“Training” Photograph

One of the best ways to improve your reactions is to throw darts at a board just above your head then try to dodge them as they bounce back at you. This boy was getting quite good at it. He even tried to catch one or two.

Occasionally a dart would actually stick in the board so eventually he ran out of darts and had to jump to grab them from the board thereby inventing a new version of the game as several fell at him at the same time.

Although it looked dangerous to me as an adult, it was clearly a regular pastime for the lad and gave me the impression of being an excellent way to train for life if not actually to train as a darts player.
