Alright, those who don’t know what that is, I’m going to show you right away, just demonstrate. That is the Jason game. The first as well mostly, when people try this first time, they normally just -- they run and they get that but they don’t know to go over. We have to do -- do not chicken out. What you do, you just bring it back. First, the run up is like a J, it pens the name, Jason Gainer, this will give - also I could have kick them off.
Alright, some -- the first step of Jason Gainer is the run up, it’s like a J. So you run up like this. As soon as you get to the curve in the J, swing your arms back around, so that -- so I’ll demonstrate. Swing your arms round, surely your foot is being trying to bend, waiting for kick to spin your ball. Okay, so once you got the run up on the way, is that clear? And then just swing your arms though, the same as your kick, when you’re just up to the sky. So let me demonstrate that just – two seconds there. So your run is like this, arms behind the kick, so the kick follows your arms. So this is the time suited to get the momentum from your arms and the foot. So the Jason Gainer, your run here, and you swing through, watch your swing through, you go up and then just after you go, you kick as hard as you can towards the sky, and no issues flipping around. Normally first timers, I try to talk like that for the first learners, the beginners. I’m going to demonstrate. You want to --
Okay, see on the top my legs which makes so she is come around a global. So once you spot the ground you should release talk and then you hit the ground. What people first tend to do on Jason Gainer I, people are just momentarily scared, that’s the only thing. People are just scared that if you can do it, well means go ahead and do, practice it but. Normally people when they are scared they are just – I know the boys who can tell you, they’ll just do it like. Kick and go over, like a back flip. In a back top, we got separate tutorial for that. You still got to attend, the back top will help you and open a wide range of flips. So you could -- Jason Gainer is impose a back flip, again impose a back flip. A lot things in involve around -- revolve around the back foot, it’s just an evolution. Okay let me demonstrate the Jason Gainer one more time you guys. Okay, that is a Ground Zero on Jason Gainer. Thanks for watching.
