I am a native Japanese language teacher. I have taught academic Japanese for 15 years at high schools in Long Beach USD and community colleges in Orange county. I am officially retired now, but I still teach part-time on Wednesday for one hour and Saturday morning classes for 4 hours. My Saturday class is very academic and was approved for high school credit test preparation. I can teach both conversational Japanese and academic Japanese.
I have played table tennis during my high school days for only a year and a half and reached the final in regional tournament and at a college for 2 years in Japan.
I have coached high school students when I was in Japan and three middle school students in Santa Ana and presently adult students at YMCA in Torrance.
I go to out of state for a senior tournament once a year and top 3 finishers in men's single, men's doubles and mixed doubles events for the last 4 years.
It is very important to have a good swing/stroke form in the beginning because once you got bad forms or habits, it is too difficult to correct.
