Gymnastics Skills 1 (Habilidades Gimnasticas I)

Gymnastics Skills 1 (Habilidades Gimnasticas I)

Safety is an indispensable ingredient in the process of acquiring new physical skills and in building confidence and avoiding injury. Though basic gymnastics skills are performed as an individual, learning those skills requires cooperation, careful planning, and teamwork. In this program, viewers are introduced to the concept of partner training in gymnastics. Students demonstrate the various stages of partnership building, which involve imitating, leading and following, and carrying and supporting your fellow gymnast. Viewers learn specific techniques for assisting (spotting) the gymnast, as well as the importance of always providing quick, close-proximity, center-of-gravity assistance to your partner. Viewers see the mechanics of the pincer grasp (used for spotting somersaults and handstands) and the thigh and hip hold (used for assisting with rolls, springs, and flips), and they learn the dangers of using "joint holds" or "across the body holds" when aiding a gymnast. Diagramming is introduced as a means for planning exercise routines and for ensuring cooperation and coordinated support between gymnast and partner. The program shows numerous exercises designed to develop a sense of trust, responsibility, anticipation, and security between partners, which is necessary for safe and effective gymnastics training. 01/12DE IJSCA 30 min.
