Overview: I believe that athletics are an indispensable companion to academics. In this regard, I have been engaged in research, for over fifteen years, on the human learning process using tennis as a research venue with my colleagues at Harvard and Berkeley. Our results demonstrate that tennis training provides significant insights into the human learning process in all areas including such abstract disciplines as mathematics. Further, our results show that tennis training can be dramatically accelerated by incorporating neuroscience into tennis programs.
Dr. Brown is an internationally recognized expert in high performance tennis training having published over 200 articles on advanced tennis training at TennisONE.com (US based), Procomparetennis.net (Great Britain) and Mid Atlantic Match Point (Virginia) and now Tennis World USA. From the urging of many local parents and coaches, Dr. Brown founded the EASI Academy in the summer of 2007. The academy has rapidly grown, through word of mouth, from a service to the community to a magnet for students and players who are high academic achievers seeking the highest level of professional training available.
Dr. Brown's innovations have been to introduce neuroscience and the science of learning into tennis training and to construct a program that integrates all five dimensions of training into a single player development program.
Using these advanced methods, Dr. Brown's training program has been used to rapidly accelerate players at every level of skill, from novice to professional. Typically, a novice training at the EASI Academy will develop significant skills in as little as 6 months that would otherwise require two years to develop using classical tennis training methods.
