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. - Part 1: Impact skill Part 2: Short toprope falls Part 3: Longer toprope falls Part 4: Lead falls Additional videos of giving a cushioned catch and advanced falling while committing to a move. - Impact Skill
- Short toprope falls
- Longer toprope falls
- Lead falls
- Advanced falls
- Rob practicing "catch/release" at New River Gorge. Note long exhale throughout the fall.
- Gleb practicing advanced falls, a pendulum, during a Warrior's Way Falling/Commitment camp at New River Gorge, WV.
- Gina practicing toprope falls at El Rito New Mexico. Nice body position but a little too "rag doll." Need a bit of body tension to maintain proper form
- Olivia doing the "catch release" to work through the fear of letting go and committing fully to the fall. Monitor Rock, Independence Pass, Colorado.
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
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.
I have many more videos from clinics and camps on my youtube channel: www.youtube.com/user/arnoilgner?feature=mhee - 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
