Friday: Connecting the dots
Whether you’re new to pole or already have some experience, we will be going over basic climbs, slides and combining tricks so if you feel a little out of your depth, it's ok, there are always plenty of regressions.
Pole Friendly shoes - Something with flat soles with as smooth a rubber base as possible. Good options are martial arts/wrestling trainers.
LOTS of layers it is important that lots of clothing is worn in Chinese Pole as the rubber can and will easily burn your skin if it is not protected by appropriate clothing. I would recommend 1x tracksuit bottoms 1x pair of jeans with no metal on them 1x long sleeve 1x hoodie minimum. Bonus clothes to bring: leotard/unitard, leggings, back warmer, tubi grips, spare hoodies jeans. It is very likely you will rip these clothes or at least make small holes/tears do not wear expensive clothing or things with sentimental value as you’ll be wearing them at your own risk of damaging them.
