What started out as way to teach my sonhow to hit snowballed into instruction that is second to none. As the 2014 season came to a close it opened up the door to the 2015 season.
Most of the players who walk through our door have had prior instruction. Our goal is take that foundation and build on it. We never look to change our hitters to hit one way. We also live by a realistic approach, we need to evaluate a players ability and heart. So how do we do this.
Our first session is a video consultation. If we don't video a players swing we will never know what issues need to be corrected. With out the use of video we would waste hours and money fixing problems that do not need to be fixed. .
Our instruction teaches you the same hitting mechanics used by most of today hitters and 95% of the hitters in the hall of fame, in 7 hours. Depending on the players ability and commitment to practice the drills at home each lesson flows into the next and the player develops muscle memory. Muscle memory and repetition is the key to success and is what we do best by using selective drills helping the process.
WHAT ALL PLAYERS NEED TO LEARN and what is taught to all RKE Hitting Students.
A great swing is built from the feet up, players will learn.
How to get into a balanced position.
How to properly weight shift.
How to properly use their lower half.
How to create torque. (power)
How to properly keep their hands (bat) inside the ball.
How to stay on plane and short to the ball.
How to make adjustments to the ball (correcting on the fly)
WHAT IS THE MOST COMMON ISSUES IDENTIFIED DURING A HITTING ANAYLSIS?
Players not getting balanced causing a poor or lack of weight shift.
Players not using their lower half, the lower half is what creates power.
Players upper half, bat drag, arm bar, not slotting their hands to create a short path to the ball and wrist roll.
HOW ARE IDENTIFIED ISSUES CORRECTED?
There is only one way to correct any issue, we need to change muscle memory with proper drills and the use of video.
IF YOU HAVE HAD ANY INSTRUCTION AND THE USE OF VIDEO IS NOT BEING USED OR BEING USED IN A LIMITED CAPACITY YOU NEED TO ASK WHY.
The videos below are actual RKE Students before and afters. Included are some of todays most productive MLB Hitters demonstrating the same mechanics taught to all players.
