If you are unable to get to a teacher to learn the Erle
Montaigue system, or you want some instruction and advice directly from Eli,
we now have a distance video learning program.
It is highly recommended that all wtba members/instructors have their training looked at by Eli at least once a year.
Of course if your main teacher is a wtba senior than this is not so important.
A senior instructor will notice things in your training that could really boost your way up the ladder.
If you only train via the videos and maybe get to a workshop once a year, then getting into this distance learning will really push your training forward.
Whether it's once a week, month, or even just once a year, it will really bring you out of the dark, you can even become an instructor like this.
The beauty is you can film yourself when ever you have the time, send it off, and wait for your corrections, no need to schedule a class time.
Or you can take a live class via Skype.
To take full advantage of this involves you learning what you want from our MTG
videos, then having your training corrected via video.
For a Skype class, you can just get in touch and book a class at a time that suites us both, please note Eli is now living in Queensland Australia time zone for Brisbane.
For a recorded video class you can take the following steps:
1. You choose a form or training method to work on; if you are unsure where to start you can simply ask Eli for advice on this.
2. You then make a short video of yourself training; this can be filmed with any device such as a smart phone. You can either just perform the thing you want corrected, or you can ask questions as well in the video.
3. Upload the video to either YouTube as an unlisted video, or to an online storage like DropBox, then send the link to the video and make a payment.
4. Eli will look over your video, mark down your errors, and then make a personal video explaining and showing in detail what you need to do to improve and send this back to you.
Eli will focus on your most major errors first, he will fit in as many corrections as he can in the time you have paid for, if he only has time to correct half of the video you have sent, then you can pay for another lesson to get the rest done.
When you have corrected these, you can make another video with your improved level of skill, then Eli will look at the more subtle errors in your form and start to give you advice on where you are going even if there are no technical errors, by advising you how to advance your training etc.
A one hour lesson for example will be made up of Eli watching your video and then making your corrections video.
The Recorded Video Lesson is one hour of Eli's time, he will divide it appropriately between looking at your form, checking for mistakes and making your corrections video.
Eli will get the video back to you within 7 days, usually a lot sooner, this just depends on work load.
A Skype class is one hour on Skype.
