The Warrior’s Way

Clinic description: This clinic addresses fear of falling and improving commitment. We'll do falling, movement, and resting exercises and apply all learned skills to a challenging route. We'll do this in small increments creating appropriate progressions for each student. You'll leave with a structured method for taking appropriate risks with diminished fear.

 

You’ll learn:

·         To fall safely

·         To give a cushioned belay

·         To distinguish between no- and yes-fall zones

·         How to engage no- and yes-fall zones

·         To break a climb into smaller risk events

·         Better risk assessment

·         How to rest effectively

·         To improve breathing

·         To trust the body

·         To create flow and momentum        

·         To commit more deliberately

·         To reduce fear
