Ive been training on the trapeze and lyra for a few years now but keen for a change and a challenge I decided to dip a very cautious toe into the world of rope/corde lisse.

Ive always been in awe of people who train on the rope because lets face it, it looks terrifyingly hard. Not only does it require brute strength it also requires a high tolerance for pain as the texture of the rope gifts you with all manners of burns, tears and bruises. This is before we even add in all the scary hands free drops. Its definitely the preserve of the tough skinned kamikaze daredevil

When I was at school, I can remember the evil sports teacher/crone Miss Miller asking us (A bunch of 11 year olds) to climb a rope without actually teaching us how to do it an interesting teaching methodology. As you can imagine her method wasnt a great success.

So it wasnt until I started taking trapeze classes that I was reintroduced to the dreaded rope where it was used as part of our strength and flexibility building conditioning exercises. I was taught for the very first time how to climb a rope and boy was it hard work trying to haul my tired body upwards whilst holding on with weak kitten arms and a death grip in a desperate attempt to avoid falling off and dying. How I hated my climbing

But then a strange thing happened. I got stronger and started to look forward to the rope!! Dont get me wrong, it never got easier, mainly because of the amount of times we had to climb the rope in one class, but I started to actually enjoy it!

So this formed part of my decision making process to push myself by taking rope classes. I also thought that it would mean that I could feel more confident doing work on the trapeze ropes use all parts of the equipment.

So far the classes have been tough and I have an assortment of rope artwork across my body to prove it particularly the bruise over my right hip which will not go. I came to rope with pretty limited skills like catchers, hip lock, foot locks, knee drops, girl rests in rope and thats pretty much it. Im now being introduced to straddle climbs, hip lock climbs, scissor climbs, salto drops, the propellor and many more

Its early days yet and I am frustrated feeling limited in what I currently can/cant do and Im trying to overcome my fear due to two falls in my first class but Im getting there and Im getting stronger so watch this space. Im wont say that I love my classes just yet but Im hanging on in there. Literally!
