All About Whips

In this series, Sean & Emily teach everything you need to get started in your whips practice. A whip is a dynamic L-basing skill where a flyer swings with momentum through positions. This series is designed for acro practitioners who feel very comfortable with static L-basing poses and transitions. In these lessons we explain terminology of whips, body positioning, progressions and self spotting to lead to safe, predictable and stunning whipping skills.
