I understand exactly what your saying, but if you're asking questions anyway, which is what many of these posts are (questions about help with techniques), the coach must not be very much help anyway,
essimist: and if they are, sometimes it doesn't help to have a second opinion if the first one isn't working. For example, my daughter could not get her handstand (not a long one). After reading some of the posts on this board, I learned this technique.
1st stand up straight and lean forward with your knees straight without falling.
2nd lean backwards without falling.
The way that your toes dig into the ground to keep you from falling forward and your heels to keep you from falling backwards is the same with your hands in a handstand. Along with a tight body.
After explaining that to my daughter, she can now do a very long handstand. So a BIG thanks to the coach who posted that.:applause: I wanted to go back and say thankyou, but couldn't find the post.
Although this didn't need a video, some people are doing things wrong and that's why they cannot get the skill down, so a video clip would help the coaches here see mistakes.
