Hala and Ilya Ilyin Technique Comparison

As a coaching exercise today, I made some side-by-side comparison images today between some training videos we took of Hala a few weeks ago and two side view videos of Ilya Ilyin. They turned out pretty cool so I decided to share them. I’m always amazed at how the quest for efficiency converges even on opposite sides of the world. Enjoy!
