Automatic TRANSCRIPT

What got you interested in. The blend of cognitive development with physical development are basically combining these elements. We see in games without of training and everything that goes without with a mind body physical perspective. It started with rugby. Actually when i was transitioning from college. Football to rugby is awfully a huge difference in skill sets perception action for its catching keeping your eyes ahead of you and then passing. It really forced me to build that ability to scan the field. I didn't have that.

And then at that same time when i was finishing up rugby deciding whether to go professional or not i was working with these kids like the same that we we have now but three years four years prior. And and that's i started implementing things went based on feedback from parents that there is a disconnect between speed training performance trendy to the actual game.
