PRINCIPLE – PURPOSE

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]This movement is used for getting up and over walls or obstacles that are too high to vault or jump over.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

RISKS

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Putting the kicking foot too low, which may lead to hitting the wall with the knee, head, hands
Land badly if the top of the obstacle is not reached[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

KEY POINTS

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

  • Dynamic and powerful run-up, transitioning momentum from forward to up
  • Find the right distance between you and the wall during take-off. Too close and you won’t be able to push up, the leg being too bent. Too far and your momentum will leaving you stepping too low on the wall, which takes away the energy from the approach
  • Have good foot placement (between knee and waist level)
  • Lift up the knee opposite to the kicking leg
