    I never thought of that. I figured since my arms had to hang loose, it didn't really matter. But I will try to keep them near my ribs.

    Can't wait to try this out...

    My 2 cents: wall squats are a poor drill before swings - they teach you all the things that you shouldn't do during a swing: erect torso, minimal hip hinge, maximal knee bend.

    I think thats one of the reasons most people (including myself) cannot learn how to swing without instruction.

    IMO if they do another edition of the ETK, improving the swing chapter should be the #1 priority.

    I always looked at ftws to teach me how to move from the hips first. However, I do like the touch the wall drill in Dynami.

    I would wholeheartedly recommend Tracy Reifkind's book "The Swing!" The chapter on swing basics is worth it's weight in gold. I honestly think it would shorten the learning curve for beginners.

    Yeah, but I still feel they interfere with the swing pattern way too much to make them useful.

    Even RKCs admit that very few people do the swing correctly prior to actually meeting with an RKC - this is an indicator that the instruction on the swing is not achieving its goal, which is to get people doing swings correctly without other external instruction.

    However, I do like the touch the wall drill in Dynami.
    Agree, great drill, I think it captures the hip hinge pattern a lot better.

    In addition to Dynami, "Mastering the Swing" is a good resource, especially for beginners:

    I agree with Stovin, "Mastering the Hardstyle Swing" is a great learning tool that you can repeatedly go back to and pick up new things. Even veteran comrades are always trying to improve their swing.
