Chronus24 Posted January 27, 2009 Report Share Posted January 27, 2009 Granted, while anything that combines jumping and turning in the air is my achilles' heel (except double assamble), I'm having a particularly difficult time with double saut de basque. I'm getting stuck in the air while facing front-ish, than having to land and fudge the rest of the revolution (though it's not exactly "fudging"it since it's quite obviously not working). For the life of my I cannot figure out how to generate more angular momentum without either looking VERY spastic or risk ending up horizontal and landing on my face. I've tried messing around with the brush to a la second, tried throwing my trailing arm in to first during the jump, and tried the whole "turn with your back" thing, but still get stuck facing the mirror at the height of the jump and then landing awkwardly...I have a feeling I'm doing something wrong when bringing the other leg into passe', but I've yet to figure out what exactly, even if that is the case. Any suggestions? Quote Link to comment
