I stand corrected. I simply misread that. Notwithstanding, there are numorous refernces in the SS litrature to overgliders and TI - all are respectful and polite mind! I tend to agree with earlier...

The SS forum contains a post by Adam Young in May 2009. He describes in detail why TI teaches an overgliding style (yep, he uses the term) and why this is a bad thing.

Personally I do think the term "overglider" is used by SS as a derogative term to deride TI. As Suzanne points out, this rift between the two camps may have something to do with blog posts by Ian a...
