Undoubtedly you have to go to Russia for the "best" schools! But that does not mean that you have to go there to learn flexibility and RG discipline.

What you learn is over to you; a teacher/trainer can facilitate your learning, but what you achieve is really up to you. You need dedication and discipline to work hard!

You could start working on oversplits. Just do the splits with your front leg elevated on something like a book. Don't start with anything too heigh though. To start probably a few inches is good. When that gets easy, use something heigher. You should go to rsg.net there's a message board there with more people that can really help you out. Most people on this board dont actually do rg...

good luck!

Apparatus technique, apparatus technique, apparatus technique. Really. You can't do RG without it, but you can be fairly good with "normal" flexibility if you have good strength, especially in your legs.
