On Oct. 17, Kadour Ziani turned 36. Better known as the Flying man, Zianimal, the Dunkfather or whatever nickname he earned the past 20 years, the French-Algerian 5′11″ dude kept doing his thing on the worldwide courts: double windmill, 360° over people, kick the rim and other signatures moves acclaimed by numerous athletes and dunk fans.
Before getting this status of “legendary dunker,” Kadour played soccer professionally, broke some records in high jumping, played volleyball and handball. (He has this talent of being good at any discipline.)
Recently, he was invited to Phoenix, Arizona, to shoot a training DVD with Sport Videos, a distribution and production company specializing in multi-sport DVDs.
In this video Kadour will reveal some of his secrets to improving your body strength, suppleness, footwork and of course vertical leap.
