    Default Just one thing?

    If you were an instructor for a rope rescue class, what would be the one thing you would be adamant that your students learned?

    thanks

    that laws of physics are one of the few absolutes in the world of rigging.

    Yup. Have them at least recognize which analytical concepts play a role in how we rig.

    To take more than just one rope class. Learn other, maybe better, safer or more efficient ways to do things. Only having one play in the playbook leads to being unable to adapt to a dynamic enviorment.
