"Excellent, thorough and informative! I found this course very useful with clear and thorough instruction. The section about the ankle was particularly helpful and since implementing the techniques I have had much less rolling of my feet. I like how Tim explains each step in detail and also gives reasons why tape shouldn't be used in certain situations. Tim's expertise and skills are clearly demonstrated. I would highly recommend this course and further courses by Tim Cooper." - Jodie Tunks
