Who is the creator of the Distal Method?

Is the Distal Method for tennis only?

No. It just so happened that it has been extensively applied to tennis.

Can I learn it on my own?

Well, as many other educational systems, the Distal Method is science, but its application is a skill. So yes, one can learn the science through books, but the skill needs more personal communication – an online course at least.

Is the course (live or online) enough then?

The courses last approximately 10-12 hours. If you are already a coach or an educator, can you fully learn another educational system (e.g. Montessori, Waldorf, Judo) in that amount of time? You cannot and you should not. It is a good foundation, you will get tools, but the skill of fully applying the Distal Method needs more dedication.
