As used by the world's top Rugby union teams; Speed is what separates the best players from the rest. But to succeed in the sport today, all rugby players are expected to be able to run, side-step, jump, tackle and control the ball quickly and accurately. SAQ is a revolutionary training method which has proved that the explosive speed, acceleration and reaction times so crucial to the sport can now be developed in all players - whatever their size and shape. Packed with drills designed to get each player to their maximum velocity in the shortest time possible, it also improves balance, co-ordination and body awareness and hence results in fewer injuries. Essential reading for coaches working with all ages and at all levels.
Before setting up SAQ International, Alan Pearson was Malaysia's National Director of Rugby Coaching, and Director of Rugby at Leeds Rugby Union FC. He has also represented Western Australia and Queensland on many occasions.
