PostSubject: Landings   Sun Feb 25, 2007 2:01 pm

Right, I'll try explain this one. Imagine jumping down some steps, but landing in the middle of the steps. Finding balance is tricky. This is where the first step to this landing comes in. Jump say, 1 or 2 steps down, and as you jump, turn to the side, so your side is facing the bottom of the steps. The foot that is now closest to the top should be put down first, bend it to take in some impact, and as you are doing this, let your second foot land, one step below, also taking the impact. Try to land centered so you can stand up after takign the impact- no falling down the steps Wink
Now try this same technique but turn to the opposite side. This means you are able to land facing either way.
Afterwards, run and jump up the steps, the foot that is closest should land first, take half the impact, then your second foot should land on the next step up, taking the other half of the impact.

Now take this to drops, not 20ft high, or even 10ft high for that matter, you don't want to screw up your knees. Drop from something about waist height, turn to land on one foot before the other, with your second foot being a step in front as usual, and take in the impact slowly. The more time between each leg touching the ground, the better. Although you shouldn't hold on one foot any longer than is comfortable.
Now that you can do it, try jumping up to the top of a small staricase, about 3 steps high, and with a rail/wall to the left. Jump up, use this technique to turn, and then go pass the rail however you feel. Then use the same 3 steps, but jump down, use this technique to turn you, and carry on in that direction towards the next obstacle. Eventually you'll be using this after all small drops, and all vaults etc that require turns after landing. Keep practising it and you'll see yourself moving alot more fluidly in the near future.
thanks

Practisin landings on the steps is only for PRACTISING LANDINGS. Once you get the hang of it, you can clear the steps with one jump, and use that landing at the bottom so you don't hurt yourself Wink
