I did a post a while ago on tkatchevs. But I have some more videos to share with you. As with anything there are dozens of different ideas as to the technique of the skill. From a much more extreme arch before flight, to almost no arch at all, and training a more “sitting up” technique. That being said, use what works for you an your kids.
This first video I mentioned in the last post, but I couldn’t find it. It’s one of my absolute favorite drills. I think it does a whole bunch of things. Helps kids focus on shapes (by taking out the straddle), combats fear, etc.
This is actually kind of a new one I found. It’s obviously a very similar concept to a lot of the ones I’ve shown. But I think I really like it. Just because of a) where it is (tramp = fun) b) the low impact of it
Not to worry!
The full 45 minute lecture of Bars Shaping from Pre-Team Up is now available for download, along with the full powerpoint and all of the videos!
