Warrior’s Way Falling & Commitment Clinic

Warrior’s Way Falling & Commitment Clinic  by Arno Ilgner and Jon Richard — Thursday February 2 (6-10pm) — $99 gym members / $119 non gym members

All participants will receive: A free laminated reminder card, a reference pdf on all exercises, free follow-up email lessons, and discounts from WW sponsors BlueWater and Evolv.

This clinic addresses fear of falling and improving commitment. We'll do falling, movement, and resting exercises and apply all learned skills to a challenging route. We'll do this in small increments creating appropriate progressions for each individual student. You'll leave with a structured method for taking appropriate risks with diminished fear.

You’ll learn:

  • To fall safely
  • To give a cushioned belay
  • To distinguish between no- and yes-fall zones
  • How to engage no- and yes-fall zones
  • To break a climb into smaller risk events
  • Better risk assessment
  • How to rest effectively
  • To improve breathing
  • To trust the body
  • To create flow and momentum
  • To commit more deliberately
  • To reduce fear

Student Prerequisites: Minimum 6 months climbing experience; Climb a minimum of 5.9 in the gym without falling or hanging; Being able to lead climb is not required, however, if students want to lead during the clinic they must get lead certified at the gym PRIOR to the clinic date.

Equipment Needed: Harness, shoes, and belay deviceo; A rope and draws; A helmet is recommended, if you have one.

Reservations required! Contact Atlanta Rocks! to register and for further details.

Happy New Year!

A Happy New Year to all! We hope that your resolutions include training harder and freeing your mind for specific goals and achieving them! Climb On!
