Govinda Patterson's Revolutionary Basketball Better Balance Techniques

This revolutionary ideas combine basketball strategies with techniques learned in the martial arts. I call this system the “Better Balance Techniques.

It doesn’t matter how big or strong or fast you are. If you know your center of balance and you use it to control your opponent’s balance, then you have a big advantage.

Why would you play off-balance if you didn’t have to?. I think what I’m teaching can help shape the way people play the game.

I want to transform the fundamental footwork of basketball with an array of offensive moves and defensive stances developed from martial arts-based principles of leverage.

I envision doing this by teaching my concepts—and the offensive and defensive schemes specifically designed to employ them—to an NBA team and watching it win a championship with them.

I do understand I’m asking for a lot.

I grew up playing basketball in and around Mount Shasta, Calif. I was an all-star post player in high school and grew to be 6 feet 5 1/2 inches tall, and I played junior college ball at the College of the Siskiyous before a back injury prematurely ended my career. Along the way, I also had dabbled in the martial arts, including aikido, judo and karate, and I earned a brown belt in Kung Fu San Soo.

I didn’t realize it at first that what I was doing was combining what I had learned in (martial arts training) and applying it to basketball. After I got hurt I couldn’t play, so I thought about the game all the time, and it just made so much more sense. The center of balance - knowing your center of gravity - was the key. The techniques help so much with post offense, post defense and rebounding.
