Hello and welcome to Tulsa tumble talk with justice tumbling company, the one and only Tulsa tumbling show where we your Tulsa tumbling experts. Answer the questions that we get from parents and athletes on a daily basis. We are your hosts, Coulton cruise and rusty breaths slur and we are the owners of justice tumbling company in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Okay. So today we’re going to be going over stick and stand in this podcast. This goes back to everything in all star, tumbling to a highschool, competitive gymnastics, everything, anything and everything that we want to see in tumbling. Jenks tumbling lessons, the way we train is different than the way we perform. We want to train with rebounds, you know, always finishing with rebounds and everything like that. But when you are performing, there’s a point where we do need to start working on sticking and standing.
Yep. Or finishing a scale coming out of any kind of flipping and skill. It’s important to train, planting your feet, no movement. It looks so clean when done right and it’s good for your body. So sticking stand, you hear from your coach probably every time or hopefully you hear it from your coach every time you’re tumbling. But sticking and standing is landing with your feet together. No movement at all, absorbing into your landing. No movement. Yeah. You can’t explain to anybody that so many kids get used to just flipping and landing in, walking away or popping and doing. They all have different things. Throwing their arms. Are we out a Groaner cost yesterday that had beautiful technique, but every landing does throw her arms up. It’s hard to clean that up and that’s hard to make look good.
Yeah. So we talked about the three, Jenks tumbling lessons, the three parts of every scale, which is the, the set or the take off. Then it’s the, the actual skill itself, the body position, uh, in between the start and the finish. And then last but certainly not least is the finish. And that’s what we’re going over to that is, that is so important. I mean, one, it keeps you safe. It’s not a, if you are not landing short, you’re able to walk away with without pain and your ankles, which is a very important part.
Yes. If you’re tumbling on hard floor sticking and standing is very important and landing at that certain angle that you’re not putting all your pressure on your ankle. Uh, everything uses. If you’re an all star gymnastics, you do stunt the sport. Every body uses sticking it, it’s going to give you the higher difficulty. It’s going to give you the higher technique score and it just stands out. It’s a kid who can throw a double, uh, versus a kid who can throw a double and stick in. Stand up. It’s a, it’s a, it’s a mind blower. Yeah. Beautiful. Yeah. So going over how to stick in stand. Jenks tumbling lessons, we’ve kind of done it in some of our podcasts going over the landing, the angles absorbing in through your toes and knees and not letting it just land straight legged that we see that a lot.
Here’s the thing is that if you are trying to land with legs locked out, I don’t know why, but so many kids think that they have to like punch the ground to land. Um, and that’s not the case at all. If you are falling in mid air, you don’t have to force yourself to hit the ground. You’re going to hit the ground no matter what, but you don’t have to push those to those ankles down to the ground and, and uh, put that much pressure on them. So, Jenks tumbling lessons, I’ve always said pulling your toes right underneath your nose and then you’re going to be in that bug position where those, those fists are slight, almost straight down by your knees. Um, arms locked out. You don’t want to, uh, let those arms swing or, or, uh, you know, come out by your head. Like rusty was saying earlier, you want to really be able to absorb. Now when those legs are locked out and your chest is forward, it’s really hard to absorb anything. That’s why kids lock out their legs. But if you pull your chest up, you put your hips underneath you, you’re able to absorb that landing and a all the way from your firm through your toes to your heels and then your knees. You’re, you don’t get any, um, any flack through your ankles or the rest of your body through the absorb.
Yes. Cause Tom Lee, I’m hard for landing with straight legs. You’re going to feel it in your entire body, your entire body. Now you can stick in, stand with legs apart. You’ll see people always do that if they’re playing, like stick it or something with standing tax cause it’ll just flip over and they think it’s easier to land and plant their feet. Like they’re riding a horse that does not look good, that is bad for your body, that is bad for your knees. Train ankles together out of everything, whether it’s a toe touch, whether it’s a standing tech, um, train hitting those ankles together and might not feel comfortable. But it does look good.
Well, and here’s the thing is that you’re coming down with an enormous amount of, of weight onto your knees. Like you’re hitting it really hard. Sorry if that was loud in your headphones, if that’s what you’re listening on. Um, but we tell kids all the time that when you’re, you’re, whenever you’re knees are together, your ankles are together, your ankles and your knees work together. If they’re apart, there’s a lot of crazy things at your ankles can do. Jenks tumbling lessons, and the things that your knees can do that are going to really, really hurt you in the long run. Um, and it may not just be one injury, like I said, it, it can be over time, just taking wear and tear on those knees and you could have bad knee problems as you grow up. So legs together all the time, especially on those fools.
Yes, young athletes training, it’s very important to learn sticking in, standing with feet together at a young age because once you learn it and it becomes a habit, it is a very, very hard habit to fix. Um, everybody hates when we rubber band their feet together, but there’s, if they can’t physically do it themselves, if they’re not conditioning themselves to do it, then we kind of got to go to those extreme measures. Um, so trained from a very early age, feet together, sticking and standing by Colin said there are two ways to train. If you’re training for the next skill, you should always be rebounding. If you’re trying to clean it up, whether it’s a stunt, the sport, whether it’s an all star routine planting, even if it’s a backhand spring, backhand spring, absorbing into your landing for the stick and stand. Jenks tumbling lessons, there are different kinds of sticking stands gymnast to a lot different sticks, the very flare arms. So all stars stunt, the sport cheer school chair isn’t really looking for that. So knowing the different sticks, um, we have different tumblers that come into the gym. So we see gymnast come in, receive just rec tumblers, receive school tumblers. So getting to know the athletes and then knowing what we need to work with when it comes to their sticking.
So now we’ve talked about how important sticking in standing is. Um, now we’re going to talk about, uh, why, why do, why do judges want to see that? Well, one, it’s going to, um, it shows that you’re a clean tumbler, that you, you know, how to adjust your, your power, you know, how to control your body so that you finish in the proper position without flying backwards. You know, going off the mat into the crowd. Um, but also it will, it will save you guys a lot of points. If they’re seeing you take a step out of your full or your layout or your tech and it’s not supposed to be a like a, uh, like a step out, then, then it will cost you guys some points, especially if the next routine is sticking in, standing everything. It’s just the presence of your team. When you stick in stand. It’s just something to be remembered.
It shows you’ve mastered this skill or you’ve mastered the path without some giant hop forward or backward or dramatic step. Jenks tumbling lessons, it, it is shows you’re an elite tumbler and even if it’s just a backhand spring when done correctly, when done clean, it’s so much different, especially when your coach and you, this is your full time job. When you see somebody sticks something versus somebody who just kind of things their body and then walks away. It’s a, we always congratulate that kid who sticks where like riled up. That was right.
It becomes a pride thing. Like if you can get to where you’re sticking in standing everything you do. Like there are a lot of athletes that don’t train sticking in standing. But that’s what we, that’s why we want to make a difference. We want to make sure that you guys are sticking in standing. Jenks tumbling lessons, yeah.
Do you want all our justice tumblers and every one of our classes that that’s expected. That is what we want to see. So when we are continuously bringing it up, like we always tell people we don’t like repeating ourselves. So if you do it, we won’t say it.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Jenks tumbling lessons, and you know, in stumped the sport like rusty had mentioned earlier, it is a, that if you don’t stick in stand, if you take a step back or if you pop out, like so many all star athletes do, um, it, you’ll get marks for that. You’ll get counted points kind of against you for that. So it’s important to remember when even just cartwheels, even their cartwheels are sticking Stan, Jenks tumbling lessons, kids like to, uh, always try to turn a little bit of extra in there, took in their cartwheel and stomped the sport. Their cartwheels are really different, very, very different.
So make it a challenge for yourself when you’re tumbling next, really try to stick every school you’re doing, even if it’s just a round off rebound stick, train yourself and stick to Stan sticking stand and with your feet together and not with your crazy wild horse leg.
Right? And, and you will, you will feel the difference. You will see a difference and you will hear a difference in what people, people say about your tumbling. So if you are interested in finding out more about us, you can check out our website. It’s justice tumbling co.com
