    Very good at explaining. Works based off of the person's lifestyle.

    Masa is a very professional instructor who helps you achieve your goal with a constructive lesson plan. My friend and I recently started golfing from scratch, but he has been motivating us greatly with his fun lessons. Masa knows how to motivate students to improve with his experienced skills. Even if you are highly-skilled golf player, I advise you to take his lesson to become a even better golfer.

    He is an awesome instructor! Customizes the instruction and tips to you, your body type, your natural preferences and center of gravity. Gives great exercises to do on your own.
