If you are an athlete or a coach and looking to improve mental skills, Jiro Iiyama is the professional who will help you. Mr. Iiyama introduces you to a new “Japan Style” of mental skills training incorporating some elements of the ancient Japanese spirit of Zen alongside modern brain science.
So what is the “Japan Style” exactly?
Traditional mental skills training comes from a Western perspective and focuses on image training to improve skills. In Japan Style Mr. Iiyama also prepares the “mind” to follow the ancient Japanese spiritual way of Zen, and look to change the way the “mind” is. By including this element into the mental skills training the effect of the training will be maximized. This training also incorporates modern brain science and he looks at the link between consciously taken action, which part of the brain is stimulated by this action, how the brain is effected, and how the brain responds. Once these processes are understood you will know how to use the power of your brain more effectively.
To give an example, in image training we normally just imitate the action or process in our mind without any deep understanding of how the image training is actually effecting our brain. However, once you clearly understand why the fundamental mechanism of repeating an image can lead to desired results, you will be able to promote the desired the behavioral change and achieve the desired effect sooner.
The Japan Style method of mental skills training taught by Mr.Iiyama has a good theoretical basis and it is reproducible. Therefore it can be understood by anyone, and everyone can expect to gain positive results from implementing it.
