Workshop Fragments

Virtually join Dave Wardman ( and I for over an hour of fragments from the workshop we taught together in Adelaide in October 2015. The workshop was presented to instructors and students at a Parkour facility, so was delivered in the context of assisting an already existing practice, so please bear this in mind when watching.

This video includes theory and exercises on the following topics:
- wrist, elbow and shoulder protection
- development of the spring quality in the arms
- various hanging exercises
- rib awakening
- swinging and brachiation basics
- pushing and pulling through the legs
- landing basics
- and more!

Shout outs to the following people for making this possible:
- Travis Ransom from Point A for hosting us
- Frazer for filming
- Simon Thakur for introducing me to many of the exercises and concepts I presented at this workshop

All of these people are most excellent people, and you should support them by going to their classes or hiring them to do things.

Craig Mallett

Craig is a principal member of Physical Alchemy. He was subject to many of Dave’s early experiments, which broke him out of stasis and propelled him into becoming a dedicated student of the Da Xuan Daoist tradition. He teaches within Physical Alchemy and is also the instructor of the Da Xuan School in Sydney. Prior to this, he studied the traditional Chinese martial arts of Xin Yi Liu He Quan and Cha Quan under Dapeng Wang for a decade as well as many other modalities of movement, strength, flexibility and general physical development. 

Many of the courses found on this page bear the Aware Relaxed Connected logo and website.  This was Craig's former website, which was merged with Physical Alchemy when Craig and Dave joined forces. ARC no longer exists but all the important aspects can now be found here on the Physical Alchemy website and tutorial page.
