Tsukahara is often the first vault with a salto that gymnasts tackle. Learn how to master it.
In the technical analysis, we'll go through each phase of the skill, from before take-off, to the landing. Discover the actions needed to set up the inversion and the longitudinal rotation.
You'll also take a look at 4 elements to master before beginning to learn Tsukaharas. For each of them, we'll look at the indicators that allow you to be confident that your gymnast is ready.
Next, we'll take a look at a complete set of drills to be able to get to the first Tsukaharas into the pit, and what is then required to be able to do them in a competition set-up.
Our video on spotting will give you two different techniques to use. Together, we'll see how to master them, progressing step by step from a round-off on the floor up to Tsukahara straight.
Discover our series of physical preparation exercises for each of the essential phases of the skill.
Bonus: a "live" segment from a training session with two case studies and 6 different vaults, to teach you to see the mistakes, analyze their significance, figure out where they come from, and find exercises to correct them.
