Sports Applications

AFL

There are 4 areas, which SFC focuses on, for AFL;

  1. High speed impact (both on the ground and in the air)
  2. Sensitivity training
  3. Injury recovery
  4. Natural movement
  5. Increasing sporting life

The main area of focus for AFL players with Sports Fitness Consultant is that of a high-speed impact, especially when airborne. An airborne position can leave the AFL player vulnerable to impact injuries, especially around the ribs and shoulder. The internal pressure created by the SFC system helps to protect the player from these injuries. This is much the same as a basketball; rubbery, resilient and resistant. As the training progresses, SFC’s methods set up the AFL player with a “cell’s memory” response which is connected to this internal pressure. This means that you will have a quicker response to cover you, both in correct, natural action and injury prevention. Just like trying to touch a fish in the water, the response is automatic and instantaneous. Your response to impact will be done through the subconscious mind. This cannot be trained by physical methods, and cannot be done with the thinking mind. If you look and think you’re already too late to protect yourself.

Through special programming, SFC can help the AFL player with injury recovery and natural movement. Our specialised 3-D movements help set up the body with a kinetic link, making it more organised and setting up muscles to move with a chain like affect. One muscle group fires, flowing to another muscle group, much the same as a snake. Your movements become more fluid and smooth.

Our training also increases blood circulation and oxygen capacity. SFC’s 3-D movements force blood through areas which contain many ligaments and tendons, helping to recover and heal all the joints in your body (especially, the spine, hip, knee and shoulder areas). These movements also help return the ligaments and tendons to their natural position. Moreover, increased blood circulation and oxygen capacity will also increase your sporting performance and your career length.

The methods we are talking about here are a means to increasing internal power, pressure, cell’s memory, sensitivity and healing. This culminates in bringing about an automatic response in the body that is powerful, natural and within a fraction of a second.

Rugby (Union & League)

There are 4 areas, which SFC focuses on, for Rugby;

  1. Internal pressure for explosive power (impact training)
  2. Injury recovery
  3. Natural movement
  4. Increasing sporting life

The main area for rugby which SFC deals with is that of internal pressure. Much like a basketball when it strikes the ground, SFC turns the rugby player into a pressurised “rubbery” ball. This means that when the player strikes his opponent, he can transfer his energy and power to them. SFC also deals with striking recovery. This is training the rugby player with 3-D spherical movements,combined with practices of internal pressure, which help the player to react instantly to a strike from another person. This instant reaction creates resilience in the player and allows him to absorb, or deflect, energy from his opponent.

The highest level of rugby training, by SFC methods, is one where the player, during less dynamic times of the match, resides in a state of relaxation and suppleness. However, when the player enters into contact with other players his body is strong and resilient and has the full capacity to deliver maximum energy transfer. This means economy of motion and greater stamina for less input.

SFC doesn’t teach or deal with rugby playing techniques, our main concern is passing on “natural movement” to players. This means actually physiologically changing a player so their body is more dynamically linked and has the ability to flow, be flexible, and supple.

In this regard, SFC only approaches highly trained professionals in the game of rugby. This is due to the fact that the knowledge being passed on is very deep and requires a level of maturity and life experience to connect to the amount, and depth, of information being divulged.

From a club perspective, SFC guarantees a lower rate of injury in its players is instruction is carefully and diligently followed. This translates quite simply to better attendance at a higher level of gameplay from club players. This is one of the goals of club management and coaches across Australia.

Soccer

There are 3 areas, which SFC focuses on for Soccer;

  1. Natural, 3D rubber body
  2. Decrease of injuries
  3. Feeling grounded (maintaining your ‘form’)

Undisputedly, soccer is one of the world’s largest games, and being in this position means that its high-level players are under a lot of pressure. When a player is under too much pressure they feel disconnected from their body and skills. SFC’s job is to reverse this process so that regardless of what is happening in a player’s life, whether it be family, relationships, financial or other hardships, their ball skills and technique remained consistent and at a level that is acceptable to the team, coach, club and to themself. Through increased blood circulation and oxygen in the body and mind, SFC can help to resolve these pressure issues that are experienced by professional soccer players worldwide.

SFC also recognises that more is being used by the body, than just the legs, in soccer. We start with mobilising the skeleton’s major joints including the spine, the hips, shoulders, and arms as well as soft and connective tissues. These movements also help the player to release the lower back and hips, which reunites the kinetic chain producing fluidity. Hours of soccer practice can tighten the lower back and hips which is very bad for performance and actually is contraindicated to power and movement.

We approach our training from an arts point of view; like playing the piano which is full of fluidity and feeling. Our mission is to give players “natural feel”. We want the player to move like a fish in the water. This means that their body is dynamically linked via three-dimensional movements and knows what it is doing, so their mind has confidence and trust. Soccer’s highest level is subconscious mind, where action takes place by itself without conscious thought.

Surfing

It goes without saying that surfers love surfing! Our mission is to infuse your passion with the water so there is no distinction. SFC’s approach to surfing is not from a purely physical point of view. Our job is to improve natural feel, instant explosive power which can be controlled at will, and a fully functioning, mobile and balanced body. SFC also deals with increasing body sensitivity so that you can adjust to the face of the wave, in a more natural state, with feeling and emotional content. We treat surfing as an art form, not too dissimilar to painting or creating a piece of music.

So at SFC our training will cover three areas;

  1. We want the surfer to become more grounded and happier. We want their energy channels to be open so the body is loose and moves and flows naturally. When the surfer reaches this higher level, they achieve what SFC calls “cell’s smile”. This is internal happiness devoid of external conditions. With this feeling comes trust and belief. SFC wants you to believe you can beat any wave. More importantly, we make you believe in yourself. This is especially important when it comes to competition surfing.
  2. We want the surfer to become more sensitive. This means that the body is now listening to its surroundings, becoming much more sensitive to the external world. This is what we term sensitivity through “cells memory”.
  3. Aerial and advanced wave manoeuvres are supercharged by instant internal explosive power. This can make the seemingly impossible, become possible. This is power that emanates from within the body, as all the body’s cells fire in synchronicity. Snap and spring power can assist in better control and a faster more powerful response, whether on the face or crest of a wave, especially for a sudden move to change direction. This power is not disconnected from the wave but utilises harmony and force to create an action which can put you in a better position for a trick or save you from a wipe out.
  4. Lastly, we want the surfer to have their body function returned to a more natural state. This means a return to mobility and self-healing. Over time most surfers will start to notice that their rear leg can become tight through the hip, whereas the front leg may be loose and weak. SFC’s job is to help the surfer become balanced by improving joint mobility, muscle and ligament tightness and/or weakness, especially through the shoulders and hips. As the training continues the surfer’s body is beginning to heal and can feel these changes coming on week by week. Once healing and mobility have occurred within the surfer, they will feel more comfortable, and confident, without the stress of injury and pain.

Tennis

Tennis is a mentally challenging sport that requires a strong mind. In tennis we teach four areas;

  1. serving power
  2. footwork
  3. coordination/your reaction to the ball
  4. mental grounding

SFC does not teach ball skills. Instead, SFC combines footwork with coordination, so your body moves together in a fluid, natural way. This is harmony and balance, the mind and body becoming one.

Most tennis players are unbalanced, simply because they favour one side of the body over the other. This means that one side has become weak and loose, and the other has become tight and strong. At SFC we work together with the tennis player to help them to balance their body again so that they have a return of balanced mobility and function. This means helping to release the tight side, and strengthening the weak side.

In regards to serving power, SFC achieves this through internal explosive power. This means that when you serve, the ball becomes like a bullet. Your power will become sharp and fast. The typical serving technique of tennis players will use the shoulder, hip, back and legs to generate power in a very physical method. The problem with this method is that inevitably the player starts to generate injuries and tightness. As time goes on, these injuries become easier to get because the method being used is very aggressive on the joints, soft tissue, ligaments and tendons. However at SFC our methods utilise internal power; what one may even call an “internal engine” to produce power. Once you have commenced training you will start to build an energy centre in the lower abdominal region. This is directly connected to the use of the spine. So instead of going from the leg to the hip to the shoulder to serve you will actually start to generate power from the lower abdomen. This power travels from the abdomen, up through the spine, out through the shoulder, down the wrist, transferring power through the racket. As the ball connects with the racket, instant power is produced.

The three-dimensional actions of SFC start to change the player’s physiology so that their body becomes more “rubber like”. In the short term, this means that the player can produce more fluid, instant power. It also means that the body is starting to set up “cell’s memory”. This is an automatic and natural response to your game using subconscious mind. You ‘feel’ when you play, as opposed to constantly thinking for body to move. “Rubber body” also means that the player receives fewer injuries because the body is loose and relaxed. It knows how to economise tension and relaxation, instead of being under constant stress. In the long term this means that the player has a longer sporting career with fewer injuries.

SFC also tackles the somewhat difficult problem of mental grounding. It is a well-known fact that tennis players are under a lot of pressure which can directly affect their game. If a player has the potential to become too hot-headed, or feel too much pressure from playing a match, then the potential to make a grave mistake or even lose the match becomes much more likely. We teach players how to calm down, feel peaceful and mentally grounded. When a player has this mind, the potential for a positive outcome becomes more likely. One could even look at this as a battlefield type of mind.

Golf

With golf being gentle and solo, SFC deals with golf in 3 areas;

  1. Mental grounding and “quiet” confidence
  2. Powering the golf swing
  3. Body/mind unification and “black hole” concentration

Competition golf can be very demanding. This is why mental grounding and confidence are of the utmost importance to a golfer in these circumstances. That is why SFC teaches these two points, in focus, to professional golfers. Through the training, a player can feel an actual difference within them, physiologically and psychologically, as they go further and further with the system. The body becomes more relaxed, and looser, when this occurs the mind follows. The player will also start to feel more humble and happy. This is not an over the top feeling of happiness but more of a quiet happiness. So instead of being like a dog running around wagging its tail, you’re more like a gigantic ocean wave; peaceful and humble with a far greater potential.

SFC’s unique methods of generating power can be utilised by a golf player to increase the explosiveness of their swing. Our methods develop an internal engine that connects the body together, not just at a physical level, but at a cellular level. Then, by utilising this engine, the player will start to notice that they are more kinetically linked and power runs through their body smoothly. They will also notice that their tension is releasing, their body has a ‘rubber’ feeling and function and mobility are returned. They will also have the ability to transfer power from the ground (under their feet) to the ball, so when the ball is struck it is more like a bullet going off, as opposed to an axe swing. SFC’s method is a unique three-dimensional method that cannot be found with any other training system.

Body/mind unification is especially important, especially as the player gets closer to a hole. The closer one gets, the higher the tension feels. This is why breathing, the mind, and the body need to become one at this point. This will reduce nervousness and internal dialogue of the player. The body moving automatically, without tension, by ‘cell’s memory’ provides a much more likely opportunity for success. This unification of the mind and body also provides sensitivity at the golf tee. This sensitivity should already be felt by the professional golfer, however sometimes external conditions can cause the professional to lose this sensitivity. For example relationship breakdowns, financial problems or any or any kind of personal problem, these can all affect your game. By training with SFC in body/mind unification techniques, the professional golfer has more tools to provide themselves with more stability on the golf course. By being more stable you will retain your club-to-ball sensitivity.

Body/mind unification also incorporates what SFC terms “black hole” concentration. This is the ability to cut out external noise and stimuli through focus. This allows the player to move in a meditative way, increasing the chances of success.

Another part of black hole concentration is the ability to control the heart rate and the cells of the body through breathing. What we mean by this is that we can slow down the body’s heart rate and cell function, so that you remain cool under pressure. This is also the same as a monk who meditating at a very high level. This type of training is especially good for those who suffer from a hot temper, or anxiety. This allows the golfer to find a ‘personal’ cold place. It’s a place where they can find themself, giving a deep sense of self-reliance. SFC believes that this knowing of the self is innate in all of us when we are born, but as we develop and mature we lose this sense. At SFC we help the golfer to reach this place again.

Lastly, SFC recognises that golf can be a physically one-sided game. What we mean here is that typically the right-handed golfer will always use the left hand to steer, and the right hand for power, this is also the same for the legs. Typically in a one-sided sport the power side will hold tension and will be tight, as opposed to the steering or corrective side which will be loose and slightly weaker. SFC helps to rebalance the body, as it is a complete system of training that doesn’t favour either side. We will help you to release the tension in your power side (which under this condition is probably carrying an injury) and then help to increase strength and function in your weaker side.

Fencing

At SFC we focus on five areas for fencing;

    1. focus
    2. unification of the foil/epee and the body
    3. sensitivity with the foil/epee
    4. body balancing
    5. natural flexibility

At SFC when we talk about focus here we are talking about pre-bout focus, as well as focus during the bout. Our objective is to help the professional fencer reduce their performance worries, and anxieties,as well as reduce external worries that the fencer may be feeling before the match. For example; family andpersonal relationships, financial problems and other such day-to-day worries can directly affect a fencer’s performance under competition pressure. SFC specialises in teaching ‘moving meditation’ through breathing which helps the fencer to feel calm, grounded and peaceful regardless of the situation.

Unification of the foil/epee, and the body, requires reflex link between the legs, the body, the arms, the foil/epee and the instant mind. This means all the cells in your body are all set to the same position, whereby they are responding in synchronicity with autonomy, to the external world.

This also includes sensitivity with the foil/epee. So what do we mean here by sensitivity? It is an automatic response from the nervous system, without conscious thought, to outside stimuli. Outside stimuli here being your opponent’s foil/epee. As soon as they touch you, you can respond automatically. Sensitive response means you have superior response to the movement of their foil, and the movement of their body. Hence, you are in a better position to overcome the opponent. As soon as the opponents foil touches yours, you will respond autonomically in the correct way because you have a natural sensitive feeling to force, direction and movement. This is like a stream of water running downhill, cutting its way through the terrain naturally finding its own path to the bottom. At a professional level there is no time to think when striking back, after being struck against. SFC specialises in setting up professionals with this autonomic ‘cell’s memory’ response.

SFC also specialises in body balancing. A more common problem with professional fencing at is a tightness and soreness in the leading leg of the fencer especially around the knee joint. SFC specialises in relaxing and loosening the tension in the ligaments and tendons around the knee joint, as well is the ankle and hip. We also focus on relaxing and loosening the leading arm/shoulder of the professional fencer which, like the leading leg, tends to suffer from tightness and soreness from overuse. We feel our job of returning balance to the fencer’s legs, and body, is a top priority and to be done as soon as possible. By increasing blood circulation and helping to balance the body’s ligaments and tendons, SFC helps the fencer’s body recover and start a natural help healing process. It is very important that the body is in a comfortable, natural, relaxed state for training and for competition purposes.

SFC’s method of three-dimensional movement focuses on our ‘Eight Star’ method. This means the ankle, knee, hip, lower back, shoulder, elbow, wrist and neck are all being trained to work cohesively and as a complete system. By working all of these joints, mapping them on a 3D sphere, we bring about a life feeling to the human body. This is the complete opposite of a typical linear training method such as in a static yoga posture, a simple power lift, even a complex compound movement. SFC teaches movement as an art. This is not isolationist or reductionist. Instead it is cohesive, intuitive and completely natural.

Cricket

For cricket we teach 3 areas;

      1. Body balancing (esp. for bowlers)
      2. Reflex mind for action
      3. Instant explosive power

At SFC we understand that cricket is generally a physically one-sided sport. By this we mean that one side is favoured as a power side. This means that only one side of the cricketer’s body is being used physically and with tension. We teach the cricketer, at a cellular level, how to release the tension in the power side and bring the body back into balance. By training the body at a cellular level, the cricketer will have a faster recovery time if they are injured; know when to become tense for action, and when to relax on non-action. All of this equates for a longer sporting life.

The actions we teach at SFC are based on a three-dimensional ball, meaning that all the body’s ligaments, tendons and joints are being moved in a complete range of motion helping the skeleton, soft tissues, muscles, ligaments and tendons to come back to a natural position. Coupled with breathing and movements that are similar to a ‘moving meditation’ we can bring the cricketer’s body into a ‘rubber like’ state. This will make the cricketer faster than before. For example, for bowling there is a lot of muscular and tendons stress in the bowling action. There is also a lot of skeletal stress. This is because the bowler is using a physical method to produce power i.e. he is only using his muscles. At SFC we give tuition on using the power mind of the abdominal region. This helps to transfer power from the ground, through the legs to the power centre, then into the shoulder, the arm, hand and then into the ball. All of this is very smooth and completely natural. The body is soft and only relying on tension when tension is needed.

All of this is not to say that a professional cricketer doesn’t already have a high level of skill, what we aim to do at SFC is to take any bumps or kinks out of the actions of players and help them become smooth, natural and recover from injuries so they have a longer sporting life. We specialise in creating packages for players and teams. Individually we can tailor a package for a player to help him or her achieve their training goals. Alternatively, we can tailor a package for a team to help the team achieve their goals.

Let us finish on reflex mind for action. Here we are talking about setting up the body so that the thinking mind, which resides in the skull, has an electrical vessel connection with the body/power mind which resides in the abdominal region. SFC has intimate knowledge on how to create this electrical connection. This means we can remove thought processes from action, so that the player doesn’t have to think before moving. All actions happen naturally in a reflexive way. We term this ‘instant flash catch’, whereby the body reacts to a sudden action without thought, much like the flash of a blinking eye. We teach you to catch the blink. Reflex mind is also reliant on setting up the body cells with what we call the ‘cell’s memory’. As the cricketer trains from day to day in the SFC methods, they start to set up this cellular memory which eventually goes deep enough into the human body so as to affect the player’s DNA and cell membrane. Once we are at this level, the player will feel a physiological and psychological change in their body; from here they are set-up for reflex mind.

Instant explosive power is generated from the action mind which is found in the abdominal region of the body. It is also reliant on blood circulation and blood flow. Once the connection has been made with the action mind, and blood circulation is flowing correctly, then the player can generate instant explosive power.This power is not generated through physical methods. Instead, the body must be in a natural state, using a flow that is smooth and fluid. Think of a small boat on a river flowing naturally with the current. Even with something as simple as a car driving forwards, you wouldn’t suddenly put the car into reverse to turn around! Instead you would turn the steering wheel and smoothly hook the car around. This is the ideology behind SFC’s training methods. Instant explosive power is the body’s chemistry, at a cellular level, all firing in synchronicity. It is sudden and with a shock, like two cars colliding. Outside, the cars have suddenly stopped accelerating; however inside the car the people are still accelerating forwards. We know this as inertia. This ”inertia” is the type of power we are talking about. Attaining this type of explosive power does not take long, especially with consistent training. The player and coach should see a result within three months.

This method is also reliant on the relationship between relaxation and tension. When power is generated you are tense, when you are not generating power, you are relaxed. This is why under SFC’s training and methods your sporting career will be much longer and much healthier. Simply because you are not continually damaging or stressing joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons.

Swimming

With regards to swimming there are 3 areas SFC deals with;

      1. Improving arm/leg unification for power, speed and breathing economy
      2. Recovery of shoulder, neck, arm, back, knee and leg tightness and soreness (self-healing)
      3. Instant explosive power for leaving the block (esp. short distance racing)
      4. Mental grounding before important swim meets/international competition

Improving arm and leg unification for power and speed, for SFC, is based around linked, three-dimensional movement. The unification is not just physical but actually takes place at a cellular level. This is what SFC calls ‘cell’s memory’. All the body’s cells are working together, like a snake or a fish, the mind is in a meditative state, calm and grounded, with your movement being subconscious; without thinking. In other words, your body is operating by itself. Our training also focuses on improving breathing economy. We focus on breathing into the action brain, located in the abdomen. As ‘cell’s memory’ takes over movement, the swimmer breathes naturally into the action brain allowing movement to unfold autonomically. Moreover, within this ‘cell’s memory’ lays the secret to body sensitivity in the water, or what some swimmers would term ‘feel for the water’. Although ‘feel for the water’ can appear mysterious or elusive to some swimmers, it is possible to teach this method. This is because the water has positive and negative ions along with human body. Our training can help the swimmer to achieve alignment between the ions in the water and the swimmer’s body. The swimmer naturally feels the water and reacts to movements within it. These actions, in response to the water’s movement, are natural and correct because they are flowing from the subconscious mind.

Recovery of the body from tightness and soreness, in the view of SFC, relies on three circulations in the human body;

      1. blood circulation
      2. nervous system/mental circulation
      3. digestive circulation
          Recovery from tightness, and soreness, for most professional athletes, means relying on external sources. Methods such as massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, etc. are all valued remedial techniques but are dependent on increasing and improving circulation externally. However, the creation of circulation internally is a much superior and higher form of self-healing, within our system.

The abilities of self-healing are listed below;

          1. The knowledge to improve the body’s three circulations through mind focus
          2. Having the correct movements to self-release an area of pain or discomfort

These can only be viewed as tools of the utmost importance to the professional athlete. With this knowledge the professional athlete is much more likely to enjoy their training as their injury tally and nagging pains start to subside, slowly disappearing. So instead of feeling forced into training, and pushing through injury and pain, the professional can hit the water feeling more comfortable and confident with their actions, knowing that they’re not aggravating something or making the problem worse. SFC’s patented three dimensional movements, also help the body to return itself back to its natural position. Ligaments and tendons find their way back to position, while muscles become longer, and rubber like.

Instant explosive power is the body’s chemistry, at a cellular level, all firing in synchronicity. This is very much like a bomb going off, or like a powerful sneeze; going from complete relaxation to sudden tension in an extremely short time. In Chinese terminology, this power is called Fa-jing. This means “action without preparation” and is a very high level display of the human body in complete harmony and balance with itself. Preparation here means observing an external condition and then getting ready to respond. The fa-jing tension point is explosive power that comes from you internally and is stored in the abdomen for use at such time. Although western science is yet to understand this innate power in all of us, the methods and techniques taught by SFC have been used in the East for five thousand years.

This instant power is especially useful at the blocks because of the fine line between first and second place. This time can be very, very short so by picking up time at the blocks can mean the difference between winning and losing. This explosive power is not only about cellular chemistry, it is also working in conjunction with breathing. Once again this style of training improves the body’s breathing economy, so that when you are swimming in the water you will require to breathe less often, instead, utilising the oxygen you have taken in, in a more thorough way.

Mental grounding before an important competition can be one of the largest challenges faced by professional athletes. We believe that overcoming fear, anxiety and pre-game nerves is a matter of covering two areas; circulation and oxygen. By improving blood circulation, especially to the brain, more oxygen can be delivered to this vital organ. Why is this important? It’s quite basic; oxygen supports clear brain function. Every time you take a breath, over 50% of the oxygen you take in is used up simply in brain function! So for us if someone has a hot temper this simply means not enough oxygen is reaching the brain and function has been impeded leading to the person not thinking clearly.

Through our training, we combine breathing techniques with three-dimensional movements that improve blood circulation and oxygen flow through the body. Moreover, as the athlete’s training compounds they will start to understand that our system is ‘moving meditation’. As circulation is improved, along with oxygen economy, the body’s cells start to work more efficiently thereby economising resources. This means your cells are functioning at a slower rate making it much easier for the swimmer to calm down. Through the training you will also gain greater control over your body at a cellular level, which will allow you to focus on an area inside yourself if you need to. We help your body find balance of the internal organs, especially between the liver and kidneys and the heart and lungs. This balance is an automatic response from correct training. As the training progresses, the mind can focus on its goal much more easily, ignoring outside noises and pressure. This focus is a laser-like mentality with the body in a relaxed and natural state and tension at a minimum.

Snowboarding

SFC focuses on 3 areas for snowboarding;

          1. 3D flexibility for movement
          2. Body balancing for less injuries
          3. Explosive power for aerial tricks

3-D flexibility for movements is very important because it returns natural movement, and feel, back to the body. It is also integral to balancing the body, initiating self-healing and fewer injuries in play. Having a more flexible/rubbery body greatly reduces the chance of injury from an impact or fall. Typically a snowboarder will have a power side which is strong and tight, and a steering side which tends to be weaker and loose. The job at a SFC is to balance the body so that the left feels like the right and vice versa. This 50-50 balancing of the body is important for turning the board from left to right and performing tricks from either side without bias. Our system is designed to make you feel more natural, and comfortable, whilst piloting your board. It will allow you to find your centre-point much more easily. This centre-point is heavy, and can be physically felt within the abdominal region of the body.

Explosive power for aerial tricks is the body’s internal energy exploding out in synchronicity during a trick. This exploding out of energy, in Chinese terminology, is known as fa-jing and is our area of expertise. Our fa-jing is not linear in nature, instead is like a three-dimensional spiral which is why it is so effective in the air. As your power develops, we help insert this fa-jing power into your aerials. Fa-jing power can also be put into general snowboarding, including the split-second before going into a trick (especially if feeling the need for extra power). This Fa-jing power is not separate, or cut off, from any other movement. In fact it is blended into the boarder’s movements and is natural in its production. This keeps all the movement’s smooth and flowing, like a brush flowing across a canvas. In the air, fa-jing can be used for twisting, spinning, and flipping. The fact that the boarder has already received instruction in three-dimensional movement in the SFC system means that their body has been prepared to utilise 3-D Fa-jing at any angle. Without this preparatory instruction, fa-jing can damage the body, as ligaments and tendons are not ready to receive it. Your ligaments and tendons must be in a position of complete trust, and the body unified and kinetically linked. Training for cells memory and fa-jing power, the professional snowboarder can expect to see a result within 6 to 12 weeks, depending on your body responses, level of understanding and dedication to training.
