FIRST OF DONT TRY THIS WITHOUT GYMNASTICS EXPERIENCE OR OTHER GUIDENCE.
So you want to run up a wall and do a back flip right. Well all the stuff on “The Matrix” is cool, but actually halfway realistic. Heres How to run up a wall and do a back-flip:
1. Pick a wall(preferably brick) that wont cave in or get damaged. And make sure it is high enough for you.
2. Practice your run-up. When you do it make sure to have your shoulders square to the wall. Take about two or three steps, ending on your dominant foot.
3. The actual run-up. Follow step two.
4. When you hit the dominant foot on your last step, bend your knee slightly, and push with that foot. tilt your head back, and throw your arms back. when you spot the ground, bring your into a pike and land square. 7 years ago
I first saw this done in the film “The Full Monty” when one of the laid off metalworkers wants to audition for the show.
He doesn’t quite pull it off but I always thought it would be cool to do. 7 years ago
i know HOW, but i cant seem to do it. i cant help to think im going to break my neck. it sucks 7 years ago
is to start where theres a nice solid brick wall, and a nice soft ground underneath… start at a distance that is far away and pick up a good speed runnning towards the wall, once you’re at the wall just keep running! 7 years ago
I found some instructions:
Run at the wall with moderate speed. When you are learning this move you’ll need more speed, but once you’ve got it try it with less…it becomes easier.
Looking at the spot your going to put your feet is very important.
Plant your weaker foot (in my case my left) about a metre away from the wall and keep looking at the spot you’re going to place your foot on the wall. This should be about chest height, although it varies. Start leaning back.
Push into the wall, looking at the spot where your foot is. The longer you look at it, the higher you will go. Be prepared to start leaning back.
Lean back! This is very important…if you don’t lean back you won’t make it round. Aim for the horizontal…
Key stage. At this point you should be horizontal, with your trailing (left) leg thrusting upwards to provide the power of the rotation. This is essential.
You should also lean your head back (a general rule of rotations is that your torso follows your head). Arm positioning is not important, and is just down to personal preference. Your ankle does a small flick to complete the rotation.
Keep your head back, and the body follows (although note that the head being tilted backwards is a smooth action, not a jerk – if you jerk, you’ll hurt your neck). You need to keep the rotation of your driving leg going around. This picture shows the end of the flick with my ankle…which produces height and speed of rotation, whilst the driving leg is power.
Hang time, and a small tuck to control the rotation (tight = quick rotation, open = slow). Keep looking at your landing and force your legs round to it. Keep your eyes open to spot it correctly!
Bent knees absorb the landing and retain balance. This is a very high impact move, even on grass – so don’t overdo it.
A swift turn-around takes practice, or you could do a backwards recovery (which is even worse – great if you can pull it off, but good luck!).
This move is much easier than it looks or sounds, and is just a matter of controlling your instincts. You are going upside down, so you must learn to control the instinctive panic that comes from running into a wall, and somehow finding yourself the wrong way up. Focus on becoming horizontal, and really drive that leg skywards to get the rotation over with as quickly as possible.
Supporting is important when learning this move – especially for people not used to flips. Check out this page for advice: http://www.screwgravity.com/tutorials/wall_flip_supported/tutorial_wall_flip_support_spotting.htm 7 years ago
Lord knows I’ve hit the wall enough times – it would certainly be nice to have another option up my sleeve.
But let’s check on my insurance coverage first! (Just in case I’m not as limber as I used to be) 8 years ago
