Class Descriptions

Rope Dart 101:  Spins 

This class will focus on the fundamental aspects of Rope Dart play!  Learn the beginner secrets that will assist in understanding the Rope Dart at its very foundations!   Students will be introduced to spins, footwork and terminology. Training methods and best practice philosophy will also be covered.

Rope Dart 102: Shots 

This class will build on the previous class. Here, students will be introduced to ‘Shots’, which are projections of the Rope Dart using various body joints (elbow, knee, foot)!  Once an understanding of shots is acquired, students will be encouraged to combine Spins from the first class with Shots to perform Spin-Shot combinations! Training methods and best practice philosophy will also be covered.

Rope Dart 103: Wraps

This class builds on the previous class. Here students will be introduced to ‘Wraps’.  A wrap’s inherent appearance makes the player look as if they are tied up – however, the ‘knots’ are an illusion!  Once understanding of wraps is acquired, students will be encouraged to combine all they’ve learned to create Wrap-Spin-Shot combinations!  Training methods and best practice philosophy will also be covered.
