Kohei – 2014 Floor

I’d argue Kohei Uchimura singled handedly reinvented how male gymnasts land.

Easily the best in the world in his prime, many emulated Kohei’s exaggerated technique.

I love it as he turned the science of safely reducing huge impact forces to zero into an art form.

At the same time WAG was foolishly deducting low chest position. Dangerous!

Of his many stuck routines over many years, Blythe chose this as one of her decade-defining routines.

I’ve never seen one quite like it.

For me several available iPads in the Gym work great. Favourite the videos you want to keep for later.

Robots doing all MAG WAG Apparatus

He’s built them for all apparatus MAG and WAG, including Pommels.

I’m impressed by the Flyaway with twists. And the Kovacs series.
