However, not everyone agrees as it could be seen as a pushing style! Quite confusing indeed. However after rea...

Re: Stroke length in relation to style

Hi All,

I think that's a very good idea! Maybe have two main categories, push + pull :D

Re: Teaching the jump roll?

Hi Paul, Oh that's a good one! Maybe the students thought it was a totally different shape? :laugh: It's always nice to see improvers/intermediates progress, especially when they 'really' want to learn. I know it took me almost a year and a half(!) to get consistently good with placing the anchor wh...
