RAIDER ON-LINE TRAINING
The videos below have been compiled to graphically and in great detail show many of the more commonly asked questions about knots and other important Raider items. Most of these seem to revolve around the Rope Bridge event. While there are literally DOZENS of knots that are safe and effective, only small handful of knots are authorized for use at the Raider Nationals. These are CLEARLY OUTLINED within the Raider Nationals Event SOP. These permissible knots are the most popular in Raider and are covered in detail in the military manual in use for the event. Using these few rope ties allows our judges to concentrate on safe and proper rope execution of a few safe anchors.
Please enjoy these videos & photos, put together by long time Raider expert & Raider Nationals Judging Supervisor COL Ken Wade, USA Ret.
