Yea, I'm a bit worried about stuff like snatching without some input from someone who knows what they're talking about, but the Olympic lifts are so unpopular they don't seem to have a trainer in the whole of the Brighton area!

Was considering getting some money together & commuting for a few months to get the basics sorted, then maybe once a month, but then you need a gym that allows O-lifting (that's hard to find too!).
