The Taitoc Story – How did it all begin?
The birth of the Taitoc Skill Training System was inspired by the growing need of developing fundamental motor skills in youth. The work started by building the structure and the content for the motor skill coaching and it was soon integrated into the daily programming of youth athletes.
Inspiration, Improvement, Implementation
The values of Taitoc -program and philosophy can be condensed into these three main outcomes. The joy of movement combined with great coaching is a source of inspiration for learning, developing and applying movement and motor skills, whether in sports or in life in general.
Inspiration and joy are in the heart of learning and the energy that carries the process forward. For this reason, Taitoc -programs focus on learning new skills based on an individual starting point. The various Taitoc -courses and modules are built on the foundation of an encouraging and supporting learning environment. The key ingredients are; plenty of positive experiences surrounding various movement and motor skills and exercises, and an environment for participants to engage in movements that are progressed based on their current skill level as well as their previous experiences. The coaching courses underscore the teachers and instructors role in inspiring and supporting the learners. The coaching education provides tools to adjusting the movement environment and the skill exercises together with the participants and involving them in the full experience of learning and growing with the program.
All the fun experiences incorporated within the Taitoc programs does not mean lesser quality or the absence of challenges, quite the contrary. One of the three key concepts in Taitoc is constant development and improvement. The comprehensive learning path for the fundamental movements enables a systematic progression for learning the fundamental motor skills that are instrumental for building fitness and athleticism. Taitoc philosophy emphasizes individualized learning, progressive challenges and the path of learning that altogether create a personalized approach to learning and improving. Each athlete and learner will travel their own path, but the destination is same for everyone: achieving movement skills and capacities that enable enjoyable personal participation in physical activity.
Once a motor skill is learned and becomes a permanent part of the movement library, it will be a resource that can applied in various situations in sport and in life. All of the daily movement is made of the fundamental motor skills and the development of these essential abilities should start early in childhood and continue through the rest of our lives. Taitoc philosophy highlights the importance of identifying the unique starting point for each individual and supporting their journey of learning by fostering the intrinsic motivation towards an active lifestyle and a desire to improve and to grow. The main goal of Taitoc programs is to help develop comprehensive physical abilities and skills needed to enjoy and succeed in physical activities and sports. The Taitoc learning pathway is built on the strong foundation of fundamental movement and motor skills and is delivered through a progressive and personal coaching program. The individualized approach enables the spark of inspiration to take a firm grip and lead the participant through a journey of learning and improvement to a place where they have the ability as well the motivation to apply and implement the skills in various forms of movement and activity.
The fundamental movement and motor skills are the foundation that the sport specific skills are built upon. If the movement foundation is weak, it will be challenging to have positive experiences as many of the building blocks or movement patterns are missing and is more difficult to achieve the rewards of success in sports. Taitoc -concept is based on the joy of learning and setting up a fire for movement.
