Gianni – GOLD on Floor

The Youth Olympic Games all-around champion killed it on FX. One of the cleaner routines we’ve seen all season. :-)

Dude. If you stick the mount cold, don’t do the silly looking knee bend. That’s to help cover up an over-rotation.

FIG simply has to FIX the Floor rules.

Kenzo is still in High School

KenzoYep.

Our World Floor champion is young. I mistakenly believed him too young to have competed Worlds 2013.

Nico’s new MAG Liukin blog linked to some video of Kenzo’s High School Championships.

Click here to watch highlights. Kenzo has never looked better.

He’s been named to Japan’s Worlds 2014 Team.

safe spotting DVD – basic tumbling

My friend Kyle Thalman, a coach in Hawaii, has done a great job putting together a new spotting video. High production values. Great video quality.

Here’s a sample.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

My philosophy is that coaches should know how to spot. Then spot as little as possible, setting up progressions that kids can do on their own.

1 – Handstand chapter
2 – Forward Roll Chapter
3 – Backward Roll Chapter
4 – Front Walkover
5 – Back Walkover
6 – Cartwheel
7 – Standing Back Handspring
8 – Standing Back Tuck
9 – Running Aerial
10 – Running Front Tuck
11 – Round-off Back Handspring
12 – Round-off Back Handspring Back Tuck

It’s not cheap at $98.99. See if your Club will buy this resource for the staff.

Kiwi Coach David Phillips will be proud. He took a Bronze medal on Floor in the 1998 Commonwealth Games. :-)

I feel badly for Ashish Kumar who had hoped to medal again. He did not fall, but simply didn’t HIT nearly as well as the medalists.

Aly Raisman tumbling

Looks strong. :-)

Maroney is out for the season due to injury. She mentions it on this video.

That might make room for Skinner on the Worlds 2014 team.

backward handspring analysis

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

That’s the latest sneak preview from Gymneo’s English language tutorial library being launched this Fall.

It’s a paid service, but between September 5 and September 25, 2014, a subscription is half price for 1 year — that’s €109.50 instead of €219 (US$149.50 instead of US$299).

Details – COMING SOON : GYMNEO.TV IN ENGLISH

One comment I’d add. If you allow beginners to do standing backward handspring on a flat, hard Floor, you are almost guaranteed problems. Instead, have them train down an incline where gravity assists.
