Japan Mentorship Experience applications available Saturday, February 16 at 8AM (Japan Standard Time)

Fall 2019: October 21-25, 2019

Spring 2020: April 20-24, 2020

For the past eight years, Performance in Motion (PIM) has been thrilled to offer a variety of educational seminars for numerous talented rehabilitation and performance training professionals throughout Japan. Team PIM is so excited to be able to open our doors for an immersive experience at our home facility in Chicago, Illinois, where participants can learn, practice, and collaborate through our inaugural PIM Japan Mentorship Experience. Throughout this week-long program, a small group (<30) of rehabilitation and performance training professionals will dive deeper than ever into evaluating, diagnosing, and enhancing the Movement System across the entire Movement Spectrum in an intimate, hands-on, learn-by-doing format. Side by side with the PIM staff, and fully interpreted into Japanese, this experience will provide members a once in a lifetime opportunity to grow as a movement professional, collaborate with others, and return to Japan with a strong grasp of how to optimize the Movement System so that each of their athletes can thrive in sport and life.

過去8年間に渡って、Performance in Motion (PIM)は日本中のリハビリテーションとパフォーマンスに関わる優れた専門家たちに様々なセミナーを提供させていただいたことを非常に嬉しく感じています。チームPIMは、本拠地イリノイ州シカゴにある施設でみなさんが没頭して学べるPIMジャパン・メンターシップ体験をお知らせします!初のPIMジャパン・メンターシップ体験で参加者は学び、練習し、協力していただきます。1週間にわたるプログラムを通して、30人以下のリハビリテーションとパフォーマンスに関わる専門家たちは、親密でハンズオン、やりながら学ぶ形式の環境で、ムーブメント・スペクトラム全体を通して運動系を評価・診断・改善することをより深く学びます。PIM スタッフと共に(もちろんすべて日本語に訳されます)この体験は参加者に運動のプロとして一生に一度の機会となる経験を与え、他の専門家たちと協力し合い、日本のアスリート達がスポーツと人生ともに成功できるように運動系を最適化する方法をしっかりと理解して日本に帰国できます。

Selection criteria 選択基準 

Our primary aim is to provide each participant with the most rewarding, world-class experience possible, and we feel this is best achieved with a well-balanced, diverse class comprised of a variety of movement professionals from all over Japan. Please understand, this application process IS NOT ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVE basis. Participation in prior PIM seminars will be heavily considered, but not required, when selecting applicants for admission. If qualified applicants outnumber the available seats in each mentorship class, a “waitlist” will be initiated.
