1. A method of teaching a physical skill to a student, comprising steps of:

  • (a) creating a model for the student using a method comprising steps of;

    (i) identifying and choosing a person to be used as a model;

    (ii) letting said model person perform said physical skill and measuring accelerations of objects wherein said objects are chosen from a group of objects comprising parts of the body of the model and objects carried by the model;

    (iii) storing the measured data in a storage area;

    (iv) modifying said data to fit the student'"'"'s physical skills and limitations, by changing the speed and the corresponding acceleration by a predetermined scaling factor;

    (b) playing back said model, using methods comprising audiovisual means;

    (c) letting said student perform said physical skill and measuring accelerations of objects wherein said objects are chosen from a group of objects comprising parts of the body of the student and objects carried by the student;

    (d) comparing the student'"'"'s motion with the model, using methods comprising audiovisual means;

    (e) letting said student repeatedly execute said physical skill while monitoring his motion using audiovisual means in real time until the student'"'"'s motion substantially coincide with said model.
