PERFORMANCE COACHING with Klemen Bečan
23.09.2017 - 07.10.2017
Join Klemen Becan, one of the world most talented and natural climber, and Rockbusters for PRO-CLIMBERS Coaching. Get your climbing to another level and knock down your hardest route with us. Suitable for climbers CONFIDENT LEADING.
There is nothing like learning from the best, which is why we've added Klemen Becan to the Rockbusters coaching program. Well known for onsite climbing, sending new routes and completing extremely difficult moves, Klemen still climbs for enjoyment of the challenge rather than the achievement of reaching the top. As the first to climb many difficult routes, such as Joe Mama (9a+/5.15a), he is very well regarded in climbing circles.
And he'll be sharing his enthusiasm, approach and knowledge by hosting a Rockbusters Master Class Coaching week, for just eight climbers. Using personalised coaching, one-to-one sessions,video analysis and plenty of time on the face, Klemen will help take your climbing to the next level.
The Klemen Becan Master Class Coaching follows our performance coaching schedule below, but with Klemen as the head coach leading the Rockbusters crew.
Are you looking to maximize and develop your climbing skills? Of course you are, who isn’t and that’s why you’re on our site, right? Well, you’re in luck because that’s exactly what our Coaching Programme offers. We’ll help you to improve grade and through better technique no matter what your starting level.
We focus on balance and movement, which helps both your physical and mental development. Whether you’re a complete rookie or an experienced cranker, you’ll notice a rapid improvement once we’ve analysed and boosted your technique.
Increase your confidence and performance through plenty of practice and consolidation at each level. This allows you to head home having gained the most possible from your trip. Climb higher, faster, stronger and better. That’s what we’re all looking for on the face and in life.
Here’s a little look at what to expect when you join Rockbusters Coaching Programme.
Focusing on footwork, you will learn how to work with your balance, finding the most efficient and effective way to move on the rock (leading comfortably F5 or more).
You will experience a wide range of techniques and skills in practice, which will increase your confidence and performance while climbing overhangs. You’ll develop skills to help you handle climbing steep rocks, save energy and climb more confidently and efficiently (leading comfortably F6c or more).
On-sight / red point
This part of the course is well-suited to climbers who are confident enough with their balance, foot work and overhang technics, and who want to focus on more challenging routes (leading F6c and above).
As well as building confidence, strength and taking on some tough climbs, this is a Rockbusters course so you can also expect a hefty dollop of fun. We love what we do and that really comes across in all our tours and programmes. We like to party almost as much as we like to climb, so get ready to have a blast on and off the face.
