Tumble comes to the BMC Climbing Coach Symposium!

Drawing on the playful training elements employed by the German national team, some of the session was straight out of the BBC's hit show Tumble. 

Functional Movement Screening (FMS) was also undertaken practically. Research has shown that FMS can help to predict the risk of injury, and so potentially of great use to coaches.
