He teaches the Martial Arts of Basketball, which helps players become ‘machine-like’ (in efficiency) across their entire skill set. It’s a unique opportunity for players of any level to move forward physically, technically, intellectually, and emotionally. He employs the Verification Model: Information, Demonstration, Explanation, and Confirmation to administer. Skill development is broken down to the ‘nth degree’ for players of all ages to attach or program effectively. Programming helps players to understand the relationship to new information and how to manage those forces to maximize growth and development.
