Our Clubhouse Features the Makoto Machine!

What is Makoto?

The Makoto arena is a triangle, 8 feet from base to apex, with indestructible 6-ft. steel posts rising from each corner. Using your hands, feet, and/or staff, you respond to audio and visual prompts from each post. Your reaction time and accuracy (actually hitting the lighted area) are measured electronically, so you can compete with yourself or others. The speed of the prompts is easily adjusted for varying abilities.

Why Use Makoto?

Therapists, trainers, educators, and athletes all remark on how Makoto achieves their purpose while feeling more like a game than "therapy" or "training." And we all know we work hardest when we're at play. Frequently integrated into the training schedule of professional sports teams, Makoto increases the neurological connections between the brain and the body resulting in improved mental acuity, cognitive ability, reaction time and overall better coordination and performance.

Most importantly, Makoto improves your mental focus and physical abilities while you're having fun. The Makoto arena measures your reaction time and accuracy, so each time you try it you are given a benchmark to improve upon. The sound and light frequency can be set according to each person's ability.

Competitive games and usage (for personal training, intra-team competition, intramurals, etc.) are listed within Makotocols, a guidebook of Makoto games. Some professional teams, such as the Denver Nuggets, use Makoto in team tryouts, measuring the physical and mental reactions of players.
