It was so nice to see many foundation videos for many basic techniques. However, I am wondering if you guys think of adding ones for invert? I am having some trouble getting the nice straight leg inversion and straight arm inversion.
I am not sure if this question belongs under this topic, but it is the closest I found! 🙂
Is a Secretary Drop considered an open drop in aerial competition circles? To me, it is not, but the definition is throwing me for a loop. “Open wrap drops are those that could go catastrophically wrong if mis-wrapped or that rely only on hand-eye coordination to arrest movement. No open wrap drops that rely on hand-eye coordination for your catch.” Any thoughts / advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Natasha, we wouldn’t consider it an open drop either as both hands are on the tail/preset at the start of the drop. Though that drop has “open drop” elements to it so we could see the argument that it is an open drop. If there’s any question if you’re allowed to use that drop in competition, we’d suggest reaching out to the producers.
