Review of the DVD

Joey Aguzin

If you think you've seen it all, you haven't.

Coach Lee Brett has brought a European perspective to American pocket billiards in the form of a

DVD. He already has a book out by the same name and now a new DVD.

It is filled with many new concepts used by Coach Lee Brett. I am only on my second day of reviewing

his DVD and I am amazed at how much I don't know.

Coach Lee's technique for aiming straight in shots is, well, simply remarkable. That alone is worth the

price of the DVD and when you use it, you will agree too. This a new concept in shooting at least from

what I know about aiming and what I have read. I haven't read everything that is out there and I haven't

viewed every DVD out there either but in addition to NEW INFORMATION about playing pool,

Coach Lee has his own VERY UNIQUE way of communicating his thoughts and unique techniques in

a manner that you can quickly assimilate in spite of his rapid fire speech rhythm which matches his

rhythm in shooting balls in the hole at very fast speeds.

This is only my second day of viewing the DVD and I keep going back to the straight in shot portion

and I am grasping the nuances of what he is saying more and more. I'm going to give out a portion of

the secret right now (Sorry Coach Lee): Lee has defined a way to increase the contact point area on a

straight in shot by a wide margin, thereby increasing and practically guaranteeing you improvement on

your straight in shots. I know this is going to improve my one pocket game because one of the most

critical shots in one pocket is when your opponent scratches and leaves you with ball in hand behind

the line. Many times, you may find yourself wanting to shoot a straight in shot but fearing that if you

miss, you will turn the table back over to your opponent and quit possibly lose the entire game or match

because of missing. It does appear to me that Coach Lee has defined a way to increase that contact

point from one contact point to a FEW CONTACT POINTS. He explains it quite well although on my

first view, I only captured what he was doing and didn't understant how it works.

Coach Lee goes through the ENTIRE PROCESS of shooting a shot and provides one of the finest preshot

routines ever discussed on film.

I appreciate Coach Lee coming to America to share some of these European secrets that he has

developed and already shared with great players such as Darren Appleton, Mike Dechaine, Shane Van

Boening and many others. I was fortunate enough last year to spend a short time with Coach Lee in Las

Vegas where he gave me a glimpse of what is contained in the DVD.

Big kudos go to Coach Lee for putting together a comprehensive DVD that covers most of what you

need to improve your pool game.

I showed Coach Lee's SECRET of shooting straight in shots last night to a TOP PLAYER in New

Orleans last night at Buffalo Billiards (we shared first and second place in Buffalo's Tuesday night

handicapped 9 ball tournament) and he told me that is how he aims straight in shots. I almost blew a

gasket when I exclaimed, "WELL, why didn't you tell ME?" He has offered much help in the past for

my game and I was agitated that he didn't tell me about this technique. Anyway, I showed the technique

to another player, who is probably a C player and he was able to perform the technique immediately,

avec quizzical look on his face.

As I hone some of the other techniques and fundamentals that Coach Lee shares in the DVD, I will

share some of them in this thread.

I don't particularly want to just give away Coach Lee's secrets indiscriminately. He's trying to make it

in America, too and I have a lot of respect for that. So if you have some available cash for a VERY

GOOD DVD with information that you have never seen before, you will be doing yourself and your

game a favor by adding this DVD to your collection.

I promise you that I will be going back to this DVD and working off of it many times in the future. I at

least now know that my right leg is my "lead leg" (I'm right handed). Somehow when I was reading

Coach Lee's book a few months ago, I got it into my head that my forward foot to the shot (left leg)

was my lead leg.

Coach Lee clarifies a lot of things that are in the book and shares many more secrets than I expected.

This is more than an instructional video. It is a "coaching video" and your game will be rewarded if you

take Coach Lee's instructions to the table.

I purchased the DVD a couple of weeks ago.....and glad I did. LB covers so many sutle things that are

so important to the whole shot. Stepping outside the box allows for the shot line (for me) to pop out.

I have a table at home and practice everyday the info that is presented on the DVD. I want my practice

to be permanent.

I have probably watched the DVD at least a dozen times and chapters 8, 9 and 16 even more.

The best $52 I ever spent.

Thanks LB

I have seen a ton of videos on pool and Lee's is by far the best. I have a few others that have been real

helpful, but Lee's is better. - istevdeus az billiards

If Lee ever came out with a new video, I certainly dont know how he could top this one.

Like I have stated before, his DVD will probably go down as one of the best instructional DVD's ever

made. - John

 

 

 

 

 

Lee Brett's "The Secret Art of Pool" is a FANTASTIC DVD!! This DVD covers more than just stroke; it's chock

full of good stuff on how to approach the table, how to survey the table, how to improve your mental game,

etc. You can view the elbow drop stuff with a grain of salt if you like, but the rest of the DVD is fantastic.

The best video to cover PSR, and has a simplified aiming system is Lee Brett's "The Secret Art of Pool" by far

in my opinion. I think a lot of what's out there is way too complicated. Lee's style is like a coaching style, not

like some college professor giving a lecture.

Buy it now! You will not regret it. You want aiming? Lee makes it easy. I have a lot of pool videos. Some are

better than others. His is the best to get you pocketing balls. I thought I had come to a point where I

wouldn't be able to improve my ball pocketing. Wrong. I watched Lee's video, went to the pool room and

started making shots with confidence that I had my doubt

I just watched the whole video and will not, repeat, will not share it with any players in my area. Going to

the pool room in the morning at 8 so I can work on what I watched Lee do with out being bothered. I have

seen a ton of videos on pool and Lee's is by far the best. I have a few others that have been real helpful, but

Lee's is better.

Istevedus

Yeah, I really enjoyed Lee's style of instruction. Simply an amazing piece of work.

He reminds me of the nuns in grade school, if you didnt pay attention they would wack you across the

knuckles with a ruler. Thats how agressive his style of teaching is. I'm just glad I wasnt there in person, I'd

probably have some pretty messed up hands.

If Lee ever came out with a new video, I certainly dont know how he could top this one.

Like I have stated before, his DVD will probably go down as one of the best instructional DVD's ever made.

Lee's DVD is by far the best on the market today.

It may very well be the first time, any instructional DVD has ever taken you through the complete process of

shooting pool, both physically and mentally. Coach Lee Brett did a great job. I've found "secrets" in this DVD

that can be found on no other DVD that I have ever seen.

As to the simplicity, yes it is simple but as I continue to watch it time after time, I realize that I sometimes

fail to grasp every nuance of what Coach Lee Brett shares. Reviewing it over and over seems to uncover

additional important aspects that I failed to appreciate in previous viewings.

I want to take this moment to mention that I have watched Lee Brett's video SEVERAL times and each time

that I watch it I find something else that I missed in previous viewing sessions. I genuinely believe that

Coach Lee Brett has provided a MAJOR instructional video for the masses to improve their game. I really

don't know of any video that I can single out that covers so much of the game. Coach Lee pounds home

point after point and it actually so much information that it is almost impossible to take it all in and utilize it

after only a couple of viewings.

Hope you get as much benefit from Coach Lee's video as I have received. He has produced a lot of NEW

INFORMATION that hasn't been available to the general public, especially in this part of the world.

JoeyA

That video was amazing. The alignment section was easily the best thing for me.

Beiberlvr

I highly recommend the DVD. I usually have a hard time sitting through a video like this without falling

asleep. But I have watched it twice now and both times in one sitting. It is very informative and Lee's style

keeps you interested. Good stuff!

JMW

There's a ton of good info you'll never get from the typical video. Worth every penny!

Best, Mike

Mikjary

so I ordered mine and got it in a couple days. Really really good dvd. I'm glad I ordered it. I really like the

info presented. Its different than most of the other dvd's you order. Well worth the money and gotta say if

I'm ever around where Lee is at I'm definetly taking some lessons. Well done Lee.

Houstoer

Lee's straight in shot thoughts are golden once they set in. I'll never look at straight in or just off center

shots the same again.

Excellent DVD even if it were twice the price, Lee gives up some big knowledge and insight in this one.

I use the elliptical machine for 38 minutes and I just let Coach Lee's video run while i do my workout. I

think that it is actually helping my game because some of the things are sinking in.

Hope you get as much benefit from Coach Lee's video as I have received.

Maybe we will see each other at Tunica. I still haven't concreted any plans for Tunica but it is in the

makings...he has produced a lot of NEW INFORMATION that hasn't been available to the general

public, especially in this part of the world.

I will preface this by saying the best book on fundamentals is by far Lee Brett's book. And I have read

nearly 50 books. All the classics. Lee's is great. I am awaiting his video

I highly recommend the DVD. I usually have a hard time sitting through a video like this without

falling asleep. But I have watched it twice now and both times in one sitting. It is very informative and

Your book is outstanding. It encompasses everything that I had to painstakingly figure out on my own

for 20 years and MORE. (I’m 39.) You should rename your book the, “REAL Secrets of Pool.”

The neat thing about your book is that, even for advanced players, it will help them rethink and perfect

their game in areas such as the PSR. In my case, I already had figured out that I needed to turn the SC

off when entering the box. You give the reader a methodology for filing the concepts in the brain easily.

Comments about the promo for the DVD.

The quickest 15 minutes on pool that I have watched. Quick because it is pack with information and

presented very well. Thanks Lee & Mark. -resmock

Just finished watching Lee Brett’s DVD preview on YouTube. It’s almost 15 minutes long and has

more info on it than he probably should have released for free. Very knowledgeable fellow. Some great

new insights into pool instruction. Even the Old Beard learned a few things, and verified a few others.

Along with body fundamentals, aiming, and the other necessities, he touched on Mental Aspects, a

favorite subject of mine. Body language, pesona and such. If you are ever going to play good, you had

better earn respect from your opponent.

Lee,

I wish you all the best with your book and dvd sir. I watched the trailer and really liked what you had to

say. You have some very good material and I especially like guarding the yard. Great concept, I use

some similar techniques when teaching my stuff.

Again my friend wishing you all the best.

God Bless,

Charlie “Hillbilly” Bryant

Awaiting my copy. No telling what the hell he might have to say in the paid version.

I liked it. I read his book and will be one of your first buyers when it’s done.

I think he presents his material well. He comes across strong and confident just like his lessons teach. I

liked the part when he’s long on a leave and says “just come to the table as if this is the shot you’ve

been given”. << This totally keeps your emotions in check.

Just like in golf, if you hit a bad shot and take it to the next shot, you’re not fully present to make

another shot.

I liked it. Especially the psych aspect of the game. It may sound obvious, but few players use that

method. Aiming I liked as well…

Thanks!

Just as I thought it would be! Lee speaking quickly, enthusiastically and shooting bullets into the

pockets. The way I see it, he’ll give up a couple of hours of top notch info in one hour of

speaking. Such a deal!

I’ll take one as soon as they’re available.

Lee’s teaching style is an infectious energy release. He speaks plainly and puts his message out from

every imaginable angle. Your gears start to turn as he addresses issues and covers all the bases. And at

the same time…he seems to be pretty calm! How does that work?

Best,Mike

Lewie

The promo looks excellent. His style of coaching clicks with me. The positive attitude advice is key

too! I’ll be one of the first to buy the dvd. Just wonder if I’d need the book as well?

Bdflad

Great job Mark and Lee, if what we saw in this clip is what was chosen to be taken out I can only

imagine how good the stuff is that was left in. Again, good job fellas.

Mr Hoppe

Nice job guys. I have no problem understanding with the accent, and don’t think many others will

either. I like the concept of “my yard.”

Roy Vadas

I have just finished a 2 hour workout on the table (with the book) concentrating on the eye patterns and

I am hooked =) Love the information written and cannot wait for the DVD release. I will be one of the

first ones to buy it as well. Brilliant!

I love the way you present the information in the video clip Lee. Very to the point and confident.

Regards,

~Roy

I like that. Very easy to understand. I like the mental Aspect and the idea of leaving your energy around

the table. If you think thats not true, think again.

As a 3rd degree Reiki practitioner I have a pretty good understanding of energy. Yes, it is very much

possible to leave your positive energy at the table. Most people can pick up both negative and positive

energy.

If you are exuding confidence, its just not a matter of seeing it re body language, your opponent will

actually feel it when he steps into your arena that you have been guarding, as Lee puts it. This is

something that I don’t recall hearing before in any of the DVDs that I have.

If Lee understands this concept, you can bet he understands a lot more.

Good stuff Lee.
