Summer Camp 1st Time Moves Continue…

Wow Wow Wow…What an afternoon!

What a week of development. From Dundee to Crawley we have had the pleasure of watching so many happy gymnasts perform debut moves that this summer will be hard to beat. However you Warriors keep proving me wrong.

First up its Kiki who has been tirelessly working on developing her Round Off Flick Unsupported. Her dedication and commitment is evident in this attempt and her cheeky personality too.

Love it.

Next up it’s Harmony who since conquering her fear of the round off flick has become a prep junkie now she knows the results. To see her perform this was amazing as in only 2 months she has improved to a level where she never previously thought reachable.

Fantastic work Daniel Scott Ford & Charlotte Doyle as alongside the stunning development in the videos above, there must be stunning development coaching going on behind the scenes. Take a well deserved bow all 4 of you!

Next up inspired by the previous 2 we have Natalie the 1hr wonder. After arriving at 12pm due to various public transport issues, in Natalie’s mind (if its even possible) was more determined than normal as she felt robbed of time.

The resulting commitment produced this…

Knowing her it will be Straight-Straight Full by next Friday!

However not to be out done last but not least Thea. Who was stuck in the middle of another Sensei matrix of tricking her mind. Whilst working tirelessly as she always does, Nix saw the possibility with her new found strength and confidence to mix things up and get her to do this…

Thea is possibly the strongest athlete we know. She never breaks down. Never stops and has unlimited potential. No shock she just keeps getting better and better. I wont reveal the final move Nix has in her web but will post and explain why she has her doing this prep upon completion of the final move.

Stunning development Warriors

Was a pleasure to see this afternoon moves. Definitely worth getting off my sick bed for.

Step by Steppers…

The truth will always out…

The road to glory is never an easy one. However over the course of anyone’s coaching career you’re going to come across those athletes who all you need to do is guide them. As they bring everything else to the party themselves.

As mentioned before, heart and desire can not be instilled by a coach. That comes from within. Over the next few months we will be showcasing that passion and the results from always trying to improve

Strange things keep happening…

120 minutes later the block was removed…

Following on from Sundays post (A strange thing happened today…) Tuesday’s session was even more phenomenal. As the gymnast (and myself) were coming to grips with the Sensei teachings, the implementation and development of said teachings by the gymnast was remarkable

To see her land this final effort after many close failed attempts as we were packing away was truly magnificent. As 3hrs ago she stood puzzled on an air track facing a block.

Stunning development Warrior. The future looks bright.

A Strange thing happened today…

Sensei at Work

If you have ever stood and watched an experienced person executing the task that they have mastered. There’s a mesmerising effortless ease in their execution of that task. You feel drawn in to watching the conclusion of their creation because each progression is seamless, to an extent where your compelled to see the finished article of beauty.

A thing of beauty by coach and gymnast

Today was one of those days!

In 60 minutes I witnessed a Coach perform that artistry. Pulling out preps from the 80’s, Nicky used a matrix of biomechanical inputs and obstacles that confused the spectating coaches.

When a block was placed on the tumble track in the embryonic stages of progressions the final outcome was not evident. However like one those upside down paintings it was one of those Wow…I get it now moments.

Stunning Coaching. Stunning development. Stunning day’s learning.

Osu Sensei
