Dr. Wang provided effective psychological and technical consultations to me and helped me eliminate competitive anxiety and keep concentrated for achieving the Olympic gold medal at the 2006 Winter Olympic Games in Italy. I am truly thankful for Dr. Wangs consultations. Dr. Wangs new applied motor learning book will help coaches and athletes understand the important scientific principles related to sport skill training. Han Xiao Peng, Chinese Free-Style Skiing Aero-Jump Olympic Athlete who won the Olympic gold medal at the 2006 Winter Olympic Games in Italy
This is the book coaches and PE teachers have been waiting for. Dr. Wang, a former elite soccer player and coach, and Dr. Chen show coaches how to take motor learning principles and integrate them into their practice sessions. In their treatment of skill learning, the authors not only show coaches how to break motor skills down into their component parts but they also demonstrate how to enhance learning by taking skills from practice sessions and putting them into actual competition. Applied Motor Learning is a welcomed addition to the motor learning literature because of its theoretical and practical orientations. It is a new approach to the study of one of the most important aspects of teaching/coaching. William F. Straub, PhD, FACSM, Certified Sport Psychology Consultant for Association of Applied Sport Psychology Former professor, dean, and professional athlete and coach
The information compiled by Dr. Wang and Dr. Chen is extremely valuable. As a physical educator, I especially enjoyed the concepts of the application of practice in various settings and how that can be transferred to the game or competition setting. Applied Motor Learning is easy to follow and enjoyable to read. I highly recommend this for those looking to maximize the efficiency of practice to game transfer. R. David Worrall, Elementary Physical Educator, Former GAHPERD State President, and former GAHPERD Elementary Physical Education Teacher of the Year.
