Skill Video: How To Roll A Kayak

As I progress as a teacher, my progressions adapt and change to the diversity of my students. It makes me revisit several of my previous ideas and build upon them. I have always had a how-come? approach to my teaching instead of a this is how it’s done, so do it approach.

If you break down the physics of a skill like rolling, you are hit upon all the important information a student needs to learn to understand, then execute the move. 

This video is an update on my previous roll video—it reviews previous concepts and builds upon them.
