The awareness game

Tennis is awareness. This study of technical, strategical, tactical, physical and mental awareness, as
well as that of a person’s own personality, is the common theme of each chapter of this book and in every approach I take to coaching.
Tennis exposes strengths and weaknesses. It is an equalizer, putting everyone on equal footing. On the court, there is no one you can ask for help.
There is only you, your abilities and your experience in an unpredictable situation, where the only certainty is the awareness forged by experience.
I took my inspiration from the Spanish Method of Luis Bruguera for who needs certainties and solid points, to the development of stances and podalic proprioceptivity of S. Sosa and A. Musulin, fundamental for a solid technique. Visual training analysis by postural and behavioral optometrist is
the starting point to search motorial awareness. Chapters about psychomotor development analyze motor literacy building in which you can grasp that you can’t omit any letter. Criticalities in losses of balance accustom to adapt yourself to any situation E. Meyer affirms. American methodology by G. Jaramillo suggests the monothematic approach to automate learning.
My work is also founded on my studies in Sport Science, following in-depth study and then, more importantly, on testing – first on myself and then on thousands of athletes that have truly brought “The game of awareness” to life.

    Preparedness takes action! Learn more about hazards which can affect your community and ways you can take action to prepare and participate: 
    Earthquakes can occur suddenly and be deadly. Most earthquake-related casualties result from collapsing walls, flying glass, and falling objects. 
    Flooding is the most common natural disaster in the United States and can happen anywhere. Hurricanes have the power to cause widespread devastation, and can affect both coastal and inland areas. 
    Tornadoes are one of nature's most violent storms, and can cause death, injury, and destruction within seconds. 
    Wildfires can occur anywhere and can destroy homes, businesses, infrastructure, natural resources, and agriculture. 
    Winter storms can occur anywhere and bring freezing rain, ice, snow, high winds or a combination of all these conditions. They can cause power outages that last for days or weeks; making it hard to keep warm and making travel very dangerous. 
    Recent national tragedies remind us that the risk is real: an active shooter incident can happen in any place at any time. The best way to make sure you and your loved ones stay safe is to prepare ahead of time.

    "Oh, the game was very different in my day from what it's like today.  I don't mean just that the fences were further back and the ball was deader and things like that.  I mean it was more fun to play ball then."—Davy Jones 
    First published in 1966, The Glory of Their Times is a universally hailed classic. It's a delightfully evocative work full of fascinating characters and wonderful anecdotes about immortals like Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, and many others.  
    This is also the story of author Lawrence S. Ritter's six year quest to find the heroes of a bygone era.  He interviewed more than two dozen players from the turn of the century and the decades shortly thereafter, including many now in the Baseball Hall of Fame, then let them tell their own stories, in their own words.  The scorecard includes Rube Marquard, Chief Meyers, Goose Goslin, Smoky Joe Wood, Wahoo Sam Crawford, and many more.  This new audio compilation of the original interviews is great news for baseball fans and anyone who loves old-time tales of America's national pastime.

    “One of the most open and honest and thought-provoking books on the effect addiction and alcohol can have on the career and life of a county cricketer.” —Deep Extra Cover 
    The truth is that professional sports are a breeding ground for addictive behavior. 
    Luke Sutton is a business owner and successful agent to sporting stars such as James Taylor, Nile Wilson and Sam Quek, but his life didn’t always look so positive. 
    Back from the Edge reveals the huge ups and major downs that a professional career in sports can bring—and the mental health difficulties that can plague a sportsperson along the way. Luke knows this more than most. Brutally, but refreshingly honest, this no-frills autobiography of the former professional cricketer describes in detail the moment he hit rock bottom, how he got there, his roller coaster journey through rehab, and the important lessons he’s learned since. 
    Throughout the book, Luke remains candid and reveals how his addictions affected his personal life, from his friends to family to his children. Back from the Edge is heart-wrenching. It’s also thoroughly genuine, funny and utterly inspirational, and has allowed the former cricketer to speak about his mental health and to raise awareness of addiction in sports. Now a sports agent, he is perfectly placed to spot the warning signs in young stars, and to support them before they spiral into the same type of experiences he faced. 
    “A raw account of his alcoholism and the process of rebuilding his life.” —The Telegraph 
    “One of the most honest cricket books ever written.” —ESPNcricinfo

The first Olympics were held in 776 BCE and continued to be played every four years for nearly 1200 years.
