A Kinesiologist  will be able to assess the possibilities and difficulties associated with the many specific actions claimed to have occurred during the fight GZ asserts.  For example,  the speed and distance studies already done by blog analysts can provide substantial clues as to Trayvon's likely speed of travel and strength.  While the matter of GZ's gun draw and aim from the positions he claims,  may reveal to the expert analyst certain difficulties that make it less likely to impossible.   Videos of how each participant moved are available,  and expert study can reveal the amount of muscle strength each was able to apply.
So this field of study can reveal much by giving limits and ranges that the narratives had to stay within.

 Kinesiology is the study of human and animal movement, performance, and function by applying the sciences of biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, psychology, and neuroscience. Applications of kinesiology in human health include physical education teacher, the rehabilitation professions, such as physical and occupational therapy, as well as applications in the sport and exercise industries. Kinesiology is a field of scientific study, and does not prepare individuals for clinical practice. A bachelor's degree in kinesiology can provide strong preparation for graduate study in biomedical research, as well as in professional programs, such as allied health and medicine.

Whereas the term "kinesiologist" is neither a licensed nor professional designation in the United States nor most countries (with the exception of Canada), individuals with training in this area can teach physical education, provide consulting services, conduct research and develop policies related to rehabilitation, human motor performance, ergonomics, and occupational health and safety. In North America, kinesiologists may study to earn a Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, or Doctorate of Philosophy degree in Kinesiology or a Bachelor of Kinesiology degree, while in Australia or New Zealand, they are often conferred an Applied Science (Human Movement) degree (or higher). Many doctoral level faculty in North American kinesiology programs received their doctoral training in related disciplines, such as neuroscience, mechanical engineering, psychology, and physiology.

The world's first kinesiology department was launched in 1967 at the University of Waterloo, Canada.   READ MORE


 Here's a database of kinesiologists,  but it will require a wiki read to determine exactly which field of kinesiology is applicable,  if someone wishes to query them for an opinion on this case.  THE DOK a searchable kinesiology database.

There's also a mention I found,  of a kinesiologist who spoke at a Trayvon event,  I don't know if his field is applicable to a study but here's the excerpt,  in case anyone wants to search for him.

  Damion Thomas, a panelist and an assistant professor of kinesiology who works with a program in Physical Cultural studies, stressed the importance of maintaining a movement beyond this incident so that the issues will not be forgotten.

Happy hunting.
