About using MTM Mikel explains, "I found MTM by looking into ways in helping teach my teenage son who has a non verbal learning disorder. As he was struggling for years with "conventional" teaching pros, methods and academies he continued to be stuck and frustrated as he couldn't "get it". He has been constantly stressed out about remembering and thinking about how to hit or move, etc. I was familiar with Oscar's videos and read up on his site. His ideas seemed to fit perfectly on how to help not only my junior playing son but so many others. I've been working on using his methods on my game and finding how brilliantly simple and natural it feels."
