what former students have to say

I have been blessed to work with thousands of students/course attendees over the years and each of them has helped me at least as much as I’ve been able to teach them. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with so many great people!

David has an insightful way of looking at injuries and the best way to prevent them. He doesn’t just present standard exercise or rehab protocols, he gives us real world information that we can use now.

I met David when he came to lecture in China at Beijing Sport University. He had good information to share and it was well received by me and my classmates. I have incorporated this information in the research I now do. Thank you David.

When I was pursuing my doctoral degree, David was one of our faculty members. He provided research to support what he taught, which I greatly appreciated. Not only that, he made us think by asking us many questions in reply to our questions. When he was done teaching the course, he remained a mentor and continues to help with professional issues to this day!

It was great having David teach our Biomechanics course. He supplemented the textbook information with situations and experiences he has had. So many times we have teachers that haven’t worked with athletes (which is what I want to do), it helps a ton to be able to have him share those athlete stories with us. It makes it more real.
