Sensei Block Teachings continue…

Remember this?

A strange thing happened today… If not – look back to the post featuring Thea on April 7th 2019

In summary in 3 hrs with the aid of blocks and preps from the 80’s Nicky managed to teach Thea (and all of us watching) how with the correct technique anything is achievable.

I’m sure 30 years of knowledge helps too but I digress…

From that date till now, Thea has worked tirelessly, session after session, on shortening her side to increase her angular momentum or twisting speed. The faster you can twist, the more rotations you can perform. Which is simple to say, however takes complete understanding before any gymnast can execute the move whilst in the air

However after weeks of preparations, wholehearted commitment on Thursday 11th of July we are proud to announce that

Thea can now do this…

Then to prove it was no fluke she landed three in a row

Stunning development Warrior in just 13 weeks we salute you.

In addition a massive thank you to Nicky who teaches us mere mortals something new every session that blows our minds.

  • So after many frustrating sessions for coaches, gymnast and mum lol my amazing daughter finally realised what she had to do to twist!!! Nickys workshop is an amazing place with amazing people and coaches that really care and want to push and get the best from each and every child!! I’m so proud of both my girls who attend gymnastics here and long may their development continue!!!
