A word from our teachers

Laurent Boullet thinks that it’s important to display “normal” lessons. So it could be interesting for all people, not only teachers but also students, to see the common problems that we may meet on the daily basis.You organize your movements in your head mentally before you do it. When it’s mentally clear, you can do your motion much faster.
