interview with Rick McCharles

Jessica O’Beirne edits the best site for Adult Gymnastics. She interviewed me after my presentation at the B.C. Gymnastics Congress:

MG: How to you deal with overly-confident adult gymnasts? e.g. the ones who haven’t done anything in a long time but are sure they can still “throw” a skill or beginner who just want to “try” a back flip without learning the basics?

RM: Best practice is to go personally coach the adults that make you nervous. That works for me. Worst case, you must STOP dangerous drills. (Double forward somersaults into the pit, ‘gainer’ backward somersaults, etc.)
