The Warrior's Way teaching how to engage risks in incremental ways so they are appropriate. Part of that learning process is understanding the consequences of our decisions. In climbing, falling is the consequence.

These are interesting videos, but they should all be in one thread. Timothy Mark

OK, sorry for the multiple posts. This is the first time I uploaded videos and didn't know I could have more than one per. Anyway, I combined them, but MP wouldn't let me delete the last one because there were comments attached.
Again, sorry for the problem with this. Arno

Hi Arno -- thanks for posting this! Good to see the training forum put to good use.

If you ever need any help with posting issues, just give me a call and I can talk you through it. I'll go ahead and delete your other post (part 4) since it's included here.

Posted more videos (in initial post) from recent Warrior's Way falling training camps. Here Amber doing a nice transition from climbing stance to falling with appropriate body position of legs/arms about shoulder-width apart and bent. Nice cushion by Monica also.

In them, I have notes that highlight what students are doing well and/or incorrectly. Remember, these are students so they don't do the exercises exactly correct. But, we can learn from the challenges they exhibit and work through. Arno
