Fundamental Tricks and Common Mistakes

Please take some time to look at the links for my tutorials that provide ideas for how to safely teach Cross ankle release and Marley without pulling on the foot.

Below is a recent Reddit comment that was added to my reply expressing concern about pulling on the foot instead of taking time to strengthen the legs for a move called the suicide spin. I feel so bad for this person and I hope she’s fully recovered now.

Feel free to review the grips mentioned here again.

If you’d like a simplified list of fundamental tricks for only beginner level, here’s what would be included:

  • Pole walk
  • Shoulder slides
  • Pole sit
  • Pole climb
  • Thigh rest
  • Side sit
