360 and skin the cat drop prep on the knot

Apparatus: Fabric/Silks
Level: Level 2

I like to have students do a lot of work to earn drops! I find that it not only prepares them for the drop, but they learn how to correct form and clean-up alignment in so many great ways.

Here is an example of using the knot to wrap for two drops -- the 360 dive and the skin the cat drop -- and then walking them down. This video does not show the actual drops, which you can add to these wraps on the knot. It's important to simply start with the walk-downs and NOT teach these on the same day as the drop. This should be the warm-up and review portion on the day that these drops are taught.
