    Guys, what tips do you have? Either to over come fear or simply just technique. Interested to hear what you think.

    Jump straight up and then tuck tightly. Don't jump backwards. You should land on the same spot. Jump high and tuck, high, tuck. You got this I was the same but got it in a day

    When it comes to the tuck a mans center of gravity is his upper body. You gotta use more of it . Make sure you’re driving your arms all the way up pointing to the sky . Then use your core more to help rotate your hips . After that that try to pull your shin/ toes over more . You shouldn’t back tuck with your calf’s touching your thighs . Think of it as doing a back words roll on the ground but in the air . You can do this ! Come back to this one !

    Despite you not pulling you off... let me get down to a message and vibe you are sending out. I just recently discovered your channel due to recommendations of TVclip.. however, some of them were nothing i was interested in... but then i noticed how incredible you devote yourself to overcome your comfortzone and to literally push yourself of never just sitting down and "resting" on your archivements. I am about to move to the states (will be there for 3 month from November to February for visa etc.) and i feel thrilled to push myself. To learn more things, especially sports wise. So yeah.. you might have not managed to do the backflip. But seeing you facing your inner demons to even attempt it and going so far for your goal of learning something new is amazing to see and it inspired me to continue and move on to see what else i can archive in my life. So thumbs up.. oh! and thanks for the positive vibes your videos send out. Keep on going man. Seems there is a reason why you have 1m Subs

    Teaching myself to backflip when I was 15 was one of the best decisions I ever made. The experience taught me more about how to handle fear and not give up easily than anything else I've ever done.

    I live in London! Can you tell me the address please of the trampoline park? I also go swimming in Brixton Recreation Centre (Which is in London). I really want to learn how to do a backflip on the trampoline 😉😉😉.

  • Ryan Horn

    You’re jumping from the ground to the mattresses that are higher than the ground, this gives you less time to flip. Start from an elevated platform (just like a foot or so above the mattress) then flip onto the mattress, this will give you more time to rotate and finish the whole flip. Then gradually lower the platform until you’re eventually even with the mattress

  • Mehdi Talebi
    Mehdi Talebi 29 days ago

    The way to do it is to first learn to control yourself in the air and not to panic. First master it on the trampoline then attempt to do it on ground.
    Otherwise you will make very slow progress

  • ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ

    First time I did it, I did it straight on grass and just tried as hard as I could to flip because I really didn’t want to hurt myself. Like my fear of hurting myself was my motivation to land it first try and that was the same as the first time I didn’t my front flip. You legit just gotta use your fear of your hurting yourself to just do it

  • Rigil Kentaurus

    how to front flip
    1: go a decent hight
    2: raise your hands up
    3: at the highest point of the jump throw your hands down, turn, and grab your legs
    4: land like a normal jump
    Dont feel scared to land on your neck, you'll likely land on your legs rarely your back or neck if you do it right

    That happened to me, btw part 2 will probably I. A year or so because when I tried a backflip 1080 I couldn’t get the turn in and landed on my head and was stuck for 2 years

  • Enrico Caruso

    I'm not a stuntman but I think you should work for a vertical jump and not a horizontal jump; training on the mattress you jumped too far from the start point. Anyway, I like what you are doing, I think you improved the learning ability that every person has. Great job ;)

    The difference between doing a backflip on the ground vs the trampoline is that there’s support on the tramp that even if you fall it won’t hurt as much, on the ground there’s this scary feeling to do the flip, I commend you for trying.
