My Multi-Directional Mobility Training Approach- A flow system of movement
My approach to mobility training is directed at producing strength and enhancing athletic performance. This training method concentrates on a series of individualized exercises that extend the range of motion and reinforce the stabilization of the muscles that surround each joint. The result is maximum body control and quality movement which leads to increases in muscular strength.
Attaining mobility is not the same as striving for flexibility goals. Rather, mobility training focuses on getting our joints to move actively through a full range of motion. Flexibility focuses on a muscle or muscle groups to lengthen passively through a range of motion. Mobility is dynamic and is responsive to how we move, while flexibility is how we might measure our range of motion. Flexibility is a by-product of quality mobility work. I emphasize mobility work because mobility exercises cultivate joint health and are foundational to becoming pain-free, to reducing the potential for injuries, and to achieving the fullest degree of movement in all that we do.
My mobility training method encapsulates a series of techniques focused on quality and precision of movements from martial arts and ancient and modern health practices that are performed - according to personalized program design for each student - carefully and very deliberately until the student safely gains full control of each joint over its full range of motion.
I integrate these joint mobility exercises from multiple disciplines with combat acrobatics movements in the most fluid way possible as means to develop strength, coordination, agility, and mobility all together.
Here I am falling as means of shifting the body from one place to another either to combine a mobility drill and/or to simply brake a fall.
Based upon my study of mobility techniques and my own trial and error experience, I developed a program of mobility exercises that corrected my own movement limitations. I can now do pistols (single full range leg-squat) with my right leg. This was something I was unable to do for years as a result of an imbalance. I also recovered from a serious injury (a groin tear that according to the medical establishment required surgery to be repaired). I was shocked and amazed at my progress without the need of surgery and standardized physical therapy work.
In addition to giving you increased strength and improved athletic performance, my mobility training will preserve the fluidity of your joints which diminishes as we age and promote your longevity at its fullest capacity.
