View Full Version : Breaking into IDP
11-19-2003, 09:30 PM
I discovered the wonderful world of ROSS back in 2001. Ever since then I acquired almost all the wonderful materials put out by Rmax and it has influenced every aspect of life from physical culture to academics to guitar playing. I am seriously contemplating joining the IDP. I would appreciate any advice breaking into the IDP or any interesting experiences anyone has had with the program.

One nice thing about the IDP is the depth to which you explore and internalize the material. It is one thing to be able to do yourself and something quite different to be able to effectively communicate the material to someone else in a properly structured training environment. There is a focus on creating a training environment conducive to rapid learning of the material.
As General Retuinskih says, "the purpose of ROSS is to share ROSS". If you ever intend to share ROSS with others, join the IDP right away. If you just want to take your study of ROSS deeper, the IDP will help you there too.
ROSS IDP camps are something that any ROSS enthusiast should experience. They are very challenging, very rewarding and very fun!!
Come on aboard, comrade!

I am planning on joining myself, based on my experiences with two gents in the program who I get to train with occasionally.
Hopefully I'll see you there next spring.

Thanks for the info guys.
So the IDP will be in spring. Does anybody know the details?

It is usually run in the middle of March, though I don't know if a weekend has been chosen yet for 2004...

As of about 2 weeks ago Coach Sonnon had not yet set a date for it

Participating in the IDP not only allows you to reach a higher level
of internalization of the material but also has a great self-discipline
value. You are guaranteed to train as often as max. summary
attendance of your students - as a student you can find an excuse
(too busy, too tired, etc.) As a coach you just have to be there.
If nobody attends (it happens in small groups) - you train anyway.
And when you are with the students (see "Maximology" series) you can not afford to be (and even look - which has a strong feedback to "being")
out of gas. Thus, whatever you condition is you have to find a path
to rationally use your internal resources for the training to proceed as if you're always fresh and razor-sharp. And that's what it is about -
to be capable to act and adapt to a variety of conditions in sport, combat,
work etc. In a role of a ROSS instructor you'll quickly learn how to suppress internal dialogue, self-pity, self-importance and all other
mental junk which prevents us from our top performance.
