Free Flow Academy's Cross-Disciplinary Approach to Athletics

At Free Flow Academy we are bridging the gap between Western and Eastern Kinesiology. Western Kinesiology has made incredible advancements in technology and human performance, however the
ancient wisdom, knowledge, and traditional practice of Eastern Kinesiology continues to be the forefront of the development of the worlds most elite athletes. It is our belief that accessing the Science and Application of both hemispheres will prove to be a comprehensive and evolving approach to movement and skill development.
Free Flow Academy is creating and providing a true Cross-Disciplinary approach to athletics. Whether you want to specialize in a single skill or craft, or take the well-rounded approach, we will be able to serve your goals by structuring our Disciplines with the following guidelines:
1) Safe and Effective Cross Disciplinary training takes careful planning.
2) Some fundamentals of movement translate to other disciplines.
3) Statistically there are risk factors when engaging in any activity, so our approach is to minimize those risk factors by proposing that athletes and artists take a balanced approach to their training. We encourage the coaches and athletes to "Do the Math" so that we can avoid and eliminate any and all high risk factors.
4) We deconstruct the main learning components necessary to master the discipline.
5) We follow the 80/20 rule, whereas we extract 20% of the fundamental/defining skill sets that are responsible for attaining/achieving 80% of all other skill sets.
6) We create an order and process for each skill progression.
7) We create emotional leverage that motivate our students to achieve and progress.
8) We are able to compress our knowledge in an easy to understand "skill sheet" to provide useful, easy to understand, and valuable literature to progress our clients.
9) We set goals that measure the best duration and frequency for athletes to achieve their goals with consideration to their limits and lifestyle factors.
10) We create mental anchors for methodologies so that it is easy to remember and give our clients to store and process data in an efficient and useful manner.
