hi Anna Here is my “whats your angle” video. I went ahead and did this even though you haven’t reviewed my “are you paying attention” video yet. I submitted it 2 or 3 days ago and wanted to move on. As you can see at about 16 seconds in I asked for a right with an extreme angle. He did go right but was confused about which wing I was asking for. After 3 attempts at that angle I made it easier for him. In this particular training session that seemed to be the only thing that he didn’t understand.… Read more »
Some very good stuff here! Watching your video, I think you should add a low jumping bar, so that he can discriminate between the backside and the right/left more easily. It will change the picture for him a bit, so that he can understand that right means jumping and then turning around the wing and backside means going around the wing and then jumping.
I hope this makes sense.
All other turns and angles looked great!
Yes this does make sense to me. I’ll give it a try. Thanks
Very nice! The soft turns look great 🙂 In the next session, focus a bit more on the hard turns (wraps) away from you, as those were still a bit difficult for him.
Also, mix up both directions a bit more, so that he doesn’t fall into a pattern of only turning into one direction.
We focused on harder turns this time.
Working the harder angles again the next day. After doing 2 reps in 1 direction, he sometimes has difficulty going in the other direction, especially on these tougher approaches. But I feel he’s progressing nicely and his understanding is improving with more practice!
Nice progress in both videos! I do think it helps their understanding to switch between directions and angles quite a bit. Very good session 🙂 Keep up sessions like this and he will have quite solid understanding soon 😉
