Dash vault
« on: July 10, 2009, 07:49:28 AM »
Hi I'm trying to learn the dash vault and I watched the Urban Current tutorial and I only have one problem. I can't even take off right. I am so used to doing Kongs that i can't swing my legs the other way. Does anyone know how to overcome this?

I've taught a lot of people how to dash and it seems like just about everybody does this at first.  It's a weird mental block to force through.  Repetitious practice is probably the best way to go about it. 

Practice jumping over something over and over and gradually start leaning your chest back a little bit more each time.  This should put you in more of a dash-like position and make it feel more natural to pull your legs up in front of you.  Good luck, train safe!

I found it easy once I practiced Coils

Coils are basically a Hurdle with both legs out and you tuck... Like a long Jumper uses

we use them to clear obstacles that we don't need to vault (Like something low) and keep momentum and by aerodynamic

anyways...  you use BASICALLY the same technique in Dash vaults, you just lean backwards instead of forwards...

but yea, coils are a good technique to have anyways, and they help with dash vaults in my experience (And my friends)

(I searched for a tutorial... can't find one... does NO one do coils anymore lol)
