Agility is not only about size and speed, it is about building mental coordination and flexibility. In gymnasts, the rear lobe of the brain which is responsible for balance coordination is much more developed than the average person. A lot of that contributes to your ability to change direction quickly.

'Urban Ninja' is the secret to developing exceptional agility -in my case anyway.
What the **** are you smoking?
