Switch Leap full?

Not open for further replies.

How do you teach a switch leap full?

I'm not sure if I'm in the right forum.

I really want my sister to do that skill in competition but her coach doesn't know how to teach it. My sister has awesome switch leap so I don't think the flexibility part would me a problem for her.

And is this skill a B? or a C?

here's a video of her switch leap (it'S at 1:30 - 1:38) :

It's a C. My best guess is that you would do the switch, then half turn, then split, then the other half turn... kind of like a tour jete 1/2 that turns late.
