Jake Stoeckicht – tumbling drills

I want to attend a camp with coach Jake Stoeckicht from Rockford. He’s passionate. A great communicator. And I really like his approach to backward tumbling.

He uses many drills with exaggerated hip flexion. Edouard Iarov and many of the top coaches of the world encourage that technique. Note that the final skill in competition will not be done with anywhere near this kind of hip flexion. These are only progressions.

One thought on “Jake Stoeckicht – tumbling drills”

  1. This is very much the approach and some of the progressions I was exposed to at one of the Make It Right gym camps this past summer. National team coaches Dan Baker on vault and Ivan Ivanov really emphasized the low, rounded feet in front finish to the round off to get huge snap into the back handspring(s). I am a believer.
