Summary

The ultimate guide to living in the wild from finding shelter and food to knowing the many uses for antlers, mud, animal fat and more.   Imagine being dropped in the woods with little more than a knife, your wits, and the shirt on your back. You’d need more than luck to survive. You’d need the knowledge and skills covered in Ultimate Bushcraft Survival Manual.   In this book, survival expert Tim MacWelch examines how primitive cultures around the world and throughout history have made their own shelter, weapons, tools, and more. He also shares clever, MacGuyver-style ideas for repurposing anything you might find in your pockets or pack. Whether your goal is to test yourself against nature, be prepared for any catastrophe, or learn more about traditional survival techniques, this is the book for you.

    The awareness game

    Tennis is awareness. This study of technical, strategical, tactical, physical and mental awareness, as
    well as that of a person’s own personality, is the common theme of each chapter of this book and in every approach I take to coaching.
    Tennis exposes strengths and weaknesses. It is an equalizer, putting everyone on equal footing. On the court, there is no one you can ask for help.
    There is only you, your abilities and your experience in an unpredictable situation, where the only certainty is the awareness forged by experience.
    I took my inspiration from the Spanish Method of Luis Bruguera for who needs certainties and solid points, to the development of stances and podalic proprioceptivity of S. Sosa and A. Musulin, fundamental for a solid technique. Visual training analysis by postural and behavioral optometrist is
    the starting point to search motorial awareness. Chapters about psychomotor development analyze motor literacy building in which you can grasp that you can’t omit any letter. Criticalities in losses of balance accustom to adapt yourself to any situation E. Meyer affirms. American methodology by G. Jaramillo suggests the monothematic approach to automate learning.
    My work is also founded on my studies in Sport Science, following in-depth study and then, more importantly, on testing – first on myself and then on thousands of athletes that have truly brought “The game of awareness” to life.

    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.
