Whip Basics- A Beginners Guide

Volume III

Following the pattern, this volume builds on what you will have learned in Volume Two.  Among other things, you will learn the Figure Eight Overhead, as well as doing body turns safely during complex routines.  You will also learn about wrapping not only inanimate targets, but safely wrapping people, when you're ready to work with a partner.  The cracks you've learned previously will be merged and extended into a 23 crack routine, and Robby will go into more detail on teaching and coaching, as well as covering making an informed decision when buying a whip.

Volumes I-IV in Individual Boxes

As with the Compilation listed above, here all four volumes are collected together, but they each have their own box.  This is still cheaper than buying them individually, but slightly more expensive than the single-box collection.  Of course, it also looks cooler on your video shelf this way.

Whip Basics- A Beginner's Guide

Volume IV

Whereas the first three volumes in the series focus on learning cracks and techniques, Volume Four focuses on maintenance and handling of whips.  You will learn how to get your Leather whips through the winter, how to make your own crackers and how to attach them.  Also, you'll learn how to change a worn out fall without cutting your whip ( If you don't have one with an English Eye...)   In addition, there is an overview of different types of whips, and Robby will show you how to stage a professional performance, whether you're doing a TV appearance, a live stage show, or just a BBQ, as Robby says, there's no excuse not to perform professionally.  Think about that fora moment- In this age of cell phone cameras, if you come off bad when you start performing, it could follow you around for a long time.  Don't give yourself a bad reputation, learn to do it right and have fun!
