Before you challenge this trick, be sure to check the following points in advance.
- You can do straight air with stability.
- In the air with stability, you can do the following two movements at same time:
- In order to perform this grab trick, you already can do the correct movements on a level surface without your board attached.
If you have a solid grasp on these things, you can probably learn this trick fairly quick!
Let's jump right into it!
Sequence by sequence, I'm going to explain the “Rocket Grab.”
It's time for me to answer another question that I've been asked many times!
This time, it's about doing a grab while spinning!
Hello Sensei! I can do a 360, but when I do a grab, my spin stops.
How can I do a grab without stopping my rotation?
When doing an intermediate level spin, trying to throw in a grab is a big challenge.
By doing a grab, you lose speed and you can't complete the spin.
I hear this a lot from intermediate level snowboarders trying to do spins.
The reason is because the power of the spin is not fully followed through with the hips.
This is a fact that surprisingly hasn’t been recognized, but these are probably new words for Intermediate level people.
You might have thought “Well now that you mention it, that is true.”
However, I think that you haven’t compared these two on “edging”.
This isn’t a fact that intermediate level riders are very aware of.
I’ve answered a question that you’ve asked!
Today’s theme is “Where to look to keep spinning”
It’s about when rotation is slowed down in the middle of a spin.
My friend told me to make sure controlling point of view while spinning, but I still don’t really understand that.
Please teach me about it!
Cases where people stall in the middle of a spin happen often.
Even if the reasons for slowing down are the same, the parts of the body that people should focus on will be depend on the situation.
Try focusing on where you are looking here.
While I am a coach, this subject is about denying coaching, but it isn’t like that.
I’ve had many student riders from beginners to national level riders.
All of them differed with how fast they comprehended things and how fast they learned skills, and it wasn’t related to their skill level.
Since there were students who would ask me the same things over and over no matter how many times I’d taught it to them, there were also students who applied various things after being taught once and were able to practice on their own.
This is Part 2 of my previous tutorial, “Do Freestyle Snowboarders Need Physical Training?”
This time, let's think about what kind of results we can derive from Running.
When I say, “derive,” I'm talking about the results you can get out of your heart and lung function.
When you strengthen your heart and lung function, what kind of benefits are there?
They can be found in the increased amount of blood that is pumped at one time from your heart. You could also say that it's the amount of oxygen that is pumped into your bloodstream.
It's probably easier to think of it as having trained your heart muscles.
First up are keywords for this tutorial!
These two keywords will help to change your performance!
Between Beginner and Intermediate, or Intermediate and Advanced.
There are obvious differences when comparing each of their performances.
Their performances look cleaner the higher their skill levels rise.
It’ll be obvious that their skill levels are high!
I think so too, but for now let’s try thinking about ways to use your body.
I’ve answered a common question!
This time the topic is “Where do I look while spinning”
So you will learn how to control your balance while spinning.
Where should I be looking during a spin?
Does it vary depending on the spin trick?
Please tell me Sensei!
I feel this is a very common question, but the answer can be different for every trick
For example If someone were to ask where they should look during takeoff, while in the air, and landing respectively, The way this would be answered depends on your goal.
