Dr. Robert Butler of Duke University discusses the typical FMS score. A score of 14 is considered to be the ideal number that in theory someone would be required to clear for higher level movement training. There is often debate that a 14 may be a lofty goal, but Dr. Butler displays research indicating that may not necesarily be the case.

“As a Tae Kwon Do and RKC Kettlebell instructor, the FMS has help me personally improve my ability to properly perform techniques as well as improving my clients. In the past I was stumped and frustrated by those clients that seemed uncoachable when it
came to improving certain movements or techniques. The FMS has given me the insight to recognize bad movement patterns and the tools to objectively rank and improve movement quality. Knowing the 'why,' 'when' and 'how' of incorporating correctives and increasingly
difficult exercise progressions into my private and group sessions has produced pain-free, efficient athletes with beautiful movement regardless of the activity. Thanks to the FMS system, I have been able to improve the performance of 'difficult' clients even
when other more credentialed professionals could not.”
