Topic - Indoor spotting

Nick Allen - on 14 Jan 2013
I've had a debate with someone recently who thinks that indoor spotting is pointless.

I disagree, if I'm spotting its to guide a fall safely and minimise the chance of injury, we all know the pads can't completely save you.

It's even comforting sometimes to know that when I'm on a sketchy move in the gym that someone might be able to stop me stumbling upon landing.

In some cases it might be more dangerous (I.e taking a whipper from 4m up may mean you end up kicking some spotter in the head) but I think my point is generally valid. If I'm instructing then the last thing I need is a kid getting hurt and if I'm training I don't want my partner breaking her ankle.

I'm interested in the community's opinion on the matter
