“The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.” – Henri Bergson
I was very fortunate to play baseball at the professional level. If I could do it all over again, I would watch more swings of comparable hitters. I’m a visual learner, which means I generally can mimic actions really well. This really helps my golf swing.
But video technology wasn’t assessable during my collegiate and professional baseball career. In my day, if you weren’t a kinesthetic or auditory learner, well, good luck to you.
For me, seeing is believing. Once I see it, I can understand it; I can feel it; and then I can become it.
At Diamond Directors, we use Dartfish video analysis during our onsite Hitting Lab sessions. The Dartfish Video Analysis system is a standard video computer software system that helps analyze your swing mechanics. The system’s “SimulCam” and “StroMotion” technology enables us to record your swing and compare it to previous recordings of your swing.
This not only helps identify swing flaws, but it also helps our visual learning clients trust what we’re saying.
It’s true: Seeing is believing, especially if you’re a visual learner.
I have simplified the mechanics of swing into six working parts and three components. For a complete look at our analysis on this, check out our Diamond Director blogs. As long as I can see your swing on video, I can diagnose it and prescribe sustaining drills.
