Body Positioning Class for Sport Riders
Truly not just designed to make you look like Marc Marquez, or just for a picture on turn 2 at Laguna Seca Raceway–no, this is the full scope of Hanging-Off to be able to play an A-game. While mostly focused on mid-turn body positioning and knee-dragging, our class covers it all, from A to Z. Others might teach on what they believe- or saw which is supposed to be right, but your coach, Can Akkaya, was an international racing professional who knows what’s right and how to transfer that knowledge to his students.
- Track day riders of all levels
- Racers of all levels
- Sport bike street riders from upper intermediate
- Race, track, and sportbikes
Importance of doing it right
The geometry of modern sportbikes and their tires work in conjunction with the rider’s body weight distribution. This has evolved and developed over the last three decades in international motorsports. We’ve seen lots of misinterpreted priorities and wrongly taught techniques, which we decided to put to an end through this course. This subject is pretty ‘head-heavy’ so that it actually could extend a learning curve being taught wrong. Superbike-Coach has developed a class which clears up this subject, and is also extremely efficient because of its location. The Little 99 Raceway in Stockton, California gives our students and instructors great options to teach and learn. Coach Can Akkaya can observe and stop you whenever necessary, to give you feedback, drills, tips, and demos that you can immediately apply while he watches. It doesn’t matter ”how long” a track is, but rather how quickly your coach can deliver what he believes you need. Furthermore, the cost of being on a smaller track is significantly less and the risk of costly damage and injuries are lower.

How it works
The Body Positioning Class splits your time into a 60:40 track/classroom ratio, starting at 09:00 am and ending at about 04:30 pm. Sign up early since this once-a-year class has a maximum of 30 spots. After you book, we send you a questionnaire that you must fill out and return. We’ll then confirm your spot in one of the three level groups. Always changing track layouts and plenty of track riding time will help you to understand the physics quickly.
There are many subjects covered in regard body positioning and to hanging-off. As a prerequisite to this course, however, we expect you have at least upper- intermediate level in regard to line choice, counter steering, and trail braking. If not, then you might take advantage of our popular Cornering School program. To actually drag the knee or elbow is not our main goal here, and you might consider our Knee Down class, if you struggle getting it done. The Body Positioning class focuses on “communication”- the body language to fight center gravity on a wider range. You’ll be surprised how much there is to learn to do ‘body positioning’ right!

NEED A RENTAL BIKE?! We can help you out. Rent one of our pool bikes which comes with gas, race tires, and transport. The fee is $190, and an optional insurance of about $85 which covers you to max $700 in damage, no matter how bad it is. Of course you can bring a cheaper 3rd party rental, but you won’t have that insurance, and no transportation to our track. Just opt it in the booking process.
ENTRANT DISCRETION IS ADVISE: OUR CLASSES ARE TAUGHT UP FRONT, HONEST, AND POSSIBLY ‘IN YOUR FACE’ APPROACH. WE TRY AS MUCH AS WE CAN, HOWEVER, SOME OF THE LANGUAGE USED COULD BE ‘UNCOMFORTABLE OR OFFENSIVE’ TO SOME. ALSO, HARD AS CRITICISM MAY BE GIVEN, PRAISE IS JUST AS QUICK AND POWERFUL. WE BELIEVE YOU DESERVE A VERY HONEST APPROACH AND EVERY WORD SAID IS ‘FROM THE HEART’ TO HELP IMPROVE AND MOTIVATE. IF YOU FEEL THIS IS TOO HARSH, THEN THIS PROGRAM MIGHT BE NOT A MATCH FOR YOU.
