About

The BMC FUNdamentals 1 workshop covers the WHAT TO TEACH in climbing movement skills, plus some additional relevant information. 

 

The day is broken down to look in more detail at:

> effective group and individual warm ups

> effective and efficient weight transfer of the body while climbing

> digging into what we mean by "good footwork"

> maximising our use of handholds

> some signposting for those working with children 

 

Prowess Coaching is an official provider of these workshops and is highly qualifed and vastly experienced in the field of climbing coaching. FUNdamentals 1 is a one-day event and is a mix of classroom based and practical learning (as practical as possible) so bring your rock shoes and get ready to get on the wall! However don't expect us to be trying super hard. The focus is on teaching the basics to beginners and there is no minimum grade requirement. In the event of injury - or even if you choose not to climb - there is no requirement to climb at all, although we generally find most people are psyched to get on the wall. 

These workshops are stacked with useful information to help you with your clients (or even your own climbing) but are all delivered in a super relaxed, super chilled out environment and are generally very well received. 

More information is available on the BMC website

A resource pack including slides, course notes, downloads and links is included as part of the workshop. You'll receive a link and a password to browse at your leisure. 

 

This workshop is run by professional climbing coach, Pete Edwards. Pete has recorded more than 1000 boulder problems at over 130 crags in ten different countries over the past twenty years, up to font 7c+/V10 and with several first ascents up to font 7b/V8. He is Performance Coach trained and holds a Master's Degree in Elite Performance. 

 

Cancellation Policy

Circumstances change, things come up and occasionally people can't make it. It's understandable. If this happens to you, the sooner you can let me know, the better as I can hopefully fill the space with someone else. If you let me know two weeks before the session/course/workshop then I will issue a full refund. If you let me know between two weeks and one week before the session/course/workshop I will issue a 50% refund. If you let me know less than one week before the session/course/workshop then no refund will be issued. Remember you need to pay to secure your place on the course or your place may be allocated to someone else. If the course is cancelled by Prowess, a full refund will be issued.
