Gain and keen understanding of how mass and momentum play a huge role in change of direction mechanics. Discover how biomechanics, laws of motion, and motor learning allow a mastery of understanding and teaching multi-directional speed from a scientific standpoint, and how using these three areas to drive the assessment process when identifying functional patterns.
