Grips to Sub: Stephen Koepfer
Grip to Sub; Stephen Koepfer
I love the format of these videos. This has got to be the most inovative way to video instruct that I've ever reviewed. Of course that does not really address the actual instruction of Master of Sport; Stephen Koepfer, but I will get to that in a bit. This video set up works like a map rather than an actual video where you have to keep going back to referencing the technique that was designed to set up the chain of events layed out before you. The strategies are layed out in a tree format allowing you to follow the path you are most inquisitive about.
As to the instruction Coach Stephen is brilliant, as usual. He is very anticipatory with his instruction and quick to point out some of the more common mistakes players can make. I recommend these group of videos for the above average player though. I took the time to allow my assistant coaches attempt to learn the instruction without guiding them to see how well they could follow the instruction. The result was about 50/50. Much of the leverages had to be fully explained, which is actually quite typical for most video instruction. On the other hand the strategies were easy to follow. You could see the students and coaches already starting to use the strategies in class, and for obvious reasons, the coaches caught on faster. As pointed out in the videos, when students failed to follow the advice given the throws and moves would tend to fail.
In my personal opinion these grip entries would be excellent for those looking to expand their throwing game; specifically getting players to enter the mindset of follow up after their throws. One of the interesting things I found with my students is there adapting of the grip entries to their current game. Even the way they entered grip while on the ground. On the down side I would not advise going any further than the initial entry strategies until these entries have become second nature. After that it opens up many possibilities and strategies that should work into most players games and expand from there.
