Personal Goal: GCD
I have been working on my tumbling skills from level 1-4 for the past 6 years. It was my dream to do a level 5 tumbling skill someday and it is very advanced compared to level 4. Doing a Level 5 tumbling skill on a normal mat is an AMAZING thing because cheerleading is not a popular sport in Japan. People who can accomplish the skill nor stand on that level is pretty rare, statistically speaking; out of 100 people, only 2% of the people can manage to achieve full twist. It contains strong core-body and strength. It may also cause a lot of injuries therefore, I need to aware of my body when practicing.
My goal is to be able to to do a round-off full twist perfectly on a cheer mat with confident. I would like to accomplish my goal until next year February. It has been less than a year working on this tumbling skill and I am almost there. Usually, It takes me half a year to be confident and uses it in a competition, however, I realize this skill is not taking as much time as I thought. My plan to accomplish my goal is to go to a private tumbling class at least 4 times a month and practice for an hour. During my winter break, I would like to take my tumbling class for 2 hours and ask my mom to watch me so that she can give me comments. It would benefit me to know her side of view when I did bad and when I did well to analyze me strength and weakness.
Reflecting on the progress, I am able to do a twist on my own with no supporter. However, personally, I think I am scared to do it on my own because there is part of me where I think it is dangerous and has no trust in myself. Therefore, I make sure my coach would be next to me when something went bad. This shows I am still not confident in myself and I would like to change that soon. I can tell myself I am almost there to do it on a real cheerleading mat and not sprinkle.
