The IPNFA would like to congratulate Shige Ichikawa on his participation at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games!!!
I had a great experience at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 2016.
I have been working with a Japanese table tennis athlete as a PT. Our goal was to improve her performance using PNF concepts for several years. I am sure that PNF is a very effective method to improve her body function and performance in sports.
This Olympic athlete invited me to come to Rio as her personal trainer and PT.
We discussed many times about how to achieve a great performance.
I applied PNF concepts in the various situations for the athlete. The most effective application was to achieve a great muscular reaction for performance.
Finally, my athlete achieved a bronze medal. I believe PNF contributed to achieve a bronze medal.
