Advanced Handstands and Canes
with Khazu Chan
This course will be offered only to pupils that have a stable, free-standing handstand.
The techniques, shapes and poses to be studied and practiced all originate from the traditional performance art form, Mongolian Contortion and hand balancing.
We will be honing in on and extensively applying drills that further the handstand by training:
-One Arm Handstands.
-Warm-up and Flexibility.
The goal is to increase overall endurance and the vocabulary of shapes in one’s handstand practice. This will also include better comprehension and ease while working on blocks and canes.
*Pre-requisite: A stable free-standing handstand.
