Let's get busy! Removing the non-instinctive motion from your game (no matter how subtle), is the process of subtraction that results in instant measurable improvement to both power and precision. Discovering your personal "mechanics of instinct" is the only path to trust in thyself which leads to everyday performance at full potential . Your next breakthrough is a simple process that will happen at mach speed because genius does indeed lie in simplicity. Coaches are born and it is time to put forty years of coaching experience and a unique lens for viewing human motion to work for you! Your ultimate potential can only be realized when the body and brain are on the same page and your body feels instinctively safe enough to focus on precision and finesse.
The brain science of the past fifteen years clearly shows that getting it together "mentally" involves a physical road map. There is no "mental game", there is no "muscle memory", and "work on that new move until you groove it" is just plain BS. You have one body and one brain. You don't remember it, but they worked quite well as you learned to walk. Instinctive movement is simply normal movement that your body trusts as "safe" and it is the only path to the accuracy and consistency you seek. Machinelike precision and everyday consistency can only follow instinctive balance, rhythm, and spine safety.
The non-conscious instincts, that regulate human movement for body safety, must be cooperated with as you build your game. The all time greats built their games with instinctive motion, and so should you. Instinctive motion is body friendly, eliminates the source of "mental game" issues because it keeps the body and brain on the same page, and is as maintenance free as walking. The neuroscience for perception and movement, has in the past 15 years surpassed all prior knowledge by many times over. It explains why no two swings in the hall of fame are exactly alike and condemns "chasing the perfect swing" as a source of static between the body and brain. It also explains why cooperating with the instincts that regulate balance and spine safety is the key to being a mental giant during competition, and paints today's reactionary "mental game" processes spawned in the 70's as quite incomplete. Einstein once said, "You cannot solve a problem on the level on which it was created", and the new path to the improvement you seek is simply to eliminate any non instinctive motion from your game. Your ultimate potential can only be realized when your body and brain are on the same page and your body feels instinctively safe enough to focus on precision and finesse.
Mechanics of Instinct
"True, there is not one swing for everybody. But there is one and only one unique swing for each individual; it is the swing that makes the body feel safe enough to focus on precision and finesse. The path to more precision is the same path to pain free."
Instinctive Movement Coach
Recent brain science condemns the puppeteering of a perceived "perfect swing" and provides revolutionary clues to getting the body and brain on the same page during individual competition. Instinctive motion is simply normal motion the body views as "safe". Discovering your instinctively "safe" motion is the only path to the improvement you seek, because machinelike precision and everyday consistency can only follow instinctive balance, rhythm, and spine safety. Puppeteering a perceived "perfect swing" produces a high maintenance motion, and static between the body and brain. Your best results occur during practice and trust in thyself during competition is an impossible venture. Einstein once said, "Everything should be made as simple as possible but no simpler", and I have done my best with what is no simple subject. I hope my website inspires you to give me a call because the mysterious issues that are keeping you from the excellence you seek are no longer a mystery to me. You have one body and one brain and a deeper understanding of both is my promise to you.
