Students final evaluation is performing an underwater blackout rescue.
.

They must dive down to me, grab me under my arm, assist me to the surface. While taking me to the surface they must watch my airway. If I release air from my mouth they have no more than 2-3 seconds to close my airway shutting mouth, and pushing my maks on my face and take me to the surface.
.
.

From there, they must put me on my back, perform the switch up move, remove my mask, perform blow, tap, talk, if no response, provide 2 rescue breaths, if no response, call for help and provide 1 breath every 5 seconds and tow to the boat.
.
.

That's a lot of work! If it's not right, then they hear the most common thing I say during a course, "Do it again!" .

I’ve basically finished filming the Road Map to Frenzel video series, will likely make some small adjustments before it goes live though. At this point its 13 videos with over 2 hours of content covering every single thing I know about teaching frenzel. .
.

I’ve done over 500 individual 1 on 1 Skype sessions teaching people how to do frenzel since 2011.
.
.

The Road Map to Frenzel video series will be accessible via Immersion Freediving Inner circle. The Inner Circle is member only section of the website. You will be able to purchase the road map to frenzel video series at the store and then get your user name and password emailed to you so you can access the videos on the website. .
.

This is what I call an interactive video series. At the end of each video you will be directed to different videos based on if you were able to accomplish the step or if you have a problem. That way each student will get the information they need based on what is happening with them.
.
.

The video series basically follows the exact step by step process I use when teaching frenzel.
.
.

Now comes the had part of integrating this with my website and store.

Filming a video on the dive reflex to go along with most recent column I wrote for @spearingmagazine . New issue is shipping out this week which includes the holiday buying guide.
.
.

Hot tip: take the buying guide circle all the stuff you want in red marker and leave it open on the significant others side of the bed. It worked for us as kids I’m sure it will work for us as adults.

The number #1 rule in freediving is protect the airway.

The
Here you can see Ricardo having a mock loss of motor control.
.
We are evaluating can the student correctly handle this situation by protecting the airway.
.
.

The studnet's hand is there so that IF Ricardo blacked out and fell forward, his airway would be unable to go into the water.
.

The #1 rule in freediving in protect the airway. If your buddy is 50ft down the reef trying to shoot a bigger fish than you, I assure you they are unable to protect your airway.

Safe freediving is so simple you can sum it up in 3 hashtags.

When I made the decision to start freediving and spearfishing there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to take a course to better prepare myself for this challenging sport.
.
At this years Blue Water Expo, I was informed by several people, if you wanted to “learn from the BEST” Ted Harty with Immersion Freediving was the way to go.
.
At the expo Immersion was having a contest for their 4-day intermediate course, and lucky for me.. I won! .
The course was much more than I could have ever imagined. Not only does Ted show you the physical aspects of freediving but the psychological and physiological effects on the body.
.
.

The most important part of the course is the safety instruction that you receive. I feel 100% confident that if one of my buddies needs my help, I’ll be able to assist them and even save a life. .
.

I have never felt more comfortable in the water. I recommend his class to both beginner and seasoned divers. Plus, he makes mean bbq. .

Image this, your buddy comes up from a dive blacks out and then starts sinking down to the bottom of the ocean.
.
.

How confident are you that your buddy would survive that experience.
Do you know what do to?
.
.

Are you even close enough to do anything? .
.
If you are 50-100ft away from your buddy when they surface then its pretty much already over.
.
.

Freediving instructors are all over the place now. If not my class at least take someone's freediving class and learn how to save someone if they were to black out.
.
.

If you think you know your limits, are in-tune with your body, and would just come up before you would black-out, please take the time to read this article I wrote from Spearing Magazine. It has actually video footage of 2 spearfishing blackouts, and explains what is going on @ Immersionfreediving.com/blackout link in bio.
.

Dive safe out there, it's not even that hard.

Proper streamlining is extremely important in freeidiving and is something that most freedivers and spearfisherman pay little attention to.
.
Water is 800 times denser than air, so the amount of surface area you have to push through the water makes a huge difference. .
.

Every dive in the ocean I will be making adjustments to your form, all in an attempt to reduce your drag so its takes less work to do the dive. Let's be honest, I'm lazy so I want to position my body so that I have to do the least amount of work.
.
Tighten up your form, do less work, increase your capacity as a diver.
.

Here you can see a student starting a personal best deep dive with an efficient entry.
.
Your entry is one of your defining characteristics as a diver. You do it on every single dive.
.
You can either do it as efficiently as humanly possibly or you can be inefficient, make yourself go down at an angle, and ultimately limiting bottom time.
.
.
Because all my courses have 2 three hour pool session (way more than most classes) my students get the benefit of mastering and polishing skills as opposed to being introduced to them quickly (checking off the box) and them moving onto something else.

As an instructor with 12 years of full time teaching experiecne I can assure you,

Boat briefing. .
.
Students get a very thorough briefing as the boat heads up the new river. .
.
Students are told what the game plan is as well as the most common mistakes they will make in water, hopefully to stop them from happening.

The ride out to the ocean goes through some of the most expensive real estate in the USA. The houses and yachts are crazy. .
.
I refer to that whole area as the place where all the boat captain and Freediving instructors live :) .

From: @immersionfd " Shot from my last dive down to 70m (230ft) during #DejaBlue8. I had a blast being down here for 3 weeks.
.
.
I had just as much fun diving for me as I did watching my students smash PB's and break national records.
.
.
.
Kathy and I are on the boat today breathing deeply and often while cheering everyone on. I'll jump in the water to coach my students when they surface to make sure they get the white cards they deserve.
.
.
When we get back Kathy and I one weekend off and then my busiest teaching season to date starts. Will be doing 5 course per month till November. Gotta be careful what you wish for.

Here you can see a firefighter performing a blackout rescue.
.
.
The number 1 rule in Freediving is protect the airway. When someone blacks out in the water the body knows that if it takes a breath now, it will get water in the lungs violating the number 1 rule in Freediving. .
.

When babies are born if they are not breathing the doctors and midwifes are trained to blow across the eyes as it creates a breathing response. .
.
When you blow across the ruses of a blacked out freediver the brain recognizes its no longer underwater and its safe to breath. This is why a strong breath across the eyes generates a fast breathing response.
.
.
In my classes I always want to explain why it is I'm having student do something and why what I'm saying works.
.
.
Learn these lifesaving rescue skills and take a Freediving class. If not mine, any class from a recognized agency. .
.
Be prepared and confident to take care of your buddy if they were to black out.

Here you can see students learning about breathing.
.
.
They learn not only to take a bigger breath, they specific breathing techniques that allow them increase their bottom time and feel more comfortable at depth.
.
.
Student typically repeat these exercises 15 times in the classroom in order to make sure they stick.
.
As an instructor I know the repetition fixes everything and this is one of the reason my classes are longer. This is time well spent as I've had many a spearfisherman complain that even a year after the course they can hear my voice in their heading counting the breath up as they are out diving.
.
.
My past students know my favorite thing to say is, "Do it again!" .
.

Students learn to take the biggest breath of their life in my classroom sessions.
.
.
They learn to use their diaphragm, chest, shoulders, then neck.
.
.
Want more bottom time? Take down more fuel. You rib cage is constricting how big a breath you are taking. By taking a breath my way you are maximizing the size of the cage therefore increase the fuel you take donw and your bottom time as well.
.

Here you can a student exhaling the last few feet from the surface. .
.
Most Freedivers hold their breath till the surface, once they surface they exhale then inhale. This means you can't put oxygen into the system until you exhale.
.
.
By exhaling the last couple of feet now as soon as your airway hits the surface you put oxygen in the system. This gets oxygen in the system 2-3 seconds faster than the other way.
.
.
The difference between a loss of motor control and a black out 2-3 seconds.
So on your next dive trip consider implementing this procedure that I teach all my students.
.
.
Comment or tag a diver that you think doesn't know about this.
Dive safe its not even that hard!

Here you can see what safe breath holding in a pool looks like.
.
.

As the student is surfacing his buddy is close enough to grab, and coaching them through proper recovery breathing.
.
.

It's very frustrating to keep having pools tell me I can't teach Freediving classes in their pools because Freediving is dangerous.
.
.
Yes people do die in pools from holding their breath, because the people doing it have no training and are not following any sort of safe Freediving practices. They would learn how to do these things in Freediving classes. .
.
Because pool are shutting us down its harder for people to get access to Freediving education which would reduce the number of fatalities. Not a fan of how the aquatics industry is handling this issue.
.
.

Any time your holding your Freediving have a buddy watching you when you surface, who is close enough to grab you and has training in Freediving rescue techniques.

Here is a student's last dive with Immersion Freediving.
.
.

On their last dive I give the students the oppurtunity to do a fun dive. They can either bomb for the plate or just do a relaxing shallow dive and enjoy how relaxed they feel at depth.
.
.

After seeing me blow some bubble rings the students wanted to try themselves.
.
.

Clearly I am better at teaching Freediving than I am at teaching bubbles rings, but I'm working on it.

All of my courses have 2 three hour pool sessions. This is much more than typical Freediving courses.
.
.

I spend a lot of time and do serval types of drills in order to teach proper kicking.
.
.
How you kick identities you as a diver. You either kick well like pictured here or you don't. Very few students come to the pool with great kicks.
.
I teach them how to use the whole leg to kick, not just their knees. I teach them its important to get the kick in front of the body as well. Most people's kick is behind their body which makes them go down at an angle.
.
.
I also teach the importance of how the position of your ankle and toe effect the kick. .
All of this extra pool time makes my courses longer and I assure that is time well spent.

More time = better results.
