You're right, it was a bit confusing.  Whatever, the important thing is I agree with the roll from long jump momentum part.

Yeah that's exactly what I said.  I'm not arguing that.  Reread my post.

Well I've heard the number 2.5 - 3 meters thrown around a bit.  That meaning you should not do ANY drops over those heights in your first year(or more.)  3 feet is less than one meter, so there is no case that you should be rolling on a drop like that.(unless you have TONS of forward momentum....not sure how that would work, but if you jump quickly 10 feet than you should probably roll just to be able to run along smoothly.)

Yes, I know, but that wasn't the situation we were discussing(unless I misunderstood someone.)

Rolls =/= 3 feet.  Sorry, even in the first year(unless you are like 8 years old or something :-\)

Go get a tape measurer, extend it to 3 feet.  You want to roll off that?  You'll most likely do more damage to your back trying to roll off that in your first year than you would ever even get close to doing to your knees.  5 feet is understandable, but 3 feet?!  Sorry, I just can't imagine that being effecient or neccesary.

I disagree.  There is no instance in which your legs/knees should not be able to hold you up in a continous run from a 3 foot drop to the point where you HAVE to roll.  It's completely unnecesary and just plain stupid.  Now if you Jump a good 11 feet from the 3 feet drop, then yes you should roll, but for just running off, no.

Focus on jumping UP!  Don't completely focus on that though, or you'll mess up your rotation.  Jump a bit higher, get a good tuck in.  I'd recommend trying it in a safe gym area first though if you don't have experience. ;)

You shouldn't be rolling off of a 3 foot drop....

Actually it is acceptable to be rolling off of any sized drop, as long as you find it comfortable.

No, because it's not effecient, I could practically step off a 3 foot drop.  Comfortability has nothing to do with it.

And thanks for the clarification Cyanide. ;)

Quadrecept strength and knee strength, also work on technique.  Take it easy and don't rush it.

I don't really practice long diving kongs to much, I train more practical situations much more, but I do practice diving kongs from afar sometimes.  I'm not sure how far I can go.... 6 feet probably off a raw guess.  Exit....I've done almost 8 feet in a gym(no spring floor)

It doesnt seem possible to move slowly to do it

Then go fast.

First touch on obstacle = Good strong momentum push off

Second touch = Good controlled and stable finishing tap for stability on the way down giving you room to land.

Well, maybe there are more than one "huntington beaches" around, but I live in california.  And of course, Miami is in Florida.

As for the video, it was all shot in one day, we had some great progression so we decided to show it, most of the time was done training and not filming.  We weren't looking to make a full length video or anything, I used every piece of footage we had.

and Thanks for the comment. ;)
