TIP #1: LOOK UP! look up. When your chin is down and your shoulders are rounded forward, jumping can feel like you’re wearing a backpack full of rocks.
Don’t believe me? Try this!
Drop down into a frog squat. Look straight down and jump up as high as you can. Then look UP and jump as high as you can.
If your body is like mine, you’re going to feel lighter and be able to jump higher when your spine is straight. So, keep your head up and your eyes on the horizon if you want to take off like a rocket.
TIP #2: KEEP YOUR HANDS UP! If you’re auditioning for a superhero movie, you can let your hands flip and flop. But if you’re bold enough to think about using a jump kick for self-defense, you must protect yourself at all times.
Land with your guard up just in case you miss or they see you coming. The goal is to hit the ground fighting, not posing for pictures.
