Everything you need to know
to unlock the swipe
Find out all tips and tricks to learn it the most efficient way
Cartwheel: as you will place one hand at a time on the floor to throw your legs around yourself, you need to be familiar with the cartwheel.
Coinspin: the coinspin is the entrance motion for all breakdance powermoves. No coinspin, no swipe.
Strength: hold your bodyweight in a plank position & variations.
2 step: perform the move you see in this clip.
What you should be able to do
These body parts need to get ready
Wrists: you will put your entire body weight with momentum on your hands. Stretch and strengthen your wrists.
Shoulders: you will throw your arm around to jump over your back, landing on your arms. Make sure your shoulders are ready to take that impact, by circling them and doing push ups.
Core: your spine will be twisted during airtime. You will have to hold your hips up and keep that tension. Do rotational movements to prepare your spine & core.
Things to avoid
There are 3 main mistakes people do while trying to swipe

Not using the free leg to swing
If you correct these 3 common mistakes, I guarantee you take a major step towards performing a clean swipe.
The swipe is a key component of combining breakdance powermoves.
One of the easiest ones to learn
Low/No chances of getting bruises/injuries (not like the headspin or windmill)
Can perform it on every floor (not like the headspin or windmill)
Not much flexibility required compared to the windmill or flare.

Why learn the swipe?
The key to unlock moves:
To master a complex move like the swipe you need to break it down into small single projects.
Start by learning the two step round starting from a plank position.
It's easier to build it up from there.
One of the progressions is the swipe with both legs touching the floor.
I created a 2 week training schedule to start working on the swipe. Every day you will be guided through a full workout including warm up, preparation exercises and technique training.
Once you finish the program and did not unlock the swipe, you can start again with day one, picking harder progressions.
This option is always available in the entire app. It makes it possible for you to take on any class, workout or program and chose a progression that fits your level. No matter if you are a beginner or advanced practitioner.
This picture shows an example of the progressions options for a functional workout in the app. You can change the level any time you want, even during the workout.
