looking for lessons in central NJ. - 05-13-2006, 11:20 AM

I am looking to step up my game some and i would like to take lessons.


Can anyone provide me with a good teacher in the area? i play mostly bar pool in leagues(apa6 in 9 ball, 5-6 in 8 ball), but get to the hall as much as i can.

Looking to really step up to the games of straight pool and 1 pocket.

Thanks a ton in advance

What aspect of your game are you trying to improve? Where in central NJ are you located?

mechanics foremost. I shoot almost exclusivy on feel.

Secondarily, i want to learn more abou the game(s)(9 ball, SP and 1p. Next pattern play, defensive shots, kicking systems.

And i am located in middlesex county but i work in bedmister so my travel area is fairly wide

Well for mechanics I would recommend Dawn Hopkins. She really straightened out my stroke several years ago and she's very reasonable as far as instructors go. She's very well spoken as an instructor, too.

Then you've got Allen there and who better to learn some 1p from?

However, they're both out in Vegas now so I'll send you a pm.

Al Lapena gives good lessons in that area. He mostly plays at Prime Time and PJ's.
