Hit the Ground Running: JP Duminy’s Classic Techniques and Tactics  [1010.201.010.002]

I'm JP Duminy and this is the classic techniques and tactics of my 2-course series on batting: Hit the Ground Running.

In this exclusive course I show you not just my basics to classic technique, but also the tactics I use to be a successful batter.

It's a perfect base to play all forms of the game.

The course is a combination of online videos, downloadable dossiers, worksheets, interviews, forums and drills: all produced at my home ground of Newlands in Cape Town.

I'm doing this exclusive online course for the first time because I've always been grateful for the coaching I received when I was developing my game.

As a youngster I admired players like Herschelle Gibbs but only got to learn from him when I made it as a professional.

When you enrol on this course you get access to me in the way I wished I had access to top players growing up.

Like I found myself playing with Herschelle, maybe you will find yourself playing together with me somewhere around the world.

I can't be with you in person but this course allows me to give you a detailed understanding of tactics I've learnt along the way.

All you need to follow my technical and tactical processes is this course and a team to play with.

So what will I teach you?

  • My signature shots - the drives and cut - alongside exactly how to play them.
  • Why you need a trigger move and how to develop one while avoiding the pitfalls of a bad trigger.
  • My tips on being a 3-dimensional cricketer
  • The exact mental tricks and tactics I use to score hundreds.

Most importantly, I teach you how to teach yourself.

Everyone is different and learns in different ways. With personalised hard work and practice you will make great strides forward. I have seen it happen to myself and this course allows me to show you how I did it. In total there is:

  • 17 online videos with instant access to a DVD worth of video
  • A complete technical dossier on my classic signature shots with coaching points, tactical advice, preparation tips and drills
  • a CDs worth of audio interviews
  • 3 personalised work sheets so you can start using my methods in your own situation straight away.


All you need to do is enrol in the course to get instant access to all the resources.

Chapter 1 - Foundations of Technique
You can't build a house without foundations and you can't play any shot without a reliable set up and trigger move. Because both traditional and modern technique both start with the same fundamentals - and I believe these are critical to your success as a batsman - I'm including this chapter in both my courses.
