    Yumi's been a great instructor. I've had a handful of lessons so far and my swing has improved significantly. She's been able to identify my bad habits but is patient enough not to make all the corrections at one time. This has helped a lot. She also believes in working on your entire game, so we'll go out to the course every so often instead of staying on the range the entire time. Highly recommended.

    I was very intimidated by starting golf as an adult at first, but Yumi made the process so incredible. I live in west la, specifically marina del rey, and most of my friends live in culver city or palos verdes, so a lot of us talked about learning golf together. It seemed like my friends had at least some idea on how to play whereas I was a complete newbie until I met Yumi. First off, Yumi is a funny, personable instructor, not intimidating at all. She is patient, caring, and very veryyy encouraging. This really eased the tension and I was able to play without being so self-conscious. But when your swing is off or you're making an inherent mistake in angle and all that good stuff she'll quickly catch it and point it out--definitely not in any way that's intrusive or condescending tho. This really helped not only my swing but I got better at putting too! Second, lessons are productive. Its just the right balance between verbal and hands-on instructions. She gives the most helpful feedback and is willing to listen to and address her students questions and concerns too. Very professional, motivating, and effective. I would highly recommend her to golfers of all ages and experience, even junior golfers or those preparing for the PGA.

    I haven't played golf since I was a kid so I decided to take a private golf lesson from Yumi to refresh my game. I kept on hitting the balls to the right but Yumi helped me fix my stance and how to move my hips and I started hitting the ball straight. She also did a really cool video analysis so I could see my swing and fix my posture. Yumi is also a golf pro so she knows what she is doing! Her lessons are very affordable and she is one of the best female golf instructors out there in the Los Angeles county!

    My golf lessons with Yumi were spread through 5 weeks, 1 golf lesson per week. First golf lesson we got to drive the golf cart! I've never driven a golf cart before and it was incredibly fun!! then off to work we went on the driving range. :) By the end of 5 weeks she took me out on the golf course and she taught me golf etiquette, pace of play, trying to teach me the things to not let me look like a fool. I ask a ton of questions and she answers them all very well! My few lessons with her has been very fun. We laugh a lot and we have a great working chemistry together. Her lessons are great for couples, parent child, singles, business golf, beginners, advanced, intermediate players! I think her specialty is beginners since I'm a complete beginner and she's been so good with teaching me golf. Yumi is simply the best. She is patient, honest, down to earth, guides me step by step and with clear direction and helpful tips. She gives me her undivided attention for the entire hour and she goes over time a lot of the times. I can't wait to golf with my friends now and my business clients! Thank you Yumi for such great golf lessons!!
