Gymnastics Skills 3: Unassisted Jumping and High Bar

Gymnastics Skills 3: Unassisted Jumping and High Bar

Modern gymnastics requires athletes to master numerous aerial jumping skills and to perform on various apparatuses, including parallel bars, asymmetrical bars (uneven bars), and the high bar. This program demonstrates the basic elements of forward and backward aerial jumps and familiarizes viewers with the different bars used in gymnastics and the essential skills needed to perform in these events. Viewers learn the importance of momentum, spatial orientation, and precision during each of the three phases of an aerial maneuver: the run and takeoff, the flight, and the landing. They see that technique is much more important than strength in gymnastics, and that structured practice, with a conscientious partner, is the only way to acquire and refine essential gymnastics skills. Students demonstrate a wide variety of exercises, games, routines, and equipment that gymnasts can use to learn aerial somersaults safely and systematically. Viewers also learn how to perform simple turns, inversion turns, Kippler's Movement (an essential momentum-building maneuver), forward rolls, and upward and downward upstarts (mounts) on the horizontal bar, as well as how to combine maneuvers into an integrated routine. The program includes competition footage of spectacular aerial maneuvers performed by world-class gymnasts in several events including the parallel bars, floor exercise, rings, and high bar. 00/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
