In early September I will be leaping aboard an aircraft with a spring in my step, as I will be off to see my friends in Seattle (again). The pretext for this merry jaunt is attending the awesome SwordSquatch event for the first time. This is the third Squatch, and for the last couple of years in early September my social media feeds have lit up with a cacophony of praise for this event, which makes me a) very proud of my students who run it and b) rather jealous that I didn't get to go.
This year the stars have aligned, and from September 7th-9th I'll be there, along with some really good instructors.
I'll be teaching the following classes:
- How to run a diagnostic drill (if you don’t know what the problem is, you can’t fix it)
- Distinguishing between technical and tactical problems
- Setting up corrective drills, specific to the problem
- Coaching practice
- Practising at the optimal rate of failure
