A message from Kevin Pietersen
I want to introduce you to my two new online coaching courses - Keep Calm and Smash It - because I felt it was time I passed on my experiences and techniques in making it as a batsman and create the next generation of Internationals.
But I don't want to do it by telling you how to do it from the MCC coaching manual because I truly believe I would never have been a success unless I learned to do it my own way.
That's why these courses are different.
Keep Calm and Smash It is an online way for you to learn your own game and develop your own skills the way I did.
I wanted to make a complete guide so I've produced over an hour of videos that teach ideas for you to put into place. You can watch me in the nets and see me talk about:
- How to get on top, and stay on top
- Defeating pace and the ball turning
- The factors that go into making up bulletproof self-confidence
- Dealing with a slump in form – and coming through the other side
- How to develop and play new shots like the switch hit
- Secrets of making the most of practice
There are full colour manuals that contains pages of photos, diagrams and worksheets that allow you to come up with your own specific game plans.
I've even made sure that there is an exclusive discussion forum where you can share your batting thoughts and ideas. Maybe a batsman in India or England or Australia has had similar experiences to you.
Overall it all comes together to give you a total batting guide.
And I promise you not a word of dogma.
The course is out now. To get previews and my exclusive advice (that's not in the course) to your inbox, enter your email in the box.
