The Most Complete Defensive Curriculum on the Market!
Dynamic Defense is the training tool to use if you want to improve your players on the defensive end of the floor, both individually and as a team. It is designed to take your players through 4 specific levels of defensive execution.
Level 1: Each player will learn how to properly play an opponent in a 1-on-1 situation. Included are techniques for effectively guarding the ball in a half or full court setting.
Level 2: Each player will learn the proper defensive stance, position, and methods for guarding off the ball (including post defense).
Level 3: Each individual is brought together as a unit and trained on how to properly play team defense. The individual skills learned in Levels 1 and 2 will prove valuable for each of these defensive situations.
Level 4: Also known as the "black belt" of defense, Level 4 works the player and team through high level and complex rotation and recovery scenarios.
Bonus Section: Dynamic Defense finishes with a series of lessons focused on mental toughness, rebounding, speed & agility and quickness.
Levels 1 & 2
Dynamic Defense is a program built around the idea that there are 4 levels of execution that must be acquired in order to reach defensive "perfection". The 1st DVD in the series is focused on the first 2 levels.
The DVD begins with an 18 minute interview, featuring retired NBA coach Dick Helm. In the interview, Coach Helm talks though each of the four levels of Dynamic Defense. He explains how he used the system for years in the NBA, particularly during his 15-year tenure as an assistant to Hall of Famer Lenny Wilkens.
Level 1 (55 minutes) In Level 1, players will learn the proper techniques for guarding the ball in both a half and full court setting.
Level 2 (40 minutes) In Level 2, players will learn how to properly defend off the ball, including the correct stance, position, and footwork. Each position is taught, including the post.
Included in this DVD is Level 0 (55 minutes), which will teach your players how to develop and fine-tune their movement and motor skills. Included are 2 sections on speed, agility, and quickness.

Dynamic Defense: Levels 1 & 2 is ideal for coaches and players alike. Whether you are a coach trying to increase your knowledge of the game and clean up your team defense or a player who is serious about reaching his or her potential and helping your team win, this DVD is for you. Dynamic Defense: Levels 1 & 2 has it all; from 1-on-1 and help defense to speed, agility, and quickness training, you are guaranteed to take your defense to the next level. There is no other product on the market right now that can compare to this incredible training video!
Levels 3 & 4
Dynamic Defense: Levels 3 & 4 takes the principles learned in Levels 1 & 2 and expands on them as it relates to complete team defense.
For the purpose of our videos, a situation is defined as an offensive action that attacks 2 or defenders simultaneously and engages all 5 defensive players. We will focus on the 2 primary types of situations: Planned Situations (those that are prepared for and practiced) and Surprise Situations (those that are unexpected and rely on a defender's ability to quickly react). The Level 3 section teaches players how to handle both of these situations effectively.
As you may already suspect, Level 4 is the "mountaintop", so to speak, of individual and team defense. Once a situation is successfully guarded (Level 3), a Level 4 defender must be able to properly rotate without surrendering a basket and recover to his or her original matchup, all while helping his or her teammates do the same.
A Level 4 defender (aka Black Belt) is someone that is incredibly advanced in their knowledge and awareness on the defensive end of the floor. To have one player on a team reach this level is special, let alone all 5 players on the floor. But through these revolutionary training videos, this seemingly impossible feat can suddenly become attainable!
Dynamic Defense: Levels 3 & 4 closes with Rick Torbett instructing on how to combine each of the levels together for specific application, including how to improve your zone defense using the principles taught in Dynamic Defense.
Wait, that's not all! There is a special bonus included on this DVD. Watch as legendary NBA Coach Dick Helm implements all 4 levels of Dynamic Defense to a high school team in just 41 minutes. Use his cues and teaching points to be able to immediately integrate Dynamic Defense into your own team's practice. This is one opportunity you do not want to pass up!
Becoming Mentally Tough
Throughout the DVD series, Dynamic Defense covers every facet of individual and team defense. You will be instructed on 1-on-1 defense, help defense, rebounding, how to properly defend situations, and advanced rotate and recovery techniques.
You will be shown how best to train for speed, agility, and quickness. You will get an inside look at the proper way to implement Dynamic Defense to your own team, as shown by legendary NBA Coach Dick Helm. Rick Torbett will even show you how to apply it to your zone defense.
But as we all know, there is more to good defense than just methods and tactics. Like any sport, there is a mental component that can either lead to failure or take everything you have ever learned to the next level.
In the final DVD of the Dynamic Defense system, Spencer Wood conducts a course in Mental Toughness Training for Playing Championship Defense. Spencer has 2 undergrad degrees, a Master's Degree in Exercise Science (California University), and a PhD (ABD) in psychology with an emphasis in sport psychology.
Spencer has received international media coverage for his workshops with championship teams at the US Olympic Training Center, in the NBA, and with various collegiate teams from power conferences across the country. Without question, this DVD completes Dynamic Defense, easily making it the most comprehensive and advanced curriculum for teaching individual and team defense on the market today.
