Kendal Yonomoto is the author of “The Athletic Fundamentals of Golf”, which describes a new paradigm is sports training. It is a physics based set of 8 Athletic Movement Principles that he has uses to coach golf technique.

Current projects involve the coaching of athletes, coaches, professionals and business people to think critically and problem solve using the 8 Athletic Movement Principles as a foundation for understanding their chosen sport and applying the ability to think critically and creatively to all aspects of their lives.
A player and a coach, Kendal’s lowest competitive round is a course record 62 (-10) and he is a former member of the Canadian Professional Golf Tour and current Canadian PGA, Class “A” Teaching Professional.
Steve Lewis is a British pole vaulter. His personal best jump of 5.82 meters, set in July 2012, is the British record for the event. Indoors his best is 5.77m, achieved in Dessau on 2 March 2012.
Steve represented Great Britain at the 2008 Summer Olympics and the 2012 Summer Olympics and is a three-time medalist at the Commonwealth Games.
He has participated at the World Championships in Athletics on five occasions (2007, 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2015).

What is a Movement Coach?
A Movement Coach is a specialist that empowers athletes to improve performance in their chosen sport by improving their ability to move and to problem solve - critically think - in game situations as well as practice.
Performance in sport is influenced by many factors, skill is a large factor, so is confidence. Here are two examples of strategies we may use as Movement Coaches depending on the experience, skill and competitive age of the athlete:
Movement Strategy #1
We take what you have and empower your to make it better, a good example is a pro golfer or baseball player. We won’t mess with their swings, but by ensuring that their fundamental movement is inline with the 8 Athletic Movement Principles we coach athletes to make them selves better - without losing ownership of their swings.
Movement Strategy #2
You are a new athlete to a sport. We coach you on movement and the ability to think critically within the 8 Athletic Movement Principles to augment your skill learning and problem solving. We build the athletic, cognitive, strategic and tactical skill base either before or during your initial phases of skill acquisition and competition.
What are the benefits of a Movement Coach?
We help you develop the ability to get the job done.
Sick injured, different venue, different country, different time zone different culture - athletic ability and the ability to problem solve contributes greatly to your ability to complete a task. And these abilities enhance your ability to persevere and perform - to stick to a directive - self, coach or team imposed.
We facilitate communication across disciplines.
S and C, Skill, Administration, Athletes, using a simple vernacular we are able to help all part of your organization understand the sport by creating a context based on two things - movement and critical thought.
We reduce the pressure and anxiety of skill development, maintenance and trouble shooting.
As we break movements down into components based on physics principles we can see that for a right handed swinger of a golf club, a ball that travels right curving right is the product of a movement fault - a high center of gravity lateral drift. The movement tendency is the main driver of the poor technique at a global level. The fundamentals: the grip, posture, alignment, ball position, all static factors, may be sound, but the overall movement may be poor. Instead of making athletes self conscious about their technique or even worse - taking away what makes them special - we focus on improving the fundamentals of movement, controlling the club on Midline, maintaining Physical Advantage thought the movement.
