Elite Golf Strength training gives a serious advantage to ANY golfer that chooses to get sweaty, nasty and pay the price to get their bodies and minds to function like an athlete should. Golfers movements should include bending, twisting, coordinating, stabilizing and torquing. We use a revised blend of Kettlebells, Tai Chi, QiGong, Yoga ect to get players unlock their true athletic golf potential. If it does not improve golf performance or mental performance it will not be in our program...

 


Joint Flexibility Or Chi Blocks

The main causes of morning stiffness are lack of daily physical activity, being overweight, poor diet, not sleeping properly, and a cold or damp environment, according to the Healthy Back Institute. Blood circulation and stretching in the morning helps improve the range of motion in the joints, as well as stiffness that often accompanies being inactive or overweight. Decreased flexibility in the joints may increase your likelihood of developing arthritis or having poor balance, which could result in injury especially with movements that deal with rotation, such as Golf.
Blood in your body should flow smoothly like water in a river or stream,it should not be stale like a pond. The blood in our body is designed to be moved in many ways so that our body and minds become more durable, alive and healthy.

"The Stronger you make yourself physically, mentally and spiritually the harder you make yourself to beat"
Matt Christian

  "I have been playing golf for over 30 years, in that time I have had instruction from several highly regarded teaching professionals, Matt fits well among this list. I think what really sets him apart is the full understanding of all the aspects necessary to perform at the peak levels. It is challenging as a player to find expertise in the swing, body and mind as Matt and Elite Golf Performance provides. I first visited Matt after developing sciatica in my leg, after just a few moments Matt was able to help me make some adjustments and I am happy to say I have not had a episode since, and I push it as hard as I can. IMO, you cannot find more value for your teaching dollar"

What is Chi?

Chi is energy. Energy blocks occur through the body that are due to mental tension, poor diet stress, anxiety, injuries, tightness, strength and balance limitations which all affect proper chi flow. Chi is like water which should flow naturally and smooth yet with power if needed. Although your muscles and joints can work like a dam if they are too stiff, weak or imbalanced which would not allow chi to flow through the body parts which would cause the body to move up and down and side to side without coordination. The Chi should flow smoothly with no blocks through the entire body. Chi is no myth, it can be aquired through proper understanding and training. If you don't believe in it then you've never felt or trained for it. Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Yoga are great for identifing and building your Chi. We revise these forms to save time, but also to make it specific for positive golf results.

Backswing
The sole purpose of the away swing is to setup a powerful forward swing. The backswing should only have aggressive contractions in the feet, glutes and the lower core muscles, while the arms and wrists are relaxed, yet still firm. The movement through the thoracic spine is extremely important while being able to control the pelvis. Correct movements through the core and into the hips will allow the golfer to store maximum torque in their backswing.

Forward Swing
The sole purpose of the forward swing is to coordinate the hips, shoulders, arms and club at any desired speed  possible while maintaining good core posture and automatic hands. Correct movements through the core on the downswing allow the golfer to release all the energy into and the ball through impact.



"The key to great ball striking is learning how to wait in transition and in a small part of the downswing in order for the POWER to build through impact. Be patient..."

Brief History of Chen Style Tai Chi

Chen Style Tai Chi is the earliest historically verifiable Tai Chi system in existence in China. It is commonly accepted that Tai Chi was developed in the village of Chenjiagou in Wenxian County, Henan Province, China. According to the Wenxian County Annals, Chen Wangting (1600-1680), a retired military officer and a ninth generation family member of the Chen Family, was credited with having originated Chen Style Tai Chi around 1644. Tai Chi theory is largely based on "The Book of Changes" along with concepts from the meridian theory of traditional Chinese medicine, as detailed in "The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Chinese Medicine". He combined some war field fighting knowledge into it. Influenced greatly by the Ji Xiao Xin Shu (New Book of Effective Techniques), a book on strategy; discipline; and collation of folk marital arts by a famous general, Qi Jiguang (1528-1487) of Shandong during the Ming Dynasty. Qi Jiguang preferred the necessity of rigorous physical fitness training and effective hand-to-hand tactics, and not accepting the superiority of brute strength alone as the determining factor in battle. Chen Wangting carried forward Qi’s essential theories, and created a new way in training called Tai Chi Quan. Chen Wangting was also credited with creating push hands drills, in which students practice "adhering" to each others movements to increase their sensitivity to their partners' intentions, which thereby function as a bridge between solo practice and free sparring.

Chen Changxing (1771-1853), a sixth generation Chen Tai Chi practitioner was famous as the first master teaching his family’s secrets to outsiders. Yang Style Tai Chi founder Yang Luchan (1800 -1873), was his best student. Yang developed his own form, a modified version of the Chen Chanxing's original long form - Liaojia Yilu.
