From theory to… the water
Applying theory to practical training in swimming pool and sea is made in complete safety. The process of the practical courses is pleasant and student friendly. We are by your side at all times encouraging you and correcting any mistakes or omissions. Thus, in a short time, you get acquainted with the underwater environment and manage to move comfortably. This is the only way to develop immediately and safely your skills.
Spearfishing. Seminars for success
The popular “adaptation of freediving techniques to spearfishing” is a series of theoretical seminars we offer to our students. In collaboration with a group of underwater diving instructors, we give the opportunity to previous and new students of freediving to experience the thrill of training in underwater fishing. Upon completion of the theoretical lessons, students can ask questions about underwater prey and fishing techniques. In 2 three-hour sessions, Tassos Chalaris along with top athletes will answer all your questions in an easy to understand way and share the secrets of locating and approaching quality underwater prey.
Underwater Filming. Watch and learn
The practical training also includes filming each student’s diving efforts. After careful study of your underwater videos (for approximately four hours), we identify the strong points, achievements and correct the mistakes while explaining simply and methodically. The student's improvement will be verified in the second practical exercise, thus confirming his substantial progress. Following each practical exercise, the student is given the video of his underwater efforts to watch and study on his own after the end of the training. During the practical courses, we provide CARBON blades to the students who do not own a pair, for best assessing and correcting their underwater technique.
