Overview

Total MindBody Training is a complete guide to using the power of your mind to enhance your martial arts practice. Dr. Jordan takes you step by step through the correct methods for meditation, visualization and other methods of mental practice, explaining the scientific reasoning behind these traditional practices.

Written in an easy to follow format, it breaks the road to peak performance into five steps: developing goals, tuning in to your body rhythm, attaining focus in training, using visualization to improve performance and attaining the peak performance state. You will learn to relax during movement and breathe most efficiently, to visualize performances and create routines that call upon the peak performance state at will.

Dr. Jordan presents a revolutionary approach to accelerated peak performance training. Drawing on research breakthroughs in psychology, neurology, physiology and athletics, he gives you the tools to unlock your potential.
