connecting kip to cast handstand

JAO is back with another excellent tutorial.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

I’m teaching this series all week at Camp so the timing of this release was perfect for me.

Love targeting the straddle cast handstand right from the start. Most girls over age-12 will be competing straddle cast.🙂 Don’t waste too much time on straight body cast.

Love the “dump” drills. Kids need to know what to do when they lean too far over, otherwise they won’t be confident in leaning over far enough.

At Camp we’ve been doing similar drills from long kip rather than glide kip. I find the “late” kip action is easier if the girls do not need to worry about the glide.
