Kip-Up: Help Please
« on: June 14, 2013, 07:38:16 PM »
I need help landing a Kip-Up. I land on my feet, but my chest is too far back when I land so I fall back down. When I land, I land in a deep squat. Can anyone help?

I do not remember seeing this topic and I do not know how to do a kip-up. Sorry  :(
Every now and then the forum empties out , I guess summer can be one of those times.

Hey! So the kip up was the first move I learned and it actually took me pretty long to get. It's all about timing so the only way to go about learning it well for me was just practicing... alot. I did the same as you, started on a mattress and just worked down to the ground. So yeah, don't feel bad if you don't get it, just practice and DO NOT give up :)

Something I learned is you can use your hands to help push and give you an extra amount of energy to get up.
2 Samuel 22
30 For by you I can run against a troop; By my God I can leap over a wall.
33 God is my strength and power, And He makes my way perfect.
34 ...he sets me on my high places.
37 you enlarged my path under me; so my feet did not slip.

The finish of a GOOD kip up in my opinion is the finish of a front walk over or front handspring step out.  Push your hips forward and step out with your good foot.  Let that foot pull you forward and keep your arms by your ears.  After that Kip Ups are just all timing and strength.    Keep practicing.
Train smart, train safe.  You are not your neighbor.

easy,stand up and roll backwards with your hands beside your ears flat on the ground fingers pointing your feet.then keep your legs together the whole time and throw them forward(remember keep them together the whole time)and yes you can push with your hands to get extra momentum and then land in a squating position.
