Performance Class: Spring Training

For the Japanese students living in Thailand their spring holiday lasts for nearly one month. The students in our performance class take advantage of this time to practice early morning. Coach Sakai has been running the morning practice session from 7 till 9 going three weeks. Great opportunity to build additional mental and physical strength. Oh..I notice we are not a full team today.

One of our older boys playing in U14 Koki. He is very talented using his creativity and flexibility to his advantage. 

We'd like to say our third in command Masaki who also plays in U14. He is very powerful on both wings and has a great face-up backhand. Personality type: mellow.

This good looking young man is Keito who plays in U12. What were you doing with the singles sticks? Keito likes to pay attention to detail and plays a big game. Packs a lot of spin on the ball. 

Mami our young female star playing U12. She has been with us for numerous years.
Don't let her cute likeable personality fool you. She has an aggressive on court game. 

And finally, Kosei is our youngest in the group playing up in age U12. He is our left handed lone wolf who packs a big punch on his forehand. He comes up with some amazing angles on his backhand as well. 

We have a few more members who were not here this morning that we'd like to introduce for next time until then:
