Naseem Sadik has been teaching tennis since he was 19 years old. His goal in teaching is to provide an outlet for people to express themselves and their love of the game. Naseem believes that helping guide those who want to express themselves better on the court will not only help them play better in tennis but in life. To express oneself is the ultimate form of self-love. The goal is to carry this self love towards the love of humanity and connecting to it others. Helping anyone enjoy the game more with a different level or approach would be what he considers his objective as when coaching/guiding all players.
