The Aerial Rope Manual Volume 1 by Rebekah Leach is a fantastic reference guide for teachers and students of beginner and intermediate aerial rope, aka corde lisse. It's co-authored with Rain Anya and Allie Cooper.
The Aerial rope manual helps you to learn basic and intermediate aerial rope tricks, though new tricks should always be attempted under the supervision of an experienced teacher. Only when you are comfortable with them should you practice corde lisse moves in your own training time and even then never alone.
This manual is extremely well organised, has almost 1000 pictures to illustrate over 75 corde lisse moves and techniques and each trick is described in detail. Even more than that, The Aerial Rope Manual contains plenty of enlightening theory; connecting wraps, uncovering major concepts behind each move and highlighting important teaching moment in common moves.
The Aerial Rope Manual is Rebekah's most dense book to date! It covers basic to intermediate tricks derived from the foundations of rope such as the hip key, footlock, S-wrap, opposite-side and same-side wrap. You’ll find over 20 climbs presented, as well as detailed progressions such as that of the double knee hang. Learn the different ways you can rotate around the rope into arabesque with a study of grip choices, and then apply the idea to rotate around the rope in toe climbs!
