ULRIK ON HANDS
Have you always wanted to do a handstand, but you are not sure where to start?
Maybe you can do a handstand but the balance is inconsistent and your form has room for improvement?
Or are you looking to begin your one-arm journey?
Join Ulrik as he visits Sudden Movements to host a series of Handstand workshops in March 2023!
Ulrik is with us for 3-days and will be teaching a series of handstand workshops from beginner to more advanced. You will learn some of the most effective drills that will enable you to balance in a straight line – eventually taking you towards skills such as the one-arm handstand.
MORE ABOUT ULRIK
Ulrik is a self-thought Norwegian 30 year old handbalancer who started training handstands in his early 20’s. He was stiff, lazy and afraid of kicking up into a handstand, and can therefore relate to the many struggles in learning this skill.
Ulrik has coached handstand workshops world wide in person and online since 2016.
There will be 3 workshops based on your level:
One two-day beginner and intermediate workshop for 2.5 hours each day and one, one-day advanced workshop for 2.5 hours.
To get the most from Ulrik, we recommend that you attend both workshops i.e. two beginner or two intermediates. The topics delivered on each day will be different.
