Motor Control

graphic of handstand Motor control goes beyond the mechanics of movement and seeks to gain an understanding of sports technique from a perspective of coordination and neuro-muscular control. Instability may be controlled by continuous adjustment allowing the performance of handstands or non-twisting layout double somersaults. The characteristics of optimal technique may be based upon considerations of sensitivity and control as in the case of the scooped giant circle on high bar.
