    Hop

    A take off from one foot landing on the same foot.

    Hop
    • Stand on one foot with the other leg flexed at the knee
    • Swing both arms back at the same time as the flexed leg swings back
    • Swing both arms forward and upward
    • Push off from toes of standing leg and swing flexed leg forward to produce force
    • Land softly on the ball of the foot with the knee bent to absorb impact

    Questions à se poser:
    • Am I moving my arms and swing leg together in one fluid motion?
    • Do I land on the same foot as I take off from?
    • Do I use my arms to help produce force?
