Hi my name is Clinsey. I saw this on you tube once, I thought it was pretty cool, someone should see how to do a black flip, so I just wanted to do it from my perspective. For me there is three parts to a black flip. There is the jump. The second part would be the role. And then the third part would be the landing. All in all, let me show you and example for that, so, one two three. So, that is an example of a black flip on a different side. So then, for the jump, it is pretty simple, it is just like doing a regular jump. Before you try and do this, make sure you have proper instruction, you know, someone is spotting you and have matt. I have matt somewhere but it is not here now so, so make sure you have proper attire, okay. Well, make sure you have the proper attire, you know, shoes and everything like that.
First part of the jump. You want to try to jump relatively high, and then make sure you have someone –a forming team backwards. With your legs slightly in front, did you see that falling feeling of initiating the back flip? That needs you to do the role which is the second part. And it is just like a back role, regular back role. There are two ways of doing it. Some people grab there knees which I do, and some people do it by diving underneath there legs. I will try that too later. Which I do not know, it makes you faster, so some people like that. So the role is just a simple role. Just make sure you stay within a tight pull for your legs toward you instead of pulling yourself towards your legs and knees cause then you are not falling on your head if you are falling backwards. The final part is the landing. So landing is pretty simple, you just land. So practice landing, you can do a couple of jumps, and land. This will give you solid rock fence to the ground. Okay, so all together now one two three. So one, the role, two, back flip landing, three, and this is what it looks like all together.
Okay, so then, the different variations, you can do a side flip which is kind of an aerial flip. This is a front flip like running like this. This looks harder but you can also do a back flip. You got had to have a half twist. I am tired. And you can do the full twist. Like this. Okay, there we go.
