Practical Guide of Physical Education (1912) by Georges Hebert, English Translation

So I was digging for books around the net and, just by coincidence, noticed Herbert's name on one of the titles.



Turns out it's the 92-page version of his guide to physical education. APK posted their own 30 page version, but it leaves out a bunch of chapters this one has, and sports an inferior translation.



edit: I'm told that the complete work is over 500 pages, though, so we're gonna have to hold out a bit longer for the whole thing.

Saratoga jam review

Yesterday I attended my first BAPK jam with Fyrel and Dogwithrabiez. They were both extremely friendly and patient with my lesser degree of skill, and really weren't afraid to point out my errors and help me improve.



We started out with a bit of chatting, and moved on to vaults, then went to wall runs, balance, and flow. We wrapped up with some really intense QM training and did a short run. What's amazing is that I was really pushed my limits in each of these techniques, and… Continue
