control System that breaks the tennis point into four distinct phases, teaches competitors how to play in each phase, provides a checkpoint system that allows players to discover why they are winning or losing each point, and shares guidance on how to develop a game plan that enables players to better compete against opponents of all levels.
    
    Winning Tennis with the Tactical Point Control System shares a simple and effective game plan that allows tennis players to excel in the game and score points against their toughest opponents.
