Acro Jam Podcast Remastered! Episode 01: Niko

Who better for our first Remaster than the man himself?

Hey guys here is the first of our re-released episodes! We want to provide the best podcast we can. We decided to re-do the sound engineering of some of our early episodes so you can enjoy!

If you have already heard this episode with Niko, feel free to skip it and enjoy our most recent episodes here or re-listen and enjoy this wisdom!

Niko Douwes, co-founder of Partner-acrobatics, an international acrobatics teaching phenomenon, one of the OGs of Dutch Acrobatics and organiser of the Pre-Con to the Dutch Acro Convention.

With 28 years of training and teaching under his belt, Niko is an incredible teacher and the kind of guy who will level up your acro skills in an afternoon. If you are looking to take your training further and hone in on how you can improve whether as a base or flyer, we highly recommended tracking this man down and locking in some training time with him!

We are grateful we were able to sit down and share his wisdom, and excited to be able to share it with you.
