The one arm launch and catch separated by a short air time. Brachiation is the practice of swinging like an ape from the hands. Besides requiring a certain oomph in the launch and precise timing and strong grip on the catch, there is also a deeper element of lightness that I am on the lookout for. Connection of the shoulders to the torso help take much of the strain out of this motion and allow me to keep the intention towards finding this lightness. I have plenty of specific preparatory exercises for swinging, and I also would probably get interested folks to do a good deal of jibengong before working on this motion with any serious intention. Control is necessary to prevent injuries of many kinds occurring. Probably wouldn't take too much more work for me to be able to do the whole row non stop. Next time!

This is why I love road trips. I saw a sign for a historical site so I decided to see what it was. Wasn't expecting to be the EBR 1 location!
Experimental Breeder Reactor I is a decommissioned research reactor and U.S. National Historic Landmark located in the desert about 18 miles southeast of Arco, Idaho. It was the world's first breeder reactor.
We've been ticking off a lot of bucket list items lately.
Snorkel the great barrier reef✔
Visit the northern most point✔
Not to mention how much we are loving tropical north QLD and all of it's amazing animals, including these gentle sea turtles. Thankyou to @oceansafaricapetrib for a fun day out on the reef.
