How to Be a Shaolin Kung Fu Master : Tumbling & Flipping in Shaolin Kung Fu
Next, I’m going to show you different rolling,
tumbling, flipping techniques that we do at the Shaolin. Rolling reduce us the chance
of getting injured if we do fall down from a high building or a high wall. Flipping enables
us to run faster just so, just say if somebody’s going to attack us, if we don’t know how to
defend, we can flip away, okay, or we can run away without flipping in aerial and stuff
like that. We can like get away from our enemies. Okay, one of the most basic skill that we
learn in tumbling and flipping is a Front Roll. Front Roll basically works our back
to be stronger and give us the opportunity to move faster, okay. So that’s the Front Roll. Okay, second roll
that I’m going to do is the Shoulder Roll. Shoulder Roll is also known as Side Roll.
So basically we, similar to Front Roll, but their only difference is that we roll it our
shoulder. So, yeah, that’s that. And the third one is the Back Roll. Basically we roll backwards.
Okay. Cartwheel is basically like flipping upside down with both of your legs on the
air. Okay. Butterfly Kick is turning your body on the air with two legs in a horse manner
motion. Nice. And an Air Wheel is a Cartwheel without hands.
