of my coaches that have shared these fundamentals with me
have gone on to coach in the NFL and are well respected at
of the best ways to learn a complex skill is to practice the
parts of the skill before you try the whole skill. This method
is called The Whole-Part-Whole learning theory. This method
involves first teaching and practicing the whole and then
teaching and practicing one of its parts. Once the part is
learned, the whole is practiced again. This procedure is
repeated for each of the remaining parts.

They're saying about 'Punt N It'...
"Tommy is a very technical punter
with a lot of knowledge about the position. He excels in all areas of
punting: directional, coffin corner, pooch punts, and down the middle.
He has been in the league a long time and he makes a concerted effort to
prepare for each Sunday"
McDaniel, Former Redskins Special Teams Coach
San Diego State Special Teams Coach
- "There is a reason why
Tommy is in his 15th year and at the age of 37 there is no reason
he can't play for another five years. The reason he can play this
long is because he knows exactly what it takes both on and off
the field to perform at the NFL level. He is the consummate pro
when it comes to taking care of his body and he truly studies the
game of football. It would be to anyone's benefit to listen to
what Tommy Barnhardt has to say about the art of punting"
- - Joe
Marciano, Special Teams Coach
"One of the factors
responsible for Tommy's 15 successful seasons in the NFL is that
he not only knows sound technical and psychological techniques,
he applies and implements them in both the practice and game
situations. His use of learning theory like the Whole-Part-Whole
technique is an outstanding example of taking theory and turning
it into practice - practice that works in the NFL"
- John M. Silva
PhD, Professor Sports Psychology
University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill
- "I have known Tommy
Barnhardt since he was a senior in high school and then had the
special opportunity to be his coach at the University of North
Carolina. He had a good leg when I first met him, but through
hard work, dedication, attention to fundamentals and Practice,
Practice, Practice, he became truly one of the outstanding
punters of the last 15 years. His knowledge of technique, his
devotion to the game, and his willingness to share his talents
should make his video a "must" for all punters aspiring
to be good at their craft"
Chuck Priefer, Special Teams Coach
- "Flexibility is an
integral part of any kicking motion. Increased flexibility allows
the foot to remain on the ground longer providing more force,
allows the hips to stay square to the target, and muscle
elasticity allows greater limb velocity"
- - Skip
Hunter, P.T., A.T.,C.
Clemson Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation
- "Tommy is consistently
what you want from a punter. In recent years, he's been the best!
It doesn't matter if he's kicking out of the endzone or at
mid-field, he's just as steady"
