You want it hard and bad… there it is, the Body Positioning Class
- Body Positioning Class – 03/03/2019 – 9:00 am-4:30 pm – 23 spots are left – $139.00
We just finished another Cornering Day 2 class, and I am always surprised what kind of quantum jumps my students are taking.
Amazingly, they feel calmer, relaxed and actually “slower”. What they feel is the potential what they’ve been missing out for so long. Since Day 1, they went through lots of major subjects on and off the track: Body positioning, viewing technique, all types of lines, real counter steering, uber-steer, emergency braking, clutch less up shift, downshift pattern and gear choice… all of it in a logic order and designed for maximum learning effect. That’s it?!… No, there is even more to come- even things like Trail Braking.
I so love seeing their smiles when they finished their session and finally got it. That means the world to me!

It actually amuses me to see the huge amount of attention other schools, books, forums, and videos spending on the subject called ‘the perfect body positioning’ for street riders. Glancing over to what MotoGP riders like Marc Marquez performs on TV- must be good for the Redwood Rd in the SF East Bay.
If it doesn’t look like Marquez… It’ll be damned as ‘crossed-up’ and some rookie rider who was proud showing his first hanging off pic’s will be scoffed by
Tons of tips are available on the internet. Some are good- some are bad… real bad.
Actually so bad, that it might end up in a disaster when you follow half-knowledge people. Advice number one… don’t listen to someone on a forum who thinks that using the rear brake makes more sense today as it made sense 20 years ago…. no- it still doesn’t make sense, because rules of physics don’t change. I understand that all of these “good” advices sound plausible for the newbie, and especially this is why you should spend less time listening to them.
If you are all set for the new riding season comes down to three factors;
1) riding experience; The experience (and this includes also close calls, crashes, and tons of feeling) is the only thing can’t be taught, but all of it makes the rider. You gotta go through this on your own.
2) knowledge; Can be taught in schools (there are good and bad ones), videos (not on youtube though), or books (good source)… and you’ll learn only if you admit to have to learn- even if you think you’re a heck of a rider. I’d prefer a school, because reading about climbing is kinda different as really hanging on the edge of a cliff Read more
