Skills

As the name implies these classes are all about learning new skills or making your current techniques more effective. Starting with posture, hand position, balance and core power we will aim to develop sustainable, safe and efficient strokes. Wherever possible we will seek out a range of conditions for you to test your newly honed techniques
