I know that we are on volleys right now but in between trying to practice them I had another go at Lesson II.

Russel, that's looking very good.

When you're choreographing your life, sometimes you have to dance with the music you're given.

Well done Russell, your combo looks very fluid and accurate!
I also liked your overhead horizontal combo and you did a fantastic job keeping both cracks on the horizontal plane!

All the best

Thanks guys. The change hands crossover in particular took a lot of practice for me before it started feeling right. Bearing in mind there's always room for continual improvement, I feel like I learned a lot from this exercise.

Flemming, I agree. I've been reading Ron Edwards book on how to make whips and in one section it refers to whip cracking and how it is not the kind of thing that can be taught with pictures. You just have to practice.
However I've found these challenge threads and everyone's contributions including yours motivating and beneficial.  Thank you for that everyone smile and thank you Robby for making the exercise.

Enjoy your Sunday and keep crackin'!

Looking good, Russell!

Common sense is now so uncommon that it should be officially reclassified as a super power...

Russell, that's all coming along very well. (I find it a bit dark to see very clearly; nevertheless....)

Hi Robert smile I was just thinking about you yesterday smile
Thank you sir.  I think I need a camera person to film the video for me or find a better location. Sorry about the lighting issues.
Welcome back!
