Govinda Patterson's Revolutionary Basketball Better Balance Techniques
From Govinda Patterson on Facebook

This revolutionary ideas combine basketball strategies with techniques learned in the martial arts. I call this system the “Better Balance Techniques.
It doesn’t matter how big or strong or fast you are. If you know your center of balance and you use it to control your opponent’s balance, then you have a big advantage.
Why would you play off-balance if you didn’t have to?. I think what I’m teaching can help shape the way people play the game.
I want to transform the fundamental footwork of basketball with an array of offensive moves and defensive stances developed from martial arts-based principles of leverage.
I envision doing this by teaching my concepts—and the offensive and defensive schemes specifically designed to employ them—to an NBA team and watching it win a championship with them.
I do understand I’m asking for a lot.
I grew up playing basketball in and around Mount Shasta, Calif. I was an all-star post player in high school and grew to be 6 feet 5 1/2 inches tall, and I played junior college ball at the College of the Siskiyous before a back injury prematurely ended my career. Along the way, I also had dabbled in the martial arts, including aikido, judo and karate, and I earned a brown belt in Kung Fu San Soo.
I didn’t realize it at first that what I was doing was combining what I had learned in (martial arts training) and applying it to basketball. After I got hurt I couldn’t play, so I thought about the game all the time, and it just made so much more sense. The center of balance - knowing your center of gravity - was the key. The techniques help so much with post offense, post defense and rebounding.
I did some voluntary and assistant coaching in California and Utah before moving to the Islands to be with my girlfriend, Lianna. I’d lived in Mililani the past three years and I am now trying to promote his idea to NBA coaching staffs. I'd talked with nine NBA teams and one WNBA team, but so far I havn’t been able to get past an introductory stage and all the way to the head coach.
Every team has loved what I’ve shown them, but unfortunately I haven’t been able to see any head coaches yet. It boggles my mind. I would think that any coach who wants to win would be willing to see me for 10 minutes. I realize that the NBA has hundreds of people calling them, and they may think this is just another crazy person calling. (But) I think this (technique) definitely creates a chance to give their players an advantage. Even if it’s only a couple of rebounds a game, it’s worth it!.
Basketball legend Bill Walton helped me in my journey. He watched and listened so intently, and said he agreed with everything I said, and then he wrote me a great letter of recommendation. It’s opened so many doors.
“He has some valuable things to offer. I don’t know if all of it works, but there are some things you could use. Looking at how he connects with players, there’s something there. The problem is, you have to be a big-time coach to get your team to sign off on the expense of bringing a guy in for two weeks from Hawaii. And then there’s the time commitment. It’s just easier to say no. What he needs is the chance, once and for all, to succeed or fail.”, says finally former Sacramento Kings head coach Keith Smart.
