Running and standing with an emphasis on the agent. Hello and welcome to Tulsa tumble talk with justice tumbling company, the one and only Tulsa tumbling show where we your Jenks tumbling lessons Tulsa tumbling experts answer the questions that we get from parents and athletes on a daily basis where your Jenks tumbling lessons hosts Coulton cruise and rusty breadth slur and we’re the owners of justice tumbling company in Tulsa, Oklahoma. There’s just some things that rusty and I hate to see and one of those things is an advanced athlete who has beginner or novice standing tumbling. What? Yeah. Can you believe that doesn’t have it so happens unfortunately people, um, find that they have more power with their running tumbling and so that’s what the, that’s what they kind of focus on. It’s easier that way. And uh, without a doubt, running tumbling is easier than standing.
Absolutely. You’ll find kids will always try to just do the bare minimum of whatever they have to on standing just to get by for whatever they’re doing, whatever team, whatever class, and then running the, they’re all about, they’re getting all these skills, specialties. But then as you get older and older, you grow as an athlete, you grow as a tumbler, you get into all these advanced classes or trying to make harder teams where it requires both, where it’s certain requirements of both at a high level. So if you’ve put a lot of emphasis in the running and then you’re trying to go back on the standing, it’s, it’s really hard. It’s very, very rare that it’s the other, there’s some, some very rare cases where some kids just love standing where they really just want to focus standing, standing, standing. They love standing back handspring, standing tech, but then they can’t do a running tech to say their life. But that is rare. We see it a lot more where kids are just, like you said, more comfortable with the power, with the speed of running tumbling, that they kind of focus on standing as little as possible.
Yeah. Yeah. And here at Justice Tumbling Company, we truly believe that standing compliments you’re running, so standing, uh, requires much more muscle, much more, uh, technique, I guess you’d say. Um, then running does because running allows you that momentum standing, you’re having to create all that momentum on your Jenks tumbling lessons own. So whenever you’re doing standing back hand springs or standing Tux, it’s going to automatically um, boost you’re running. It’s going to make it a better pass all around. So we, we will um, not always focus on standing or running will always focus on both of them together.
Absolutely. That’s where in both are in our classes. Your Jenks tumbling lessons work on both. Um, I’ve been a part of programs where in a class you might not touch standing ones just because running is a lot easier to just line kids up. Do running paths, get back in line. Um, our classes are very structured, very detailed and lots of drills, lots of drills. Um, so being able to do drills is, is important as well. But that goes with the running and the standing. It’s okay to like one more than the other, but it is not okay to just try to ignore one.
It’s kind of like the layouts technique, quit layouts, people hate layouts and so they’ll try to just ignore it and sweep it under the rug, um, and just move on as quick as they can. And that’s, that’s not a good idea. We want to really build up and strengthen all of our tumbling as a whole and standing as part of that. It’s going to, if you have good Ron standing, backhand springs, it’s going to make it easier for you to do standing Tux. It’s just so much easier to Anna and we have it where, uh, I’ll tell a kid I want you to do two to tech. Um, and then we’ll work on standing texts, but then they freak out. And then I think that to, to tech is actually harder than standing tech and it’s, it’s not the, I’m the momentum. The power from the backhand springs will actually help your Jenks tumbling lessons tech help you get your type faster and then you go from two to tech to standing one to tech and then standing tuck all on its own,
you would think. But kids love it and reverse it blows my mind when a kid prefers or wanting to talk or things that are, they get more power out of a one to tuck them too to talk. Yeah. If that’s the case, then you are doing something wrong in your Jenks tumbling lessons backhand springs. Yeah. You should always get more power out of series to scale because your technique is stronger. If a two to Tuck is harder than a one to talk, there’s something lacking on your Jenks tumbling lessons tech.
There’s, I actually know kids who have standing texts but do not have a one to tech do not have at two to tech. And when asked to throw like a, even though they have a running layout asked to throw a two delay, they kind of laugh and giggle and they’re like, that’s impossible. I can’t do that. Um, but that’s a terrible attitude to have. That’s something that you obviously need to work on it. That’s the case. I have kids tell me I hate standing tumbling. Um, and then that’s when I tell them, okay, well how about we work on it until you don’t hate it anymore. And we can make it to where it’s clean enough and it’s powerful enough that you don’t hate it. And um, kids who give that a chance always come out on top, always come out happy that they did that yeah.
Can work more on standing, which it’s not an easy road. Um, but that’s why we have it as part of our curriculum because it is needed. It’s important that isn’t needed and a lot of the drills required for standing, tumbling, kids hate. But if you can do the drills at and makes doing the actual skill so much easier, especially doing it by yourself, then you’re not. If you’re able to do it with the drill, you’re not becoming reliant on the coach to do it for you. You’re relying on yourself and maybe one mat, whatever the drill is, you’re building up that self confidence and through the drills. That’s why we have set up in all our classes
and self confidence is the key to getting, uh, getting these skills skills on your Jenks tumbling lessons own. Um, we don’t want you to be in love with a justice one individual justice coach. I want you to be in love with the program and our curriculum and how we run things. Um, because one coach should be able to step in and substitute and take over for that coach without any problems at all. And, uh, and we understand that having new coaches make set a little bit difficult, but, um, when you’re in love with the process, then you have much more self, uh, self confidence and you’re able to get skills quicker because you’re not reliant on one coach being there to spot you a certain way and you’re more, you’re more confident in yourself.
Definitely. So find out which athlete you are, if you like, running her standing more and really push yourself in the next few weeks to, to really push whatever you don’t like. So most, most people are going to be standing, yeah. Get in there and do, really pushed to do standing drills, standing conditioning, and just a lot of standing repetitions.
And believe it or not, that actually includes like tow backs and toe back, hand springs and Cartwheel Tux, Cartwell, backhand, springs, things like that. Um, that’s going to give you much more, uh, versatility as an athlete where a coach can say, you know what, I want this girl or this guy on my team because no matter where I put them, they’re going to do exactly what I asked. They’re gonna they, they, they’re not gonna complain. And, uh, and that is, um, priceless. You can’t pay for that and that it’s something that you have to change within yourself. You’ve got to make that change. And, uh, and so that’s, that’s, I think that’s a great goal, rusty. I think that for this, uh, these coming weeks, set this, have a goal of what you need, um, or that you want for running and then have a goal for standing as well. Something that you don’t like to do. Let’s, let’s spend some time on it.
Or if there’s, I mean, if you think you’ve maxed out everything your Jenks tumbling lessons can do on standing, you’re, you’re probably wrong. There is definitely more you can, do
you ever heard of a series or a, a, a specialty standing pass
or you know, what I love is all these people who have tow backs. If you have them try a triple toe or double tap or a pike back. Oh, canter mind throw a wrench in their gears. Yes. But us growing up I think really backs. We did every hurdle or backs like push yourself to try new things. Yeah. Cause I how many athletes do you, oh ah, there was one more. Woo. There’s one more athlete by how many athletes do you know the Avatar back that probably couldn’t do a hurdle there. Back door. Our pack back. Yeah. Actually. Yeah. Yeah. The,
the, the intro into the skill is a little different. They have to swing differently. Their bodies in a different position. So don’t get so comfortable on one thing. We should probably do a podcast just on combat. Comfortability. Yeah. Being, being comfortable, getting complacent, stuck, stagnant in that one thing that we’re going to do it, we’re going to do it. Yeah. Not Getting so comfortable. Um, but that that falls in line perfectly with what we’re talking about is, uh, if, if you are comfortable with running, let’s, let’s find something that you’re not comfortable with and kind of tackle that and make it so that you’re not so, uh, hating on it anymore.
