Regarding The Wegner Method Hurtado says, "I saw Oscar at one of the USTA Tennis Teachers Conferences in NYC and I learned from that presenttion how easy it was to teach beginners to play tennis with his system. I bought the book 'You Can Play Tennis In 2 Hours'. I still use some of the steps from that presentation in my beginner lessons. Then, I learned about MTMCA through a friend and Teaching Pro (William Vazquez) and I looked at it and I liked it again. It's a very simple and effective way to teach and learn. I even improved my own forehand!"
