Ice Skating Tutorial: Jumping Basics for Beginners

Ice Skating Tutorial: Jumping Basics for Beginners


Hey guys!
Last time we had some fun with jumps so it’s time for the tutorial! This is going to be
a quick video about the basics, because I’m going to do a massive series of jumping tutorials
in the future talking about 360s and even more complex jumps. WAIT! What was THAT in
the background??? Let me start with the most important thing: Don’t try to jump forward! Because you can’t. Watch this. You can only jump upwards. So use this technique both for high jumps and long jumps too but for long jumps with more speed. The upper body’s task is very important. First, the arms will generate extra momentum. Strike in the air with them at the same time
when you jump with your legs. Second, it can stabilize your motion. If you strike forward
a bit and not completely upwards, it can give some extra momentum forward, giving the illusion
that you jumped forward. But we saw, that it is impossible.The legs will only kick you
upwards. If you pay close attention you can see that the legs are just gently leaving
the ground. If you want to jump high, in addition to a stronger strike with you arms, you can
tuck your legs. A nice way to cheat some height if you shift your legs to the side. You can
instantly gain about 20 cm with this trick. I think the basic jumps are always worth practicing
because they are fun and you can build up more advanced stuff on them. That’s it for
this tutorial, I will continue as I promised. Stay tuned guys, I saw the tutorials requests
in the comment section, and..I want to say, I’m on them. So subscribe if you haven’t already.
See you!
