Knowing these 8 fundamental landing positions is vital. They help keep you safe and knowing them helps you learn to perform more advanced skills correctly and safely later on. The information on this video is the basis of all safe trampolining. This is your chance to receive vital safety and basic skills instruction from one of the greatest performers in the sport.

The trampoline bouncers most at risk of a mishap are those who are self taught (or more accurately self MIS-TAUGHT). Watching this expert video should put any bouncer at significantly less risk of a mishap. Professionally coached bouncers are usually SAFE bouncers. Those who have never had any instruction are usually most at risk of a mishap.
