Flying Trapeze

For something completely different I wanted to challenge my fear of heights and take on the flying trapeze. The Trapeze School of New York has a location on the Santa Monica Pier and for $42 on Groupon I got to take a 2-hour beginning class.

Flying Trapeze - Kill and Build Drill

Here's a recent try at a no-call Kill and Build; the timing was a bit off to start, and I could be bringing my feet up higher in the first few force outs, but once I got the swing going things went pretty smoothly.

For those of you unfamiliar, a Kill and Build is a drill you can do on the flying trapeze to improve your swing, particularly the force out. It's all in the name -- you jump from the board, kill your swing (whether by doing pull ups, stretches, or just hanging there), and then build it back up as high as you can until you run out of energy, your hands give way, you get bored, or you have maxed out your swing.

The basic calls I learned for building your swing, starting at front peak: hang straight, right before back peak kick forward, around the time you would normally sweep kick back, and then as much of a force out as you can muster. Keep repeating this until you're swing is high enough to have the time to add back the hollow and sweep, and then pick up your normal swing from there.

Please feel free to respond with a video of your own, especially if you have a different way you build your swing!

Flying Trapeze - Swing

Finally got around to taking a video of my swing on the outdoor rig, albeit after 2.5 hours of flying so I'll admit it's not my best work. Still a slight bend in my knees during my sweeps, a tad early with the hollow, and the sevens are a bit too angled for my liking; I had been throwing half turns earlier and apparently forgot to turn back the switch from swing sevens to half turn sevens. At least I managed a somewhat passable late-twisting cradle, which I was happy with since the net was super flat and clingy after the rain earlier in the day.

Taken at TSNY New York (Pier 40) at staff fly on May 9th, 2012.
