There are no pre-requisites to join the instructor training camp though as this camp covered all three levels right up to Advanced, we recommend you are of a High Intermediate/ Pre-Advanced level to get the most out of it. You don’t need to do all the tricks in the Advanced course as the focus is on learning to break them down and deliver the technique points using numerous teaching methods (not just demonstration). You will need to demo just two Advanced tricks during your practical teaching assessment, some of the choices include: Jade or Aysha/ Elbow Aysha or even Iguana (you don’t have to Fonji or Russian Split don’t worry!)
