About Lee Taft

As a college basketball player, in my junior year, I started questioning why my coach would tell my teammates and me to “stop moving certain ways” or “move your feet this way.”  His instructions were confusing and didn’t make total sense.  

As a result, I started to pay attention to my feet. I started watching films about how athletes moved and taking mental notes. I noticed all athletes moved without conscious thought. Keep in mind that this was when coaches were not thinking about footwork.   

I started to see movement patterns of how athletes reacted to stimuli. Each athlete moved the same way, more or less, depending on ability. I realized that everyone had the same qualities.

This realization piqued my interest, so I began researching more about the sympathetic nervous system and signals sent to the body by the brain. I discovered it was about the fight or flight response. What I didn’t find was the breakdown of how. It was apparent there simply wasn’t much out there.

For this reason, I started to look at physics and connect the dots – watching even more athletes move and studying those movement patterns compared to the laws of movement.

I did not have YouTube. I had to watch in person to see how athletes moved. I even needed to visit the library to read books and watch old films. It took more effort than searching the internet with a few key phrases.  What we can now search for in minutes took weeks and months. It was easy to find lots of information on sprinting, but nothing on multi-directional speed existed. Based on that, I started to piece together my model of how I saw athletes move. I connected it to physics and the laws of movement.

Early in my career, I studied how the brain signaled our bodies what to do. How the body sequences movement patterns. Based on that, I discovered a model of human movement to compare what to expect. It is basic Biomechanical laws. Not just my thoughts but what science has taught us. That is the key. Ground ourselves in foundational science.

Don’t Just Take My Word For It…

“The Speed Toolbox has really allowed me to grow as a coach and teach proven scientific back movement principles. In the past, I had the tendency to hide my lack of knowledge behind a “cool” looking drill.”

“After 35 years as a physical education teacher/ middle school counselor, I wanted to recreate myself in retirement. Became a personal trainer and Speed and Agility Coach through Lee’s course. Been following him ever since! Lee has been incredibly supportive and encouraging, and I attribute all I’ve learned to Lee and believe in his approach. So grateful he openly shares his knowledge and passion for speed and quality movement with us!”
