The dunk - the action of slamming the ball into the basket after a jump - is the lethal weapon of basketball, a burst of adrenaline that allows you to gain psychological advantage over the opponent and galvanize the public. Some players have brought an aesthetic dimension to it, elevating the discipline to the level of art. Kadour Ziani is one of them. For 20 years, this smash pioneer has inspired dunkers around the world.

An excerpt from the "Flying 101" DVD.

You will discover how I came back to the best level, at an age when many thought I was done!


When I first saw Kadour Ziani dunk at halftime of the Paris And1 Mixtape Game in 2003 my teammates and I couldn’t believe what kind of performance he put on. And that’s coming from guys who have seen the best of the best in the world. Ziani separates himself with excellent athleticism and showmanship. And I’m almost certain his workout methods have to be world class for him to do that in longevity.
The Professor
Kadour is the first dunker to properly address strength and flexibility, and this inspired me to change my own body when I couldn’t dunk. I fixed myself and became a trainer to help others do the same. I’ve now helped people to over 1500 knee success stories and Kadour was one of my very key mentors that I believe is responsible for helping all these people! I am forever grateful, and he will always be my hero.

In my opinion, Kadour Ziani is the best dunker of all time, he developed his body like a shaolin monk and his methods are the best. I believe that every person can develop his body and become graceful, however you need proper training in order to do so. Zianimal methods are the best, it’s hard but if you really want something you can get it.
