This page has links to several videos of me (your coach) doing some jumping. I use these videos to study what I do correctly and what I do that can be improved. Watching them one frame at a time is quite revealing. I intend to video tape your jumps and study them also. You will be able to learn a lot from your videos.

The following links are to videos of jumps taken at street vaults or at practices. They have been created for viewing in Windows Media Player (WMP), but other players may also work. Windows Media Player 9 Series (for Windows XP) has the ability to set play speed to 50% for slow motion, and to pause and then single frame advance and reverse. To access those features select View>Enhancements>Play Speed Settings.

Another note, once the file is downloaded to WMP, you can save the file by selecting File>Save Media As and put it in any directory on your hard drive or other storage device. Be sure to maintain the .wmv file name extension. Alternatively, you can right-click on a video link, then select 'Save Sarget As', then select a location on your hard drive to save the file to. Once on your hard drive, you can just double click the file name and it will play.
