TBBF Always in Flow – Online / Live Trainings for Free: Get Ready for XPlay, Session 2

We are taking our Zoom offer, “TBBF always in flow”, to the next level.

So far we have already started on forms by Olga Ardasheva and Irina Rusavina. This block of 6 sessions covers the discipline XPlay (also known as Multiplay).

The trainings take place on Thursdays at 7:30 PM CET. The second block with Irina started on February 10th. During these 6 sessions she teaches us her artistic creation “Heaven & Earth”. You could not participate in the first session or would like to watch the recording?

After the “Latina Form” by Olga Ardasheva, in this block we will switch from BailongBall forms to Xplay. Again, this block consists of 6 sessions, in which Philippe Marty will show us basic techniques, as well as advanced techniques.

Teaching XPlay via Web is of course a “special challenge”, considering the missing playing! And yet – Philippe has impressively demonstrated in his first session how basic techniques can also be practiced alone. With your own momentum or with the help of a wall – preferably windowless, in order not to distirb the neighbors ;-). Of course you can also ask another person for assistance – maybe the neighbor can throw a few balls?
