The method is the result of a long development process of more than 20 years, which has been utilized in training centers, universities, clubs and with professional players and coaches.

Ekkono-Online kurssi antoi päivittäisen arkeeni paljon laatua. Kurssin aktiivinen suorittaminen ja opiskelu haastoivat minut päivittäin pohtimaan omaa valmentamistani ja toimintaani. Online-kurssi auttoi ensin methdodology-osan avulla jäsentelemään peliä paremmin ja ymmärtämään, miksi tietyissä ikävaiheissa tulee keskittyä tiettyihin asioihin. Se auttoi minua luomaan kokonaiskuvaa jalkapallovalmentamisen kokonaisuudesta ja ymmärtää, miten progressiivisesti viedään pelaajaa eteenpäin. Esimerkiksi Planning-osio auttoi taas suoraan kenttätoimintaa ja auttoi rakentamaan tiettyyn ikäluokkaan ja opetettavaan asian sopivan harjoitteen ja harjoituskokonaisuuden. Kurssissa ehdottomasti oli myös loistavaa tutorilta saatava palaute. Palaute oli tarkkaa ja sieltä nostettiin hyvin asioita joihin pitäisi keskittyä lisää, ja annettiin kysymyksiä ja pohdintoja. Loppukokeiden tehtäväskaala oli myös ihailtavan laaja ja haastoi jokaisen osion lopuksi pohdiskelemaan tarkasti käsiteltyä asiaa.
