The difference in our thinking is exemplified by our understanding of The Definition of the word CORE.
The CORE of the human body in our understanding IS the MIND!
NOT the midsection!
"The definition of “CORE” is:
“A central and often foundational part, usually distinct from the enveloping part by a difference in nature”.
And "The MOST IMPORTANT or most basic part of something"
In the case of the human being…our MIND is the aforementioned. Without it, we are an immobile skin bag of various tissues and bones. What most in the "fitness industry" call "core" is the midsection! It has no more importance than its connecting parts… "TRAIN IT ALL!" Especially the matter that matters most- Grey matter.

Empty your cup
The Nippon master Nan-in gave audience to a professor of philosophy. Serving tea, Nan-in filled his visitor's cup, and kept pouring: "Stop! The cup is over full, no more will go in." Nan-in said: "Like this cup, you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen (the "WAY") unless you first empty your cup?"
Nan-in, a Nippon master during the Meiji era (1868-1912)
"You have come to an even more dangerous person than Nan-in, because an empty cup won't do: the cup has to be broken completely. Even empty, if you are there, then you are full. Even emptiness fills you. If you feel that you are empty you are not empty at all, you are there. Only the name has changed: now you call yourself emptiness. The cup won't do at all: it has to be broken completely. Only when you are not, is there no need really to pour the tea into you. When you are not, the whole existence begins pouring; the whole existence becomes a shower from every dimension, from every direction. When you are not, the divine is..." (And the "WAY" is revealed)
• Speed – Running mechanics and agility training (speed "CAN" be taught!)

The "WAY" training philosophy was designed from over 30 years of hands-on, practical experience. We take an approach developed from these many years of trial and error to prevent our clients from making mistakes which inevitably leads to injuries. We know what works, and more importantly, we know what doesn’t. This allowing us to deliver consistency in growth/development in performance and most importantly health.
