Sprin (English Spring jump) of

the Jump through any obstacle, without concerning it. For example, flight through a perilka, a bush or the car. It is carried out most often from running start. In flight application of greb, scissors or other feints is possible. A landing on one or two legs depending on height and distance.

A jump with a beater (English Up from down jump) of

the Jump afar from big height coming to an end with a beater. Unlike a track load of legs much less, but its decrease in - the first requires advance at a landing, in - the second need to be done correctly a beater. Ability is correct to carry out this Basic Element allows a treyser to land from big height and not to injure a leg. Very often a beater the only thing that gives the chance to jump on long distances without depending on a difference of heights.

Blaynd (English Blind jump)

the Variation of a sprin, but its feature that at a push the treyser does not see a landing point. The main thing - during flight to hook on nothing, to count a landing and to itself to sprain nothing.

The gap (English Gap jump) of

As well as blaynd, is one of types of a sprin. Difference is that the overcome obstacle is a gap, that is long distance at height. The trick is carried out both from the place, and from running start. For appearance in flight greba or scissors are used. By the way, the gap can be at the same time and blayndy.

Akuras (English Accuracy) of

the Jump on any small object (for example a handrail or a parapet) and the subsequent deduction of balance on is mute, is carried out from the place. Sometimes at a landing the grasp or a contact of object with hands is used that gives big stability.

Vaults (vaults):

The parapet (English Two hand vault) of

the Vault, are executed on two hands, all body or only legs pass sideways from hands. Maybe will be executed, both in group and without it, or with various feints (for example a jumping jack, scissors or in blow of a leg) it is Often used to overcome high obstacles, for example in human height or to climb on any object.

Tach (English one touch)

the Vault executed on one hand at a right angle to a perilka. In any option, but without rotation.

Decoys (English. Monkey vault)

Two hand vault Option. Decoys it is used extremely often when overcoming parapets or for a zalezaniye on objects. It is a vault flat group, with a support on two hands. It is also possible to carry by a body between hands though just the push hands from a perilka usually becomes. To execute decoys from running start, it is necessary to make a jump in the beginning, then to put hands on a handrail or a parapet. Than earlier you jump out and the your body parallel to the earth, the it will be more beautiful to look decoys. It is also possible to execute on a horizontal bar from the provision of an exit by force, a back, having put legs on a wall near a perilka. Decoys can be made through high obstacles, for example in human height (in this case it is executed without running start).

A jumping jack (English Monkey splits vault) of

the Vault at which the body is in vertical position the support goes on two hands, legs are widely divorced in the parties. It is usually executed with equal legs, at the same time the above legs are raised the more beautifully the trick looks. Socks can be as paralelelno to the earth, and in vertical position (anyway it is necessary aspires to a twine). In other option of a leg are bent, hands very closely to each other.

A reverse (English Reverse vault) of

the Vault with rotation by 360 degrees, and the first over an obstacle there has to pass the back, a body in vertical situation. Rotation can go both through one, and through two hands. It is also possible to do as in group, and having bent. In Russia this jump is also called 360 though between them there are distinctions.


A vault with rotation around hands by 360 degrees. Unlike Reverse vault, on an obstacle you take off face forward. The body can is both in vertical position, and parallel to the earth (in the latter case, usually without group).

Parallel flight (parapet) (English Speed vault) of

the Vault, with use of one hand. A body parallel to a perilka (or to any other obstacle). It is carried out with running start. In flight it is possible to execute scissors, greb, a jumping jack, a kick or other feints.

King Kong (English King kong vault)

the Vault executed as decoys, is only carried out it through long distance. The body has to be parallel to the earth, statement of hands on the far-away country of an obstacle.

A semolina double (English King kong vault (double)) of

Option King - Congo, is only carried out two contacts with obstacle hands (usually about the beginning of an obstacle and at the end). Helps to overcome distances of bigger length.

King - kong with jog by hands (English King kong (running)) of

Varnishes a jump (English King kong splits) of
