Dear Basketball shooting coach,
Really love the PDF,
It teaches me a lot about shooting, and even more.
Thanks,

My name is C....,
I just finished reading your book, and found it exactly what i needed to read. I have begun the first part of the system, just practicing off the top corner of the glass and can already feel my confidence as a shooter growing.

First off let me say that I was amazed at how much I learned when I read your manual on shooting earlier this spring and saw a significant improvement in my shot.

Learn How To Shoot A Set Shot

- SHOOTING A SET SHOT -

Set shotsTHIS IS BRAIN TRAINING!!!
WE ARE TRAINING YOUR BRAIN TO SHOOT

We humans are defined by our rituals.  Are we creating a ritual?
* Yes; the belief you have of your potential to attain an extremely high shooting percentage when, before shooting a basketball, you take the conscious action of focusing on and then imagining a MAGNIFIED HOOK on the far side of the rim☺
* As you experience positive results, your belief becomes a certainty in your potential to possess an extremely high shooting percentage.
* This certainty reinforces your determination to focus on that MAGNIFIED HOOK☺
* Your determination produces even better results which makes you even more certain that when you focus on that MAGNIFIED HOOK ☺ you will get further positive results creating even more certainty this ritual you have created works.
* Now you are determined to refine your ritual, and your ritual feeds upon itself!

Always warm up then dynamic stretch before playing basketball.  Begin all shooting sessions with the ‘Warming-Up’ section before attempting other shots.

Now that you're physically and mentally warmed up and your shooting form is locked in, because of your warm-up lay ups, move out two steps from the basket and, keeping your eyes focused on which ever hook is farthest away from you (always focus on a hook - NEVER focus between hooks), put up a few flat footed set shots as you slide around the basket keeping this same distance as you consciously locate the hook that is farthest from you – that hook on the far side of the rim.  Take your time.  Be certain you're creating a MAGNIFIED BULL’SEYE in your mind before shooting the basketball☺  No MAGNIFIED BULL'SEYE?  NO SHOT!
Follow-through by keeping your eyes on the HOOK until the ball goes through the hoop.  If you miss one of your set shots YOU NEED ONLY ADJUST YOUR FOCUS!!!  REFRANE FROM CONSCIOUSLY ADJUSTING YOUR SHOT.  If your eyes are focused on the HOOK on the far side of the rim and your imagination sees a MAGNIFIED HOOK at that same location then your mind will unconsciously adjust your shot.
This is BRAIN TRAINING!!!  We are TRAINING YOUR BRAIN TO SHOOT!

Continue to move away from the basket, one step at a time, sliding around the basket at each distance.  Eventually you will reach a distance on the court where your shooting percentage drops below 70%.  When that happens, return to shooting position #1, put up a few until you're feeling natural again, then quickly work your way back out (you return to shooting position #1 to re-establish your shooting form, your shooting technique, before moving out again) one step at a time throwing up a few more set shots as you continue sliding around the basket.
Take your time; be certain you're imagining a MAGNIFIED HOOKNO LARGE HOOK? NO SHOT!  Be certain you're creating a MAGNIFIED BULL’S-EYE in your mind before shooting☺  Be certain you're following through with your eyes on the HOOK until the ball goes through the hoop.  If you miss a shot, YOU NEED ONLY ADJUST YOUR FOCUS!!!  REFRANE FROM ADJUSTING YOUR SHOT, your mind will adjust your shot.
This is BRAIN TRAINING!!!  We are TRAINING YOUR BRAIN TO SHOOT!  Continue this set shot process until you’re about five feet from the free throw line.

Reaching the free throw line too soon can have counter productive results.  Now you should shoot hundreds of shots from three feet to no further out than eight feet from all around the basket, for two consecutive days; three feet to eight feet.  Take your time, when you have that hook on the far side of the rim in focus, then be certain you're simultanously imaging that MAGNIFIED HOOKBe certain you're creating a MAGNIFIED BULL’S-EYE ☺ before shooting the ball.  NO MAGNIFIED BULL'S-EYE?  NO SHOT!
Be certain you're following-through with your eyes on the HOOK until the ball goes through the hoop.  If you miss a shot, YOU NEED ONLY ADJUST YOUR FOCUS!!! REFRANE FROM ADJUSTING YOUR SHOT, your mind will adjust your shot.
This is BRAIN TRAINING!!!  We are TRAINING YOUR BRAIN TO SHOOT.

This two day period of shooting only three foot to eight foot shots allows you time to install this ‘Imagineering’ process with a high degree of positive reinforcement from an extremely high percentage of made shots. 
On the third day work your way out to the free throw line and STOP.
