    Tsuk Vault Help Needed!

    My dd is struggling with her tsuk. She is frustrated and she thinks her coach is frustrated with her. (which makes her more frustrated, she is a people pleaser) Her problem seems to be that she is tucking too soon. She bends her legs to tuck while she is still on the table. Being the...

    So lately at gym, i have been working on tsuk timers (half on through to back shoulder stand backwards roll) on a crash mat from vault. Today, I was told that I have plenty of time to flip, so i could try. I was to scared today (only second time working on timers). We dont have a pit, so are...

    Vault: Tsuk Vs Yurchenko

    I have a question regarding the thought process behind what vaults coaches teach and why. My DD is training L9. She did 2 years of L8. 1st year did a 1/2 twist on 1/2 twist off vault. Last year vault finally 'clicked' she did a Tuck Tsuk for most of the year and ended doing a Pike at state...

    Tsuk Vaults?

    I was wondering how to successfully through a tsuk vault. I've practiced many times doing a 1/4 or 1/2 on then pushing off onto a mat, but I've never tried to flip on the real vault. At my old gym I used to do a lot of tsuks into the pit, but I'd always end up on my knees (this was in level 5)...

    Parents *brag* Yeah Tsuk!!!

    DD (10) is now doing her Tsuk on to a crash mat into the pit - very exciting for her (and me too, :eek: ) - I swear I am getting more grey hairs by the day! :cool: And yet her coaches keeping telling us that while she is doing "well" - she must focus harder, put forth more effort, etc...

    Parents Competed tsuk

    My daughter competed her tsuk. She had a rough landing, but good height. She landed briefly on her toes then smacked her knees. I couldn't believe she actually got a score for it, but her coach said as long as she does not put her hands down it counts. 8.3 (no place) But she was thrilled to have...

    Coaches Importance (or lack thereof) of teaching a tsuk to kazamatsu-style twisters

    Up until now, I've always considered a Tsuk to be a very important step in the development of upper-level vaults. When a kid is ready to move on to something harder than a handspring, a tsuk is generally the first choice (or perhaps I should say the progression towards an eventual tsuk is...

    tsuk or yurchenko?

    at all the meets i go to, almost all of the girls level 8 or up do yurchenko vaults... i see very, very few tsuks. just curious - why is this? if you do one of those, which one?
