Simplifying Command.

The way your body works.Your brain listens to your movements.While you move, to make sure your body stays upright and balanced, your brain constantly sends instructions back to your body.At the same time, your brain orchestrates micro-adjustments that’ll smoothly transition you from one movement to the next.When you combine every adjustment your brain makes, the likelihood…See More

Gravitate toward command.

Gravity is the elephant in the room.Baseball treats gravity as something that applies to everything except pitching, when, in fact, it’s gravity that rules your pitching motion.The way your body works.Your body is driven to equalize gravity.Since you’re born with the ability equalize gravity, reacting to the impact gravity has on your body is something that happens, not…See More

Command is a hardwired reaction.

Self-Coaching.To completely bridge the gap between your best and worst outings, you need to become your own best Coach. With an understanding into gravity’s impact on your command, self-coaching becomes that much easier.The way your body works.Your body is hardwired to evenly distribute your weight around your body.When an action creates a gravitational force on one side,…See More

"Kip, Before I answer and so we're on the same page, your body wants to keep your hips (lower body) and shoulders (upper body) aligned. With this in mind and as long as you end your front leg lift with your weight centered in front of your back…"

Pitch command comes from opening your front shoulder.

How your body works.Your hips and shoulders want to stay over one another.With both feet on the ground, you’re able to twist your hips and your shoulders will follow.When perched on one leg, without resistance the ground, it’s physically impossible to rotate just your hips.The flawless command you want.The ability to start your delivery by opening your front shoulder begins with you ending your front leg lift with your weight centered just in front of your back foot.Your lower body is driven to…See More

More About Me:
Our domination instruction IS the ONLY pitching instruction you'll ever need!

You're undoubtedly proud, and should be, of your pitching accomplishments.

At the same time, you have some lingering concerns whether your current skills will hold up at the next level.

In today’s increasingly competitive baseball climate, to move up the baseball ladder, you need to be more dominant than the next guy.

As a Pitcher, you need to use pinpoint location, later ball movement and a deceptive Arm action to make all onlookers believe you'll be able to immediately be competitive at your next level.

In as little as 1/2 hour, we guarantee* to give any Scout seeing you pitch all the evidence they need to know you possess superior pitching skills.

Your front leg lift predicts command.

Posted on November 14, 2018 at 10:49am 0 Comments

The way your body works.

  • You have complete control over where you place your feet.
  • When you lift your front foot off the ground, your body interprets your new state of balance.
  • As a result, your body either places your weight over or in front of your back foot.

Dynamic command.
