How to Do a Flip Jump in Figure Skating
A flip jump is a toe jump. It is performed in competitions and shows. It begins with a mohawk or outside three-turn and takes off from a toe pick. It can be completed as a half revolution all the way to a quad jump.
The flip jump is a toe-assisted version of a loop. For a counter-clockwise jump, a single Salchow is a jump you take off from the left (foot), (skating) backward, on inside edge (so the edge towards your left big toe), you spin once, twice or three times if needed, then land on back outside edge of right leg, with your left leg pulled back behind you. For a flip, you jab your right toepick on takeoff.
Figure out the way you want to flip jump.There are two ways to enter a flip jump: either by outside 3-turn or mohawk.
Turn correctly.If you turn clockwise, you should start you 3-turn on the right foot with your right arm and shoulder in front. If you turn counter-clockwise, you should start your 3-turn on the left foot with your left shoulder and arm in front.
Remain on one foot with skating knee bent and your back inclined slightly forward.Extend your free leg back with your toe pointing down while increasing the bend in your skating knee.
Gently place your free toe into the ice with your leg 'reaching' as far back as you can with your weight still over your left foot.
Push off the toe in the ice.This is where you start the jump.
Once you are in the air, quickly pull your feet and legs together.
As you hit the ice, check out by punching the one hand in front and the other to the side.Lift your free leg and kick it back.
QuestionHow many months will it take for me to master this jump?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIt depends on your skating skills and how much you practice.Thanks!
- If you are landing constantly on two feet, try doing a backspin to get the feeling of landing on one foot back.
- The more revolutions you need, the more you have to pull in, and the more your knees have to bend before the jump. You may have to skate faster, too.
- It is possible to prepare the jump from a Mohawk.
- A Mohawk is a step from forward to backward. For entrance into a flip, step onto your right foot going forward with your right arm in front. Your left arm should be extended backwards. Look back at your ;left hand skating on your right foot, open your left hip, and step backwards. Then extend your right leg back. Reverse if you are a left-handed jumper.
- Check for others when you practice a jump, much like checking for blind spots before you signal and change lanes when you drive. Abort preparing for a jump if the rink is too busy, or if you are already in mid air, when you land, either lower your free leg or don't hold the landing position for too long.
- If your flip jump is coming out of a three turn, extend the leg you are jumping off of during the three turn. This prepares you for the 'reach'. Keep in mind, the farther you reach the more height you will get for the flip jump.
- Skating can be extremely hazardous. Jumps should not be attempted if you are not stable and comfortable in skates. Body awareness and control are essential. Ensure you have your trainer with you or a professional. Falling down while flipping can cause a broken skull on the hard ice.
- Avoid try anything that is above your skating level. Consult your local professionals, or skating instructors, before attempting new things.
