- Poor old Jedi…
I’m turning up tomorrow for a one-on-one.
Sorry folks. Truly. If you want to blame someone for what’s left of him blame that Mark ‘Bullheart’ Fradgely chap who inspired me to do it.
He’s not even met me yet and he’s been involved in discussions about male bikini lines. 😯
But seriously: stoked and looking forward to it! 😀Posted 5 years agoAdamWMember
Well I’ve managed to catch up with arguments at work with Hungarians so have a few lunchtime moments to recall my day.
It was brilliant.
After a skills check which could have been filmed and put on that Harry Hill show (either “You’ve been framed” or “TV Burp” – take your choice), Jedi gave some tuition on cornering and unweighting then said words that made me A Bit Nervous: “next: dropoffs!”.
Blimey. Three dropoffs of different sizes. Baby dropoff, Mummy dropoff and “You’re going to poo yourself” dropoff.
I did them! Me! All of them! And the way he taught me was *so* simple! None of this “thousands of techniques” gubbins.
Then on to sections of a built trail for training. Then linking them up. I won’t say what was on there apart from a rocky bit, a jumpy bit, bermy bits and droppy bits. I did that too, except the big droppy bit which was ultra scary for this wuss. 😀 I think he had a laugh as I kept reminding myself what to do by speaking: “feet!”, “look!”, “unweight”, “push!”.
Then on to a table-top. I ever so nearly cleared it with a jump. Jump! Me! Simple to do! At that time though I could feel my attention wandering – getting tired – and called it a day before I damaged myself.
I spent a very enjoyable four hours in Jedi’s company. An experience I’m going to take on to Afan this weekend and practice. And practice. And keep in touch asking him questions. And go back after a while so he can tell me what I’ve forgotten! My brain is feeling a bit like its been rewired as I’m forgetting old useless stuff as the new stuff pushes it out. Must be done via mind trick!
As I’m sure everyone who has been with him will say, Jedi is an absolutely top bloke. If you want quality training: go – you won’t be disappointed.
Many thanks to the post from Bullheart who set me on the trail…
BTW I did ask him about how he managed to get into people’s heads like that and I can’t remember much except for the words ‘droids’ and ‘not looking’ 😀Posted 5 years agomaxtorqueMember
