Old Squash Knowledge for the Young.

a man holding a samurai

The longest rally begins with a serve.

To coach people – understand them.

If your shot was not up forget it. If your shot was out forget it. If your shot goes in prepare for the next shot.

Get rid of the desire to win.

When I let go of what I was, I become what I am.

Soft and tight wins over hard and loose.

Words are nothing, movement is everything.

Living only for the accolades of victory means you are trapped.

There is nothing softer and more flexible than air, use it.

Shape your thoughts, they become your words. Shape your words, they become your actions. Shape your actions, they become your habits. Shape your habits, they become your character. Shape your character, it becomes your destiny.

Wise athletes avoid extreme training.

Samurai’s of Squash.

I choose to compete by choice, not by chance.

You can only compete the way you train.

If there isn’t disciplined training, how can ideal competition be realised?

One thousand shots per day for discipline, one thousand disciplined days for mastery.

The path that leads to championships is littered with the broken bodies of the ignorantly over trained.

To win any squash match, you must move as if the result doesn’t matter.

Be courageous, be released, be adaptable, be decisive.

Control arousal : compete within the flow of the spirit of sport.

We must understand there is more than one pathway to the championship.

Make everything we do contribute to our athleticism.

Squash may seem difficult at first, but everything worthwhile is difficult at first.

Proverbs of Squash : 29 Bucket Lob Serves.

Featured

An athlete who refuses solid advice given fairly

Will suddenly be demotivated beyond recovery.

When sportsmanship is widespread, athletes rejoice,

But when indifference and money rule, the stakeholders groan.

An athlete who loves quality makes their coach rejoice,

But the one who keeps company with vampires squanders their hard work.

With principles a president brings improvement to the club,

but an administrator seeking personal profit brings it to ruin.

An athlete who flatters their opponent
