Volume 2 (Level 2) picks up where Volume 1 (Level 1) leaves off. It starts with entries into crossback straddle, the pinnacle skill that is a milestone for a beginning Level 2 student. Then, the book ventures off into climbs that build of the foundational climbs. For example, at Level 1, students learn the basic climb and the Russian climb. In Level 2, they start to turn and twist and stuff-it and other sorts of variations on the foundational climbs. They also start working on inverted climbs such as single and double knee climbs, which are clearly Level 2 as they require strong inversions.
Next, the book covers what I call "double catcher's" aka "crochet your legs and then add thigh wraps." True to my heart, the book is heavy in theory and you'll learn just why I call things certain names and how to approach them in ways that help students understand the wrap, not just how to do it. Students are encouraged to learn through critical thinking through the use of puzzles and questions scattered throughout the book.
The book goes on to the most brainy chapter I've ever written in the "hip & thigh series." You'll find charts and webs and connections that will blow your mind. I included never-before-seen skills that I created to help teach the theory of connecting these skills. This is my favorite topic of the book!
Next are the classics of open and closed catcher's wraps (opposite and same side wraps), as well as s-wraps. These help to lay the foundation for the final two skill chapters: introduction to belay theory and introduction to drops. Level 2 is when a student is introduced to their first of each drop category: their first slack drop, their first dive, their first roll, etc. The drop progression is very important and this book will help guide you through it.
This book truly has it all! This is a must-have textbook for all teachers and students of aerial fabric.
