Warrior's Way Clinic Sept 2013

We are excited to offer another round of Warrior’s Way Clinics taught by Warrior’s Way instructor, Jeff Lodas! 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 student. You’ll leave with a structured method for taking appropriate risks with diminished fear.  For testimonials, a sample audio track and a video of one of Arno’s clinics, check out this link here!
