Competition Prep

10989519_463325590497649_1418489069348089588_nSometimes it’s hard for students (particularly those with limited schedules) to find time to work on their own specific game because the regular instruction-led classes have a set rotating curriculum intended to expose students to a wide swath of techniques. While this is important for breadth of knowledge, it is also important for you to find time to further hone the techniques you will use in times of pressure. The Competition Prep class was designed to help you further develop your feel, timing, and speed for your “go-to” moves.
