"The entire class touched upon important useful tips including shortcuts. The fact that we practised it along with the trainer was a useful way to learn as we go. It was fast-paced but not boring. There were important tips shared by teacher Simo, and he's extremely patient. Really designed for beginner's level without being over-bearing."
