Sayings of Squash : Arabian Knights.

train to be the player you want to be.

there are no short rallies within any worthwhile victory.

you cannot cross court until you have courage to loose sight of the ball.

the greatest danger for most players is not that we aim too high and hit out, but that we aim too low and hit the tin.

always bear in mind that your own determination to train and play well is more important than any other component.

it does not matter how slowly you move as long as you reach the ball before the second bounce.

you are not the player in the pool, you are the entire pool in one player.

you are not just drop shots and winners, you are a complete player.

training alone is better than training badly.

do not feel excluded, squash is inclusive.

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.
