Look & Learn

Look and Learn

A Training programme of the new dimension

“Look and Learn – Tennis Basics“ employs the principle of the cinema of the mind: the aim is to imprint on the memory as precise an image of optimum stroke technique as possible by the detailed observation of movement sequences. This image can be recalled on court and your own stroke technique lastingly improved.

“Look and Learn – Tennis Basics“ thus becomes an ideal training partner for all tennis players – from the ambitious beginner to the experienced professional.

Superslomo

Most modern video standards

Technically, with high-speed shots and high definition big points sets new, future-proof standards in the digital video field. In contrast to conventional photographic technology at 25 frames a second, high-speed technology achieves takes of up to 4,000 frames a second. When played back in super-slow motion, the result is a seamless sequence of movements in which no detail remains hidden from the spectators. At the same time high-definition production gives a sharply defined picture. In this way "Look and Learn – Tennis Basics" visualises movement sequences with hitherto unknown precision.

Interactivity

Interactive choice of perspective

The innovative training concept is supported by the multi-angle function: for each stroke technique the DVD offers an interactive menu in which individual scenes can be viewed from different perspectives. For the first time, thanks to this innovative technique, details can be seen which have until now remained hidden from view. By means of super-slow motion the observer gains a comprehensive and perfect idea of the movements.

Tips by Charly Steeb and Markus Hornig

(Tennis Basics, Part 1 only)

Three-time Davis Cup Winner Carl-Uwe Steeb and German Tennis Federation A-class trainer Markus Hornig give decisive tips on how best to apply what you have learnt to your own stroke technique.

Says Charly Steeb,

"Look and Learn – Tennis Basics" visualises all the professional sportsmen's movement sequences in as much detail as possible. The spectator, as it were, looks over the players' shoulders. He can directly follow and rehearse all the movements of the forehand, backhand, service, return and volley groundstrokes in super-slow motion."
