What is DMS?

Dynamic Movement Skills (DMS) training methodology that stimulates the nervous system and the proprioceptive system and helps to refine and develop neuromuscular efficiency and motor patterns.

It is designed to improve movement quality, agility, balance, coordination, and overall athletic performance.

The DMS training methodology involves a series of exercises that are progressive and challenging, designed to improve the body's neuromuscular efficiency. The exercises are structured in a way that simulates the demands of various sports and physical activities, making them effective for athletes of all levels.

The DMS training methodology is effective for improving athletic performance and reducing the risk of injury. It is also beneficial for individuals looking to improve their overall movement quality and fitness level.

How does it help with kids movement?

It is particularly beneficial for children as it helps develop their fundamental movement skills, which are essential for their overall physical development. By practicing the exercises involved in DMS training, kids can improve their balance, coordination, agility, and overall movement quality.

Overall, DMS training is an effective way to improve kids' movement quality, physical development, and overall health. By engaging in this type of training, kids can develop a love for physical activity that will stay with them throughout their lives.

It is also used extensively with children with dyspraxia. movement dysfunction, hypermobility, autism, and SEN (Special Educational Needs).

How does it help with speed?

'Effective speed' is the ability to regulate acceleration and deceleration and the ability to produce maximum speed of movement. This means that the body will move most effectively and efficiently within the range of speed that the nervous system has been programmed to allow. So, the priority must be to improve the firing sequence of the motor unit.

The DMS methodology trains the nervous system and the proprioceptive system to fire more quickly and more efficiently.

DMS Speed provides extensive and progressive training sessions in a detailed coaching manual for athletes who want to develop Speed over 5m - 10M, quickness, and explosiveness. It can be incorporated into the overall training plan to develop movement patterns, explosiveness & quick feet in the first three steps and 5-10 metres. This methodology will work for individual training and within an academy set-up and 1st team athletes.

The methodology is used extensively in sporting academies - football, tennis, basketball, and handball, and in many primary and secondary schools.
