“The lion who overcomes the enemy is a minor hero compared to the lion who overcomes himself.” Rumi
For both an individual athlete and an entire sport team, success is determined not only by the level
of their athletic skills, but also by a number of psychological factors.
The big mistake many coaches and athletes make
is that they focus entirely on the physical, technical and tactical training, leaving out another crucial element of any performance, “The Inner Game”, suggested by Timothy Gallwey.
As opposed to the outer game, which takes place
in an external arena, “The Inner Game” takes
place in the mind of the athlete and aims at overcoming fear, anxiety, self-doubt, problems
of concentration and lack of self-confidence.
One’s achievements in any field of sport can only go as far as their athletic skills AND their psychological skills, that is to say, their level of Mastery over “The Inner Game”.
The elite athletes and the highest performing
sport teams of all times (even those in ancient civilizations) have leveraged on the significance
of “The Inner Game” (the concept is relatively
new, though) by developing unshakable
character, building mental toughness and emotional strength in order to achieve
Mastery in their field.
In addition to constantly honing their physical
skills, athletes absolutely need to integrate
mental training tools into their practice in order
to maximize their potential and achieve their absolute best, meaning their Ideal Performance State.
There is a huge body of science-backed
knowledge (due to the extensive research in Neuroscience and Psychology), effective
techniques and practical tools that coaches and athletes are not at all aware of, yet those are absolutely critical to the success of athletes and sport teams.
Our mission in this regard is to cooperate with sports clubs, coaches and athletes and educate them on cutting-edge findings on Human Performance research, share with them the best practices, applied by the most successful and admirable athletes of all times, as well as offer
them a comprehensive programme, full of
effective tools and techniques.

We deeply believe in the power of sustained effort and continuous improvement (Kaizen) to achieve your absolute best (Mastery) and are committed to a long-term cooperation to produce groundbreaking results in the long-run.
