How to teach the Yurchenko tuck half-twist


In this training course, you'll learn one of the most important techniques you need for gymnastics! It all comes down to this question: how do you initiate twists when moving backward in the second flight on vault?

With this knowledge, you'll be able to teach your gymnasts a Yurchenko tuck half-twist. This technique is identical for more complex vaults like a Yurchenko fulls. For this reason, this training is an essential prerequisite for any vaults with a twist in the second flight.

This video training is made up of four main chapters for a comprehensive understanding of this vault. The first chapter breaks down the skill to examine it in detail, in order to understand when and how to twist. In particular, you will learn why twists in tuck position help with the acquisition of twists with a stretched body.

The second chapter is dedicated to the prerequisites. We often simply list the prerequisites for a movement. And yet, they form more than a simple list, as mastering these prerequisites makes all the difference with the skill progression.

In the third chapter, we'll tackle the skill progression. From the trampoline to the tumble track and on to exercises with short and long run-ups, we'll show you how to teach this movement step by step.
The final chapter is also one of the most important: it examines the spotting technique for a half-twist. Mastering this technique will make all the difference in training. Thanks to you, your gymnasts will learn this half-twist in the second flight much better and more quickly.

We hope you enjoy the training.
