Student Down

A couple of weeks back Cable was out practising with Mike and Max. They we’re working on a follow the leader style run with Cable taking the lead through balancing, small precisions, wallruns and vaults. It was all going smoothly max and mike we’re keeping up happily when disaster struck. Mike was balancing on a thick but rounded rail, when his foot slipped catching his other leg and sending him face first towards the merciless concrete below. Landing chest/chin first with an almighty crashing sound set Cable and max running over to see a winded and blooded Mike looking dazed. After a few frantic minutes he caught his breath and composure and decided it might be a good time to go home insisting that Max and Cable stay and practise, but as you can imagine that put an end to the day. A couple of days later he called us and only then did we find out the severity of the fall. An X-ray revealed he had fractured his jaw and needed it wired and would be out for at least six weeks!! Despite that he hasn’t lost enthusiasm and still comes out, and often has to be reminded of his injury to keep him from training. This is a big reminder to anyone that all it takes is a moment of distraction to have serious consequences. Students please always keep this in mind, accidents happen! Keep you updated. Wishing you a quick recovery from the Saiyans!
