Intellectuals solve problems. Geniuses prevent them.  -  Einstein

 REPETITIVE USE INJURIES, ACCEPTANCE OF MEDIOCRE PRECISION AND OCCASIONAL ERRANT SHOTS, AND ENDLESS PRACTICE TO STAY SHARP IS THE CULTURE OF AN ENTIRE GENERATION OF ATHLETES WHO HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED THEIR FULL POTENTIAL BECAUSE NON-INSTINCTIVE MOTION CAN BE SUCCESSFUL IN PRACTICE BUT IT NEVER HOLDS UP UNDER THE PRESSURE OF COMPETITION. The game you play now has been pre-determined by the era in which you were born.  Professional instruction lost it's way and became non-instinctive about 35 years ago, which led to players employing  chiropractors, physical trainers, and "mental game" gurus. The new brain science FINALLY explains how the body and brain work together during both learning and competition.  It also explains why the all time greats didn't spend much time in the gym getting ready to play and stayed injury free. The non-conscious brain which controls all physical movement has a main priority of keeping you safe.  The precision you are looking for can only follow instinctive balance, rhythm, and spine safety.  ANY CHANGES THAT ELIMINATE NON-INSTINCTIVE MOTION AND PROMOTE MORE BALANCE, RHYTHM, AND SPINE SAFETY ARE ADAPTED BY THE BODY IMMEDIATELY AS THE BODY ALWAYS CHOOSES "WHAT WORKS" OVER "WHAT HURTS".  This seamless change always produces permanent measurable improvement because  when the non-conscious brain is totally satisfied with safety, it switches intentions to precision and finesse. This is the true definition of "natural learning" and the system you used while learning to walk. "Work on that new move until you groove it" and "we need to change your muscle memory" is outdated thinking by coaches who are stuck in the seventies along with their reactionary sports psychology.  Let's get busy.  We will grow your game to new heights at mach speed.  It is the instinctive beast who rules the athletic world, not the cerebral puppet searching for a "perfect" swing.  GET YOUR BODY AND BRAIN FINALLY ON THE SAME PAGE....TODAY!!  It is the quickest path to the consistency you have not yet experienced.  


Grow your game with the same body and brain used while learning to walk.  This natural learning leads to instinctive motion which allows performance at your full potential.  A game as reliable and maintenance free as walking exists.  It will appear after discovering your instinctive balance, rhythm, and spine safety.

​The brain science for perception and movement has in the past 15 years surpassed and supplanted all previous knowledge by more than 300 times and it is time to pay attention!  This fresh knowledge sensibly describes the true path to body-brain synergy (the zone). The new neuroscience also explains why the sports psychology foundation first introduced in the 70's and still in use today at all levels is due for an update. The "mental game" methods first introduced to tennis players by Gallwey and then to golfers by Rotella help to mentally cushion and accept mediocre precision but never demystify the basic problem of "where do my occasional crummy shots come from"? After 42 years of full time searching; the mystery of

the inconsistency that prevents you from reaching your full potential is no longer a mystery to me.  The true answers are found within the new brain science which sheds new light on the natural process used while learning to walk.  The body leads the way while the brain catalogs what hurts and what works.  Any other learning process produces high maintenance motion that never holds up under pressure and eventually leads to repetitive use injury.

I believe in standardizing the automobile.  I do not believe in standardizing human beings.  -  Einstein

​Welcome to all golfers and tennis players searching for answers and not yet in tune with the non-conscious instincts that keep your body safe during athletic motion. And these instincts can never be overridden. Instinctive motion is simply normal motion that the body views as "safe".The new brain science proves that once the motion starts, your body is EITHER instinctively seeking balance, rhythm, and spine safety OR your body feels safe enough to focus on precision and finesse.

 Finding your personal mechanics of instinct and building a game as reliable and maintenance free as walking is always the goal. Eliminating non-instinctive motion is the path. All changes that the body accepts as more safe are incorporated seamlessly and show immediate improvement in accuracy and power because when the body feels safe it unleashes it's full potential. It is as simple as that when you know what to look for.


We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.  -  Einstein
