"...I am playing in our advanced (more skilled and competitive) group. Two of the regular players have commented on my improvement and that I have "up'd my game." I have more confidence."
David Knapp
"Through the pandemic, I have only been playing with a small group of women. We were all about the same 3.0 level when we started playing together. I have improved so much and am now the best player in the group."
Debbie Greenspan

"I have just completed watching 39 of your videos, and I have to say you did a remarkable job all the way through! I am a 3.0 player hoping to move up to 3.5 soon, and your tips and videos showing how to do different techniques are great learning tools. Your last few videos on developing confidence, mindset, not worrying about being perfect, and dogma really hit home with me, and I hope to implement what you said when I play in a tournament tomorrow. Thanks!"

(A day later)

"By the way, my partner and I came in 2nd in the 3.5 mixed doubles portion of the tournament yesterday."

Carolyn Ellwanger
"As a coach, I'm sure you feel pride when your students do well. I just wanted to tell you about my experiences with implementing your Technique Tyrant. By tweaking my pickleball grip as you instructed, the advantages are HUGE! Increased wrist mobility, less tension, just incredible! By implementing the techniques you teach for topspin serves, dinks, dives and my backhand shots are all now perfection! No other teacher I have ever had has explained these shots as pefectly as you have. THANK YOU."

How it works

PK Academy is an annually recurring premium video service that grants members exclusive access to highly detailed video courses. 



40 videos to help you get to a 4.0 level.

Lessons will be unlocked day-by-day over the course of 26 days after signing up. Once unlocked, you'll have access to the lesson for as long as you're a member. You can watch later at any time!


If you don't understand where you are, it's impossible to understand where to go.

Inside 40 to 4.0, I give you the knowledge and tools you need to understand where you are, what your habits are, and where you should go.

It's time to become self-aware.


There are loads of different skills and shots that are taught in the course.

Some of the skills included are topspin dinking, third shot drops, drives, and dives, backhand slices and much more.

Other advanced skills are covered like blocking and misdirecting.


Learn to think about pickleball in a way that few people do. I teach pickleball from a down-to-earth perspective. I use simple language that will help you understand pickleball in a way that makes sense.

I also use analogies and metaphors that visually stick in your head and can be recalled as you're playing.


Understanding the underlying mechanics and design principles of pickleball is essential.

Once you understand how the game is designed, you can then understand how to exploit the principles. 40 to 4.0 is littered with these principles.


How should you behave on the court? How do you get more confidence? What should you mindset be going into a match?

All of these questions and more are answered in 40 to 4.0.


Pickleball strategy is complex. 40 to 4.0 gives you the best strategies to win the toughest matches.

Not only this, but the course will teach you how to strategize in the moment, giving you the ability to adapt on the fly.


Learn the critical shots of the game. Step by step in slow-motion.

All 16 videos are available the moment you sign up. So dive in and enjoy!


Technique Tyrant covers multiple shots that you must have in your pickleball game.

The course goes over dinking, groundstrokes, backspin, topspin, serves, lobs, volleys and much, much more!


I believe that top spin is one of the most crucial skills that you must learn to be a great pickleball player. Technique Tyrant does not shy away from teaching this skill.

From topspin groundstrokes to dinks, you'll learn the ins and outs of topspin.


Not only is Technique Tyrant jammed packed with slow-motion video, but it comes with step-by-step guides to all shots.

The course includes on-screen visuals and annotations to guide you through the process.

I know how it feels.

I started from nothing.

I was a complete racket sport beginner. A newbie in every way imaginable.

But with passion, grit, and determination, I became a competent player in pickleball. It was a grueling process.

Throughout that time, I created a website, podcast, and YouTube channel to share my knowledge about the sport.

I also became a certified pro with the PPR and the IPTPA.

Now I get to pass everything onto you.

Not sure yet?

Although I would love for it to be, PK Academy is NOT for everyone. Let me give you a few pointers that should help you to make the decision.


PK Academy is primarily designed for players at a 2.5 to 3.5 level.

The program is also great for advanced beginners or even complete beginners with previous racket sports experience.

Players who are beginners, but are highly motivated and want to hit the ground running.


Players who are looking for quick and easy solutions for their game. There is no such thing!

Players who are 4.5 and above. PK Academy is primarily designed for intermediate players.

If you're not going to be committed to the process, you won't get much out of PK Academy!

Here's what happens when you sign up to PK Academy

What happens once I sign up?

Once you sign up, you'll get multiple emails giving you more details on how everything works. At this point in time, your free trial has begun. You'll also get emails for the next 26 days detailing what will be covering that day in 40 to 4.0. Don't worry, once you unlock a lesson, you can re-watch it any time you wish! You don't have to follow the 26 days exactly.

We require players to sign up with a credit card. This means that once your free trial (4 days) is up, your card will be charged automatically. There are no refunds beyond that point. You can cancel anytime before then!

Either through the navigation bar at the top of this site, or within the emails that will be sent to you, you'll be able to access all of the course materials in the member's only area.
