I have known Todd Takayoshi for 20 years. My introduction to Todd was as a hitting coach while he was a player in professional baseball. His natural feel for hitting had aways impressed me. Years later I had the opportunity to hire Todd to help develop ML talent for the LA Angels.
Todd's ability to identify the cause of swing flaws sets him apart from the majority of coaches that treat the symptoms. He builds the swing from the ground up in a comprehensible way that allows the player to become his own coach. It's refreshing to watch Todd's players gain the confidence and trust in their swings to reach their full potential.
Todd will explain and define all of the misused, misguided and ambiguous terminology that is used by your common amateur hitting coach.
If I needed a professional hitting coach for my son, Todd Takayoshi is the first place that I'd look.

I have had the pleasure to work with Todd for numerous years and I can say that he is one of the best hitting coaches as well as mentor for any level of baseball. He is a person I would send my son to for hitting tips.
