OG Tumbling & Tricking Gathering

24th September 2022 16.30 - 20.30

OG Tumbling & Tricking Gathering

Are you ready to take part to an explosive event? 
We are so excited to announce our first London Tumbling and Tricking Gathering. We are also bringing two incredible athletes as special guests:

Kris Breadie from Scotland
Matúš Turanský from Slovakia

Join us for 4 hours of open floor session, learn some new creative tricks with our special guests and push your limits to the next level!

Spaces available: 30

Price: 
£30

Programme
The first 1h will be dedicated to a warm up and exploration of new movements and techniques, taught by our special guests.
The following 3 hours will be dedicated to Tumbling and Tricking, more or less like an open session, but with a difference: the floor will be on fire!

Requirements:

This event will have an open session format where, with the exception of the warm up and the mini workshop, there won’t be a structured system of drills like you would normally have in a class. The plan is to have a section of the floor with no mats, where you can explore combos and new movements freely, and a section with airtracks and landing mats. We will most likely put some trampettes for a bit, so that we can have fun with them too.
For the above reasons, we suggest joining the event if you are comfortable at training independently. Normally, if you are confident in performing most of the level 2 Tumbling skills, some connections, or you are comfortable with the Tricking Level 1 elements, you can certainly enjoy the event.

If you are not fully comfortable with all of them, but you still wish to be part of the event and see some amazing athletes in action, you are more than welcome to join.
Just remember to train within your limits!
