Extended Presentation – The Setter

Posted by

In 2012, I ran a five day seminar on The Setter. Five days, with theoretical and practical sessions making a total of about 40 hours give or take, means you can cover a lot of ground which we. These videos give a review of the information covered over the course of those five days, focusing on the theoretical component. The format of the seminar was highly oriented towards discussion. Topics were presented, or questions were raised and the ‘conclusions’ were reached through group discussion. The setters who were analysed were among the best setters of that time, including:
– Lloy Ball
– Lindsey Berg
– Pawel Zagumy
– Ricardinho
– Eleonora Lo Bianco
– Valerio Vermiglio

There are four videos of the powerpoint presentations available here. The videos include all the topics and the ‘conclusions’ drawn from the discussion, as well as all of the video material that was studied with some added 2021 commentary by me. The total ‘running’ time is 1:48 hours, however you will need to pause the video to take in all the information meaning there is a lot more value than the running time would suggest by itself. The technique video is over 60 minutes and is available as a standalone video.
