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.
