CANCELLED? Ninja Rolling & Falling Workshop for Cyclists | Mission Dist.
Learn how to dive, survive, and return quickly to your feet (like the ninja you are) if you are ever unlucky enough to eat it while biking around town. This free two-hour workshop will teach you to do just that every first Sunday of the month at Mission Yoga.
EVENT UPDATE: As of June 2015 we have been unable to confirm if this event is continuing. Please contact Quantum Martial Arts first before attending.
Taught by Quantum Martial Arts teacher, Master Rachael Evans, the workshop offers cyclists the opportunity to practice falling in a safe, padded environment. Wear comfortable clothes.
Using techniques borrowed from Judo (“the gentle way”), you’ll practice dispersing energy as you hit the ground, avoiding direct impact on your joints and bones. Diving rolls for distance throws, hard rolls for close-range impact, side falls, and moving on the ground will all be covered.
Partner movement drills will improve your reflexes, increasing response time and honing the concept of living in the moment. Training awareness and focus help the smart city cyclist and weekend adventurer be prepared to make life-saving decisions instantly.
Disclaimer: Please double check event information with the event organizer as events can be canceled, details can change after they are added to our calendar, and errors do occur.
