Learn to thread your strap and prepare to take your practice to new places.
Set up Strap
Thread Tail through Little Loop (this is your Closed Loop *a*).
Thread Tail through Lock, starting from top, down through Slot 1.
Thread up through Slot 2, leave a loop underneath (this becomes your Flexible Loop *b*).
Thread down through Slot 3.
Find your true North. Think of the lock like an arrow with the point facing up when you thread.
If you're left handed flip the lock so the single slot (1) is to the right for easier threading.
To remember which slot is which, one is always by itself no matter which way you flip, and two is in the middle.
Mat slipping? Roll it sticky side out for extra grip.
