Waterman Survival

Do you recall your worst wipe out or hold down where you experienced a strong urge to breathe?  This urge to breath is real and can be uncomfortable.  This urge combined with stress, anxiety and increased heart rate can lead to panic and blackout.  How much value would there be if you could extend the urge to breath longer and safely?   In the two day OWP Waterman Survival Course instructors teach students how to effectively their breath longer and be prepared to assist during a breath hold related emergency.  This is a classroom and pool course only.
