Dr. Kwame Brown (http://drkwamebrown.com/) is the founder of Move Theory and is a psychology professor at Hampton University. While attending Georgetown University, Kwame studied neural development and spinal cord injury, where he earned a PhD in Neuroscience.
Kwame’s quest to “improve” also led him to a simultaneous career as a personal trainer, instructor of yoga, Pilates, Zumba, and play based movement. However, as his journey expanded, he found a lot more than improvement. He found joy, love, and he found Active Play.
During Ep.#63, Kwame discusses the following with Mike & Sincere:
- What led Kwame to effectively combine the worlds of neuroscience and active play
- What is exactly is “active play” & why is it an important aspect of child, as well as adult development
- Why being an amateur may be even more important than striving to be a professional
- Why the term “obesity crisis” is absurd
- Why those that profess that the main thing that kids should focus on for character development and to move more, is to participate in sports may have it all wrong
- What happened during the podcast that shows why Kwame definitely has his priorities in order
- How does Sincere incorporate active play during kettlebell training with his clients
- What Mike Tyson can teach us about letting children find their own identity
- What we can learn from Roger Federer’s key to his success & how to apply this concept to child development via activity
- Why competition is an agreement
- What is the importance of self discovery & why it shouldn’t end when we’re young
- Why, due to cultural differences, Mike & Sincere view the term “Slapping bones” quite differently
- Why a lot of the corporate world’s functionality is very reflective of many aspects of organized sports
- What is “phallic mathematics” &amamp; why is it very detrimental to social progress
- Why it may be a good thing to take a break between the time someone graduates high school & starting college
- Why total dominance is “not” winning
