I’ve always been intimidated by the double bounce walk. It has a lot to do with a general lack of understanding. I’ve attempted them a couple of times, and done a few professionally, but I’ve always just dove right in and attempted to pull one off based on my general understanding of a standard walk. I’ve never taken the time to really study one, or focus on the Preston Blair or Richard Williams examples. That always lead to a lot of wasted time, as I tried to clean up the poor results it would produce. A lot of head wobbling and jittering, rather then the smooth up-down-up down of the best double bounces.
For this exercise I decided I would do a trick-or-treater, holding a bag of candy in the near hand. Of course, I never got past the roughs, but I plan to finish this one up over the Christmas break.© Copyright 2011 John Hill, All rights Reserved. Written For: Awesometania
