Well it has been about one year since I started at the gym and its been amazing. I know I haven’t been able to post much despite my constant sayings that I would. Soon to be fixed as I graduate from high school next Friday and will have hours of time on the plane when I go to Italy for 5 weeks in July. Anyways I generally like my videos to reflect my feelings at the time of their creation and I think this one does it pretty well with the music and whatnot. So i think that’s about it, some of the newer moves in the video I’ll get a bit more refined then make tutorials for them once I’m better at them.
So here we are, over 20,000 hits of people reading my junk.
This is definitely one of the more impressive moves in regards to novice tricking, especially when done over an object or small wall. Just a quick note, this is not a flip, it is a kick with both your legs rather than one. And there are huge differences between this and a side flip including the following things: takeoff, upper body motions, and position of legs while midair. That being said let’s continue with the tutorial.
The takeoff involves going off of two feet, whether they are together or apart is preference but in this tutorial I suggest having them together for a strong punch. Here is a crucial part, throw your arms into the air and torque in the direction you want to rotate. USE YOUR ARMS, otherwise its just not going to work.
At this point there’s no turning back so just keep rotating. If you stop rotating you’re going to land on your back which can be very painful. Most people would say at this point to keep your arms in your chest while you rotate, but I feel more power and torque when I keep them around my head which helps my brain to emphasize to turn my neck.
If you’ve gotten to this point congratulations you have landed a Double Leg. Even if you’ve got it down to a science I’d suggest learning it from both takeoffs, the punch and the split step.
1. Takeoff from either the punch or split step
2. Use your arms to propel you skywards
3. Torque using your shoulders, neck,and arms the legs will follow
4. Spot your landing
