Cheryl shared how ‘aggression’ is a form of healthy passion used to attain goals which made perfect sense.

I’m still reasonably new to dragonboating and trying to find my style having had so much varying techniques passed onto me LOL - they really are super useful! Pretty sure I’ve watched all your vids now, they’re just great so thanks for all the time and effort you put into them, it’s beyond appreciated
