Tumbling Tulsa | Failing and Getting back up
Hello and welcome to Tulsa tumbled 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’re your hosts, coulton cruise and rusty breath fleur, and we are the owners of justice tumbling company in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Now, today’s podcast is one that we are kind of rolling with no outline, no nothing. We, Tumbling Tulsa, we’ve done this before and it’s worked out really well on subjects that are important to us. And so we’ll see how it goes. Today’s topic is bailing is failing. Why was that one more time? Bailing Babababa bailing is fa, FA, FA, FA failing.
All right, well, I’m looking at the definition of the word bail and that is a temporary release of an accused person awaiting trial.
That’s certainly, that’s not what we’re talking about. The bail we’re talking about, Tumbling Tulsa not the baling we’re talking about.
It also says real these or secure the release of payment
bail prisoners still. Now that you might have to scroll down a little bit where you explained to us what bailing we’re talking about. We’re talking about the bailing in tumbling. Now we’ve seen it time and time again and I know you have to. You’re at tumbling practice and maybe you or a different athlete you go to throw your round off, whip through to full, and you finish that whip and out of nowhere you go flying backwards. Like you just got hit by a super saying dragon ball. Warrior tumbling is powerful, but especially going with whips are going to have a lot of power coming out of that. So that’s the worst skills to bail out of. So the baling that we’re talking about comes down to one thing and one thing only. And that is committing to your skill. And we had a podcast on the committee. We did. We’ve, Tumbling Tulsa touched base on committing before and the importance of committing to your skill. Whenever you round off stop or you round off, back handspring, stop and you’re, you know, you’re meaning to throw a tech at the end or a full, um, you’re telling yourself subconsciously that is it’s okay to stop right in the middle of your past. And sometimes that happens to be right in the middle of your flip.
That’s where it can get scary. Um, athletes should go into every pass knowing what path or skill they’re going to do. I’m never just take off running. I don’t, I never have just taken off running and just made up the passes as I went. That would be really scaring a of times. Kids have a ton of things on their mind where they’re not really thinking about what skills they’re doing or if we’re moving through progressions, they’ll forget what skill I just told them they were on. And all it takes is one fall. And if you’re not mentally strong, that fall can be devastating to your entire career.
We tell athletes here at justice tumbling company to not overthink the skill, but you should be going over it in your head so you know exactly what’s happening, replay it so that whenever you do take off, you’re not going on on autopilot and just kind of going through the motions, you are proactively tumbling and doing each skill to prepare for the final skill that you’re doing.
Now, Colton, if you do happen to bail or in someone was videoing, should you watch that video over and over and over again?
Absolutely not. You shouldn’t be watching any videos of anybody failing. Tumbling Tulsa, I, I was in the military and getting it down to a subconscious level when you’re watching somebody failing over and over and over again. It’s the same way that brainwashing is used in the military or was used in the military. Hopefully they’re not doing it anymore, but, um, it’s the same process
and this is an important topic because it’s something we’re seeing more and more lately. And it’s something that seems like it’s common. And like Colton said, athletes are starting to think it’s just okay to stop out of every skill if one little thing feels wrong. Uh, I don’t really remember seeing too many bailing are. I mean, we didn’t have the technology that everybody does today, a very good camera on their phone, social media, social media, everything wasn’t videoed. Everybody didn’t have. If you saw a fall that happened live and it happened rarely at our gym, so blocking and things like that were never a thing. But now with technology, everybody has a video. Once you see it, Tumbling Tulsa even if you haven’t worked that skill yet, then you’ve already seen what can go wrong and continuing to watch it. That’s where I think we’re getting it more and more.
Tumbling Tulsa it gets ingrained into your brain and you don’t even realize that you think about it before you go, but you do. Now we are preparing for a podcast on the big bad mental block where we’re getting a bunch of research and we are, Tumbling Tulsa arming ourselves so that we can bring you the most relevant and up to date, um, ways to overcome mental blocks. And this really goes into it perfectly. Okay.
Probably hear a lot of or some of the stuff we talk about here and go into that because it is a small portion of it. Tumbling Tulsa, but yeah, that’s going to be an exciting topic. Now, Colton, not everybody’s perfect. We’re all human. God forbid. What if somebody does bail? Is there any preemptive measures here at justice tumbling that we take?
Absolutely rusty. We teach a thing called safety falls. Tumbling Tulsa, now it’s very, very important that you know how to fall so that you stay safe
because we’ve said it before, unfortunately, falling is a part of tumbling. So it’s gonna happen at some point in your career being. We train our athletes to be mentally strong so they can get up and go right back to the skill. But this is the safety fall that we are going to go over.
It’s, it’s just like being tackled in football. It’s not the fun part of the sport, but it is part of the sport. Same thing with, with falling. You’re going to have to get up, you’re going to have to dust yourself off, and you’re going to have to get back out there. Now, in order to do that, so we know you’re not getting rushed to the hospital. We want you to train in safety falls. That means I’m in a hollow position, Tumbling Tulsa not I repeat, not putting those arms back behind you to try to slow your fall down.
And why is that Colton? If an athlete is, like we said, they tumble out very fast speeds and that speed is going backwards with their feet still underneath them and they try to slow their rotation down. What is gonna Happen?
Well, okay, so as you’re trembling, you’re going about 12 to 15 miles per hour and whenever you’re falling and you’re locking out those arms, it’s like not quite like hitting a brick wall, but pretty close, um, that, that elbow is going to go the opposite direction. All of the power and the momentum that you’ve built up through your round, off in your backhand springs or whatever it is you’re throwing is now going up into the air. Tumbling Tulsa what goes up must come down, so all of that power is now going down and blowing out your elbow on the opposite side.
So step one is do not put the arms back. That’s it.
Tumbling Tulsa we’re not wanting to be graphic about that, but it’s a graphic situation whenever you see it.
Also, you do not want your head back, chin to chest in the hollow body position. That way, even if you’re rotating, it’s a lot worse to land with your head looking up toward the ground. That’s where a lot of neck injuries can come of.
Absolutely. Um, we train our athletes a conditioning technique where they pulled their toes up off the ground, they look at their toes with their shoulders slightly raised above the ground and their arms on top of their thighs. This is the perfect safety fall. Um, and whenever they’re in that position, they’re training, they’re in their core of their. If they’re feeling that conditioning. But if they’re able to hit that and hold it, then whenever they hold that as they’re falling, they’re body is Tumbling Tulsa in the safest position possible. You don’t want to just a flail all about and not know what’s going to hit the ground first.
Now as safety fall, even falling, using the safety falls, not going to feel great, but you more than likely will be able to get up and keep tumbling. Like Colton said. It’s not going to be one of those calling emergency. Get a m south there. You’ll be able to continue tumbling and you can like cones up, Tumbling Tulsa dust yourself off and just keep going.
That’s that. That’s that mental conditioning that we want you to have as an athlete. And then it’s going to take a little bit of mental conditioning as a parent too, because if you’re, if you’re here at our justice tumbling lounge setting on our comfy couches in the air conditioning, uh, watching your athlete on our big screen tv through our cameras. I’m sorry, I had to go. I had to say it. Then, you know, you might, you might freak out a little bit whenever you’re sitting on the couch. Seeing your athlete falling. That is unfortunately, like we said, part of the sport, just know we’re training them to fall correctly. Tumbling Tulsa false smart and we are there as coaches to try to prevent that as much as possible. Absolutely.
