Progressive Axis Training™ is a systematic approach to learning and teaching the performance art of Cyr wheel.
The PAT technique™ was developed by former elite gymnast and performing Cyr artist Sam Tribble. Sam unanimously became the 1st USA Worlds Team Coach for Cyr as his company members both male and female, dominated the worlds team spots in 2013 and 2015.
Progressive Axis Training™ is a unique and effective teaching model that keeps basic health and fitness at it's root by developing balance and symmetry at the onset of learniing. PAT technique is unique in several ways. First it systematically introduces starting positions which are gateways to learning higher level skills. Second it integrates a comprehensive set of wheel manipulations cohesively throughout each session. Third it identifies center of balance in a "home" position, then defines both "long and short" axis of the two types of basic steps and continues to implement this methodology to advance skills. By identifying these reference points athletes learn to seamlessly accomplish whole movements in days or even hours which at one point was expected to take months and years. Fourth PAT technique is rooted in the laws of physics which dictate bodies in motion, angular momentum, centripetal energy, centrifugal force and conservation of energy. It integrates physics and biomechanics to help guide our natural tendencies towards successful movements.
