CMBT was founded by Dr. Desmond Oon in 2002 in Redondo Beach, California, with the purpose helping players reach their full potential.
The Center applies the wisdom of the East to tennis, specifically Zen and Tao, and gives players the necessary tools they need to play recreationally or competitively, at an unbelievable calm level.
By following the Center’s teachings, players learn to:
- Concentrate naturally
- Curb anger and frustration
- Reduce on-court stress
- Harness internal energy
- Overcome fear of losing
- Practise pragmatic egolessness
- Derive utmost joy by entering the Zone
Tennis is both an Art and a Science. As such, the Center’s intent is to help players—no matter what their level is—to understand their potential better, to identify and tailor their individuality and help them become the best that they are capable of.
In the eyes of the Center, there are no “hopeless” players but only players who deserve a tennis experience that is simpler, richer, more fulfilling, more enjoyable and above all, more effective and efficient.
