Wait: The Art and Science of Delay - Fast Moving Sports

Constantly reading books and stumbled onto this piece that is very applicable to roller derby. A sport where almost every second you must respond to changing conditions.

"Visual reaction is about the same amount of time for all of us. Most people react to stimulus in 2/10s of a second and no faster. What makes top athletes unique is their ability to get their bodies to react faster which, in turn, allows them to WAIT to respond at the perfect moment. So because they have more time opened up between seeing and doing. They have more time to prepare."

Chapter 2 discusses this in far more detail. Definltely worth checking out if you are trying to push to the next level.

I Think We Need to Redefine Tornado Blocking

Denver’s footwork always impresses the heck out of me but this one-on-one blocking is just spectacular.

am i the only one that see’s the counter at 5 seconds or so in. her feet definitely stop moving in the correct direction and she takes a step backwards….

that said i find that this type of blocking is very useful when you are try to hold the jammer one-on-one.

bones gymnastics vs bones derby episode

randomly want to vent about the Bones episode that really gives an interesting insight into the athletic abilities in gymnastics but when it’s roller derby it’s all “ooh look at these girls fighting each other!”

Here’s a summary of “The Spark in the Park” where you can even see they brought in an Olympic gymnast!  Where was that kind of love for roller derby?
