What you'll do

I can meet you at any Pool Hall in Austin or any Pool Table Austin Area or Virtually through Skype. I love to play pool so I don't mind coming to you. For this experience we will use Betsy's Billiards. Its a nice safe pool hall in South Austin that just opened in 2021. There are many 8ft Diamond Tables, the best available, full bar, & great food.

If you are new to pool, then we will work on mechanics and basics. If you have played before and want to improve in a certain area (ex: draw, follow, position, break, strategy, ect.) Then we will focus on those areas. And if you are a seasoned player and you want someone to spot your game as a second pair of eyes, we can do that also!

The main thing I want you to take from each experience is the knowledge to improve your pool game, a general overall fun-time, and a unique game experience you can't find anywhere else. Pool is fun and great mind body exercise. I look forward to showing you the ways of a Zen Pool Master.

Cheers,

Manny "Zen Pool Master" Martinez

I am the Creator of Local Billiards Promotional YouTube Channel "Zen Pool Gaming". I am 35 yrs of age, born and raised in Austin Texas. I have been playing competitive pool since 2011. I really enjoy teaching people about pool and trying to beat them! Its my life passion.

I have been in many gambling matches, tournament matches, and friendly-games. I love to help people understand the mechanics of exactly how to stroke a cue. It is an art that anyone from age 15-80 can enjoy. It's a great activity to do on a rainy day or if you just feel like doing something active indoors. My teachers have been many and great and I still am learning so much myself.

I am very easy going, patient, & creative. Even if you think that I can not teach you I assure you I can, as I have never had a student who did not improve. It's all good!

This was a great experience! I would recommend for old and new players to take this class. Many definitely made us better players at the end of this experience.

Manny was great! We had such a fun time learning about pool and practicing. I’m really glad we signed up for the experience! He was very patient and took the time explaining and demonstrating - I think I’m definitely better at it than when I walked in.

Manny was very knowledgeable and worked with us to improve based on our individual needs. He was very encouraging and gave great tips that can easily be implemented at home.

I’m a total beginner, and Manny did a great job of just meeting me where my skill level was. He is super patient and incredibly observant. Even a pro could use his sense of angles and body position to hone their craft. Really impressed.
