...The classes you provided me gave me a whole new perspective of the game. The instructions on the different types paddles and rubbers enhanced my ability to adapt to my opponents and add some versatility to my game. The drills on the different strokes and foot work helped me realize how much I really did not know about the game. Now, I can identify my weakness much better and keep my opponents from identifying them. The idea to video the lessons and review them later has and continues to pay dividends to my improvements. I enjoy the game lot more now and I have the knowledge, skills and abilities to help friends in the beginner stage. There is no doubt in my mind that if I had continued to take lessons with you my game would have continued to improve. My goal was to learn a little more about the game and improve my ability to win bragging rights. I recently went on a business trip to Wichita Falls Texas and played at the local community center with some of the locals (quasi) champs. Well, by the time I left the folks at this center were waiting for my regular hour of domination and free table tennis lessons. Thanks you so much for your time and patience and if I get the opportunity to take some additional lessons before I leave Hawaii next year, I will definitely be trying to get on your schedule again....Louis T. Vance
...I am very happy with the results of my playing after taking the
10-Pack of table tennis lessons from Lawrence. Easily worth the money 10
times over. I enjoy playing more now, because I understand the basic
fundamentals of the sport, being self-taught, I never knew this valuable
...My practice with Lawrence was very awarding. I have learned on the correct way to hit forehand and backhand, how to move my feet and what the top/bottom/side spins are. He is very patient and knowledgable. I would refer him to anyone who wants to learn how to play table tennis...Ellen Cheng
...I enjoyed the lessons taught to me by you. There is nothing like table tennis for enjoyable cardio vascular exercise. I enjoyed practicing with you. Also, thank you for your genuine friendship...Allen T. Shiroma
...I would like to thank you again for the table tennis lessons, which has improved my game tremendously, compared to how I was playing before. The lessons for serve, and service return, played a critical role (2005 Aloha State Games - 1st Place, Novice Division)...Ivan Paik
...Your knowledge is the key to your success. Your generous hours of teaching me this sport was very time consuming but I know I have learned a lot from you. All your sessions were most interesting and I have learned a lot. I would recommend new players to see or call you...Tommy Yonamine
...Lawrence is an excellent instructor. His lessons taught me the fundamentals and proper technique of the game. I feel more confident in my ability because I am now able to recognize my opponent's playing style and how to counter against them. Thanks again Lawrence for everything! (2005 Aloha State Games - 3rd Place, U2700 Doubles)...Alan Akiona
...I would highly recommend lessons from Lawrence Ujimori. Learning how the ball spins and reacts to different types of rubbers has improved my game tremendously. By understanding the spin and applying it to serves and service returns I was able to be more successful in games played. In addition to his teachings he has been more than willing to answer many questions about the game that I did not know about. All this has increased my ranking from a novice player less than a year ago to a 1400+ USATT rating. Although wins may not always come against higher rated players at least now I'm competitive in any match and may steal a few games or even a match here and there (2005 Fall Tournament - 1st Place, B Division)...Harley Oda
...10 hour-lesson by Lawrence gave me not only better understanding of table tennis but also confidence. Lawrence was always smiling and trying to make me feel relaxed during the lessons. He sometimes told me "Just relax." When I was having a hard time hitting balls. After his intensive lessons, I went to U.S. Nationals 2005 in Las Vegas. I played in 4 events (Unrated, Under 1200, 1300, and 1400). I had total of 13 matches. I won 10 and lost 3 matches. In each game, I tried to remember what Lawrence taught me and kept telling myself "Just relax." Thanks to his lessons, I enjoy table tennis a lot more now. I would definitely recommend his lessons to other players, especially the beginners like me who can not have confidence and presence of mind in their games (2006 Spring Tournament - 2nd Place, Novice Division)....Toshimi Cho
