This DVD helped me a lot and now have bowled my first 200+ league game @245 after just watching and studying the techniques in this dvd. Definetly
makes you rethink the way you bowl and improve your game. Thanks Norm.. Worth every $$$ - Ryan Uy
Great video... Alot of information to process at once,I just started with approach, ball release and lane transition. First series started with 6 in
a row for a series of 687. The second series was better started with 8 in a row for a series of 728. Next stop.... Senior tour.
An excellent DVD and excellent value for money. The DVD is suitable for beginners through to experienced bowlers - I wish I had seen this before my
bad habits became too ingrained!
This is an exceptional training video. The subject matter is concise and well structured, the video is excellently produced and it's also nice to Norm
poke a bit of fun at himself in a couple of segments. The value for money is exceptional. Within 10 minutes I was glad I'd bought it and everything
afterwards was cream. If you're not studying and applying the information in this DVD to your game, you are giving pins to your competition! Jason

This is a truly great instruction video. There are also some nice drills that have been helpful for release and getting to a stronger position. Norm
’s perspective is an excellent basis for bowlers at every level. It's the best video I've ever seen.
This is a first class instructional DVD, both in terms of production & content. I am in the process of incorporating them into my game now. I have
already seen improvement in my approach & release!
This is a truly great instruction video. I have attended several clinics where Norm has been a coach and I can honestly say that watching this dvd was
just like having him there with me again. If you cannot attend a clinic in person then this is definately the next best thing. Buy it...you won't
This DVD has been very helpful in using visual to explain and show athletes lane breakdown and transition. There are also some nice drills that have
been helpful for release and getting to a stronger position. We have sat members of our High School team and others we work with down and gone over
the lessons as needed and have found this very useful. Now if we could only get Norm to visit us in Allen, TX and teach us a few more things... Very
good investment for High School Coaches!
I enjoyed the instructional video very much. Quality was excellent and the graphics and editing well done! Norm did a great job in keeping his ideas
in simple terms so it will be easy for all levels to understand. I enjoyed how every section went right to point and eliminated the fluff and BS. I
hope a level 2 and level 3 video will be coming our way soon!
Norm is an excellent spokesperson for bowling. He teaches at a level in the DVD that everyone will understand. The DVD is easy to follow with lots of
chapters to review. I hope Norm makes another video for higher skill level bowlers. I would like to see ball layouts (show identical balls with
different layouts and throw them to see the results), how to play different lane patterns and how to stay on top of transitions (when to move or when
to switch balls), mental focus techniques and more practice drills for accuracy and rev rates. Great video Jeff O.
Norm's perspective is an excellent basis for bowlers at every level. What would enhance this expertise would be additional, detailed insights of
reading lanes, adjusting when things go wrong, corner pins, equipment selection, in-depth lane pattern orientation, etc. Norms insights are valued by
all bowlers, and this video is a great beginning. Keep those videos coming.
The new Norm Duke instructional DVD is great. In fact, it is THE BEST I've run across in the last 12 years. I have my own coaching clinics and am a
high school bowling coach, and this video beats all the others. Many good Pro's have produced training and instructional videos, but the Norm Duke
"Learning to Bowling Competively" explains many of the facets of the sport in to easy to understand terms and illustrations. I have been
touting this DVD to my fellow coaches and my students. This is a must-have for bowlers wanting to improve and excel.
Enjoyable and informative bowling DVD for all skill levels. Work on one lesson for a while and your game will improve. The DVD doesn't include
chapters for spare shooting or playing the PBA oil patterns ... but maybe there's a volume two DVD in the future?!
Pros: The lessons are compact
and to the point.
Watch a specific lesson or entire DVD.
Norm is excellent at explaining and demonstrating each lesson.
Cons: The menu
navigation is difficult to see.
Playing DVD from beginning and then skipping to the next chapter doesn't work quite right.
Excellent DVD, enjoyable and informative for all skill levels. Thanks Norm for this video... Willie
This DVD is good but in my opinion could be involve much more exercises. I will wait for next DVD with my sugestion. Regards, Adam Daraz
I liked the video. It was exactly as advertised - for the competitive bowler. I'm glad, because I was a little worried that it might be more of the
same ol' same ol' "beginner stuff". Norm has a great delivery/style and gets his messages across well. His tips/lessons were great for the budding
competitive bowler, as well as the fairly seasoned competitive bowler. They were mostly "new things" that many of us don't read about or hear about in

This is very informative and excellent in quality. I have learned a lot about my style and i am using the advice to help step my game up which is
working very well. Thanks Norm for this video!
I attended a week-end clinic in Plano,Texas that Susie Minshew had in Oct/2010 with Norm and Dr.Dean Hinitz. It was excellent! This DVD covers
everthing,(plus a bit more), that Norm taught us in the clinic. You want a Hall of Famer coach at your fingertips to help with your game???? Then I
urge you to get this DVD! It's a no-brainer! The results of this small investment are priceless!
Norm Duke is one of my favorite pro bowlers and I've thoroughly enjoyed his new dvd. In fact, I've already started teaching some of his methods to the
young high school bowlers in Bossier City, LA and I'm seeing instant improvement and higher scores. Thanks Norm...
Very well made and helpful. Easy to understand and gave me a lot of information on improving my bowling game.
Exceptional Instructional DVD. From an average league bowler to a scratch bowler who bowls competitively I highly recommend.
Excellent DVD. Norm goes into great detail on every aspect of your bowling game. I'd highly reccommend this dvd to anyone who is looking to improve
