Re: [Punky_Monkey] student with weights?

I have no problem putting weights on a person who needs them. You are very light, and will end up using weights on most RW jumps.

I have been an Instructor since like 1994 and a RW coach for a long time.

I don't recomend the weights that go inside a Jump Suit for ANYONE. But I have put Weights on a light butt, after I *first* put a big JS on myself.

You used weights in the tunnel, and on your 23rd jump with no problems.

If it was your first jump *ever* then I might not recomend them, but at your level (And I know something about your level of skill)...I'd wear them.

She weighs about 105 pounds for those that don't know her.

In reply to:
The problem lies in that since I have started jumping my coaches and instructors have always been about 5 feet below me.

I can think of one instructor that was not 5 feet below youWink
