Content & Methodology
We will analyse your activities by your own feedback, our observations and video footage. At the end of the course you will receive a report with an overview of your current level for each riding technique.
This you can use as starting point for free practice or as input for the next VIP course. You can daisy chain courses until you reached the desired level of skills.
With your input, level and requirements, combined with our first observations at the track we will compose a personal tutorial program with goals. If nessecary the program will be altered during the course. The riding technique which currently induces the highest risk will be the first subject to work at.
In this kind of sport risk is inevitable. Through awarness, the right mentality and counter measurements you will be able to mitigate risks for a great deal. We don't believe in learning by (painful) mistakes.
The tutorial program is structured and modular. We distinguish six riding techniques and four levels. Inside of that targets and practice assignments.
In this way we can serve anybody very specific in every phase of the learning proces.
We learn in phases and the human learning curve is capricious. With the intensive practicing and theory sessions, men needs time and rest (inc. sleep) for reflection and processing all new information. In practice the 3 day course proofs to be the most valuable. For a repetition a 2 day course is best suitable. During one day there is only a limited acquaintence possible with the Vabene methodology.
Our courses are mainly offered during events of other organisations. You need to register for the event as well for the course. We offer 1, 2, 3 or 4 day courses.
