This years Champs was both incredibly exciting and incredibly sad. Talk about a roller coaster of emotions and I thought last year was bad enough.
After the weekend I had so many lovely messages and there was this replay doing the rounds of one of my jams from the game against Gotham. Which actually added to the emotional roller coaster for me. On the one hand I was very happy that I had managed to get my training into game play and on the other it was a constant reminder that it wasn’t enough and of our failures across the weekend.
But I don’t want to be all doom and gloom! So instead I would like to share with you some of my training from the lead up to champs and discuss a few of the passes in that video (that I must have seen a million times now).
If you haven’t see it you can find it here.
I was a little uneasy of this at first because I certainly didn’t want to come across as being all big headed and look at me look at me, honestly that no what I am doing here.
But after discussing it with a couple of friends I realised its exactly what I would love to see as a skater from other skaters so here I go.
The next three blog posts I will break down the skills I use to make the pass and how I had developed that in training.
Juking at speed
The first pass I am going to discuss is not the best in the video but in the moment it was exactly what I had been working on in training.
So this pass I am using a juking at speed pattern that I had trained a lot and here I discuss how and why in the following video:
I hope you enjoyed this post tune in next week for the second in this series.
